I followed the recipe as close as I could with what I had on hand. Instead of wheat germ I used wheat bran, which is naturally 'sweet'. Since my Labrador needs no additional reason to be happy I also left out the honey. Out of the 2 dog biscuit recipes I have he prefers this one, it's more peanutty. (I know I tried a bite). It only made 14 biscuits with a medium-size round biscuit cutter, so next time I will at least double the recipe. As for the cook - don't be stingy with the flour when rolling it out. thank you!

The picture that accompanies this recipe is deceiving and it may be carob coating which is OK but NEVER EVER dip your dog cookies in chocolate. Chocolate is very toxic to dogs. Read More

I made this recipe on Sunday and to my surprise my dogs love them! I did not follow recipe as what prompted me to make them is that I was out of the dogs regular "cookies" and didn't want to run to the store. I used flaxseed meal (had on hand) instead of wheat germ assuming it has the same healthful benefits for dogs as it does for peops. I took the suggestion from another reviewer and pressed the cookies with a fork rather than rolling and cutting them out. I also doubled the recipe. (Our dogs get rewarded alot!) Dough a bit sticky and would have required additional flour for rolling/cutting. Otherwise fantastic recipe! I love knowing what's really gowing in my dogs tummies! I plan to wean my pups from the other. Read More

These are 100% Patterdale Terrier approved! My dog went crazy for these treats. I did make a few minor alterations... upped the peanut butter to 1/2 a cup, added an extra 1/2 cup of flour. I substituted 1/2 cup of crushed Wheaties cereal for the wheat germ because that's all I had on hand, and used just a TINY bit of honey (because the Wheaties have sugar in them). I used 2 bananas and it was just perfect. Thank you!!! Read More

I really didn't want to roll out the dough so I just rolled into balls and flattened with a fork. They baked just fine as directed. At first my dog wouldn't take the treats so I was a bit worried. I tried again and he ate several. Don't know what was wrong with him before. Anyway easy and quick. I used 1 banana and it seemed like it was about 1/2 cup. Read More

If I had a dog I assume he/she would like them. They are a pretty healthy snack so I actually made them for myself! Clearly they're a bit dry but not too shabby when dunked in coffee or tea. I found it fun, in a gross way, to roll the dough into a narrow rod shape and stack them into little "piles". Read More

My beagle loves these treats and he's a picky little eater. I added a little bit of oatmeal to the recipe so it would be a little less sticky and good for him too! They take a bit longer to cook (about 3 minutes longer). I added extra peanut butter and 2 bananas. I did add some honey but on a teaspoon because my dog is spoiled enough! haha. Best dog treat recipe i've made. (: Thanks for the recipe! Read More

My two dogs absolutely love these...I didn't have any wheat germ on hand so as one reviewer had done I used oatmeal instead. Took the time to roll out the dough and used cute little gingerman cookie cutters. I have decided I will be giving these out to all the dog lovers I know this Christmas! Read More
