These easy baked peanut butter banana dog treats are a tasty wheat free snack made with a few ingredients. There's something about the flavour combination of banana and peanut butter my dogs love.
With no additives, these healthy homemade dog treats smell good enough to munch yourself!
These banana dog treats are chewy and dense in texture due to the fiber of the ingredients used. A square should last about 3 to 4 chews in our house!
We used a combination of rice flour and rolled oats for the "flour" element of these banana peanut butter treats but they can be substituted with just one dog friendly flour.
- Bananas - Choose ripe and soft bananas. They are a great source of potassium, vitamin B, fibre and low in calories.
- Eggs - A source of protein and vitamins.
- Rolled Oats - A source of fiber, vitamin B6 and iron.
- Rice Flour - A gluten free flour that can be substituted with another dog friendly flour.
- Peanut Butter - use natural 100% or check the ingredients carefully as a few brands may contain xylitol which is toxic for dogs.
Remember to go slowly when introducing new foods. And we recommend checking with your veterinarian first if your dog has any digestive issues or other health concerns.
How to make peanut butter banana dog treats
This is a quick and easy recipe made in one bowl. Just mix the ingredients into a dough and you are ready to bake!
We have baked these peanut butter banana dog treats into three different shapes to see how the dough worked. All worked out fine and were devoured by my happy pack.
- Bake the dough pressed out flat onto a baking sheet or in a baking tin, then cut into square.
- If the mixture is not too sticky, roll it in between 2 layers of parchment paper and cut out into cute shapes with a cookie cutter.
- Tear off pieces of the dough with clean, damp hands and shape. Then place onto a baking sheet. (Photo of this further down the page).
We used the rolled oats as is, but for a finer texture place them in a food processor for finer texture.
If you substitute the rice flour for coconut flour, the volume needs to be decreased and you may need another egg because it has a higher density and fiber content.
