Homemade All Natural, High Oleic, High Polyphenol Olive Oil Dog Biscuits

Olive Oil Peanut Butter Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups roasted, unsalted peanuts
  • ½ tsp. salt (optional)
  • 1 Tbs. granulated sugar (optional)
  • ¼ cup High Oleic, High Polyphenol Organic Picual, Frantoio or Leccino Extra Virgin Olive Oils


Place the peanuts in the jar of your blender. Add the salt and sugar if using. Pour the olive oil over the peanuts and wait 30 seconds until the oil flows to the bottom of the jar. Turn the blender on high. Process until the desired level of creaminess or up to two minutes for super creamy peanut butter. It may be necessary to turn off the blender a few times and scrape down the sides of the blender jar. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks.

High Polyphenol Olive Oil Dog Biscuits      

This recipe was adapted from King Arthur Flour's Dog Biscuit recipe which contains wheat, and no extra virgin olive oil. I've modified it to contain olive oil, mostly organic ingredients and no wheat products. High quality extra virgin olive oil is extremely beneficial for overall canine health including coat, skin and joint wellness. My dog Luna loves these healthy treats!

  • 1 cup organic rolled oats
  • 2 cups rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon organic mint, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 large organic eggs
  • 1 cup organic, high-oleic, high polyphenol olive oil peanut butter, made with Organic Leccino, Frantoio or Picual - (either chunky or smooth)
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon cold water, or enough to make the dough come together
Make the olive oil peanut butter using the recipe above . Preheat the oven to 300°F. Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets, or line them with parchment. Mix together the rice flour, oats, mint, dried milk, and sea salt. Add the eggs and peanut butter, stirring to combine; the mixture will be crumbly. Add enough water to bring the dough together. To make biscuits using a dog-bone cutter, roll the dough about 1/4" thick, and cut with a 3 1/2" cutter (or the size of your choice). Gather and re-roll the scraps, and continue to cut biscuits until you've used all the dough. To make dog cookies, drop the dough in walnut-sized balls onto the prepared baking sheets. Flatten them to about 1/4". Bake the biscuits for about 40 to 60 minutes, baking the smaller cookies for a shorter amount of time. When finished, the biscuits will be dark golden brown, and will be dry and crisp all the way through. Remove the biscuits from the oven, and cool right on the pans. Yield: about 42 larger (3 1/2" dog-bone) biscuits, 60 smaller (round) biscuits.
