Pargo and Pesto's Puppy Poppers

There are many great dog treat recipes out there, and when I came across the following recipe with just four basic ingredients, I couldn't wait to try.

I knew that my boys would love anything with peanut butter.

These little poppers were so simple to make. They can be cut out with cute cookie cutters, or cut up (like I did in the picture) into small pieces. The texture of the cookie is similar to chocolate chip cookies - therefore, easy to chew and perfect for training.

I was right! The puppies went gaga for them - they couldn't stop wagging their tails. I think with this new treat, I just might be able to teach them how to do cartwheels. :)

Pargo and Pesto's Puppy Poppers:
recipe from

- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup peanut butter, chunky or smooth
- 1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 375F. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes (or if using for training - cut out circles using a small round cookie cutter or cut small pieces using a pizza cutter).

Bake for 13-15 minutes on a baking sheet until lightly brown. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container.

  1. Ooh, this sounds so simple I'm pretty I can manage it without botching it up! I'll have to give this a go one of these days.

  2. The recipe sounds good. I could even make myself some of these! Maybe I'll make some for me and share some with the dogs down at the wharf. :)

  3. i am SO getting a puppy just so that i can make this! or the other way around.

  4. Oh lucky puppies! Did you taste them? :)

  5. @ knickknacks: I didn't. =p Although the ingredients are all perfectly edible, I have a problem eating stuff that I specifically made for dogs.

  6. tastes like a blander peanutbutter cookie on the dry side. yup!

  7. I think Pargo's expression says, "I'm in heaven!" :)
