Four Ingredient Dog Biscuits

Catching up with friends is always 'an excuse to bake' for me but what about my four legged friends? I decided to create four ingredient dog biscuits for them (and because they're the real reason I'm friends with their human)

Total time to make : 30 minutes

Time to prepare : 10 minutes

Time to bake : 20 minutes

Servings : ~ 65 thumb sized biscuits


300g flour (wholemeal or plain)

2 eggs

80ml warm water + 1 beef stock

100g peanut butter (xylitol free)

*1 extra egg, beaten, as egg wash (optional)


  1. Pre-heat a fan oven to 180C and line baking trays with non-stick paper

  2. Dissolve the stock cube or gel into the warm water

  3. Put everything in a bowl and mix together into a dough

  4. Lightly flour a surface and roll the dough out to about 1cm thick

  5. Use a cookie-cutter to punch shapes into the dough, flour the cookie cutter if the dough tends to stick to it. Lay the shapes out on the baking tray. They won't rise/spread very much in the oven so you don't need to space them apart

  6. If using the egg-wash (for a shiny finish), brush the beaten egg over the biscuits just before they go into the oven

  7. Bake for 20 minutes and remove from oven

  8. Remove from oven and allow them to cool completely before storing (see notes below)

Good to know:

  • Can also be used with chicken stock, or just use warm water

  • Xylitol is toxic to dogs so please check ingredients in the peanut butter first

  • I used this bone-shape cookie cutter from lakeland limited (not a sponsored or affiliate link) which is about the size of my thumb. Different shapes and sizes may take a different time to bake

  • Fresh out the oven, the biscuits will feel like a firm dough but once they've completely cooled they'll be hard and crispy when snapped in half

  • Allow them to cool completely before storing (moisture = mould). These will keep for 3 weeks in an airtight container

  • Can also be frozen (dough or cooked biscuits)
