Dog Cookie Recipe Made Easy!

Updated on February 17, 2012


Hear is what your going to need.

1.) 4 Cups of whole wheat flour.

2.) 2 Cups of wheat germ.

3.) 2 Cups peanut butter.

4.) 1/4 Cup regular honey.

5.) 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 Cups water.

Cookie Making Time.

Put all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly to create your dough, if needed add more water to make the dough pliable for rolling out.

Apply wheat flower generously on to a counter or table top and put plenty of flour on to your rolling pin. To make it easier on you do small portions at a time, about the size of a fist. This will make your roll-out much easier.

Roll the dough out so it is real thin, about 1/16" to 1/8" evenly. This will make them crispy, if they are thick they won't be as crunchy for your pet to enjoy. Using a plastic 8oz. cup lightly relax the dough back to its center. This will help keep your cookies evenly round.

Using a shot glass at the furthest edge place on to the dough and press down hard enough to go through the dough and give the Shot Glass a little spin cut your cookie free. Repeat this process for all other cookies.

Take the left overs and add it back into the dough and add more water to make pliable for your next batch to roll out. When you have them all cut out,pre-heat oven to 325*. While your waiting for the oven you should have enough time to clean up most of the mess. I don't throw anything away. Instead i just put the left over flour from the table in some water and pour it over the dog food as if it were gravy. and the excess trimmings i just bake them and they become the odd ball cookies.

On a cookie sheet spray with Pam or grease pan and place cookies on sheet. They wont need a lot of room between them so about 1/4" would be sufficient enough room between cookies. Place pan on the middle rack and cook for 25 to 30 min depending on cookie thickness. On the first batch watch for them to brown to get the desired time.

When finished let stand and cool. Never store them in a zip lock bag unless they are going in the freezer. Instead place them in a bowl uncovered they will keep much longer this way. I have tried keeping them in closed containers in the cupboard and within a week or so they start to become moldy.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as i do. my lovely great Dane sits outside the freezer every night after dinner and whines till she gets her cookie. Its just to funny and i had to let everyone know.

      This recipe looks good enough for people to eat. It looks more like a cookie than a dog treat. That's perfect, the dog thinks he is people. So, my dog would absolutely love these treats..

      MissBex Thank you for your comment, to answer your question i had to do some research and i found this post for you. Honey is nontoxic and actually contains essential nutrients and vitamins, although, it is recommended that you do not give more than one teaspoonful of honey a day.

      Still, it might not be safe to give them to puppies.

      Honey should never be served to babies or puppies. There may be botulism spores in the honey that can effect the youngest of our “children.” Older animals and humans have immune systems strong enough to tolerate it. Honey is fine for your adult dogs, just don’t give it to puppies.

      Sounds good! Thanks for sharing. I much prefer to make my own treats (when time allows) not just because of the savings, but I know exactly what my "fur baby" is eating. BTW, I didn't know it was safe to give dog honey. For some reason I had it stuck in my mind that babies and dogs shouldn't have honey. Have you ever heard this?
