Easy 3 Ingredient Dog Treats 

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 dog treat with only 3 ingredients that are usually in your house already.

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).


Ingredients:

  • 1-1 1/2 c. oats
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter
  • 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.


Yields around 12-20 depending on shape and actual thickness.

Make your own? I would love to see photos and hear how yours turn out.
