Instructions:
  • Preheat the oven to 175°C / 350°F.
  • Combine ingredients together in a bowl and mix together until you form a ball.
  • If the mixture is too wet, add more flour. If it’s too dry, add a little more water.
  • Sprinkle a little flour on your surface and roll dough out to about 1/4 inch thickness.
  • Cut into shapes with a cookie cutter (we used similar to these top-rated dog bone cookie cutters on Amazon).
  • Place on baking paper and bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges start to brown.
  • Turn off the oven and leave your cookies to crisp up.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool before serving or storing.

*Makes approx. 20 treats (depending on the size of your cookie cutter).

4 x Fun Dog Cookie Decoration Ideas

Now we’re really getting to the fun part!

These DIY dog treat decorating ideas are great for making extra special (and adorable) homemade dog treats.

Bonus points for being Instagrammable too.

#1. Ice Cream Sandwich

Easily turn your peanut butter dog cookies into a scrumptious ice cream sandwich!

WHAT YOU NEED:

Mix 1 tsp of the cinnamon into the greek yoghurt.

If you’d like a thicker ‘ice cream’ filling, place in the freezer for 30 minutes to thicken.

Spoon the filling on to one of your peanut butter dog cookies, then place a second cookie on top to create a sandwich.

Dust lightly with remaining cinnamon. Voila!

*Quantities and method will vary slightly depending on how many doggie sandwiches you’re making, and how thick you’d like the ‘ice cream’ filling to be.

#2. Turmeric Drizzle

Want to spice things up a little?

As we covered in our no bake pumpkin dog treat recipe, turmeric is a healthy spice for dogs thanks to its antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Plus, its irresistible colour makes it a fun and natural dog cookie icing to work with too!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Mix ingredients together in a small bowl.

Using a spoon, drizzle the turmeric mix over the top of your cookies.

How you drizzle your icing is up to you. Zig zags, stripes or straight up Jackson Pollock style…get creative and have fun!

#3. Banana Boat

A simple, sweeter way to sneak a little added fruit into your pup’s diet!

#4. Personalized Dog Cookie Cutters

It’s always nice to add a pawsonal touch to your DIY dog treats!

For these peanut butter dog treats, we used Kubed custom dog treat molds on Etsy

They were perfect for adding a little fun and personalization to our cookies (our Sunny has many ridiculous nicknames – ‘Sausage’ and ‘Sossy’ just to name a few!)
