Simple Homemade Dog Cookies

homemade dog treats #ad #ProPlanPet-1

While it is so easy to just purchase dog treats, there are lots of reasons to make your own.  First off, you know exactly goes into them.  Secondly, they are so simple!  Sammie has tummy problems and just can’t tolerate many purchased dog treats (plus have you ever seen what they put in most of them!), so making our own only makes sense.  You only need four simple ingredients that most of us have in our kitchen cabinets.  And what does doesn’t love peanut butter?

In a matter of minutes you can whip these baby together and make them into any fun shape.  If you don’t have cookie cutters, use a glass to make them into round disks like a biscuit.


  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 Tbls natural creamy peanut butter
  • 1 eggs


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, applesauce and peanut butter until smooth.

Add the flour mix to form a stiff, dry dough ball. (If the dough is too dry, add a few drops of water. If it is too moist, add a tablespoon or two of flour).

Dust your work space with a little flour and knead your dough into a ball. Roll it out until it is about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Use your cookie cutters to cut out shapes.

With left over dough, reform ball, re-roll and repeat.

Place cookies onto an un-lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and flip over. Continue to bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until completely dry.

Allow your dog cookies to cool before giving to your furry loved one!

Tip: Don’t have applesauce on hand, substitute it with pumpkin or mashed sweet potatoes.  Store in an airtight container for 3-4 days or freeze for longer storage.

Have you ever made homemade dog treats (cookies)?
