Peanut Butter & Applesauce Dog Biscuit Recipe


All the back to school stories these last few weeks have me thinking peanut butter…and that, combined with cooler weather (hooray! thank you, Tropical Storm Hermine!) made it a good, rainy afternoon for some peanut butter dog treat baking.


  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup peanut butter (I used chunky peanut butter)
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease two cookie sheets. Next, just mix all your ingredients, stirring until they’re well-mixed and ready for kneading. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface. Depending on the oil in your peanut butter, you might have to add a teaspoon of olive oil if you find the mixture is a little too crumbly (I did).


Roll the dough out to about 1/4 inch thickness then cut the dough in desired shapes and place on your cookie sheets.

Pop the cookie sheets in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes until lightly browned.


Let the doggie biscuits cool completely before serving them to your dog or refrigerating them. They were very popular in this house (and even inspected by one of our cats, Linus!)
