A little free time always benefits my dogs, Tanner & Chloe. Usually, free time is in the form of an extra walk, but this week with the super cold temps I decided to make them some early Valentine Treats. Don’t they look like they need some homemade dog treats? One of them is overly dramatic! Can you guess which one?
I did a quick Google search, but some of the ingredients required an extra trip to the grocery store. So when I found a 3 ingredient recipe (milk, wheat flour and peanut butter) I was set. Technically it’s 4 if you count the baking powder.
It was easy to mix, roll out and cut. Just like a thick sugar cookie dough.
The only trouble I had was with the recipe. It had several typos and I suspect the oven temperature was one of the the typos. The original recipe said 200 degrees, but after 40 minutes the dog bones were super smooshy. So with some random temperature changes I settled on a cookie temperature of 350. I would start at 350 and bake for 20 minutes to get a baseline on a correct temperature. (That last sentence sounded so technical)! I sorted & wrapped these treats up with twine on sale from Crate&Barrel. Let’s not forget our pets for Valentines Day! These make great gifts for neighbors or teachers’ pets (get it)?
- 2 cups whole wheat flour,
- 2 TBSP baking powder,
- 2 cups chunky peanut butter
- 2 cups skim milk
- The original recipe I found online had multiple typos. I suspect the oven temperature was one of the typos.

I would start at 350 and bake for 20 minutes to get a baseline on a correct temperature. Trust me your dog will love these regardless of whether they are over or slightly undercooked!
IS that milk powder or milk
Your fur babies are so cute! I’ve always wanted to make our own dog treats, so I’m glad that you shared the recipe. Thanks so much!

200 degrees sounds like a Celsius cooking temperature to me (hot oven). I know that 350 F is 180 C (moderate oven) so you could probably even go a little hotter if you liked. :o)
Thanks for comment. Let me know if you bake at a different temperature! laura
