Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats

I love my dogs and I would be the first to admit that they part of the family. Since they are part of the family, I want them to be taken care of too. In the past, we have posted the Top 5 Coconut Oil Uses for Pets and We’re Coconuts for our Pups which is another homemade treat recipe!

This weekend we shared our love of animals with one of our newer stores Groovy Cats & Dogs at their 3rd annual Natural Paws-a-Palooza!

For the event we baked Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats!


2 cups whole-wheat flour

1 tbsp. baking powder

1 cup peanut butter (chunky or creamy)

1 cup milk

2 tbsp. coconut oil

Before Baking


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F
  2. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder
  3. In another different bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead
  5. Roll dough to ¼ inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes
  6. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until lightly brown

They seemed to be a big hit with all the dogs at the event! Let us know if you try this recipe for your four-legged friend.

    Is it safe to assume that you mix the coconut oil with the peanut butter and milk?

    I have to tell you that my dog just loves coconut oil and since I have been giving it to her, her color has come back.

      Karen, I am so glad to hear that your dog loves coconut oil! Yes, you mix all of the ingredients together to make the dough. I hope your dog enjoys these treats too!

    Can you substitute coconut or almond milk? Thanks!

      Indeed you can! We use almond milk in a lot of our recipes and it tastes delicious. It’s also better for you..and your pups in this case!

    Can you replace the wheat flour with oat flour? I have a dog with wheat allergy.
    I look forward to trying the recipe if I can use the oat flour instead.

      Carrie, you should be able to replace the 2 cups of whole wheat flour with 1 1/2 cups of oat flour (1 cup whole wheat flour = 3/4 cup oat flour). Let us know how it turns out!

    How long do you think these should last in a airtight container on the counter?

    • January 29, 2015 at 10:09 am

      Kerri – My dog ate them all up before they had the chance to go stale. They should last at least 1-2 weeks though.

    Are these more of a soft treat? Mine didn’t see to come out hard or crisp.

      Hello Lynn,

      If I’m not mistaken when we made these a few years ago they were more of a hard treat. I’m sure if you happened to take them out of the oven a tad bit sooner than the 10 minutes there is a possibility that they could have stayed in more of a soft texture. Regardless if they are soft or hard, your pups are bound to love these delicious yummies!

    My dog loved these.. Ate them very quickly.. Until I get back out to get more whole-wheat flour can I use regular white flour for the time being?

    • July 22, 2015 at 1:45 pm


      Glad to hear your pups loved them! You can use regular white flour in this recipe. We just chose whole-wheat flour for the health benefits, but the other one would be fine 🙂

    These treats sound delicious and my dogs LOVE peanut butter. Even better, I should be able to find organic brands for all of these ingredients. 🙂

    • July 27, 2015 at 1:16 pm


      Our pups loved them! Yes, it’s so great to be able to know what ingredients that your dog will be consuming 🙂 Hope you like the recipe!

    I have my own dogs plus 2 to 3 fosters at a time here. How many does this recipe make approx. Also, if I get really ambitious and double the recipe can these be frozen until I’m through the first batch?

    • January 7, 2016 at 1:36 pm


      This recipe makes around 20-25 treats, depending on how large you make them. You can most definitely put them in the freezer!

    Can a diabetic pup have milk? I am having trouble getting her adjusted to good, homemade treats. Thank you so very much

    • January 26, 2016 at 12:31 pm


      We advise you to contact your vet to check on this. Hope you’re able to find a good recipe for her!

    Where the recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, I’m assuming that that is melted?not the solid white stuff?

    I am curious about a coconut oil dog treat that would encorporate pumpkin puree? I have also read that I can use uncooked cream of wheat to replace the flour?

  13. October 31, 2016 at 7:29 pm

    Is there a substitute for milk my dogs allergic to it?

    • November 4, 2016 at 10:46 am

      Tracey, Could your dog have almond milk? You could try that instead!
