Little Lily’s Crunchy Peanut Puppy Treats

This is a super easy to make DIY dog treat recipe that Lily our Silky Terrier loves.

We make a batch of peanut butter treats about once a month. It only takes a few minutes to stir in the four basic ingredients. Most of us have these ingredients on hand any given day. So there is no running all over town, looking for these weird food items your dog can’t taste anyway.

There are only 4 ingredients needed to make our ‘Crunchy Peanut Puppy Treats‘.

Crunchy peanut puppy treats


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cups of Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the flour and baking power in one bowl and the peanut butter and milk in another bowl. Blend both mixtures together.

I started out using a mixing spoon, but ended up using my hands to knead the dough, it’s much easier.

Add a little bit of flour to your work area.

Roll out the dough, about 1/4 inch thick. Use your favorite cookie cutters, I used a heart and tree shape, and cut out the treats.

Place them on a cookie sheet and place in the oven.
