  • 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 use plain yogu

I use plain yogurt and double the egg. The yogurt is easier to digest than milk. I also add honey which is fine for dogs because the bees have digested it once little pup loves these!

My dogs LOVED it

My dogs LOVED it! My dog Haji would follow me around the house for HOURS waiting to eat the treats. Apparently, I'm the Muffin Man. Haji says that they are scrumptious. Five stars! Thanks! ^_^

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. :)
