Homemade Dog Biscuits

Our three dogs have affectionately come to replace my brother, sister and me now that we no longer live at home. The three boys, Bacsi (English Yellow Labrador), Buckley (English White Labrador) and Becks (Bernese Mountain Dog) are more human than pet, and they are collectively 270 pounds of pure love.

What better way to show them affection than with a homemade treat? These DIY dog biscuits are made with just four ingredients. Simply mix whole wheat flour and oats with peanut butter and hot water, then use your favorite cookie cutters to stamp out shapes.


Homemade Dog Biscuits

Yield: About 15 dog biscuits

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 30 min


1 cup oats
2 cups whole wheat flour, plus additional for rolling out the dough
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cups hot water


Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

In a large bowl, stir together the oats and whole wheat.

Add the peanut butter and hot water and stir or knead the dough until thoroughly combined. If the dough appears dry, add additional hot water, 1 tablespoon at a time.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough to ¼-inch thickness then use a cookie cutter to cut out the desired shapes. Scraps can be re-rolled.

Arrange the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake the cookies for 30 minutes, or until they are crunchy. Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and let rest until completely cooled.

    OMG those dogs are so precious. Great picture. Thanks for the dog treat recipe. I have a catahoula leopard dog, and she will steal anything off the counter, not so much to eat, but to hoard. I was making mango salsa yesterday and went to get the mangos, and she had them in her stash pile. Not eaten, just stashed! She is a mess, but I love her.
    Thanks again for the recipe
