Peanut Butter Sandwiched Dog Treats*

Peanut Butter Sandwiched Dog Treats (recipe via

I don’t have kids in the traditional sense, but I do have Brody (and the cats). And as my Granny likes to say, Brody thinks he is my baby. Considering how spoiled he is, it isn’t much of a surprise.

Jorge and I got Brody very early in our relationship. Brody was 4 months old and had ears that were bigger than him. After looking at his paperwork, we discovered that Brody was actually born on our first date and that his mother was named Driving Miss Daisy.

At the time that was my nickname. I was driving around in a big white Cadillac DeVille. If you don’t know much about Cadillacs — it’s the land yacht of cars and couldn’t fit in a normal parking spot. Plus, I’m pretty sure no one under 50 drives them (I was 19 at the time). I thankfully only had to drive it for a couple of months, but the name stuck.

We like to think that Brody was destined to be ours…and here we are 7 years later and I’m still spoiling him rotten.

Peanut Butter Sandwiched Dog Treats (recipe via

This is my third version of treats I have made just for Brody. He is a fool for peanut butter. You can not even open up the jar without him loosing his mind! So while I have made three different treats…they are all peanut butter! You have the Peanut Butter & Oat Bones with Frosting & Sprinkles, the Banana Peanut Butter Cookie and now these Peanut Butter Sandwiched Dog Treats.

I made these with the dog treats you find at Petco in mind. You know the ones they have in those buffet style treat bins? They make these sandwich peanut butter cookies that Brody goes gaga over. I figured I could make something similar, but for a lot less money. By the way he has been gulping these down, I think they are a major success!


Peanut Butter Sandwiched Dog Treats

Yield: 32 sandwiched treats


  • 1 1/4 cup flour, plus a little extra for cutting dough
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • additional peanut butter for sandwiching


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.

In a large bowl (or stand mixer), combine all ingredients, beating until a soft dough forms.

Dust counter with flour. Pat out dough into a large rectangle, about 1 inch in depth. Using a 1 1/2 inch circle shaped cookie cutter, cut into circles. Use all dough.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they are a uniform color on top (as they bake, the color will actually lighten instead of darken). Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.

When your pup deserves a treat, smear a little peanut butter in the center of two cookies and sandwich them together!

I store these cookies without the peanut butter in the center. Then when I want to give Brody a treat, I put some fresh peanut butter in the center and sandwich the cookies together right before I hand it to him. The treats stay fresh for much longer this way (up to 2 weeks).

Brody says they are lip smacking good!

    I forgot to add this when I took your survey recently, but I love your dog treats post! I made your peanut butter oat bones to give as gifts for Xmas last year and my friend’s dogs loved them, as did my dog! Also, I love seeing Brody on your blog. He’s such a cutie!

    This is too funny because I’m working on a pet feature at my job that includes homemade dog food and treats. I’ve never actually made homemade treats before, but I think these would be the perfect things to try first! Super cute!

    Oh my goodness my pup Gus would go nuts over these. But is it weird that I really want some for myself…? Ok, it is, but I’m OK with it.

    Do you recommend placing the peanut butter on the cookies even if they’re not being eaten yet? I wanted to give them as gifts.

      No, I would wait until they are being served…or not even worry about it at all. Sometimes I add the peanut butter for an extra treat and sometimes I skip it. Brody (our dog) loves them either way!

    I love these! How cute. As I was reading your story, I laughed. At 17 i was driving a 1980 Caddy, coupe DeVille-17.5 feet to be exact, lol. Then I saw a Pic of Brody! I have 3 cockers as well. They LOVE their PB. Thanks again.
