Festive Dog Biscuits
Everyone deserves a treat from Santa Paws this festive season, including our four legged friends! This super simple recipe makes around 15 dog biscuits (using a 10cm cookie cutter), and are the perfect Christmas treat for your dog!
- 150g plain or wholemeal flour
- 80g xylitol-free peanut butter*
- 1 banana
- 4 tablespoons hot water
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
*Check the ingredients of your peanut butter – xylitol is toxic to dogs.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
- Preheat your oven to 170°C. Mix together the xylitol-free peanut butter and hot water in a bowl.
- Add the banana to the bowl and mash with a fork until most lumps have gone.
- Add the flour and cinnamon to the bowl and use your hands to form a dough. The texture should be quite firm and sticky.
- Lightly flour your work surface and roll out the dough to about 1cm thick.
- Cut out into your favourite Christmassy shapes and place on a lined baking tray.
- Bake at 170°C for around 15 minutes or until golden brown. Once cooked, leave to cool completely before your dog does the taste test!

A friendly reminder that this recipe is intended as occasional treats for your dog, and should be fed in small amounts alongside a well-balanced diet.
