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.

  • After exploring a few of the articles on your web page, I seriously like your technique of writing a blog.
    I book marked it to my bookmark webpage list and will be checking back in the
    near future. Please visit my website as well and let me know what you think.

    • I visited your site but I was unable to leave a comment because it’s way too difficult to operate. That said, the rest of the site looks good and it’s nice to see variations on the types of dog food recipes that you show how to make.

  • trying them now. I hope they are crunchy. i am not a chef by any means. yhank you

  • These are so easy, and my shih tzu loves them! I just used a pizza cutter and cut them into small squares, a little smaller than wheat thin size. Thanks for this recipe!

    • Hi Katie, You are very welcome.

      Using a pizza cutter or just rolling the dough into little lumps, is a great idea to save time. The treats will taste equally delicious to your pup no matter what shape they’re in.
