      So fun! Your pups will be sniffing around the oven like non other. Boofwoof over her knew I was up to something when I kept “baby talking” about what I was doing for her! REally fun and took hardly any time to whip up! LMK what they think of them! xo

      Bahaha! Um… yes? Ew. No they weren’t gross… but they definitely needed some sugar & salt if I was going to chow down on one. Ha! :)

    Hi Missy!
    I am your newest follower! I absolutely adore your site. Everything is preciously executed!
    I am such a dog person so I thought I would leave my comment here, even though I love your other pages too!

    Thanks for sharing!!

    I recently found your page on Pinterest and made these for my furbaby on her 3rd birthday. I noticed that the dough was a little sticky and I added a little more flour but that didn’t seem to help much. Any idea on what I could do next time?

    • Bonnie says:

      Hi! I tried these for the first time tonight (they came out great, by the way!) and made a few variations that helped… I added a couple spoonfuls of pumpkin puree (maybe 1/3 cup total?) and doubled the amount of oats. I also put a handful of flour down on the wax paper before I rolled it out, like you would for bread or cookie dough. I’ll definitely be making them again!

    • Lin says:

      Try chilling the dough for a while, like you would do for regular cookie dough. Also add a little flour to bottom of wax paper and top of the dough.

  • Bookmarked this a little while ago and am now coming back to it for a housewarming present for the little sheltie and two-legged pitbull who are moving in downstairs tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe!

  • shelby says:

    Lily and Tyson (my pups) are making these a a welcome home gift for the rescue pup my mom is expected bringing home from Colorado tomorrow. They are hoping they get the left overs!

    This may be a silly quesiton, but does the “T” in the recipe stand for teaspoons or table spoons?

    Thanks so much, you have a wonderful site!

  • katie says:

    love your photos & this recipe. I found it on pinterest a few weeks back. I made the biscuits for my pup’s birthday today. She loved them! I even had a moment to blog about them! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!!!

  • Lelia says:

    Made these for my sweet boy, Fox. I ended up subbing the olive oil for more applesauce, and since I have a VERY picky eater, we did sliced dried cranberries instead of coconut.

    It was so funny, because I caught my dad eating one and I told him “You know those are for the dog.. right?” and he had already eaten three!

    Thanks so much for a great recipe!

  • Michelle says:

    Found you in Pinterest and these were just too cute not to make. Took maybe 10 minutes start to finish to mix, heat, and pop in the oven. They’re cooking now and doggie is keep a close eye on the kitchen hoping that all that peanut buttery goodness is for her.

  • darby tish says:

    Found link on pinterest. Just made them! They were a hit. Making some for friends christmas presents.no one minds accepting treats for the dogs;) thanks

  • Jen says:

    My pup has food allergies, so I make all of her treats and I use rice flour. Made these today for her… she loves them! I didn’t have oats, so I used all rice flour for the flour and oats the recipe called for. The rice flour makes the dough gritty, which I think is totally appropriate for dog biscuits. I also used regular peanut butter instead of organic, because, let’s face it, my dog eats poop, so I don’t think she’s too picky about whether the PB is organic or not! I used a lot of flour on the counter and rolling pin when I rolled them out, but they were way easier to roll and cut than most people cookies!

    • Sue says:

      Had to comment…your message just made me laugh out loud and snort! Thanks for keeping it real!

  • Kristy says:

    Hi! I have these in the oven right now for my niece (wiener dog) and my sister (brown lab) HAHA. How long do they stay good? I was going to give them for Christmas but I’m wondering if I made them too early. Thanks so much!

    • missy says:

      I’d say 2 weeks max. But you can bake and freeze and they’ll stay good for months. After they’re baked, let them completely cool before putting them in a freezer safe container, seperating the bones using parchment paper. Defrost the day before by leaving them at room temperature. :)

  • Katie says:

    Hi guys! Wondering how many cookies these should make – I bought cookie cutters of large bones and tiny bones, trying to figure out if I need to double or triple the recipe since I am making xmas bags for 5 small dogs, and 2 LARGE dogs.

    Also – I have seen ones that had “dog-safe” colored yogurt on top as icing, anyone have a recipe for that? Let me know, thanks!

    Can’t wait to make these!!

    • missy says:

      It depends on the size of your cookie cutters. I used a size just larger than tradition wishbones (more for small to medium dogs). It made about a dozen. Hope this helps :)

  • Kacy says:

    What is carob and where do you get it? I keep seeing these awesome make your own dog treats, and half of them have carob, but I have no idea what it is. 😛

    • Paula Curcio says:

      Carob is fake chocolate for those that are allergic to chocolate. It can be hard to find. Usually you have to get it at a health food store or a natural food store.

  • Tammy says:

    I made these, my dog loves them! I am making them again this time I chopped up apple and added a bananna. Needed a little extra flour but they smell good!

  • bonnie says:

    I made these this morning (Christmas Morning) for our little poochie. We will be delivering some to friends and family pets this afternoon. Thanks for the recipe, Mia loves them!!

  • Julie says:

    I made these tonight for my little one and his four legged friends. He just tasted the first one and licked up every last crumb! Instead of the coconut I just used chopped up apple. They turned out perfectly. Thank you for this simple, yummy dog treat recipe :)

  • mae says:

    Hi there, I just made these for my puppy and I wasn’t sure if your recipe called for tsp or tbs? I just kind of guessed in the middle but added a little more oil because I didn’t have any apple sauce. I’m sure my puppy will love them but they seemed a little dry.

