Watch how to make this recipe

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Spray a heavy baking sheet with vegetable oil cooking spray or line with a silicon baking mat. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats and baking powder. Stir in the broth and peanut butter until the mixture forms a crumbly dough. Press the dough together to form a ball.

On a lightly floured work surface, knead the dough for 30 seconds until smooth. Roll out the dough into a 10-inch circle, about 1/2-inch thick. Using a bone-shape cookie cutter, cut out bones and place on the prepared baking sheet (any scraps of dough can be formed into a ball and re-rolled). Sprinkle with the Parmesan.

Bake until light golden, 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

I loved the idea of making homemade dog treats. These were fun to make with the different shapes on the cookie cutters. My dog loved them and I shared them with my dog friends and they loved them too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Can I make these ahead of time and freeze them until I need them? item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so easy and my golden loves them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were super easy and my dog loves them. Cheaper and healthier than the kind you get at the store. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made these today for my 4 dachshunds. They loved them. I didn't use a dog bone cookie cutter, I just cut them in little squares since that's the preferred size for my dogs. Easy to make and I like knowing what goes in to what my dogs eat. I plan on making more and putting them in the freezer so I don't waste the chicken broth. Hope they hold up in the freezer. Going to share this recipe and I'd love to see more on here. Thanks Giada. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made them for X-Mas gifts, the Fur Friends that recieved them were begging for more!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these as a Christmas present for all the dogs in our extended family. They loved them! They loved them so much I had to tell the kids to stop giving the dogs so many in one day. I wasn't aware of a problem with chicken broth for dogs. I make a lot of my own stock so I will use that next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. I used brown rice flour and did a coarse grind on the oats. I also used plan turkey broth and 4 tablespoons unsweetened apple sauce. Mine yielded 20 treats. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were a huge hit! I followed the recipe to the letter & these turned out great - my 2 dogs cannot get enough of them. I love that I'm giving them wholesome ingredients - all I smelled while mixing/baking was peanut butter & oats. I baked for exactly 20 mins & the cookies come out fairly soft, not hard or crispy so both dogs went insane for these. I used a bone cookie cutter, a paw print & a dog outline. The latter two were big, will stick with the bone next time. Great recipe. Making more tomorrow for my spoiled babies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't mean to sound stupid, but I've never made dog treats before. Can regular flour be used in place of wheat flour or is that bad for the pups? I'd love to try making these they sound super great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for my two dogs. For those concerned about the chicken broth, don't be. My husky has horrible food allergies, including most commercial cookies. This is the one thing he's eaten that hasn't made him sick. Both dogs wait by the cookie jar for more. I am making them for all the family dogs we have for Christmas. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were really fun and cute to make, but after making them I'm concerned. I used commercial chicken broth. Is this bad? My dog has eaten only 2 small ones, but I have a ton left. Could 1 cup of broth be dangerous? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Making this tonight....Is the tablespoon of baking powder correct? Seems like a lot for the other ingredients? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Once again, a great recipe from Giada. We have two pooches--a maltese, who eats everything, and a shih tzu, who is finicky and eats nothing. Both dogs loved these treats! They were easy to make and the 20 min cook time provided a slightly chewy not crunchy texture that makes it easier for my older dog to eat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made these as puppy stocking stuffers. Super easy to make! Two paws up. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for my Westie and she went bonkers for them. They were so very easy to make and very simple to roll out and cut. I used 3 sizes of bone cutters. Very wonderful dough to work with. Thank you Giada for the recipe. Molly the Westie thanks you as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good recipe. I recommend use of coconut flour for this recipe in lieu of whole wheat flour, as it has some incredible nutritional benefits. And tastes great for human consumption too, should I run out of my own food in the house. :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very Easy to make. I have 3 picky dogs and they loved these. I had everything on hand except the cheese, so that didn't get added. Will definately make these again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Can't wait to make these for my dog and other dogs in the family - none have food allergies plus I use organic ingredients. So excited! Thanks Giada! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thumbs up to hppykntr. Not all are allergic to wheat flour, since my dog has been eating this flour for a long time in his treats. Great recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Can't wait to try this. Some of the treats are going to our pastors dog, and some to our next door neighbors dog. As for TKAllisons concerns about allergies everybody is allergic to something & it can drive you crazy, so just ask before you give ( or show it) to the dog. Simple. Merry Christmas to all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was so excited to see that Giada was doing a recipe for dog cookies. Unfortunately, she didn't seem to do any research on what is appropriate to give to dogs. In some breeds, whole wheat can cause allergies such as skin irritation and ear infections. Anything but homemade Chicken broth can be toxic as well because of the spices used in making commercial chicken broth; onion and garlic are toxic to dogs. I hope that readers that are making these treats will make changes to suit their dogs. Would recommend using rice flour or even making flour from whole oats. Would also recommend that users make homemade chicken stock with no spices. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Giada, I Love this recipe. My Yorkie does too. Love your show. I do have comments about the Thanksgiving Special. Happy Holidays to you and your family, "Food Network" (Bobby, Alton, Ina, All the Iron Chefs, Simon and Mario, all of you very talented people). I would enjoy more of your cooking together . Without the drama that I saw on the Thanksgiving special. "if I wanted to see food thrown at people I would go to the High school around the corner" Karen item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'll be checking back to see what others say. I honestly don't know. This is my first time making homemade dog treats. I can tell you that it was really easy to make these & I found a small bag of whole wheat flour at my grocery store. My 2 dogs LOVED them. We made them Christmas Eve & by Christmas night they are gone. Will make them some more before New Years. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The wheat flour is healthier and some dogs have allergies to white flour. I see someone on here used brown rice flour. Not sure they would bake up the same with white flour. And you don't sound stupid. I think it was a valid question. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's correct. Since my baking powder can opening was too small for easy measuring using a tablespoon, I used 3 teaspoons - same equivalent. Mine turned out great & are long gone already. Making more tomorrow. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought the tablespoon of baking powder was wrong too. I read it several times just to make sure. It does seem like a lot. Not sure why it takes so much. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tkallinson- As a dog owner, you should know what your dogs are and aren't allergic to; therefore, it is also the dog owner's responsibility to alter any "treat" recipes to accommodate the dog's necessities. Just like the recipes Giada makes using peanuts or strawberries, 2 foods high on the allergy list. You don't use those ingredients, you chose alternate ones if you are allergic. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks for the advise on allergies for dogs. It can't hurt to be careful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
FYI, all the dogs in our family ate these with no after affects. I feel this recipe deserves more than one star. At least Giada is thinking on our pets. I like that. item not reviewed by moderator and published
