Peanut Butter Dog Treats

A basic recipe for your peanut butter loving dogs! Made with 3 standard ingredients. Nothing artificial in these treats. Just peanut butter, eggs, and flour. Easy enough… right? 

I was able to make 3 1/2 dozen (1 1/2 inch) bone shaped dog treats. They didn’t last long in our house. The dogs loved these adorable, bone shaped peanut butter treats. I’m pretty sure your dog will too!

Here’s what I did:

I whisked together the peanut butter and eggs. I stirred in the flour, until the flour has been absorbed. This dough will be stiff and crumbly, at first. You need to squeeze it together, and the warmth of your hands will make it workable. I lightly floured the counter, and the top of dough. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes. Place them on a baking sheet (they can be placed close together, and touching. They won’t spread). Bake in a 350 F degree oven, for 30 minutes. I turn off the oven, and I allow the treats to stay in the cooling oven. This makes sure they will become dry and crunchy.

Peanut Butter Dog Treats – Makes 3 1/2 dozen (1 1/2 inch bone shaped treats)  peanut butter dog treats

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

 

Step One: Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees. Whisk together the peanut butter and eggs. Stir in the flour. Continue to stir until all the flour has been absorbed. Form into a dough (the dough will be stiff, and crumbly). Squeeze the dough together and shape into a ball. 

Step Two: Flour the counter, and roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes. Place on a baking sheet (treats can be touching, they won’t spread).

Step Three: Bake in the preheated oven, for 30 minutes. Allow treats to completely cool, before giving to your dog.

Note: I keep the treats in the oven, while it’s cooling. This helps make sure that the treats will be dry and crunchy.

      My mother-in-law, found that bone shaped cookie cutter, at a thrift shop. I’m sure if you check online, you could find one similar. You could also use the rim of a small glass, to cut out treats. Hope your dogs like them!

      I did try out a cat treat recipe, but they came out way too hard. The cats didn’t want anything to do with them! 😀 Still in the works for a good cat treat recipe.

      Hi Lindsey!

      Thanks for your feedback! :-) I know this dough was thick and a little stiff to start out. If you keep working with it – it will bake up great treats for the dogs. If the original method seems too difficult or too much work, I can suggest pinching of pieces of the dough and placing the pieces onto the baking sheet. And bake them like that. The great thing about this recipe is that it’s made with real ingredients and nothing artificial to risk getting your dog sick. :-)

      I highly recommend trying my “Homemade Bacon Dog Treats” – these are my go-to recipe for dog treats. Another simple treat recipe and the dough is so soft and very easy to work with. Here’s the link http://vanessabaked.com/homemade-bacon-dog-treats/

      Thanks for stopping by! And happy baking! :-)

      Hi Majhia,
      The treats can last two weeks or more, as long as they’re dry and crunchy.

    I added water so it’d stick together better
