My 2 year old granddaughter Lucy helped make them! Dogs love them all 4 of them!
Hi Cyndi – Thanks so much for letting me know! I’m glad you and Lucy had fun making them – and all 4 dogs gave the treats a “paws up!” Have a nice weekend!
Omg my 3 schnauzers love them. I made them a little them smaller so I got a double batch. They have smalllittle mouths anyway. Thanks you know your dogs for sure!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
So glad to hear Kaye!! Give them all a hug from me!
Made these for my lab, you get 2 paws up for this recipe from Chester!
Made smaller ball type treats and didn’t worry about the crisscross fork pattern.
Thanks for sharing this simple recipe!!
Thanks Chester!! ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you Tina for this fabulous and easy recipe. My Bailey loves them!
Hi Desiree – So glad Bailey loves them!! ❤️❤️❤️
Thanks for a great recipe! Four paws up from my fur children here. I love giving them treats that I know are good for them. One of my dogs needs softer treats due to issues with a growth in her mouth that requires surgery and constant monitoring. Both dogs are older, rescues, spoiled, and extremely special.
Aww – Hi to your sweet fur children!
Hi, I have two small yorkies and they are little divas And finicky and to my surprise they both love the cookies. better to do is to stay home nowadays!!!! Love the recipe!!! Stay in good health!!!!!
Thanks Debbie – Hugs to your yorkie Divas!! Glad they enjoyed! Stay well!!
Can you use quick oats for this recipe?
I’m sure that would be fine!
Tina if I would make these cookies more on the chewy side, how long should I bake them?
Depending upon the size you make the cookies – it will vary – but start watching them at 10-12 minutes and remember they will firm up even more while cooling.
Thank you for telling people about xylitol. Many don’t realise it is in peanut butter and toxic to dogs
Take care Julie!
My dog Kramer loves them he ate them up quickly. Thank you for this recipe it was very easy.
So glad Kramer enjoyed them!! Hi Kramer!!

My little Yorkie doesn’t have teeth. Are these soft or hard? Is there a way to make them soft if they’re not? Thank you! Merry Christmas 🎄
Hi there Heidi – You can bake them less time for a softer texture. You could also try these treats that are unbaked Ruff, Ruff Truffles: Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Dog Treats or these softer treats Carrot and Applesauce Chewies (Homemade Dog Treats)
hey, I’m 12 and I made them by myself. I encourage you to make them guys try out the recipe. p.s my dogs loved them soooooooooooooooooooo much.
Love it Kayla!! Good for you! Hi to the dogs!
I can’t believe that all 3 of my dogs loved them. They are so picky. I even made some for a few of my neighbors dogs and they all said they could not believe how much they loved them. Thanks for sharing
Thanks for letting me know Stacy! Hi to all the doggies!
Made these for my 4 January pups birthdays. I put in silicone paw and bone molds and came out great and crunchy
Happy Birthday to all the pups!!
Hi Pat, I was just coming here to ask if I could put them in silicone molds. I wanted to use paws and bones as well! Thanks for sharing your success. (ps. I know this was over 2 years ago, but I still thought I would let you know.
My senior dog, Bitty loves these! I reduced the cooking time by 3 minutes and I keep a slice of bread in the container to keep them soft. They look so yummy, in fact that my 24 year old daughter mistook them for cookies and ate 4.
So glad Bitty enjoys them! Hi to her! …and if I’m being honest – I’ve eaten them too – hey – it’s all good ingredients! LOL
Hi, my son and I tried this recipe cause we are desperately in need of something to help us put back on a healthy weight on our Irish setter after an emergency operation. And she loves them!!!! Thanks for these easy to make and obviously delicious barkies: thumps and paws up!!
So glad she loves them – Wishing her a speedy recovery!
Could these be frozen? I am a dog walker and all my clients love these so I would like to make large batches and keep them in the freezer.
Hi Jess – absolutely – they can be frozen!
What an easy recipe. Made these for a friend who has a small dog so I did little hearts and then just rolled in a lid and cut them in circles. My house smells so great and Ibwant to eat the cookies. Lol. Will make these again. Thanks
So glad you like!! I have tasted them – lol! All good ingredients!
I fix these all the time! My dogs go crazy for these and I have 4 of them so I make 4 times this recipe so that I have enough to last a while. I tasted one and it’s pretty good. Needs a little sugar for me but I like the fact that I know exactly what’s in these and so much cheaper than store bought.
So glad they love them! And I have tasted too! LOL!
These were super easy to make and my dogs love them! A keeper for sure.
Is this dough firm enough to roll out and use cookie cutters? I know my dogs will love them either way.
I made these today and my two American Eskimo/ Spitz puppies love them. I will be making these again thank you so much for the recipe
What is the name of peanut butter are you using?
What peanut do you use
My dog will now only eat these treats!
