Three Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipes Your Puppy Will Love



three easy to make peanut butter dog treat recipes your pup will

There is nothing better than homemade treats, especially during holidays! Make a batch for your dog! You can be sure your dog will enjoy all the natural ingredients and have lots of tail wags. These treats can be purchased at your local grocery store with simple ingredients that are often less expensive than buying store-bought treats. 

These are three easy recipes that your dog will love. All three recipes contain peanut butter, which is a very special ingredient. 

Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Dog Treats 

Let your pup in on the holiday season with a festive snack made just for them. These savory and healthy treats will have your pup begging for more. 


  • 1 cup oats (old fashioned, 1-minute oats, or instant), add more if needed for a larger batch 
  • ⅓ cup pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling) 
  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter 
    • Use a peanut butter that is natural. no xylitol This is extremely toxic for dogs. 


  1. Preheat oven to 300F (150C). Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet. 
  2. Place the oats into a food processor. Blend until you get a fine powder. Blend the pumpkin, peanut butter, and oats until you have a sticky dough. This will look like Playdough. 
  3. Remove the food processor from the bowl and then roll it out on a floured surface. You can use whole wheat flour or more ground oats. Or any other flour that is available. Cut out cookies using a small cookie cutter of any shape, or simply cut into squares with a knife. You can make as many as 50 treats per dog with this recipe. 
  4. Lay treats on the baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the treats are dry and hard. For larger treats, the baking time will be longer. Let cool before rewarding your pup with a fall treat! 
  5. Place in an airtight bag. 

Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats 

These tasty treats are made with natural ingredients and packed full of flavor. Your dog will love them! 


  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned gluten-free rolled oats 
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter 
    • Use a peanut butter that is natural. no xylitol This is extremely toxic for dogs. 
  • 1 large ripe banana (or 2 medium bananas), smashed 


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet. 
  2. Blitz the old fashioned rolled oats in a blender until you have a fine flour, or simply use oat flour instead. This oat flour can be saved for later. 
  3. Combine the peanut butter with the ripe banana in a large bowl. Add the oat flour. Use a fork to mix the dough until it is well-combined. Add 2-4 tablespoons peanut butter to make it crumbly. Mix again and recombine. You want the dough to be firm, sticky, and pliable – like Playdough. 
  4. Roll the dough into a thin rectangle, approximately 1/4 inch thick. Cut into shapes with a cookie cutter or with a simple knife. You can also roll them into 1 tablespoon balls and flatten with your hands for a simple circular cookie. 
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly brown underneath. Allow the treats to cool for 10-15 minutes before enjoying or sharing with your pup! 
  6. These cookies can be kept fresh for up to two weeks in an airtight container stored in the refrigerator.

Honey Oat Peanut Butter No Bake Dog Treats 

Not only are these treats delicious, but they are also incredibly simple to make! Invite the kids to help make dog treats for your furry family member. They can be hands on from the time of mixing the ingredients all the way to feeding them to the family dog. The best thing is that they can eat them too! 


  • 1 cup oats 
  • Peanut butter 1/2 cup 
  • 1/3 cup honey 
  • 1/3 cup peanuts 
    • Use a peanut butter that is natural. no xylitol This is extremely toxic for dogs.


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. 
  2. For half an hour, chill.  
  3. Once chilled use a scooper or a spoon to collect a small handful of dough.  
  4. Divide into 1-inch balls. From this point, you can either choose to chill a bit longer or enjoy immediately. 
  5. Store your extra treats in the fridge! 

Please remember that not all dogs will enjoy the same foods. If your dog has a food allergy, please be considerate and speak with your veterinarian before making a treat your dog may not be able to easily digest.
