Spending more time at home, many of us have turned our ovens on and found a new love in baking. Why not take this time to bake some delicious treats for our favorite four-legged friends? To make it even easier for you, our team at Wagsworth Manor Pet Resort put together our favorite, easy-to-make recipes to bake your pup something special.  A healthy treat they’re sure to love. So, preheat your ovens and get baking! Make sure you send us a picture of your pup enjoying their new favorite treat!


Quick & Easy Peanut Butter Dog Treats

2 cups flour
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter*
2 eggs
1/4 cup water
You can use other kinds of peanut butter such as chunky, but if you do you’ll probably need to add more water to the mixture in order to make it into workable dough.

Preheat your oven to 350 F.
Mix together your flour, peanut butter & eggs in a large bowl until slightly combined.
Add in a little bit of water (approximately one Tbsp at a time) until the mixture becomes wet enough to roll out as dough.
Roll out your dough & cut out your favorite shapes with some cookie cutters.
Place your treats onto your baking sheet & cook for about 15 minutes. For a little bit of crunch I like to take mine out once the bottoms start to darken.

Apple Cinnamon Dog Treats

1 cup Dry Quick Cook Oatmeal
½ cup Cinnamon Apple Sauce or Apple Sauce with s dash of Cinnamon Added
1 large Egg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In large clean but dry mixing bowl pour the cup of oatmeal. Add the applesauce and mix well. Once everything is mixed together add the egg and mix again.

If you want to get fancy or happen to have either whoopie cake molds or mini bunt pans you can spoon the mixture into the pan. If you just have the basics use a cookie sheet (that’s the thin metal baking sheet). Grease the pan or tray with oil – as long as your pet doesn’t have any allergies the only oil you should stay away from is grapeseed oil.

Scoop the mix into the molds or create big drop cookies using a tablespoon.
Once the oven is to temperature place the tray or pan in the oven for 22 minutes. Make sure to set he kitchen timer and not rely on watching the time. You will likely have a dog sitting in front of the oven making sure you remember but the telephone will ring or you will get an important email and completely forget about the oven.
The cookies should just pop right out of the pan or slide off of the tray immediately so you can allow to cool. Since your dog is likely begging by this point as soon as the cookies are body temperature you can allow your dog to have a bite or two.


Apple Carrot Treats:

1 cup of whole wheat flour, brown rice flour, or gluten free flour
1 cup of grated carrots
1 egg
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce



Preheat oven 350°F.
Mix ingredients together until dough forms.
Roll dough into small balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Press dough down slightly so the biscuits are about 1/4-inch-thick.
Bake until golden brown and let cool on a wire rack.
