Recipe: Easy DIY Dog Treats

Easy DIY Dog Treats

Choosing the best ingredients is obviously the most important part of making homemade dog treats. You should buy the best ingredients that you can afford. The higher the quality of ingredients, the healthier the treats will be for your dog.


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour


Preheat your oven to 375˚F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter and milk. I use a whisk to mix them together until it’s smooth and creamy. In a separate bowl, combine the baking powder and flour.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture. Fold them together until they’re thoroughly combined. I roll the dough out to about 1/4″ thick and use cookie cutters to cut small treats.

You could also drop spoonfuls of the dough onto a well greased baking sheet and press the cookies down with a fork. One of the easiest ways to make treats with this dough is by putting spoonfuls into a well-greased mini muffin tray.

No matter what shape you make them, bake the treats for about 20 minutes or until they’re browned and begin to crack on the top. Once they have cooled completely, you can serve them to your dog sparingly.
