Tuesdays At The Table - Oatmeal Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Welcome to Spring!  HURRAY!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  This week, TATT is going to the dogs.  Like all dogs, my pups enjoy a good treat.  However, the boxes don't display the fat & calories the way I'd like them to.  One of my Cocker Spaniels - Peach Blossom passed away a few years ago after living with Cushing's Disease.  I learned from her the value of watching my herd's waistline.

Lovely Yellow Ribbons

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons wheat germ (sometimes I use flax seed)
1 tablespoon of honey
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup organic peanut butter (my pups like chunky)
1 1/4 cups hot water

Combine the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  Add the peanut butter, honey and water.  You may need to add more hot water if the dough is really sticky.  Knead the dough well.  Roll out onto a floured surface and roll out to 1/4 inch thickness.  Use cookie cutters (I use pawprints) to cut the dough into shapes.  Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes (depending on size of cookie cutter used).  Turn off oven and let the treats dry out overnight.  Pack into airtight container.

What's cooking in your kitchen?


  1. Oh my! What fun! My dog would love these! I think I'll just have to give them a shot!
    Thanks for hosting!

  2. I have two recipes for dog biscuits but have never made either! It's a shame b/c they're so easy and healthy. I do always buy the organic and healthy bones for Corky still at least!

  3. What a great idea! I think I will make some for my dad's dog.

  4. Great idea! I'm sure my dog would love them. Thanks for hosting TATT.

  5. So funny that you posted this -I had just been searching for such a recipe! It's like you read my mind..... ooooh, ahhhhh!

  6. I will have to try and make these for my dog. What a fun idea..

    Here is something for you on my blog..

    This is for a great cause and I hope you join in...
    Happy Early Easter.

  7. Killian will LOVE these, thanks from him for passing this along!

  8. Thank you so much for this post! I'm new here, I'll have to take a look around and subscribe!!

  9. What a great idea! My dog is so picky when it comes to purchased treats. I bet he would love these because they would be like cookies to him and he begs for cookies. Thanks for sharing and for the sweet story about your dog!

  10. This is so cool. I just bought a dog bone shaped biscuit cutter last night at Goodwill. It came with some recipes but I am definitely going to try yours first. Thanks for the idea. By the way, be sure to enter my giveaway when you stop on over. Thanks.

  11. Peanut butter is Strudel's absolute favorite! Madison is always taking spoonfuls and when she does Strudel follows her around until she gets some!

    Justine :o )

  12. Homemade dog biscuits are such a treat for our beloved pooches! I'd have to make them gluten free, of course. ;-)

    I linked up Mom's Deviled Egg recipe, with step-by-step photos for those who have not made them before. Easy, mild flavored (kids love them, too!), and delicious. :-)


  13. Looks like a treat our dog would love - thanks for the post!

  14. This is my first time linking up with you! Thanks so much for hosting!

  15. Hello, I am new to your blog!!! I love this idea, I am getting so many good ideas, Thank You:)

  16. Thanks so much for this! I have the cutest bone cookie cutter and it would be perfect for these doggie treats. Do you think they would be okay if i left out the wheat germ/flax seed? I dont have that in my pantry.

  17. What a great recipe! And what perfect timing Cole! We've just brought home a new puppy. :)

  18. This is so great...I've been wanting to make our pup some homemade treats. And she loves PB. I'll give it a try. Thanks for posting!
