Wild Wheat Dog Treat Recipe

We wanted to share a recipe that had a double dose of wheat goodness – from whole wheat flour and wheat bran. In our Wild Wheat Dog Treat Recipe, we’ve added both, along with some cornmeal, peanut butter and chicken broth. Occasionally, when a recipe calls for water, we change it to chicken or beef broth. It adds a little extra flavor our dogs love.

Wild Wheat Dog Treat Recipe

Makes about 30 cookies


1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup wheat bran

1 cup cornmeal

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

1 cup chicken broth

1/3 cup olive oil

1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix whole wheat flour, wheat bran corn flour, and cornmeal in a mixing bowl.
  3. You’ll need to melt the peanut butter, so cook in the microwave for about 60 seconds or until the peanut butter is liquefied.
  4. Pour liquefied peanut butter, chicken broth, olive oil and egg into the flour mix. Still until a moist dough forms.
  5. Roll out on a floured surface and cut into shapes with a cookie cutter. Place the treats onto the non-stick cookie sheets.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.
  7. Cool on baking racks and store in an airtight container.
