Peanut butter DOG cookies

14 Feb


*Brought over from the old blog


When we first brought Edgar home we spoiled him with very expensive organic dog treats. He loves them. His favorite are these freeze dried chicken chunks that we like to call puppy crack because when he gets a whiff of that bag opening he runs from the other side of the house and practically jumps into your arms. I knew that those treats were not affordable for long term.

One day we went garage sale hunting and I came across a tiny dog bone cookie cutter and I suddenly realized I could make dog treats! That began my search for an easy healthy treat recipe. A lot of the recipes I found required me to cook with meat because obviously dogs love meat! I wanted something easy though and not requiring me to puree and strain meat chunks.

My search found a basic peanut butter recipe that I altered to be a little bit healthier.



2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tbsp baking powder (Rumford brand because it is aluminum free)

1 cup organic natural peanut butter (because of the no sugar aspect)

1 cup organic milk



In a bowl mix all dry ingredients together then add the wet. You will need to use your hands to work with the peanut butter. It makes a really easy dough when finally combined. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut out dog treat shapes!



Bake on a cookie sheet in a preheated oven at 375′. You need to watch them closely because they can burn easily.


I usually bake for 5-8 minutes on one side then flip the cookies to other side and cook another 5-8 minutes. Depending on your oven they could go for a total of 20 minutes. Just watch them! Allow them to cool before giving to your puppy.


Store in airtight container.

You can get creative and add pumpkin puree, sweet potato etc. We are cautious about over indulging him with these since they are made with wheat.

Through tiny people's tantrums, quotidian duties, marriage, grief, and way too much Netflix, there is Beauty with a big B. It's fragrant, it's healing, it's distinct. This is how I gather bouquets of thorny, wild Light - still covered in dirt and probably a few stinging bugs. It's a bit messy here, but I'm honored to have you and I hope you find some of the Good Stuff.
