Homemade Dog Treats

in Biscuits

Like most girls, I’ve thought about what my wedding will be like….err maybe only once or twice (or three times). I think a farm wedding in the summer would be straight up dreamy;  with a barn, and tall grass, mason jars and fireflies–it’d be magic. It got me sort of thinking about how awesome it would be to have a petting zoo, too. A freakin’ petting zoo! How amazing would that be?!  Now, I usually have huge issues with petting zoos, because while I LOVE petting farm animals, I don’t really dig petting goats–they kinda suck.  I don’t get them. We don’t get each other.  And that’s usually all petting zoos consist of…that and random chickens that want nothing to do with you. Kinda boring.

So at my future wedding’s petting zoo, there will be animals I do wanna pet like dogs, cats, pigs, and miniature horses.  And I will pet them in between dances and knocking down champagne, and so will my guests.  It’ll be lovely.

And you know how you you’re supposed to give guests, like, a little gift bag or something? Well, I’d want to give the animals gifts too.  I’d probably give the pigs the leftovers from the reception, the miniature horses would get some sweet apples, I’d give the cats some private time…and the dogs, well, I’d make them these homemade treats.  I bet they’d really like them because I gave them a try and they’re not half bad. Sooo if your dog is peering over your shoulder as you’re reading this blog post, you can tell them this: these treats have a predominate peanut buttery taste, the texture is hearty and nourishing due to the rolled oats, and the finish has a lovely hint of coconut and chicken.  Yum!

{Chuck and my little brother, Daniel.  Chuck will be getting a care package this week and these will be included–he’s pumped about them.}

Homemade Dog Treats

Recipe tweaked from Shared Sugar

Print this recipe!

I added virgin coconut oil to the batter because it’s awesome for dogs and humans alike.  If you don’t have coconut oil on hand, and don’t want to run to the store, simply replace it with olive oil.

1/2 cup of peanut butter (I used the creamy kind)

1/4 cup honey

1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil (or olive oil)

1 cup chicken broth

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth. In a separate bowl, combine flours and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Place dough on flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about 1/4” inch thick. Use a small bone cookie cutter to cut out cookies. My cookie cutter was a 5-inch bone-shaped , but for small dogs you may want to use a small cookie cutter (around 2″). Roll out leftover scraps and cut out as many as possible. Put cut out cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.

Oh. Sweet.


Stacia April 29, 2010 at 11:13 am

Well, now I’m at a crossroads. I can’t think of a better excuse for a little more bonding time with my doggy. But, she’s getting a little…”voluptuous” or “curvy” as we like to put it. Okay, okay, the bitch knows how to EAT and she’s downright FAT. But what can I say, I’m a sucker for her doggy ways and it’s a dog-eat-treat world. We’re going to throw on our chef hats and give these a try. Maybe throw on the Lifetime channel and eat away together. Great post. Wish I had thought of that petting zoo idea. I wouldve have like to have contained a few of my husband’s family members in there too…


Jordi Miller August 16, 2011 at 4:34 pm

this made me laugh out loud!


Chantal November 11, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Cute comment! It made me chuckle :-)


heather April 29, 2010 at 11:23 am

recently engaged and planning our own wedding for next year — very similar to your plans but in Autumn! so delightful.




Adrianna April 29, 2010 at 11:33 am

Stacia–dooooo it!

Heather–a farm wedding in Autumn is going to be beautiful!


Catherine April 29, 2010 at 3:45 pm

There’s something about You making these treats that just seems so perfect. For those of you who don’t know Adrianna, she’s quite the character when you get her around a dog. Her love for them makes this blog all too appropriate.

Since I currently only have my kitty nosey, I might have to make them for my boyfriend’s dog. — Who knows — Would be a great Christmas Gift for people with doggies. Don’t have to worry that that gift box of Mixed Popcorn will go stale — A dog Treat is ALWAYS enjoyed! Thanks for the tip!!!


Michelle April 29, 2010 at 5:20 pm

So fun. I promised my kids that we’d make our new puppy some ice cream, but they’d love this too. Thanks for the recipe.


Adrianna April 30, 2010 at 11:17 am

Michelle–Puppy ice cream?! What?! That sounds crazy…and amazing!


