Dog Licks dog-friendly cookies dry ingridients

  • 2 1/2 cups flour (I used plain white but have also tried rice and whole wheat)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons of cooked pumpkin (I used unsweetened 100% natural canned this time for convenience but usually bake my own) other options include bananas, parsley, etcDog Licks dog-friendly cookies optional ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, honey, or sugar- you can add more if making for kids and sugar gives a firmer dough and familiar sugar cookie taste.
  • 1 egg

  • 2 washed strawberries
  • 3 washed blueberries
  • Peanut butter



  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, and the egg in a bowl.Dog Licks dog-friendly cookies bowl
  3. Add pumpkin, peanut butter, water, and sugar and stir until you have a firm dough.  You may need to adjust water and flour slightly so holds together smoothly but not too sticky to touch and put flour on your hands then knead it into a ball. If too liquidy like in the bowl below, add more flour until firm. Chill dough in the fridge to firm if necessary (10 minutes). Dog Licks dog-friendly cookies batter
