Crunchy Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

If your dog loves crunchy dog biscuits, you should try this recipe! Not only are they easy to make, but they are made using 4 ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Easy? Check. No weird ingredients? Check. Dog approved? Oh yeah!


2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup milk


1. Preheat your oven to 375 and lightly grease a baking sheet (or two).
2. Add the flour and baking powder to a mixing bowl and combine them first, then add the milk and peanut butter. Mix until a dough forms.
3. Roll out the dough until it’s about a 1/4 inch thick, then cut into shapes using a cookie cutter.
4. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.


  • If you don’t have any cookie cutters on hand, the dough can be cut into bite-sized squares using a pizza cutter.
  • If you’d like for the finished dog biscuits to be a tad crispier, turn off your oven after 20 minutes and let biscuits cool in there overnight. That will give them a little extra crunch.

    HI Monique – do you know if I can use all purpose flour instead of whole wheat flour for your recipe?
    Thank you.

  5. Monique says:

    @Ronny – Absolutely! Feel free to substitute all-purpose flour in any of the recipes that call for wheat.

    Can we make these and freeze them for later?

  8. Melissa says:

    These are a lifesaver. Santa forgot the doggy treats, even after a reminder, and my daughter is looking forward to seeing what our dog Lulu gets in her stocking this year! Santa is definately making these tonight! (Christmas Eve!!) :)

    Ok, I am far from being a master baker. I don’t really do a lot of baking, but I would like to start. But, I have a question. What is the difference between baking powder and baking soda? And can I use baking soda in this recipe instead of the baking powder?


  10. Leana says:

    Could I substitute the whole wheat flower and baking powder with self rising flour?

    • Monique says:

      Leana, that’s a good question. I’ve never tried it myself, but I think it will work just fine.

      If you give it a go, please let me know how it turns out!

    I have made these treats. I like to use 1% milk instead of whole. My pup loves them. also when I cut them, I use a pizza cutter and I don’t cut in straight squares. some are big triangles, and some are bite size squares. That way he never knows how much of a treat he is getting and the shapes are just fun for me to do lol.

  12. Kathy says:

    Great recipe! My Jack Russell LOVES them. Instead of rolling out the dough, I pinched small amounts and rolled them into little balls and then used a fork to criss cross and flatten them (just like people peanut butter cookies!) Thanks for posting these recipes, so much better than trying to go out and buy treats.

  13. Julzy says:

    Thank you for this great recipe! I used skim milk, used all-purpose flour instead of the whole wheat flour and self-rising flour instead of the baking powder. My puppy loves them – he is currently sniffing around for more!

    • Monique says:

      @Gina, Kathy & Julzy – Don’t you just love how forgiving dog treat recipes are?! And they’re always sooo appreciated. I absolutely love baking for dogs!

  14. Molly says:

    Can you substitute the chunky peanut butter for smooth peanut butter?

  15. Chelsea says:

    How long do these treats keep for? I’m going to be baking pup-treats for a bake sale for the local pound an I want to make sure I find a long lasting recipe. I LOVE this website by the way! :) Thank you!
