Easy Peanut Butter Dog Treats that you bake like a cookie. Your fur babies will LOVE these simple treats!
Meet my baby girl Abby!! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen pictures of her here when she first came to live with us six months ago, and here with her best bud (and my grand pup!) Ricky or here with the the other feline girls that rule my house.
Abby is the sweetest dog and has me and Alan wrapped tightly around her little paws! So much so that I’m baking treats just for her! NEVER in a million years did I think I would be one of THOSE pet owners. Well, here I am sharing a biscuit recipe for pups!
After we lost our dog buddy it has taken us a long time to warm up to having another pet in the house. We were content with the two cats, but we still visited our local Animal Friends Rescue Project quite often hoping for the perfect pup match.
We didn’t want to adopt another older dog this time around. We had buddy for five years and he was such a good dog.
Old age sucks, even for animals! We also didn’t think we had the energy it takes to train a pup, so when we learned that Abby needed to be rescued (she was once adopted and then returned after six months) we practically ran to meet her before anyone else tried to swoop her up. She was shy, reserved, and we both fell in love with her at first sight.
This baby girl was found running in the Salinas Valley fields and boy can she run! We’ve had to chase after her more than once! Now she loves the beach and has relaxed a bit more.
She’s not a cuddle bug, but she does want us near her and will get anxious when we leave her at the house alone (which is every day!), but before I leave she’ll roll over and I’ll rub her chest, then I carry her to her blanket, give her Peanut Butter Dog Treats, and remind her that we’re coming back and we love her! Yep. One. Of. THOSE. XO
Even if you don’t have a pup of your own be sure to keep this recipe handy for gifts for your dog loving friends! They’ll appreciate the homemade Peanut Butter Dog treats as much as their dog does!
I found mini flower cookie cutters that I used to cut out these treats, and for the last bit of the dough I rolled it and cut little square shapes. For a bigger dog you can make larger treats. Abby is a trim 24 pounds 🙂
Peanut Butter Dog Treats
- 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup milk (1% or fat free)
- 1 cup peanut butter (natural - no sugar or salt added)
Gluten Free Option - replace whole wheat flour for gluten-free oat flour and oats.
Store in the refrigerator.
How long are these good for?
A couple of weeks unless you freeze them. In that case they’ll last a couple of months. I rotate mine by storing in the freezer and take what I want out and put in the refrigerator.

I have to make these for my four legged grandson!!! He’s going to LOVE me even more than he already does…if that’s possible!
I am sure you made your cute dog very happy with these bites!

Awwwww… rescue dogs are the best! <3 We have a rescue papillon named Charlie, and he is definitely a member of the family. I can't wait to make these treats for him! 🙂
Charlie! I’m going to have to look through your blog to see if I can get a glimpse of him! So sweet that your daughter will grow up with him 🙂

Awe…she is a sweetie! I know my dog (also a rescue) would love these treats!!
Animals are the most appreciative beings! Well, I take that back…my cats may not fall in the category! LOL

Your Abby is just precious. My brother has a rescue dog too and I know he would love these treats as well!
Thanks, Joy! She’s a pretty special pup!
Abby is adorable. We have a rescue too and she loves peanut butter. I might have to make here these for her birthday.
These would make a great birthday treat, Christie!
Abby is a cutie, and a very fortunate doggy! We have three dogs that would love these treats. I’ll make them up a batch and we will all give Abby a toast!
Oh, what fun! Never a dull moment at your place with three dogs!
She is such a sweetheart. These dog biscuits are great. They are easy and with peanut butter, I’m sure the dogs love them.
Proof that EVERYONE loves peanut butter 🙂
Abby is such a sweetie! I bet she was so happy to get these special treats. I made some awhile back for “Buddy” on his his 2nd bday. I made so much and froze some so just take out a couple now and then…
Abby definitely shows her wagging tail in appreciation! Oh, I’m going to freeze some of these. Thanks for the tip!
Your Abby is so cute, and she sure is one lucky pup.
Thank you, Norma! We think we’re the lucky ones. She’s a great furry member to have!
aww, how sweet, and I’m one of “those” people, nuttin wrong with that. 😉
hehee! Thanks Shelby!
Your Abby is a sweetie! Our last dog had allergies and we had to limit her treats. I’m so glad I can make these for Izzy—she’ll be SO happy!!
Izzy is growing up so quickly! I can’t believe how much since you first got her. So precious 🙂
