One of the things about baking dog treats is avoiding baking powder and baking soda which doesn’t always make for a fluffy baked good for our furry-legged friends. These cookies don’t look deflated and were a favorite with the doxies! Cutting the “+” into the cookies makes giving treats later easier, breaking the cookie in 1/2 or quarters easily.


  • 1 C Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 C Oat flour (put 1 C of oats used for oatmeal in blender and blend to powder)
  • 2 T Peanut Butter (no xylitol)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4-1/3 C water
  • 1/2 C Carob Chips (available on Amazon)


Mix the dry ingredients and then combine with the peanut butter, egg and add 1/4 C water add more if needed to get the dough to combine. Last, fold in the carob chips. Spoon small cookies, 1 1/2 inch-ish balls, onto cookie sheet. Press cookies down with a flat surfaced glass to about 1/2 inch thick. Using a knife cut in a “+” not all the way through but 1/2-2/3 through the cookie. Bake at 325 for 20-25 minutes.

Note about peanut butter from

“Fortunately, there are only a few peanut butter brands that use xylitol as an ingredient. That peanut butter sitting in your pantry is probably safe for your dog. The most popular brands of peanut butter, such as Jif, Skippy, Smuckers and Peter Pan are all xylitol-free.” More
