Homemade Dog Treat Recipe–Peanut Butter Cookies

Homemade Dog Treat Recipe on EverythingEtsy.com - DIY Gift Idea!!!

Homemade dog treats are the perfect way to pamper your pets!

I know I’m not alone in my love of dogs!  I consider our dogs as a members of the family….spoiled ones, for sure!

In the past I’ve purchased homemade treats for them at a little pet boutique, but they can be pretty pricey.  I knew I could make them myself WAY cheaper so I gave it a shot!

I LOVE the way these turned out and I plan on making them on a regular basis.  At least I’ll know exactly what they’re eating, and they jump up and down for them so I’m pretty sure that means they’re yummy!

Homemade Dog Treats - Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

I used a dog cookie cutter that I found at Williams Sonoma.  It’s a great size for big dog treats.

Homemade Dog Treat Recipe – Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup reduced fat milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup peanut butter {smooth}
  • 2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of baking soda

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

Whisk the milk, one egg and peanut butter together in a large bowl.

Add the flour and baking soda to create a lovely dough.  You may need to use your hands to work in all the flour.

Flour a surface to roll out your dough.  Cut out shapes like dogs, bones or make mini circle peanut butter cookies for small dogs.  1/4” thickness is awesome…but a little thicker works.

Make a quick egg wash by whisking together one egg and a couple teaspoons of water.  Brush a thin coat on your dog treats before putting them in the oven.

I used an Airbake Insulated Cookie Sheet and parchment paper while baking. {These are two of my favorite things!}  They equal perfect baking and no mess…that works!

Bake 15 minutes on one side and flip to bake 10 more minutes on the other side. {Don’t forget to brush on egg wash before baking!}

Remove and cool.

Store them in an airtight container for a week or in the freezer for up to 2 months.

    These treats look delicious, I think I may have to try one. LOL And I love the dog shape, I definitely need to get one of those cookie cutters. I was wondering about substituting some of the ingredients. Do you think these would come out OK if I used almond milk? I was also thinking about using whole wheat flour.

    I just know my dogs are going to love these treats, thanks for sharing. :)
