Peanut Butter Doggie Cookies

5 from 1 vote

Soft baked doggie cookies are irresistible. Pefect for older dogs or dogs with dental issues. But ALL DOGS love these cookies!

Our 14-year old dog, Rusty, recently had six teeth removed. Those six teeth were barely attached to his gum. He was soon diagnosed with cancer of the jaw. Because of his age we decided against the traditional medical options, removal of his jaw followed by radiation, and maybe chemo. This option might buy him a little more time, according to the vet. But what would his quality of life be while going through major surgery, radiation, and possibly chemo therapy? It was time to get to work!

Previously his food had consisted of homemade combined with dry food. Now, it’s 100% homemade. Many hours of research went into creating his new diet. Although a raw diet would have been ideal if his immune system had not already been compromised, I decided to go with a cooked diet of meats combined with small amounts of veggies and fruits.

After much research, Dr. Karen Becker’s Real Food for Dogs and Cats is where I found the basis for Rusty’s complete whole food diet. It’s been a lot of work preparing recipes, portioning for each meal, and cooking his food fresh for breakfast and dinner. Whether or not the change in diet makes a big difference in his health, I will always be happy that I gave it my best shot. Plus, Rusty absolutely loves his new diet and his appetite has only grown.

Peanut Butter Doggie Cookies were created specifically for dogs who have dental issues. Also, the coconut flour is a great source of fiber. Of course, younger dogs will also enjoy these healthy wholefood cookies.

NOTE: Check with your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet’s diet. Also, please be aware of any allergies your pet may have to specific ingredients and avoid ingredients which have caused reactions in your pets in the past. If you are unsure about a specific ingredient found in one of our recipes, introduce the food to your pets in small amounts first.

  1. I have heard many people say pumpkin is a wonderful food for a dog’s digestion. If I were to add pumpkin to these, what adjustments would be necessary to avoid the cookies being too wet? Also, how much pumpkin purée?

    1. Candice, I can’t say for certain since I haven’t tried pumpkin in this recipe. I do think you could sub half the water with pumpkin and it should be fine. Keep us posted.

  2. I made it exactly like you recommended but only made the cookies the size of a nickel and baked for 15 minutes. I have small dogs….So happy they freeze well. The dogs LOVE them. Thank you.

  3. I have made these for my two redbone hounds. I omitted the water and added pumpkin instead. My babies love these cookies. I put the dough onto floured surface and kneaded it to combine, also can not find coconut flour so I used whole wheat. This is a very healthy treat for dogs. Let mine get really crunchy to help with cleaning and maintaining their teeth.

  4. My dog loved these! Since it makes 24, I gave some to friends for their doggos and also got rave reviews. My dog is young with good teeth, but he’s never been a fan of hard biscuits like milk bones. I baked just 20 minutes and it was the perfect chewiness that he loves (more cookie-like texture than hard treat). They were very easy to make, will be making again!

    1. Amy, Yes I have. I added a little more flour, about 1 tablespoon at a time until I got the right consistency for roll out dough. Our dog loves them!!! 🙂
