3 Ingredient Dog Treats DIY

Share

Ever since I found out my dog has certain food allergies I totally love making my own treats. I have 3 dogs who are constantly spoiled and getting lots of treats so I’m always buying them but love making them as well.¬†This is a super easy DIY 3 ingredient dog treats you can make and you most likely already have these ingredients in your house.

My dogs love, I mean LOVE peanut butter. They go crazy for it. They are also always trying to get to my bananas so I thought I should totally make them some treats.

The first thing I did was take some oats (original/plain oatmeal) and ground it up. I used a blender but you can use a food processor as well. Next you beat the banana (large) and peanut butter in a bowl until smooth. I left the banana with a few chunks in it but they definitely are better if completely smooth.

Then you need to roll out the dough so you can use cookie cutters to put them on a tray to bake. I decided to use silicone moulds as they are simply easier to keep the treat whole (I also didn’t have any cute dog related cookie cutters).

  • 1 large banana

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350*F
  2. Grind your oats to a powder using a blender or food processor
  3. In a bowl, beat the banana and peanut butter until smooth. The dough should then stick together without being super sticky.
  4. Sprinkle the powdered oats on your counter/workspace. Keep the dough about 1/4 thick once rolled out.
  5. Cut the dough to your desired shapes. I used a silicone mold shaped to paw prints
  6. Place the dough onto parchment paper which is on your baking pan.
  7. Bake the treats for about 13-16 minutes or until the edges start to turn a golden brown.
  8. Cool completely prior to placing them into an airtight container.

  1. These are adorable! I started cooking for my dogs when my golden had serious allergies. Sadly after 13 years he’s no longer with us. I still do enjoy cooking for my lab and husky. Can’t wait to try these!

    1. I do actually have some for cats! Peanut butter isn’t the best for cats because too much can cause them to vomit. I’ll totally do a blog post for cat treats soon. I make them as well.
