Are you the type of person who loves treating your dog but knows how expensive it can get? Well, you can make delicious treats at home without having to break the bank! This dog cookie recipe is just one of the many treats the dogs at The Paw Institute love and it’s no wonder why!

These homemade dog treats are perfect for snack time, training and just to have a little treat now and again. If you want you can top them off with peanut butter as well, melt it a little and then drizzle it over. However, these are much more difficult to store.

Keep these in an air-tight container and use them up within 2 weeks, if they last that long.

Peanut Butter Dog Treats Recipe Ingredients

This recipe is full of healthy ingredients that are healthy for your dog. However, we always stress to check the ingredients on any of the products you use to make sure they don’t have anything in them that may harm your dog.

  • Dog Safe Peanut Butter: Yes, dog-safe peanut butter can be a tasty and nutritious treat for dogs. It’s a good source of protein and healthy fats. However, it’s important to ensure that the peanut butter does not contain xylitol, a sugar substitute that is toxic to dogs. Always check the ingredients list to make sure it’s safe for your furry friend. Additionally, peanut butter should be given to dogs in moderation as part of a balanced diet, as excessive consumption can lead to weight gain. This is the one we use.
  • Oats: Yes, oats can be a nutritious addition to a dog’s diet when served in moderation and cooked plain. Oats are rich in fibre, vitamins, and minerals, which can help support digestive health and provide energy for your dog. They are also a good source of carbohydrates that can be beneficial for dogs, especially those with sensitive stomachs or allergies to other grains. However, it’s essential to prepare oats properly for your dog. Avoid adding sugar, salt, or any other additives that may be harmful to your pet. Cooked plain oats or oatmeal are the best options for dogs. You can serve them plain or mix them with your dog’s regular food for added nutrition and variety. You can also buy oat flour but we prefer to buy oats and blitz them up for this recipe.
  • Bananas: Bananas can be a healthy and tasty treat for dogs when given in moderation. Bananas are rich in potassium, fibre, and vitamins like vitamin C and vitamin B6, which can provide several health benefits for dogs.

Here are some reasons why bananas can be good for dogs:

  1. Rich in Potassium: Potassium is essential for maintaining proper heart function, muscle function, and nerve signals in dogs.
  2. Good Source of Fibre: The fibre in bananas can aid digestion and help regulate bowel movements in dogs.
  3. Vitamins and Antioxidants: Bananas contain vitamins like vitamin C and vitamin B6, as well as antioxidants, which can support overall health and boost the immune system.
  4. Low in Calories: Bananas are relatively low in calories, making them a healthy alternative to high-calorie treats for dogs.

Dog Baking Equipment

If you’re looking to make your own homemade dog treats, then you’ll need some exciting equipment. We would always suggest silicone over metal as metal can rust and parts of it can get into the treats and make dogs unwell. Silicone is much easier to use, the mould’s durable material makes it easy to get the treats out of and they look cute.

If you’re looking to make your own homemade dog bone biscuits then you should get this dog bone silicone baking mould. They are super affordable, easy to use and just the right size for small and medium dogs. The paw print moulds that come with them are perfect for medium and larger dogs.

Air Tight Containers: If you’re looking to store these delicious homemade dog biscuits, we recommend making sure you have some air-tight containers to keep them in. Make sure you keep them out of the sun as you wouldn’t want them to get wet and soggy due to condensation.

Homemade Dog Treats

Making homemade dog treats is a great way to cut costs and make sure you know exactly what your dog is getting. You’re also able to ensure that your dog is getting all the nutrients that they need and that they’re getting their favourite food. There’s nothing worse than getting your dog treats from the shop and they not liking them.

These treats are super easy to make and best of all you can make sure your furry loved one is there to quality control. There’s nothing that they can’t eat in this recipe and the ingredients will help them, banana especially. Just don’t give them too many of these homemade dog biscuits!
