Peanut Butter Dog Treats are the perfect, wholesome homemade treat for your dog! Made with only four ingredients, these dog cookies are simple to make and loved by canines of all shapes and sizes.
My entire family has a soft spot for our Boston Terrier, Bailey.
From extra long snuggles to daily walks, to a cushy dog bed, to homemade dog treats--this is one puppy that lives a good life.
Our dog has always had a bit of a sensitive stomach, as many dogs (and humans) do. She is on a gluten-free, corn-free, dairy-free diet--which may sound horrible, but trust me, Bailey does not seem to be suffering.
Especially given that we make Homemade Dog Treats, or as my kids call them Dog Cookies, on a regular basis.
Ingredients for Homemade Dog Treats
These simple dog treats are made with just oats, banana, peanut butter, and egg--which are ingredients that are known to not only be safe for dogs to consume but actually good for them as well.
Plus these staple ingredients are ones we always have on hand and these peanut butter dog treats come together in minutes. So no excuse NOT to spoil our dog with homemade treats.
How to Make Homemade Dog Treats
- Mash the banana with the egg and peanut butter.
- Mix in the oats.
- Scoop 1 tablespoon batter out onto baking sheet, lined with silmat or parchment paper.
- Flatten slightly with a fork, like traditional peanut butter cookies.
- Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
- Let cookies cool completely on a wire rack.
- Store dog cookies in an airtight container for 5 days, or in the fridge for 7 days.

I added about 1/4 shredded carrots and they turned out great! My friend has an elderly dog that needed soft treats, but my puppy loves them too!
What a great idea! So happy your puppy loves them!!
Hi so sometimes I am out of bananas and I was wondering what can be a replacement for the bananas in this recipe
You can use 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce.
Ok thank you this was one of the best dog treats like as soon as I grab the bag my dogs come running lol
Wonderful! Love hearing you pups enjoyed
Just made these for my pups and they absolutely loved them. Super easy recipe! Thank you.
You bet! So happy to hear your pup enjoyed them!

I used to make these for Finn. Drool city when I went for the box. I did taste them for quality control.
My goldendoodle loved these. And they were so easy to make. Thank you!
Awesome! Thanks for sharing!
can these treats be frozen?
Yes! Once cooled, store them in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Just defrost fully before serinvg so not too hard for your pup!
Easy to make and shape with a cookie cutter too!
I love that these are healthy for my Lola girl, my daughter loved making them and Lola loved eating them! Thank you...absolutely amazing 😍
Does it have to be an overripe banana, or would a regular ripe one work?
As long as it is ripe enough to smash easily, it will be perfect!
