Peanut Butter Oatmeal Dog Treats

We have two sweet labs in our family.  Our black lab, Dakota, turned 8 this weekend so I made her some special dog treats.  They smelled just like peanut butter cookies baking, but I did not taste them since they have chicken broth in the dough.  Our puppy dogs ate them up so quickly that I don't even think they chewed them.  I can probably speak for them and say they were tasty.  I found this recipe on Jun-Blog.

You can use any cookie cutters you have at home, or buy special dog friendly shapes such as a dog bone, dog house, or fire hydrant.  I simply drew a very large dog bone template onto a piece of thin cardboard and cut it out.  After I rolled out the dough, I traced around the template with a small sharp paring knife.  It worked great since I was in a bind, but I did add dog bone cookie cutters to my Amazon wish list for their Christmas treats.

I hope you make some of these special treats for your four legged family members.  They will definitely be your best friends forever!


1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 T olive oil
1 cup Old fashioned oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, peanut butter, honey, and olive oil.  In a separate bowl, stir together the oats, whole wheat flour, and all purpose flour.  Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir.  If the dough is sticky, add more flour so it can easily be rolled out.

Sprinkle your work surface with flour and roll the dough out to about 3/8" thickness.  Cut out treats using cookie cutters.  Roll out leftover scraps and continue cutting out treats until all dough is used.  Place on prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes.  Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.  Store leftovers in an airtight container or ziplock bag.