Brendan April 30, 2010 at 11:48 am

This makes me want to get a dog real soon! Can I put some on layaway until that happens?


Adrianna April 30, 2010 at 4:10 pm



Katrina May 2, 2010 at 4:48 am

My puppy would just LOVE these!

Dog Treat Recipes with Michelle May 10, 2010 at 7:58 am

I really like that you used coconut oil. It’s such a healthy alternative, and it should help keep your dog’s coat nice and shiny! :) Any time I make homemade dog treats with peanut butter, I find it helpful to slightly warm it first. It just seems to come together easier for me. Thanks so much for sharing the wonderful recipe! :)


squirrel October 20, 2010 at 6:04 am

Hi there, I made your treats and theyare very good! Well, that’s wha thte dog said. I was wondering if I could use your photo to go with the treats I made? Thanks so much, S


Lala August 14, 2011 at 4:44 am

Made this a several times already. My baby dog would like to say “thank you.” This is his favorite treat. Sometimes I add shredded cheddar cheese.


Abby August 24, 2011 at 1:26 am

The cheese is not healthy for a dog it can cause a blockage in there intestate. I had no idea till the vet told me not to give my dog cheese. .


aussiebushgirl January 7, 2016 at 7:58 pm

That’s ridiculous. Change your Vet!


sex shop September 14, 2011 at 12:46 pm

If I say that this blog is a mine of information, I definitely mean it.


Erica September 27, 2011 at 2:10 pm

haha @ the petting zoo… I agree with you on the goats! Pigs and mini horses are MUCH cuter!


Amber October 26, 2011 at 6:34 pm

I just want to say I just found your site and am IN LOVE! this is such a wonderful site Ive been really trying to find a good cooking blog and have had no luck! I love baking and cooking and have even tried making my own dog treats and your blog has it all! Thank you!


Adrianna October 26, 2011 at 6:45 pm

Hi Amber! So glad you found me. YAY!


austin December 9, 2011 at 6:31 pm

I made these treats this morning as gifts for our staff Christmas party. My three-month-old Cocker Spaniel was the official taster, and he loves them! Thank you so much for the recipe!


girlinpark December 11, 2011 at 10:12 pm

Just made these and my three dogs LOVE their new treats! I added one mashed banana and only used 3/4 c broth. I won’t ever be able to give them a Milkbone again 😉


Caroline December 14, 2011 at 12:04 am

How many 5 inch treats does this make?


araminta December 25, 2011 at 8:33 pm

Caroline…I just used a 2.5 inch square cutter and all the dough yielded exactly 50 pup cookies.


T January 8, 2012 at 7:18 pm

I gotta make these for my pup some time, he would love them! He loves it when we bake together, especially if we use peanut butter!!

I like the idea of using bananas, too. Maybe we will try it both ways! Thanks for the recipe~


Adrianna January 8, 2012 at 7:43 pm

I love that you two bake together. I need a dog for this specific purpose alone!


Faye Myers January 16, 2012 at 2:53 pm

I just made these for our mixed lab, Maggie, and she loved them. She survived the tornado here in Birmingham on April 27th and we adopted her. We do like to spoil her. What texture are they supposed to be? Mine are not crunchy, they are a little chewy.


Adrianna January 17, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Hmm…mine were crunchy. Not like chip-crunchy, though. YAY! So glad Maggie liked ’em.


Dser January 18, 2012 at 11:27 pm

i tried this but with veggies and chicken meat and broth.
But when i check in the over. They look like mini cakes. Kinda like brownies.

I used 1 cup of Oatmeal Pancake
1 cup of Wheat Flour
1of rice flour
carrots, spinach, cucumber, tomatoes, and other
Chicken, Liver, chicken broth, turkey broth


Patty January 22, 2012 at 9:37 am

These treats sound great but my dog can’t have wheat products as she has a weak bladder and has incontinence when she eats any wheat. Any suggestions.


Adrianna January 22, 2012 at 9:55 am

I’d replace the wheat flour with oat flour. You can make your own, or buy it from a grocery store.


Jamae February 28, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Made these treats and my dog loves them :) Just out of curiosity do you know about how long these are good for at room temp? I know I can freeze some but just wondering! Thanks for the recipe!


