- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 20 minutes
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: about 48 treats 1x
- Category: Biscuit Treats
- Method: Baked
- Cuisine: Dog Treats
- 2.5 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup water
- 2 tbsp. raw honey
- 1 egg
If your dog has allergies, you can substitute rice flour, coconut flour or any other type of flour that is suitable for your dog. You can also substitute 1/2 cup of applesauce for the egg if needed.
Preheat your oven to 350˚ F.
Combine the flour, baking powder and egg in a small mixing bowl. Add the peanut butter, water and honey. I heat the peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften it and make it easier to mix.
You can roll the dough out onto a floured surface and use cookie cutters to make the individual biscuits. I take the easy road and place spoonfuls of the dough on a well-greased cookie sheet. Then I just squish them down with a fork.
Bake the peanut butter dog biscuit treats for about 20 minutes. They will be firm and golden brown when finished.
