Peanut Butter Macarons

Macarons are a meringue-based sandwich cookie usually made with almond flour, egg whites, powdered sugar, and food coloring. They are commonly filled with buttercream, ganache, or jam. Here is a dog-friendly version I think your pup will enjoy! If you wish, you can omit the peanut butter from the sandwich ingredients to create a “plain” cookie base, and change the filling ingredient to any dog-friendly spreadable food.


  • 1 1/4 cup organic whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup organic creamy peanut butter, plus additional peanut butter for “sandwich” filling
    • all-natural, no salt or sugar added, xylitol/birch sugar free
  • 1 large organic egg
  • 2 tablespoons organic honey
  • 1/2 cup organic whole milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line baking pans with parchment paper
  2. In a large bowl add flour, baking powder, peanut butter, egg, honey, and milk. Beat until ingredients are well combined – until a soft dough forms
  3. Flour your work area and roll the dough out about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep, depending on how thick you want the “sandwich”
  4. Use a small round cookie cutter or something similar (I used the mouth of a champagne flute) to cut out circles of dough
  5. Place the cut-outs on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes depending on your oven (I left mine in for 15 minutes)
  6. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool
  7. You can wait to do this next step until ready to give the macarons to your dog, or you can do this step and freeze the treats for later
    1. smear peanut butter on one of the cookies and top with another cookie to make a “sandwich”
