How to Make Peanut Butter Biscotti for Dogs

Making Peanut Butter Biscotti for Dogs is just like making biscotti for yourself, it’s the same exact process! So, if you have made biscotti before, then you can easily make this Peanut Butter Biscotti for Dogs. I just make the biscotti smaller than I normally would for humans, so there’s two logs instead of one.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the coconut oil and honey. Mix on low until there are no chunks of coconut oil.

Step 3

Add the peanut butter, eggs, flour, oat flour, baking soda, and sea salt in that order. Mix on low until combined into a stiff dough.

Step 4

Divide the dough into two pieces. Form each one into a 7 x 3-inch log and place on the prepared baking sheet.

Step 5

Bake for 25 minutes, until the biscotti looks set, but not completely done. Remove from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes.

Step 6

Cut each log into about 10 slices and separate them on the baking sheet. Return to the oven and bake again for 15 to 20 more minutes until the biscotti is lightly browned and crispy.

Step 7

Allow to cool completely on the baking sheets before giving to your pup! Store in a cool dry place for up to 2 weeks.

Tips for Peanut Butter Biscotti for Dogs

• Make sure to mix the coconut oil and honey completely so there are no chunks of coconut oil. This is important as it’s just like the butter in human biscotti. If you don’t mix in the coconut oil (or butter) you’ll have pockets of fat which can cause holes in the biscotti and not make it uniform once baked. This results in a less than ideal texture.

• Make sure to use peanut butter that is safe for dogs! I use the Costco Organic Peanut Butter which just has two ingredients: organic peanuts and sea salt. Contrary to what you may think, dogs do need salt, but just not a lot. So, if you’re using a salted peanut butter, that’s totally fine! And if you have unsalted, that’s okay too. But stay away from peanut butters with added ingredients, and especially xylitol. I’m assuming if you are a regular reader of my site, you are not using peanut butter with this ingredient! But xylitol is incredibly harmful and dangerous to dogs.

• If you have a smaller dog, be sure to break up the biscotti and give it to your dog in small pieces. I break off tiny bits and give it to John John. Larger dogs may be able to handle a whole biscotti or even just half. You can also crumble this and use it as a food topper for picky eaters!

• Store biscotti just like you would normal biscotti. It can be store in a cool dry place like a cookie jar!

FAQ's

Can dogs have biscotti?

While human biscotti is traditionally made with butter, sugar, and many times chocolate – it is not safe for dogs to eat! But, if you make this Peanut Butter Biscotti for Dogs then it is made with dog friendly ingredients that dogs can have! So, give your dog a really delicious and fun treat with this recipe!

How should I feed this Peanut Butter Biscotti to my dog?

While this Peanut Butter Biscotti for Dogs is a fun recipe to make and mimics human biscotti, be sure to break it up into small pieces to give to your dog! I break off tiny little pieces to give to John John (check our video below!). If you have a larger dog, you could give them larger pieces. You can also crumble up a little piece of biscotti on top of your dogs food for a fancy food topper!

Can I freeze this?

Yes, if you have a small dog (like me) your dog probably won't eat all of this right away! You can freeze half of this by putting it in a tupperware or zip bag then just thaw it whenever your dog needs more treats!

Why Organic for Your Dog?

You may be wondering why you should buy organic food for your dog. It's the same reasons that you should buy organic food for yourself. Your dog's health is important, just like yours. So, treating them right with organic ingredients will benefit their long term health.

Organic ingredients are much healthier for your dog to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients! And that counts for your pup too!