Adrianna February 28, 2012 at 6:45 pm

I kept mine for a couple weeks. They probably went a little stale, but I mean…I don’t think my dog noticed. :)


Coleman March 19, 2012 at 11:31 am

Awesome post ! Thank you for, writing on this blog page dude! I shall message you again. I didnt know that!


sareserve March 27, 2012 at 9:12 pm

Homemade Dog Treats I was suggested this website by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem. You are amazing! Thanks! your article about Homemade Dog TreatsBest Regards Veronica


Sara April 8, 2012 at 1:38 pm

I have made these treats for my dog and I can say that there is no treats that I can buy that he loves better!! It’s like he’s getting a cookie every time we give him one! He absolutely loves them!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I have shared this recipe over the last few weeks to so many friends and family members. I continue to get calls asking for this recipe because they’ve heard I found a recipe for homemade recipe so thank you from all of us!!


Adrianna April 8, 2012 at 8:32 pm

Hahaha! This is sooo awesome.


Sarah June 23, 2012 at 7:09 pm

This is a great recipe! My dog loved them and they were super easy to make! I didn’t bother to roll and cut them out; instead I just rolled them into balls and flattened them on the cookie sheet.


Julie July 26, 2012 at 6:07 am

I love your blog! But hey, goats are actually very cool. My son says he’ll buy me a petting zoo when he’s a super star. You can have your wedding at my zoo any time.
I can’t wait to make these for my dog and cousin-dogs. Thanks.


Adrianna July 26, 2012 at 11:33 am

DEAL! xo


KRISTEN August 28, 2012 at 11:42 am



Adrianna August 28, 2012 at 11:53 pm

Water should work just fine. I don’t have any recipes for dry dog food, unfortunately.


Sharon September 12, 2012 at 10:52 pm

One of my four-legged boys has severe food allergies, so no chicken anything for him. I substitute vegetable broth in recipes for him. I also keep the white flour to a minimum and used 1/2 cup each of white and oat flour. Both boys loved the cookies! Thank you for sharing the recipe!


Rhonna November 9, 2012 at 2:13 pm

I make a Sweet Potato and Apple recipe for my GSD off of Whole Foods website that is excellent–I substitute with canned pumpkin regularly. I am looking forward to trying these. A suggestion… I only keep a couple handful of treats in a jar at a time and put the rest in a ziplock bag in the freezer so I don’t have to worry about spoilage due to the lack of preservatives. Just pull a couple handfuls out every week, so they are always fresh.


Sabrina December 8, 2012 at 7:07 pm

I just made these tonight and the consistency of them were a little soft even after they’ve been cooled, are they supposed to be hard like milk bones? I might put them back in the oven and see what happens…


Adrianna December 9, 2012 at 10:23 am

They’re not super super hard but should be pretty firm. I’d put them in the oven and bake ’em for an extra 15 minutes. :)


makayla December 23, 2012 at 9:52 am

these dog treats are amazing my dog loves them where did you get that idea


Nancy February 4, 2013 at 1:12 pm

My “little girls” first birthday was this weekend. We have a Golden named Maggie. My daughter and I decided to make treats for her to “celebrate”. This recipe looked great and got awesome doggie reviews. I cut the recipe in half (you mentioned 50) I figured-for now-lets try 25-less to throw away if I blew it!! They were so easy to make and roll. I rolled them a bit thin-will make them much thicker next time (yup-next time!) Now, for Maggie’s review…she loved them…though at first I did worry. She took the treat with a look in her eye of is this ok?? Even took her a minute to eat it (trust me-at 65 lbs. it should have taken just a few seconds!) I figured out her hesitation! We don’t give her food or treats from the kitchen counter (no trying to steal food or beg while I’m cooking!) I had cooled the treats there and couldn’t wait to give her one! She must have thought I was setting her up for trouble! Once she saw that it was ok she came back for more!!! Huge winner with Maggie! Thanks for sharing the recipe…

Quality content is the secret to interest the people to pay a quick visit the site, that’s what this web page is providing.


amy May 25, 2013 at 2:00 pm

made them and they are wonderfulllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll. thanks for the recipe


Cynthia Bunde May 27, 2013 at 6:23 pm

Thank you for posting this recipe! My little girl (10 years old) needed a recipe – they are planning to make dog treats to sell for her 4H group fundraiser. She found this and whipped out a batch on her own tonight. They are a hit with our border collie/golden retriever girl!


