Give a dog a bone

We had so much fun on National Dog Day that we just couldn't pass up an opportunity to celebrate National Dog Week!

Our Twitter pals @DogTipper (husband & wife team, Paris and John) offered to share one of their go-to (doggie) recipes with us that's very paw-pular on their site, DogTipper.com. Let us know if you try it out and what your pooch thinks!

Peanut Butter  & Carrot Dog Bones

Dog treats for your four-legged friend are easy and fun to make. Bone-shaped and other dog-related cookie cutters are fun but your dog won’t mind if you simply cut the dough into squares.

homemade dog treats


1 cup peanut butter

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 cup multigrain cereal or bran flakes, crushed (do NOT use cereals with raisins)

1/2 cup shredded carrots

2 tablespoons baking powder

1 tablespoon molasses

1/2 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients then add the wet ingredients, adding the water just a spoonful at a time. The amount of water required will vary based on the moisture in the peanut butter.

Work the dough on a lightly floured surface. If the dough is too sticky, sprinkle with more flour; if it’s too dry, add just a little water.

Roll out the dough to about a 1/4-inch thickness then cut with a cookie cutter.

Place cookies at least half inch apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes until both sides are lightly browned, then cool treats before refrigerating.
