Easy Holiday Dog Cookie Recipe

19 Dec

easy dog cookiesThe perfect present for your furry friends!

This is the recipe I use to make our treats at home. The result is a very hard, crunchy cookie – just the way our guys like ’em.

The directions suggest you leave the cookies to cool overnight in the oven, but if your canine companions simply can not wait that long – it’s ok to serve after cooling on a wire rack (they just will not get as crunchy).


I’ve found that these cookies stay good for about 1-2 weeks in an airtight jar. They also freeze well for up to a year.
Easy Dog Cookie Recipe
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
1 1/4 c. hot (not boiling) water

Other Needs:
rolling pin
cookie cutter(s)
2 standard size baking sheets
large bowl

How To Make The Easiest Dog Cookies Around:

  1. In large bowl, mix whole wheat flour and rolled oats until combined.
  2. Place 1/2 c. of peanut butter in bowl.
  3. Pour hot water over mixture, and combine with spoon until cool enough to mix with hands.
  4. Knead dough in bowl with hands until ingredients are combined and you are able to make large ball of dough. Add extra flour, if needed, until dough is not sticky.
  5. Separate the dough in two.
  6. Roll out dough on floured surface to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut out cookies; place on baking sheets.
  7. Place baking sheets in oven heated to 350 F and bake for 40 minutes.
  8. After cookies are baked, leave in oven overnight (or at least 8-10 hours) to dry and harden.

      Glad to hear they were a hit with Zoe!
