Easy Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Dogs will go nuts for these super delicious, super easy homemade peanut butter biscuits.

When Teddy first tried these peanut butter biscuits at his first ever dog party, it was love at first bite and I knew I had to have a crack at making them myself.

So when Bailey’s mum, Doris, pointed me in the direction of this You Tube recipe I tweaked it to my (or should I say Teddy’s taste) and now I can’t stop making them, won’t stop making them.

This recipe yields a most generous batch and they’re best enjoyed fresh. I find the longer I keep them, the softer they get, not that Teddy seems to mind. We’ve shared them with at doggy daycare, with neighbours and with park friends and they’ve been a huge hit!

Our neighbour Fifi is a big fan!

So much so that I decided to make a batch for Teddy’s ‘T’ party where they were supaw popular. The dogs couldn’t get enough of them. So many pawrents asked me for the recipe, that it would have been rude not to share!

If your dog doesn’t tolerate wheat flour very well, you can use rice or coconut flour instead. Just be sure to use the best quality peanut butter that you can afford and use one without sugar and if possible, without salt. Do check the label and check that the peanut butter does not contain xylitol which is toxic for dogs.

As this recipe only contains one egg, the biscuits won’t rise much, so assume that the thickness of the cookie dough cut will be the same as the thickness of the biscuits. Depending on the cutter you use, you may have to make the biscuits in two batches, I like to stash the excess dough in the fridge while I’m waiting for the first batch to cook.

Technically, these biscuits are human safe too but they’re not very sweet so they’re not nearly as delicious to us as they are to our furry friends.

Have you ever made treats for your dog? Are you a peanut butter fan?
