Easy to make peanut butter puppy treats.

I love making heart shaped dog treats that Lily our Silky Terrier loves. We bake a batch of these super easy to make peanut butter puppy treats about once a month. Of course, you could double the recipe below and make larger treats for your bigger dogs.

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 all these weird food items your dog can’t taste anyway.

Ingredients For Crunchy Peanut Puppy Treats

Ingredients for Dog 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 Christmas cookie cutters, I used a heart and tree shape, and cut out the dog treats. For larger dogs you might want to find larger cut outs or use a small glass for round cookies.

Place the peanut puppy treats on a cookie sheet and put in the oven. Bake until golden brown.

Flip the peanut butter treats over and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until golden brown. Little Lily’s Crunchy Peanut Puppy Treats burn easily so don’t walk away while baking!

  1. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this to a friend who had been doing a little research on this.
    And he actually bought me lunch because I discovered it for him, lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending some time to talk about this subject here on your web site.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing our puppy treat recipe with your friend. I’m sure its going to be a big hit! All the dogs I’ve made these Peanut Puppy Treats for loved them, from Zack the German Shepherds to Choochie, Beanie and of course little Lily.

  2. 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!

    1. 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.

  3. 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.

    1. 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.

    1. I JUST made these treats for my babies: Saint my Min Pin/Lab and Dutchess my Yorkie and they LOVED it! I even packed some up for my nbr’s little dog! It was SUPER easy to make and used up the crunchy pb I bought by mistake! Will DEF make these again…thanks for sharing!
      Sincerely, Cherrelle!

  4. My elderly dog with medical problems who was refusing to eat any commercial dog food on his own just gobbles this up!! We’ve gone from hand/force feeding to cleaning the bowl and looking for more. Thanks!
