Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats

I like making people happy with desserts, if you haven’t figured that out already. Friends, family, co workers, strangers – it doesn’t matter. Nothing makes me happier than hearing the “mmmms” and seeing the grins on their faces after eating a cooking/cupcake/other sugar laced deliciousness.

Sometimes it feels good to make the furry friends happy too, like these guys!

And they even let me share some with this little cutie & a few other friends.

Seriously, those puppy dog eyes are too precious.

I was at Sur La Table the other day wanting to buy everything in site, as usual, and saw this adorable little fire hydrant cookie cutter! I figured making fire hydrant sugar cookies without being friends/knowing a fire fighter seemed kind of strange, so dog treats it was!

Also, I feel kind of bad for the little guys who sit by my feet as I bake, hoping that I will drop scraps of deliciousness on the floor for them. Usually I do, but unfortunately for them I make a lot of chocolate things so you’ll generally find me yelling “DON’T EAT THAT!” and dodging to grab it before they slurp it up. So here you go my little pups, homemade peanut butter doggy treats!

Oh, and did I mention that they’re made with whole wheat flour? Healthier than the cookies I make for humans, I know, crazy. I’m not going to lie, I tried a tiny bit of these cookies. I mean come on, I had to…right? Note to future self: Don’t try dog treats. They’re not yummy for humans, but the dogs sure did like them! 🙂

Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats


  • 4 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water (more if needed)


  1. In a mixer, combine flour, sugar and salt. Add in eggs and peanut butter, then slowly pour in oil. Add enough water until dough is smooth.
  2. Cover and let dough rest for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375ºF.
  3. Roll out dough to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut out cookies with cookie cutter and place on baking sheet. These cookies don't spread so feel free to keep them close to eachother.
  4. Bake until slightly browned, and fairly hard, 20-30 minutes.

  3. These look great-but I don’t have whole-wheat flour. Could I use All-Purpose flour instead?
