Peanut Butter Banana Oat Dog Treats

Making dog treats at home is so easy to do! I love making treats for our dogs and knowing that the ingredients are safe and healthy for them. And, this recipe for peanut butter banana oat dog treats comes together really quick. Amazing that only 4 simple, every day ingredients are used to make these. No eggs are used in this recipe, you use a ripened mashed banana, peanut butter, oats, and flour. 

Bananas for dogs: Bananas are full of potassium which is a great way to help refuel them after a nice walk. Bananas are very helpful in your pups digestive tract too. 

Peanut Butter for dogs: Most dogs love peanut butter. The addition of peanut butter will give them a nice little protein pick-me-up. 

Oats for dogs: Oats are an all around health boost for our dogs. Great way to soothe skin from the inside out. 

With all the health benefits in each ingredient you can feel assured that your special pup will have a tasty and healthy treat! Made right in your own kitchen with lots of love.

Here’s how I made peanut butter banana oat dog treats:

I mashed a ripe banana and mixed in the peanut butter. Once the mixture is smooth – I stirred in the oats and flour. Stirring until a dough forms. The dough should be soft and easy to work with. (If it’s a humid day, you may need to add a little more flour.) I kneaded the dough to make sure all the flour has been incorporated. 

Once the dough is ready, I flour the counter and roll it out with a rolling pin. I rolled the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. I used 1 1/2 inch dog bone cutter to cut out the treats. I placed the dog treats onto a large baking sheet with a non-stick silicone baking mat. I brushed the treats with a little water and sprinkled them with oats. I baked them in a preheated oven of 350 F degrees for 40 minutes. Once the 40 minutes are up, I turned off the oven and kept the baking sheet in the oven to cool. Once the treats have cooled you can give to your dog. 

* REMEMBER to allow the dog treats to cool completely before giving to your dog.

Step Two: Combine the mashed banana and peanut butter, mix until smooth. Stir in the oats and flour. Stir until a dough forms. The dough should be soft and easy to work with.

Step Three: Flour your counter and place dough on floured surface. Lightly sprinkle flour on top of dough, and rub flour on to the rolling pin. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness (start off with gentle rolling motions to keep the dough even). Use desired cutter to cut out shapes (you can use a small shot glass or drinking glass). Place the cut out treats onto the lined baking sheet. OPTIONAL: Lightly brush the tops of dog treats with water and sprinkle oats over the tops before baking.

      Hi Marsha – That’s great! I hope Kiba likes them as mush as our dogs did!

    Hi Vanessa! My housemate recently found a very young puppy and I’ve been giving him about a teaspoon of peanut butter. I’m sure he’ll love these chewy and beneficial treats!

    Just tried these….Lucky doesn’t like plain peanut butter, but approved of these!
    I adjusted the recipe a bit: I can’t eat wheat, so I used brown rice flour since I had it in the house, & I used a bit less flour and added a few tbsp ground flax.
    Also, I found 40min a little too long. I turned my oven down to 200 at about 25min for the remainder of the cooking time as they were turning a little too brown (I probably rolled the dough out a little thin :)
    Thanks so much for posting your fabulous dog recipes…we are going to try the bacon ones next!

      Hi Sarah!

      I’m so glad that your dog, Lucky, enjoyed the treats! I also love that you adapted them to what you had in the house. Thank you for reporting back! I’m sure that someone else may be in the same dietary situation as you, and may wonder about using the brown rice flour. Adding ground flax is a great idea!

      If the dough is rolled too thin they will bake faster and won’t need to be in the oven as long. Good job keeping an eye on them! Every oven is different and some ovens are hotter than others. Glad it worked out for you! :-)

      Happy Baking!

      By the way, the homemade bacon dog treats are my go-to dog treats to make. The dough is awesome to work with (that bacon grease is magical).
