These biscuits would also make a great gift for a friend or family member’s dog. It’s easy to match them to the season by changing the biscuit cutter you use. Or you can just stick to the classic bone shape, which I always find myself gravitating back to. 
Although recommended as a special treat for your dog, some of my human friends have enjoyed these too!
You can change the flours used depending on what you have in your cupboard, or your dog’s own dietary needs or preferences. 

I’ve chosen to use some coconut flour in this recipe as EB loves coconut and it has some anti-inflammatory properties. However, after some experimenting, I discovered that biscuits using only coconut flour don’t bind together sufficiently, so I’ve mixed in some rice flour too.

I’ve used crunchy peanut butter in this recipe as that’s what I had in the cupboard, however smooth would work just as well.

The only thing to watch out for are the other ingredients in your peanut butter. It’s common for salt and sweeteners to be added, the first best avoided and the second potentially toxic to dogs.

For this reason I like to play it safe with peanut butter made from 100% peanuts like Meridian.


1 cup coconut flour
1 ½ cups rice flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup peanut butter *
1 cup water
2 tbsp honey
1 egg

* NOTE: It is important to check the peanut butter ingredients to make sure that it does not contain any sweeteners such as xylitol, also known as birch sugar, as this is toxic to dogs. It's best to use peanut butter that's 100% peanut such as Meridian’s.


  • Preheat oven to 180C
  • Combine dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl
  • Add wet ingredients and mix together to form a dough. The dough is quite crumbly but will come together enough to roll out.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to ¼ “ thickness and cut into desired shapes. 
  • Place the shapes onto a lined baking tray and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until just starting to brown.
  • Leave on a wire rack to cool before treating your pup!
