DIY – Homemade Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Dog Cookie Recipe

September 12, 2014 3 min read

Anyone who knows me knows how obsessed I am with my pups! Please meet Jack (German Sheppard/Pit Bull Mix) and Snoopy (Full Blue Nose American Pit Bull)! Also, for anyone who knows me, knows how cheap I am! Lol Now, not all store bought dog treats are bad, but I just have a general rule of thumb – if it’s not all natural, I just won’t give it to my pups. Typical Store bought dog treats, such as the imitation bacon treats or similar treats are extremely high in calories. You wouldn’t give your kid cookies every day after every meal, so why would you give your pets them? If you choose to give them to your pups, it should just be very rarely.  Some dogs have allergies to these types so you have to watch for skin and coat allergies. On top of skin allergies, they are horrible for your dog’s teeth! Either way, I choose to bake my own puppy cookies because of all those undesirable additives, including preservatives. Other benefits for baking your own dog treats: -          You determine the quality of the ingredients you are using -          The recipe could be altered for any dietary restriction or allergies your pups might have -          It is easy -          It’s quick to mix up a batch that could last for a few weeks – while you’re doing your own meal prep, go ahead and prep for the furry babies in the house as well -          It is inexpensive. Most recipes cost a fraction to make as opposed to store bought – and chances are you already have the ingredients laying around the house. Try out this quick easy recipe for your DIY Homemade Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Dog Cookie! Your pups will LOVE it! Ingredients: -          2 cups whole wheat flour (add in extra flour if needed, if the dough is too sticky) -          1 cup rolled oats -          1/3 cup peanut butter (I use crunchy because well, my pups are picky and that’s what they like haha) -          1 ¼ cup hot water Directions: -          Preheat oven to 350 -          Mix dry ingredients together first -          Mix in the peanut butter and add the hot water. -          Knead the dough -          Roll out the dough into a ¼” thickness and cut into shapes with your favorite cookie cutter -          Optional: Egg Wash
  • Make an egg wash and brush onto the cookies before baking. This gives the cookies a nice sheen
-          Place in over and bake for 40 minutes -          Turn off the oven and allow the cookies to cool in oven overnight – this will make them nice and hard just how dogs like them! One thing you have to remember is these will not last very long! Since they are natural and not made with all the Preservatives like store bought treats that are meant to last forever, make sure you are checking them every few days to see if they turn. Mine usually last about a week and a half to two weeks. These are also great for presents around the holidays – hence the ginger bread cookie cut out.  Place them in a small mason jar, tie a ribbon around them with a gift tag and easy and great gift for all your dog lover friends! Comment below and let me know how your pups liked them!
