Nutritionist’s advice: Peanut butter can be a very healthy treat for dogs but you MUST choose a dog-friendly peanut butter. This means it shouldn’t contain any added sugars, oils, preservatives, flavourings, and absolutely NO xylitol (artificial sweetener). Read the label carefully before you add the peanut butter into the mix.

3 ingredient recipe for dog treats

This recipe is super simple and quick to make! The best part is, it’s natural and super healthy. It’s a tasty treat for humans too! So without further ado, here’s everything you need to know:

Ingredients

  • 190 grams uncooked oatmeal
  • 1 large banana
  • 110 grams natural peanut butter (no added sugars, oils, preservatives, flavouring, and NO xylitol)!

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Using a food processor or blender, grind the oatmeal until it’s powder.
  3. In a bowl, mash the banana and mix it with the peanut butter until smooth. 
  4. Reserve about a tablespoon of powdered oatmeal and pour the rest into the banana/peanut butter mixture. Mix all the ingredients together.
  5. Dust your surface with the reserved powdered oatmeal and roll your dough to about half a cm thick.
  6. Cut into desired shapes and place on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake biscuits for approximately 15 minutes, or until the edges start to darken.
  8. Cool completely before feeding!

You can store these peanut butter/banana biscuits in a dog treat jar, but if you want to make them last longer, you can also store them in a fridge or freezer. This way, you can make a large batch and make it last for weeks or even months!