Adrianna Adarme May 27, 2013 at 9:51 pm

Oh yay! I love this. So glad they were easy to make/your doggie loved them. :)


Amanda June 3, 2013 at 9:30 am

HI! I have a quick question for you. Can you use any other flour instead of the whole wheat? This is like, the only recipe that I’ve found without crazy stuff like wheat germ and stuff like that. Can’t wait to give it a try!


Adrianna Adarme June 3, 2013 at 9:35 am

You can substitute and use all-purpose if you like. Or you can use a grain-free flour like garbanzo or quinoa flour.


Sara Fleetwood June 25, 2013 at 12:15 pm

Just made these for my puppy Addie, they were so fun to make and she loves them!! Thank you for sharing!


Suzanne July 17, 2013 at 7:39 pm

Ok so I just made these treats for my little boy…lol and he was fallowing me around the house like CRAZYY!!… and even after I was done cooking, he waited in the kitchen as if he was waiting for more… its pretty safe to say he LOVEDDDDDD these cookies! lol
Wonderful blog!! Thank you for this easy recipe! 😀


Lori August 19, 2013 at 12:31 pm

I make these over cheesy treats for my dogs,they of course love them.
My friend Nancy cheats as in she keeps a jar of peanut butter handy that she dips their milkbones into…Hmmm


Margie October 29, 2013 at 8:56 pm

What a great easy recipe thank you for sharing. After setting them on the cooling rack husband came in and ate one while my back was turned thinking it was an oatmeal cookie 😀


Adrianna Adarme October 29, 2013 at 9:22 pm

Ha! I love that. I actually tried this cookie a long time ago–not half bad! :)


Kate November 2, 2013 at 5:34 pm

How long would these last?


Kate November 2, 2013 at 5:35 pm

I should have said…stored..I’m sure with my pups they would be gone in a heatbeat!


Adrianna Adarme November 3, 2013 at 7:46 am

They should last up to 2 weeks!


homemade dog treats November 2, 2013 at 9:30 pm

I loved the picture you have on your website. This is a great way to keep people on your site, I will be the first to say that! The treats look delicious and Chuck looks cute as all heck.

Thanks for the fast and simple homemade dog treats recipe. Good work and keep it up!


DannB November 30, 2013 at 10:41 pm

Have tried once and was failed though,haha. Anyway, probably at that time I am not serious in doing so which is why it failed, or probably I haven’t really followed the direction. Well, thank to some pet treats baker because I can order any time without any worry. Thank you also for sharing this.

Deborah January 10, 2014 at 8:41 am

Great, simple recipe. Can I substitute almond butter for peanut butter?


Cathy January 18, 2014 at 8:59 pm

This sounds like one of the better recipes that I’ve found. I know my crew of 2 Cavaliers and 1 Pembroke Welsh Corgi will want me to bake it for them. I will add just a touch of local honey for them. Thank you for sharing!!!


Chelsea January 20, 2014 at 1:43 pm

I was a little hesitant to make these at first because my last attempt at another recipe for dog treats failed. I didn’t like them and neither did my pups. I substituted just regular ol’ vegetable oil for the coconut oil because I refuse to pay almost $20.00 for a small bottle of coconut oil from my small town grocery store. They turned out wonderfully! I tried a bite myself lol! Too bland for my taste, but my Bud & MJ absolutely loved them! I’m going to make a double batch today so they last a little longer. Simple recipe, cheap & healthy ingredients, they smell good as they are baking, great texture, fun to make & overall two thumbs up!! Thank you for the great recipes, we will be enjoying it for a long tim


Chris January 31, 2014 at 8:12 pm

My dog Chippy loved this recipe…and so did I! We could eat this everyday!


Vanessa February 8, 2014 at 7:01 pm

I baked these for my dog, but my husband and daughter keep eating them. She wants to take them to school for a snack.


Adrianna Adarme February 9, 2014 at 11:49 am

Hahaha! So funny and cute!


