Peanut Butter Dog Treats

This recipe makes my heart soar.  Ever since we adopted Chewie 2 years ago, we have spoiled him to pieces with toys, treats, and lots of hugs.  Recently, I decided to tackle the task of making Chewie his very own dog treats.  I know he loves having bananas and peanut butter in his Kongs, so I wanted to make a treat that he loves, and I know is good for him.

For this task, I figured the fewer ingredients the better.  Also for a healthier option, I decided to use oats instead of flour to make these biscuits.  I also decided to make these super simple and easy, a true one-bowl (or one food processor) recipe to make prep and cleanup a breeze.

Peanut Butter Dog Treats

  • Servings: 24 cookies
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  In a food processor, pulse oats until it resemble fine crumbs.  Take out about 1/3 cup of ground oats and set aside.  Add banana and peanut butter into food processor.  Pulse until combined and has the consistency of cookie dough.
  2. Sprinkle 1/3 cup oats on work surface.  Roll out dough until it is around 1/4″ thick. Use any cookie cutter to cut out shapes.  Place on Silpat or parchment paper.  Bake in preheated oven for 20-30 minutes, or until mostly dried to the touch.  It will continue to harden as it cools.
