-W.R Purche

Raise your hand if you celebrated mothers day & you only have fur babies? THIS GIRL definitely did!

I am the proud mom of 2 insanely hyper dogs that love to stare at me 24/7, love to give me endless kisses and still follow me even if I only move from the couch to the kitchen. Thats love people, thats love.

In honor of (puppy) Mother’s Day, I treated my pups with the easiest homemade dog treat you will ever make: Oatmeal Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Treats!

They take all of 5 minutes to prep & your dogs won’t be able to get enough of them. I seriously couldn’t get Charlie to stop following me for 45 minutes after I let them have these treats the other night, he was OBSESSED!

Grind the oatmeal up however long you want. You can make it very fine like a powder or leave it a little chunky, its completely up to you!

BAKING TIP: Make sure you allow the oatmeal peanut butter & banana to combine well before removing it from the food processor. It will need to pulse for at least a minute before entirely fusing.

I had a large dog treat shaped cookie cutter so my recipe only yielded 12 treats, you may have more depending on your cutter size.

  • These look so good. My pup is going to love them. I’m glad you mentioned about making sure the ingredients have time to fuse together in the food processor before removing them because previously I made dog treats and they were too dry and fell apart so I didn’t bother with that recipe again. I’m going to make these on the weekend.


  • Best, easiest and most important- healthy dog treats! I added a little bit ground flax seex too. My husband and I tried them as well, they are delish!!!


  • Love knowing what my Yoda is eating. He loves them and quick to make. I use Smuckers creamy natural peanut butter it has only peanuts and one percent or less of salt.


  • I was looking at different recipes & settled on this recipe, with the exception of adding about a teaspoon of coconut oil & a teaspoon of honey, which I saw added I some other recipes, but didn’t want to make such a big batch. It was as if my puppy knew these treats were his! He loves them! They were so easy to make, too. Thank you! You’ve made my pup very happy!

    • I/m making these now and think I will add the tsp of coconut oil and some honey! I may make a double batch….I have two huskies and the person I used to buy my healthy treats from has stopped selling….so, I have to come up with my own. If they turn out good I will freeze the second batch since the instructions say they only last for 3 to 5 days.

  • Could you make these in a blender or stand mixer to make a larger batch? They are in the oven now, but 12 won’t last long with 3 dogs.


  • I already had ground oats, so I just smashed it all together by hand. I then just rolled balls and smashed them with a fork, like old fashioned peanut butter cookies. They came out great! My dog loves them. Thanks!


  • These were so easy to make and I need easy and fast when three pairs of eyes are watching my every move. Awww but so easy to please! I didnt have any bananas, so I used applesauce instead, no doggie bone cutters, so I used a candy cane cutter but they didn’t mind. In fact, I don’t think they stopped to look before gulping them down! So yes, I tried this recipe. I mean I ate a couple, gotta test them first you know. Yummy! Haha!
    I hereby give it all the stars I can reach for.

    • When I first started making them for recipe testing, I didn’t use a processor. I just left the oatmeal whole and mixed it all by hand!


  • Sooo good! I am just learning bake and I Thought these were cute so I thought I would give them a try. My lil puppy loved em and in fact so did my parents! Ty!

  • We love these treats! I make and freeze them and use for a frozen treat. Our dog loves them. Or crumble on top of his food when he gets finicky works every time. So thank you for the recipe.

  • Just made these for my miniature poodle and he loves them. I don’t like rolling cookies out so I just hand rolled them I’m little ball and pressed them with a fork as you would peanut butter cookies for people. It worked out well. Thanks for sharing.

  • These are great. The dough is extremely sticky but otherwise they are easy to make. I am going to try not to eat them all and leave some for the dog.


  • Easy and can’t wait for my 3 to try them! I had toleave them in longer for they still felt in theit raw state. Thought they would dry up more but thet didnt. Fillowed the recipe to a tee. Please advise.

  • Made these great treats today. I have Cairn Terrierists who obey by food. So I made them smaller and will freeze some. My yield was 4+ dozen. I need that many!! Thank you for the recipe!!`

  • Hi,
    I would like to thanks for the efforts you have put in writing this blog. I’m hoping the same high-grade website post from you in the upcoming as well. In fact your creative writing abilities have inspired me to get my own blog now. Really the blogging is spreading its wings rapidly. Your write up is a great example of it.
    Regards

  • My dog won’t eat banana! But I need something to help the dough be smoother? Maybe coconut oil? I don’t know what to use as he’s on a sugar free diet…. health reasons

  • Hi,

    I love the recipe! And my pups love it too! I was just wondering if the treats are suppose to be a little soft in the middle after baking it? If I bake it any longer it gets quite burnt.

    Thanks for the recipe! Love how easy and healthy it is =)


  • I’ve been making homemade treats for my dogs, and for friends with dogs, for several years now, I usually use peanut butter blueberries and pumpkin. I cant wait for them to try this recipe…my babies are going to be very happy today, I haven’t even started baking yet, and they know something good is coming…thanks for sharing…🥜🍌🎃🐕🤗
