4 Easy Homemade Dog Treats, Peanut Butter Flavour

Homemade Dog Treats

To be used as occasional treats, not part of your dogs nutritional daily requirement. 

This is just like us having a snack between meals.  Try not to overdo it! 

The following homemade organic peanut butter dog treat recipes are all natural healthy treats that are chemical and preservative free.

I use all natural organic unsweetened peanut butter from the health food store.


  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 Tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3TBSP peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/cup oatmeal

Whisk dry ingredients into wet, and form into ball of dough.

Roll out about 1/2 inch thick piece and cut into desired shapes with cookie cutter if you want.


I just cut into bite size squares.

Bake on ungreased, non stick baking sheet at 400 degress F., for about 20 minutes.  Shut oven off, leaving cookies in cooling oven until crispy. Store in airtight container.

I break these into small pieces and use them as training treats. I carry them my pocket and my girls always listen to me because they love the smell and taste of peanut butter.

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 TBSP peanut butter
  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Mix all 3 ingredients together until well blended and spread dough evenly on a cookie sheet. (I spray a scant amount of calorie free non stick spam or other brand on the cookie sheet first.)

Cut the dough into squares, triangles or whatever shape you prefer – making about 24 treats.

Bake for 30 minutes until crispy.

Keep for a week or two in a tupperware container, if they last that long. When I use them as training treats I break them into smaller nibble size portions, after baking.


Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes (until firm)

Molasses is a healthy sweetener that has a variety of trace minerals, including manganese, which is good for your dog.

Don't forget this not a meal or meal replacement, and should not be used to fill you pooch up with too many a day.

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 4 TBSP. blackstrap molasses
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 TBSP vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

Mix  the molasses, peanut butter, water and oil until blended.

Combine the oats and flour in a separate bowl, then slowly add to the wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly (I use my blender and pulse until it forms a ball around the side of the bowl.), but this can easily be done with a hand mixer, or even by hand.

Drop approximately 36 teaspoon sized portions onto a baking sheet. I flatten them with the bottom of a glass, and bake as stated above.

These are sturdy and will keep in an airtight container for about 2 weeks.



  • 1 lb beef liver (cooked and pureed)
  • 3 tbsp. peanut butter
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup cooked barley (measure after cooking)

Mix pureed liver and peanut butter together. I just put them together and whiz until combined and the consistency of toothpaste.

Mix the flour and barley together and then add this to the paste mixture and combine well.
Bake at 350 degrees in a 9 x 9 brownie pan for 20 minutes.

Cut into small bite size pieces after cooling and store in the fridge for no more than one week.

Homemade Organic Dog Treat Recipe


  1. With respect to dogs, there is a huge difference between WHOLE wheat and basic wheat. But since the trend is to go grain-free I guess it all boils down to your specific breed(s).

  2. Whole wheat flour is not dangerous to use in cooking our dog’s treats.

    WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR (used as a low cost fibre source in commercial dog food) is the leading cause of dog allergies. Absolutely useless with no nutritional value whatsoever.

    Also Wheat used in commercial dog food are FOOD FRAGMENTS (filler/fibre source/carbohydrate source). Low cost by-products and left overs from another food manufacturing process. Examples include WHEAT BRAN and BREWER’S RICE (a waste product of the alcohol industry).

    Imagine a repetitive daily feeding of this type of product over years. It is not a good thing.

    (Think about having one meal to eat daily for you and your family, such as hotdogs for example. The occasional hotdog, which is filled with harmful nitrates, fillers and chemicals is not going to harm us. Eating hotdogs daily for your whole life, now that is when the danger of illness begins.)

    Using whole wheat flour to bake your own dog treats is not going to cause allergies.


  3. Recipes look great but I’m confused that everyone says whole wheat flour
    is horrible for dogs but yet when looking for wholesome homemade recipies
    whole wheat is listed. Can someone clarify this ingredient for me?

  4. i have heard that oatmeal and other grains are not good for my lab. can i use rice or something else as a binder? also i’ve heard that white potatoes are hard for them to digest. i also thought that dry food helped with the maintenance of their teeth. Doesn’t cooking fresh veggies destroy the nutrients? thanx

  5. Thank you for all of the helpful information on your site. I have 2 Shar Peis with skin issues, and I have taken them completely off commercial dog food. I’m cooking all their food now, and I found your information to be very useful! Thank you!
