Special Occasion Dog Bones / Biscuits

Most dogs love peanut butter. You can cut these into bone shapes, people shapes, or simply shape like cookies. I have changed the name of this recipe due to the review from DogAndCatDoc. Please read the review before making. Thank you DogAndCatDoc for your review.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Stir together the flour and baking powder; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the peanut butter, milk and brown sugar. Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into shapes using cookie cutters. Place 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

Looks like a lot of fun...but just a quick reminder where two different medical conditions would make these contra-indicated. First one: allergies...so many of our canine friends suffer from food allergies that manifest as ear and skin infections (can also have respiratory or GI symptoms). Wheat is a common allergen. So if you have a dog with undiagnosed skin and ear problems, probably better pass on these. Second: obesity. The nutrient breakdown did not include the peanut butter, but I can assure you these are very high in both fat and calories, so if "Max" is a little portly, better try a light version or skip all together. OK...climbing down off my soap box...for a large number of dogs this recipe will be just fine and perhaps even better than the pre-made treats with unknown fillers and low quality ingredients, but as always, there is no one-size fits all...so be sure that your pet qualifies for this special little treat..then go ahead and use in moderation!

Thank you, Chef Mommie! My dog loves these. I was a bit worried because I only had 1/2 cup of peanut butter, but they turned out just fine and were so easy to make. Rather than using our bone-shaped cookie cutter, I used the top of a spice container. The cookies look just like vanilla wafers. This will become a regular treat for our pup.

Baking powder is apparently bad (toxic) for dogs. I would omit the baking powder if you are making these
