Have you met our dogs yet?

We have three; a Lab named Tucker, a Miniature Poodle named Bella and a Toy Poodle named Louie. We didn’t set out to have three dogs, they somehow adopted our family – one puppy at a time – and they certainly do make us happy.

Poodle and a dog treat | One Dish Kitchen

My three older kids joke that when each child leaves, my husband and I get a new dog. This certainly wasn’t our intention, it just seemed to work out this way.

My dogs follow me all over the house. They sit at my feet when I’m working on the computer, they keep my kitchen clean when I’m testing out new recipes and they seem to know when 6 PM rolls around because they wait anxiously by the back door for my husband to come home.

Tucker, our Lab is the baby. He totally thinks he’s human and can’t seem to give us enough love. He’s just a big sweetheart.

Bella, our white poodle is affectionately known as our “cat”. I often feel like we are just taking up space in “her” house. She loves us by letting us live here. She’s “my” dog and the one we’ve had the longest and she really is sweet as can be.

Finally we have Louie. Oh, Louie. What can I say, he.is.a.handful.

If there is a such thing as “small-dog syndrome”, Louie has got it.

It’s funny how each of their personalities are so different.

Because I love these guys and because they are a big part of our family, I wanted to make them their own special treats and these homemade dog treats sure are special.

I love that these treats are made from real ingredients, nothing artificial added.

Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats

The best part of these homemade dog treats is that they’re so easy to make.

Just a few ingredients – whole wheat flour, oats, peanut butter, an egg, chicken broth, a banana, and nonfat dry milk.

These bone-shaped cookie cutters are so cute to use too!  I love that they come in different sizes, perfect for the three sizes of my own dogs.

  1. Yum! These look so good! I am always concerned about all the ingredients in store bought treats! Gonna have to give these a shot!

    1. Thanks so much, Lauren! They all have their very different personalities, for sure! My daughter has a Shih Tzu named Quincy and he is adorable. I hope your new puppy enjoys the treats!

  2. Jen @ The Weary Chef

    This is a great idea! I don't have a dog but I have friends who will surely love this as my gift to their pets! 😀

    1. Hi Debra, I'm sorry for my delay in responding to your question. The oven temperature should be 350 degrees F. The treats are more on the soft side – however if you leave them in the oven a little longer, they will get harder. I take them out of the oven after 15 minutes of cooking time and are slightly soft.

      1. 5 stars
        Thank you. They did come out slightly soft. Second batch was a little harder. Baked them for 23 mins. My dog waited by the oven as they cooked. He loves them!
        Thanks for the recipe. It's a keeper.
