Make these homemade dog treats, then check out more of our homemade food gifts for Christmas including our Christmas fudge and chocolate truffles.


  • 150g wholemeal flour
  • 100g porridge oats
  • 100g natural smooth peanut butter, (check that there is no Xylitol present as it is poisonous to dogs)
  • 2 tbsps coconut oil
  • 1 egg, beaten


  • STEP 1

    Whizz the flour and oats in a food processor until fine, then tip into a bowl. Warm the peanut butter and coconut oil in a pan with 4 tbsp water, then mix into the dry ingredients with the beaten egg until you have a dough, adding a little more water if it’s a touch dry. Cool.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Roll the dough out to the thickness of a £1 coin, using a dusting of flour if it sticks.

  • STEP 3

    Use a cutter to cut shapes or cut into small squares. Put on a baking-paper-lined tray and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the biscuits are golden.

  • STEP 4

    Cool completely then store in an airtight jar. Will keep for up to 2 weeks.
