Easy Dog Treats Ingredients List

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Water

Method To Make Simple Dog Treats

  1. Measure out all the ingredients into a bowl. Use a spoon to blend, or a mixer to combine them together. Pour in a small amount of water, as you need your mixture soft enough to roll out as dough, but not so powdery that it’s going to fall apart. 
  2. Once the dough is soft enough, pick it up in small bunches and roll into balls. You’ll discover that the warmth from your hands makes them malleable. 
  3. Add more water if you need it, but not so much that the dough is going to be too soft. If you do make them too soft, simply add a bit more flour in. 
  4. Once you have formed the smaller balls of dough, you can now break them into small pieces.
  5. Sprinkle some flour onto your clean counter. (pre-clean with vinegar and wipe dry with a clean cloth.) Place your dough onto the counter and press down with the palms of your hands until it’s flattened. Grab your pastry roller and roll it out to a thickness of not more than 1/4 inch. 
  6. Use a butter knife and cut out bone shapes. You may also use cookie cutters of different shapes or sizes. 

Baking Time For Yummy Dog Treats

  1. Carefully place the uncooked dog treat shapes onto cookie sheets. It may help to use a small pie server to help scoop up the treat and place it on the pan. Whether you decided to make round dog treats or special shapes, they should be spaced out about two inches apart. 
  2. Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes at 325°F. Check the treats after 12 minutes, as everyone’s ovens are different.
  3. Making treats is as tricky as making cookies. They may not look like they’re done yet, but when you remove them from the oven they will harden. You can take a metal spatula and carefully flip over one of the treats. If it’s browned on the bottom, it means they’re done. Stay by the oven and carefully watch the dog treats cook. If you begin to smell a burning smell, remove them immediately from the oven.
  4. Let your dog treats cool down. Now you’ve learned how to make dog treats with minimum effort that will leave both dogs and people amazed!
