Peanut Butter Dog Biscuit
Recipe with Oatmeal

This peanut butter dog biscuit recipe is what you're looking for if you want easy dog treat recipes. With only four ingredients, one of which is water, you're likely to have all of the ingredients on hand in your pantry.


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (you can use another type of flour if your dog is sensitive to wheat)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter, chunky or smooth (I used smooth this time)
  • 1 1/4 cups hot water

Additional flour for rolling


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F
  2. Mix dry ingredients together.

    Note - This recipe doesn't call for it, but I put an egg wash (one egg whisked with a fork and then brushed on with a pastry brush) on the treats before I baked them. It gives them a nice sheen once they're baked. Here's how they look before baking.

  9. Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet for 40 minutes. Turn off the oven and let them cool overnight.

If you and your dog can't wait that long, cool them completely on a wire rack before serving.

Instead of cutting out more shapes with the left over peanut butter and oatmeal dough, I rolled it into balls. Then I made a cross hatch fork mark on the dog cookies. This is the same way you would do for human peanut butter cookies.

After: The cookies get very hard, just the way dogs like them!

Storing: This peanut butter dog biscuit recipe makes biscuits that will last in a sealed air tight container at room temperature for one week. You can store them in the refrigerator for 3 weeks and in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Tips & Techniques

  • Sticky Dough - The dough for these dog treats can be sticky to work with. If your dough is very sticky you will need to do one, or both, of the following steps. First, continue kneading the dough as this will help it to become less sticky. Second, add more flour to the dough and continue to knead.