Liv September 8, 2014 at 4:39 pm



Ann February 9, 2014 at 3:18 am

Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!
My puppy loves cookies made ​​on this recipe:
6 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 Tbsp baking soda
1 tbsp ground ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 c applesauce
3/4 c molasses
1/2 c honey
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 egg, beaten

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.Combine all of the ingredients in your mixer with a dough hook. Turn it out onto a floured surface and roll it out to 1/4 inch thick.
Cut it with cookie cutter or simply with a pizza cutter. Place them on cookie sheets and poke each in the center with a fork.
Bake for 8 minutes and turn oven off, keeping oven door closed. Let the treats sit in the oven until hard about 1-2 hours.

Do you need molasses for this recipe?


Adrianna Adarme July 23, 2014 at 9:27 pm

There’s no molasses in this recipe.


Maddie December 27, 2014 at 8:38 pm

It does contain molasses. It says
3/4 c molasses right after 3/4 applesauce.
So do we NEED the molasses???


Adrianna Adarme December 28, 2014 at 1:04 pm

I meant no molasses for the recipe on this page that I posted. I cannot vouch for the recipe a commenter posted.

Kellie October 6, 2014 at 6:38 pm

Hi I was wondering if you could substitute all purpose for the whole wheat flour?


Adrianna Adarme October 7, 2014 at 10:13 am

Sure, that should work!

Excellent blog you have got here.. It’s hard to find high-quality writing like yours these days.
I really appreciate people like you! Take care!!

I was wondering if you would be willing to sell a solo ad?

If so how many subscribers would we be mailing to?

Also do you know your open rate?

And of course how much would you be asking?

Thanks for your time,



Corie March 8, 2014 at 8:21 am

I was wondering what you could use to replace the wheat and chicken in this recipe. My dog is allergic to both but this recipe sounds awesome.


Adrianna Adarme March 8, 2014 at 9:10 am

Hi Corie,

Yes, I actually have this recipe:


Which is grain-free and doesn’t use any chicken broth.


Corie March 10, 2014 at 12:12 pm

Thank you so much! I’m so excited to make these today.


janet December 14, 2014 at 7:01 pm

My dog is allergic to chicken, too. I usually just substitute organic vegetable broth when I see chicken broth in a recipe.


Sarah S. January 2, 2015 at 8:53 am

Cocnut flour


Susan Calise June 2, 2014 at 6:30 am

Hi I have 2 dogs and they are losing there teeth . But they love soft treats is there any thing I can substitute the flour with so it will hold together but maybe make them a little more moist. Also can I leave out the chickean broth and add some thing else like mashed bananas. Please help me make my dogs happy. Thank you Susan Calise


Adrianna Adarme June 2, 2014 at 9:23 am

Hmm…I’m not quite sure. I haven’t tested this recipe in this way. You can feel free to substitute the chicken broth with water. You can also cut down on the baking time tremendously. I’d say bake them in half and remove them when they’re a teeny bit golden brown on the edges but still really soft on the inside. Let them cool completely and they should be a bit softer. Hope this helps!


julienne December 22, 2014 at 8:01 pm

for my dog i put in a blender peanut butter oats strawberries and some cheese the blender then i transfer it to an ice cube tray and freeze it this might feel good on the gums!


deb January 24, 2015 at 6:57 pm

If you bake the whole batch on a cookie sheet and and then use a pizza cutter to cut them, and take them out when just done they will stay fairly soft. My 4 like them soft or crunchy so I do batches of both.


Sandy August 13, 2014 at 10:45 am

Why aren’t mine crunchy? I made them as thin as possible.


Adrianna Adarme August 14, 2014 at 11:11 pm

Hmmm…it’s hard for me to say since I wasn’t in the kitchen with you. But if you can always bake them for longer.


Crystal September 17, 2014 at 2:09 pm

Can you sub peanut butter for soy butter? i am having my classroom make dog biscuits and they cant have peanut butter in the school.


Adrianna Adarme September 21, 2014 at 5:09 pm

Sorry I’m not completely positive. I haven’t tried them with soy butter.


Kelly September 24, 2014 at 4:21 pm

Ha! Ha! I’m with you Vanessa (comment dated February 8th) My husband came home and said “Yum! The house smells good! Oooo cookies! Why are the cut into the shape of a Boxer?” Me ” They are Dog cookies, and I used our Boxer cookie cutter. Try one if you’d like”. He did, and liked them! My poor boxer girls Stella & Sophie just sat and stared at him with sad eyes. :-(
I did stay away from the whole wheat flour…they are just as tasty!