  • Erika says:

    Made these for my Boston Terrier today for the first time. He got “crazy eyes” he loved them so much :-) (This is when his large eyes get abnormally large and he acts like some sort of fiend which normally only happens when he gets something special from Three Dog Bakery)! Great recipe.

  • Sonja says:

    Our little Sophie loves, loves, loves these! Thank you so much for sharing. Sophie is even sharing them with her “cousins” as a belated Christmas gift.

  • Nicole says:

    I was making these for my dog, but it was very sticky. We didn’t try rolling them out, instead just made them ball shaped. Did you refrigerate the dough for a while first?

    • missy says:

      No, I didn’t refrigerate but if it’s sticky then you need a bit more flour. Do you live in a higher altitude? That would make a difference. Try them again adding a bit more flour this go around. Flour your ball & rolling pin a bit before rolling and that will help as well. :)

  • Paula Curcio says:

    I just made these for my dog’s first birthday. He loves them! Now I’m going to make some more for my neighbor and co-workers dogs.

  • Kelly says:

    I have a bichon and a poodle… I have found that removing wheat flour from the bichon’s diet has ended all red staining under her eyes. This is not true for poodles. I wonder if the flour could be replaced with oat or rice flour??

  • Jason says:

    Just found this through pinterest, unfortunately I no longer have a pup to make these for. That recipe, though…I may just make them for myself! Looks tasty!

  • Cindy says:

    Thank you for this recipe. My dogs also thank you. Where did you get the cut out shaped like a bone? I live in the country and I don’t go to a big city to find things like this so I would appreciate the information.

  • Breezy says:

    I made these for my dogs this afternoon. They will not leave me alone! I used a small dog bone cookie cutter and it made a TON! I will be sending some to work with my Hubby to give away. Thank you!

  • Joann says:

    I just baked these and they look and smell divine! I made these for my boyfriends little sisters pup and I am way too sure she is going to LOVE these! Thanks for the recipe.

  • Sarah says:

    My dog LOVES these biscuits. Every time I make them he sits as close as I will let him and drools constantly as I throw these ingredients together as quickly as possible.

    We’ve shared them with all of his canine friends in our apartment building and they are now the most coveted treat. When we run out I become slightly concerned for my safety :)

  • joann brown says:

    Just found you on pinterest, GOSh your family is good looking! My brother and his trusty dog live w/my husband and I. Im going to try these over the weekend. “Brownie” (the dog) should be named ” Hoover” after the vacuum cause she will eat anything if it falls on the floor..I do believe she will love these!

  • Nay says:

    Heyyy! I’ve been wanting to make treats for my KC but I’ve been worried about the safety of them. Have you checked to make sure these ingredients are completely safe? And can they eat them everyday?

  • Amy says:

    LOVE this! They are actually in the oven now…. they are huge and look delicious… I even made me and my Fiance one haha

  • Lynn says:

    I am teaching a Sunday school class on sharing and we are going to try your cookies for a Sunday School project to deliver to the shelter. I have to do this the last weekend of this month and will let you know how it goes. I like the simple ingredients. There are only 9 children but 2 are autistic so if they eat the ingredients it will be ok.. I am very nervous about this but am going to try it anyway!

  • Karen says:

    plan to make these for all my co-workers furkids for Christmas. Love the way you have them packaged too, so will copy that also. Thanks so much!!

  • Kait says:

    Love, love, love this! But mine turned out a little runny and were hard to get from the wax to the cookie sheet so I ended up just rolling them into balls and flattening them. I used carrot instead of coconut…could that be the problem?

  • Catherine says:

    This is my second year in a row making these treats and giving them out as Christmas gifts to my friends and family with fur-kids. They’re always such a great hit.

    Both times, however, its turned out very sticky, so I always end up using far more flour than called for. My sweet pup will always follow his nose to the kitchen and lay patiently by my feet as I’m rolling it out. The kitchen truly does smell amazing.

    Also, I’ve had difficulty over the years trying to find unsweetened coconut, so I’ve used regular sweetened coconut and subbed unsweetened applesauce as a tradeoff. Think that’s okay to do?

  • Jen says:

    I commented a year ago (Dec. 10, 2011) on this recipe after my first try. I have made it many, many times since! I haven’t yet met a dog who doesn’t love these. We even made them this year and gave them out to all of our dog friends for Christmas. I can’t thank you enough for sharing this awesome recipe!

  • Angela Smith says:

    Does it matter what kind of milk is used? We drink skim but I find for cooking it can be too thin. My pup’s birthday is coming up so I’m going to make a batch for him this week!

  • Kim says:

    I can’t wait to try these with my bassett/beagle Quincy. We are going to hv fun tmw.

    Question…. do u hv a recipe for that chocolate looking coatingnyou sometimes see on dog biscuits?? Just thought I wld ask 😉

  • Diane H. says:

    My fur babies haven’t tasted them yet because they’re still in the oven but he has been standing beside me whining since he started smelling them. Thank you so much for the recipe. My Yorkie is allergic to many things so I’m crossing my fingers with the peanut butter
