  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup toasted wheat germ

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

Dog Biscuits Tips

What is the best flour for dog biscuits?

Whole grain flours are the best to use for homemade dog treats because they offer the most nutrition, compared to all-purpose flour. Other common flours for making dog biscuits include brown rice flour, quinoa flour and buckwheat flour. It would best to stick with whole wheat flour in this recipe, since it was tested that way, unless you're up for experimenting! One more thing: Make sure you use full-fat peanut butter to make these treats. Reduced-fat varieties may include artificial sweeteners which can be poisonous to dogs.

How many dog biscuits can you give your dog at a time?

Dog biscuits are meant to be an occasional treat. Share just one or two a day with your pup. If you get your dog a treat from one of the many fast food chains with a secret menu for dogs, you should probably skip the homemade treats for a day.

How should you store peanut butter dog biscuits?

Store peanut butter dog biscuits at room temperature in an airtight container for 2 to 3 days, the refrigerator for up to 5 days and in the freezer for up to 3 months. If your furry friend loves these peanut butter dog biscuits, give homemade cheddar dog treats a try next!