Adrianna Adarme September 24, 2014 at 5:49 pm

Love this story!

Does anyone know how to make dog treat for dog with urinary crystals, that would be safe.Just spent 1600.00 on surgery for blockage


Kathleen December 28, 2014 at 4:51 pm

I started making my own dog treats when my shih tzu got a urinary tract infection. I use a turkey cranberry recipe (all organic ingredients) and a pumpkin peanut butter one as well. I, of course, changed her diet to a urinary care one (she didn’t care for the hills’ Science so my pet store did some investigating and found essentially the same ingredients in a Wellness brand). Really don’t want to go thru that infection again so I’ll do anything to keep her healthy.


Liv October 19, 2014 at 11:51 am

Is this good for hamsters too?


trisha October 20, 2014 at 8:05 am

I was wondering if you have tried freezing or vacum sealing them and if so, what would the freezer life be? I am going to make these for xmas gifts for friends, great recipe thank you!


Adrianna Adarme October 20, 2014 at 9:42 am

Oh I haven’t tried this, if you do, please report back.


Brandi November 9, 2014 at 11:20 am

I am doing the same thing. I am going to store them in foodsaver bags. My friends do that at Christmas with regular cookies.


kirstbag November 22, 2014 at 1:40 am

These look so awesome! We are going to make a whole batch of these and sell them at the local Christmas Fair!! I think they will definitely sell!!! 😀


Tracy December 12, 2014 at 10:27 am

Do you think I could substitute molasses for honey (which has gotten so expensive)? Thanks!


Adrianna Adarme December 12, 2014 at 10:50 am

Hmm…not sure. I’m not even sure if molasses is ok for dogs. Sorry about that!


janet December 14, 2014 at 7:06 pm

Molasses is fine for dogs. In fact, honey is bad for dogs in large quantities. I never use more than 1/4 cup or so for a full recipe of treats.


Christine February 12, 2015 at 8:30 am

These treats didn’t work for me as the dough was way too wet and no matter how much flour or oats I added it didn’t get anywhere near the consistency that I would be able to roll it out!! Very disappointed and waste of time and money to have even tried them!!!!


Adrianna Adarme February 12, 2015 at 8:40 am

Hi Christine, Sorry this recipe gave you trouble. Not sure what happened since many people in the comments have made them with success. Unfortunately since I wasn’t there I can’t tell you what went wrong.


Christine February 12, 2015 at 8:46 am

I did use liquid honey, because that’s all I had, could that be why?


Adrianna Adarme February 12, 2015 at 8:48 am

I used liquid honey, that should’ve been fine. Hmm…is there anything else you changed?


Christine March 10, 2015 at 4:16 pm

No :(

Stephanie February 15, 2015 at 3:40 pm

I’m way to lazy to roll them out. I drop them like you would oatmeal cookies and they always work just fine. Last batch I made, I added a whole bag of carrots I ran through the food processor and my dogs loved them!


Rebecca February 21, 2015 at 12:49 pm

These look great–I’m about to try them now!

Just wondering… do you know what breed your dog, Chuck, is? His face, head shape, and ears loos EXACTLY like my dog’s, and I’ve been trying to play detective and figure out what he might be :)


Adrianna Adarme February 21, 2015 at 10:21 pm

We think he’s a canaan dog! But obviously not sure since he’s a rescue. Take a look at ’em:



Chelsea March 17, 2015 at 6:48 pm

I was wondering about for you measure the coconut oil, do you heat it up and use it as a liquid, or as a solid?

Wondering about how you measure * sorry for typos


Cassandra April 6, 2015 at 3:00 pm

hi yes i was wondering if i could trade out the peanut butter for sweet potatoe?? or could i do both?


Adrianna Adarme April 7, 2015 at 6:38 am

I’m actually not sure. They both have very different consistencies so I’m not sure it would work. Sorry I can’t be more help!

Fantastic recipe – My puppies looked so sad when I ran out of biscuits!

If you’re ever on the lookout for more dog treat recipes, my girlfriend has started a website – http://caninepantry.com – with recipes for all the treats she makes for her little Pomeranians.

Mmmm, coconut oil honey-oat cookies… I mean, dog treats* lol


Adrianna Adarme May 18, 2015 at 2:50 pm

I’ve eaten them before and um they’re not bad! Haha.

