Last Minute Home-Made Dog Biscuits

A Kendall Oberto Recipe

Whole Wheat & Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Here is a sweet little gift for the dog lovers in your life. These are quick and easy to make and super popular with all my dog buddies. Recipe comes courtesy of Ina Garden at The yield will depend on the size of your cookie cutter. I used one that measures about 3 1/2 inches wide which made about 20 biscuits.
Servings 20 Biscuits


  • 1 1/2 cups stone-ground whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered or dry milk
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant), plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp toasted wheat germ
  • 1 egg extra large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp of water, for egg wash


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
    In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the two flours, the powdered milk, oatmeal, peanut butter and wheat germ. With the mixer on low speed, add the extra-large egg and 1 cup of water and mix just until it forms a slightly sticky ball.
    Dump the dough out on a well-floured board (I use all-purpose flour) and knead it into a ball. Roll the dough out 1/2-inch thick. Dip a cookie cutter in flour and cut out dog bone shapes. Collect the scraps, knead lightly, roll out again and cut more dog biscuits.
    Place the biscuits on the prepared sheet pan and brush with the egg wash. Sprinkle with oatmeal and bake for 1 hour, until completely hard. Cool and toss.
