Surprise your dog with a holiday homemade treat — crunchy Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits. Your dog will adore them, they’re quick and simple to make, and you likely have all you need to bake them right now.

The recipe was put to the test in the Woof Report Test Kitchen, and Woof Reporter and taste-tester Larry gives these all-natural biscuits four paws up.  In all honesty, Larry will eat anything and everything; however, he did seem to truly enjoy these crunchy biscuits, especially when they were warm from the oven.

The recipe is a top rated and tested one from, so read the online comments to see how people modified the recipe before you whip up a batch. For instance, most people simply used two additional cups of wheat flour to replace the spelt flour, and many bakers used flax seed germ instead of flax seeds, and reduced the cooking time down (our biscuits were cooked to perfection at around 25 minutes). Other suggestions including making the cookies in all sizes from dog biscuit-shaped and long thin strips to fit inside of a Kong toy to smaller sized to use for training.
