Bake these Homemade Dog Treats for your doggie best friend. These dog treats are filled with peanut butter, chicken broth, honey and oats. If you’re looking for a grain-free option, make these Grain-Free Pumpkin Dog Treats.

Remember when I posted my sweet “Meet Amelia“. She’s now a grown up dog that is feisty, full of attitude but SO sweet. She deserves a dog treat. I’ve made her everything from a Grain-Free Dog Cake, a regular Dog Birthday Cake and of course, these Homemade Dog Treats.

Ingredients You’ll Need for Homemade Dog Treats

  1. Peanut Butter. Is there anything else dogs love more? Definitely not.
  2. All-purpose flour. I use a mix of all-purpose flour and whole wheat. You can use all AP flour or all whole wheat. Both will work.
  3. Oats. This adds some good texture. And I love oatmeal in cookies (see my: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies) so I figured she’d love them too.
  4. Honey. This adds some good flavor to these dog treats.
  5. Chicken stock. You can use a homemade chicken stock or store-bought broth or stock.

For the rest of the ingredients, please see the recipe index card below!

How to Make Homemade Dog Treats

  1. Mix together the peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth. We want this to be smooth and cohesive.
  2. Pour in the flours. Add in the flours and oats. Mix it until it comes to be a dough.
  3. Flour your work surface. Add the dough to the counter and roll it out until it reaches a 1/4-inch thick.
  4. Stamp out the cookies. And then transfer them to your prepared baking sheet.
  5. Re-roll the scraps. And stamp out more cookies.
  6. Bake the cookies. Let them cool on a cooling rack.

Recipe Tip

  • Peanut Butter. Feel free to add a creamy almond butter instead of peanut butter.
  • How to Freeze Cookie Dough. Freeze this cookie dough by placing the baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes. At the 30 minute-mark, transfer the cookies to a freezer-safe bag and keep in the freezer for up to 6 months. Bake them from frozen.  

Recipe FAQs

Can I use another flour besides all-purpose and whole wheat?

Yes, you can use a gluten-free all-purpose flour. If you want to make a grain-free option, check out my Grain-Free Pumpkin Dog Treats.

How long will these dog treats last?

They should last up to two weeks when stored in an airtight container.

  1. Magnificent beat ! I would like to apprentice while you amend your website, how could i subscribe for a blog web site? The account helped me a acceptable deal. I had been a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright clear idea

  2. Do these need to be stored in the refrigerator? I’m looking for a recipe that can be left on the counter please.

  3. Made these about two weeks ago. They turned out good and very easy. We don’t have a dog so had to sample them ourselves. I was actually very impressed by how they tasted as was my husband. My father had asked me to make treats for his fur monsters, so this was an experiment and first foray into dog biscuits. I also sent out sampler packs to some local friends as well. All good reports on the doggie front too. I will definitely be making more of these to keep sending out to friends and family.

    I usually like dogs more anyway. 🙂

  4. Hello! I will make these for my dog! He’s going to love them! But my sister asking if she can make for her cat? Are they good for cats too? Thanks!

  5. Please be sure to always use peanut butter which doesn’t include Xylitol. THis is toxic to dogs, and is found in some brands

  6. Have to say, sounds good for HUMANS too. I have a medical foster, that is on reduced calorie diet, for she has cancer and needs to lose weight so that mammory gland surgery can be done. Looking for recipes that I can make for her, so that she doesn’t feel left out when others get their treats. Currently on <700 calories a day. She is a Sweetheart and we're trying to give her every chance of full life. Any recipes or suggestions to substitute for ingredients in recipes would be appreciated. (She is low active category, American Bulldog).

  7. Homemade dog treats have the different taste as compared to food available in the market moreover you can add some customize dishes in it as choosing the recipe for your dog is not so hard you can simply take the idea from the internet as it is very helpful in taking the ideas and all which you want to be. You can get all accessories and dog supplies from Australian shop.