Thank you, great article about dog’s treats. I found more about obedience treats specifically here:http://dogsaholic.com/food_treats/best-dog-bones.html

Hi, I was wondering what the shelf life is?


Adrianna Adarme June 30, 2015 at 8:27 pm

These stay good in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a month. Even if they get a little stale, the dogs can’t tell 😉


Lesley August 11, 2015 at 6:57 pm

These look absolutely gorgeous, I’ll be pinning these to my green pets board asap!

You might want to tell your readers to avoid peanut butter that contains xylitol, as it can quickly kill a dog in very small amounts. You can check out my latest post about it if you are interested. Feel free to refer to it, I couldn’t tell you how much I would appreciate that!


Thanks again for a the gorgeous recipe!

Do you guys think I can substitute the all purpose flour for maybe some type of nut flour just to add a little more nutrients to the treat??


Lynn May 18, 2016 at 10:45 pm

Thank you so much for wonderful recipe! My 3 1/2 year old carkie/yorkie/? Loves these treats over anything else. At least I know what’s going in them, nice and healthy! I am going to change up some of the ingredients so she does not get bored with them. Even her trainer is impressed with them, her Teacup chihuahua is a very picky eater and dances for them when we show up for training.


Adrianna Adarme May 18, 2016 at 10:47 pm

hahah this is awesome. love that the picky teacup chihuahua likes them. i feel like i can imagine the entire scene. thanks for the lovely feedback. xoxo

So just made these for my dogs birthday and they are the most enjoyable thing I’ve baked in a while and I am an avid baker. These will be going with him to doggie daycare on Thursday but he tested each batch and loved them all the same.

For people who have problems with the the dough being sticky it might be the peanut butter! But if your dough does end up sticky just generously dust with flour and flatten at the same time, don’t try rolling it without the flour on both sides or it will probably be a frustrating mess.

I made half into 5 inch bones and they came out a bit soft, so I turned the oven down to 250 and cooked for an extra 20 minutes which make them more crunchy and cooked through.

Thank you for the great recipe, my dog really appreciates it!

My friend and I are starting a dog treat business and we’re looking at recipes… This one looks great! We’ll have to try it!!


McKenna May 26, 2016 at 12:35 pm

My friend and I are starting a new dog treat business and these treats look delicious! With some of our personal touches we might be able to try it!!

My granddaughter made some treats for her new Shepard mix they rescued from the local shelter. Dog loved them, but we stored some in a baggy and the fot moldy. Did we not bake them long enough or what? :-(


Adrianna Adarme June 5, 2016 at 6:17 pm

yeah maybe they weren’t baked enough? next time i would store them in the fridge.


Greta Lamb July 15, 2016 at 10:52 am

Any recipes for doggy chews?


Adrianna Adarme July 16, 2016 at 9:08 am

oh i don’t have one…yet maybe i should make one now!


Kathy September 22, 2016 at 7:08 am

Hi, Adrianna, I saw your post while looking for dog treat recipes. Thank you for posting, but I think you should be aware that the ASPCA has coconut oil on its list of poisonous foods that are NOT healthy for dogs. Here is the link:



Pat November 11, 2016 at 12:52 pm

Thats crazy!! I use coconut oil all the time in my dog treats. I also give them garlic pills. That website is BS if ya ask me.


Annmarie Hall October 15, 2016 at 4:25 am

Hi my dog has allergies and can only eat lamb so I thought I would make some lambs liver treats for him but how do I preserve them as there are way to many for him to eat within a week? Thanks Annmarie


Pat November 11, 2016 at 1:00 pm

Can you please tell me the shelf life for these? Thanks so much.


Adrianna Adarme November 13, 2016 at 9:49 am

They should be good for about a month!


Joseph M November 27, 2016 at 4:22 pm

I was wondering if anyone had any idea of a shelf life for these treats? And perhaps recommended storage.


Joseph M November 27, 2016 at 4:27 pm

Ha! I missed this same question.

How are these recommended to be stored? In an air tight container? In the fridge? Thank you!!


Adrianna Adarme November 27, 2016 at 6:29 pm

I would recommend keeping them in an airtight container on your kitchen counter. They should be good for 2 to 3 weeks. :)
