Dog Treats

September 8th, 2008

Baking is so sad for my dogs.  Inevitably, they will sit at my feet for hours while I bake some delicious treat, and then I will completely refuse to let them have even a tiny bite — chocolate is poisonous for dogs (poor dogs — life without chocolate!), and sugar isn’t good for them either.  So one afternoon, I decided to bake something especially for my little puppies.

There are actually two of them — Calvin is the one in the first picture, sitting patiently and staring at his treat hoping that I’ll let him have it, and Coco is the one in the next picture, happily biting hers right out of my hand.  (Coco is also the one who had a little cameo at the end of my last podcast!)

Also, I am a dope because I cut these out using heart and sun shaped cookie cutters, and realized later that I had bought dog bone cookie cutters at some point, and then forgotten all about them.  Fortunately, Calvin and Coco didn’t seem to care too much.

Last but not least, Chad and I are actually going to Hawaii (!!!) so there won’t be any new updates on this site until next week.  Fortunately, our dogs will have homemade treats to remember us while we’re gone — and in case any of you have hungry pooches in the meantime, I suggest making a batch of these!

Peanut Butter Dog Treats
Adapted from Brown Eyed Baker

2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup skim milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Add wet mixture to dry, and mix well.

Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out shapes. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.

Makes about 20-30 dog biscuits.

    Hi. I’m a Girl Scout and I need to complete a badge. I need to ask you some questions:
    What was it like to design your own website?
    What were your preparations prior to creating the site?
    Do you plan to make more websites similar to are you just going to continue adding information to this site?
    Where did you get the information for your website?
    Did you create the site with anyone else?
    I love the idea for your website and I actually used it for my dog’s birthday. I had a lot of fun making the treats. I will definitely remember your website in the future.

    I love dogs and my golden retriever Molly loves peanut butter or any treat for that matter. Do you have any recipes that do not have wheat flour in them or what can I substitute wheat flour with.

  • 14 Katy // Oct 29, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    You should be able to use regular all purpose flour instead!

    these are a great, simple treat!  stella loved them!

  • 21 josie // Jul 19, 2012 at 10:41 am

    My dogs totally loved these!! I gave them a choice between store bought bacon flavored treats and the peanutbutter treats, and they went for the peanutbutter once without hesitation!! We didn’t have enough whole wheat flour, only like 1 cup worth, so I just put in that and another cup of all purpose flour they came out fine.

  • 22 samIam // Jan 7, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    They’re in the oven now! I added cheese like commenter above suggested and they smell great! I think I’ll give them to my friend’s dog as a late Christmas/New Year gift as well! great easy recipe, thank you! 🙂

  • 23 David // May 4, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    Katy, our mini schnauser loves peanut butter, which we give him occasionally. He really likes these treats, so thanks for the recipe. We used smaller cookie cutters, so the recipe made about 60 treats.

    Hello! I could have sworn I’ve visited this site before but after looking at a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me.

    Here’s my situation with this idea, it sort of assumes each and every youngster wants to understand.
    I hated primary college, and only at any time did function if
    the teacher was in the room watching me and also other college students do it.
    I like training? now (just finishing college(UK) but all by way of principal
    and secondary training I’d only ever do the bare minimal,
    and I don’t feel leaving a kid to just get on with their studying
    on a computer would actually operate within the very same way as becoming inside a classroom with a teacher.
