  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup nonfat milk


Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, egg and peanut butter.

Step 2

Paula’s note: as a general rule, most homemade dog biscuits do well with 1 part liquid to 3 parts dry. You can customize the recipe by adding and subtracting ingredients your dog likes.

Step 3

Add in the flour and baking powder to make a very stiff dough, using your hands to work in the last of the flour if necessary.

Step 4

Flour a work surface and roll out dough to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into desired sizes depending on the size of your dog.

Step 5

Bake on a parchment-lined baking tray at 325° for approximately 20 minutes. Turn biscuits over and bake for an additional 15 minutes.

Step 6

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Dog biscuits can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.

I read that you

I read that you should not feed your dog leavening agents such as baking powder, it is not good for them. I leave it out in dog treat recipes and they turn out fine. Thanks for sharing !

I am making these now!! My dogs love them. I used rice flour because of the one dog has allergies. They still turned out great!

My border/cairn

My border/cairn terrier mix ( Toby ) is the pickiest dog I can think of. However, this is one of the only treat recipes he happily snarfs down. He even begs for more!!! I will definitely be making this often. Thank you for this recipe. Toby is now eating WHATEVER we give him in his bowl... and that's a whole lot!

Ok, lets start b

Ok, lets start by saying I am not a cook. That being said these things were the easiest thing to make and my dogs absolutely loved them. My mom also had a taste since they were made from all natural human ingredients and said while a little bland except for the peanut butter they were not bad. :)
