Peanut Butter Oaties: Make your own dog cookies
With these 5-ingredient, easy-to-make Peanut Butter Oaties, you and your pup can share cookies you whip up in less than half an hour! Dogs love cookies nearly as much as people do! With all-natural ingredients and no filler products, you can feel good about giving your dog these treats.
The Peanut Butter Oaties will have the consistency of a soft granola bar when baked. They also make great energy snacks for you when out on a hike or getting ready for a workout.
You will need:
1 ripe banana (mashed)
1 medium apple, diced
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (we used crunchy)
1 tsp cinnamon
To make your Peanut Butter Oaties:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a large baking sheet with non-stick spray.
Add the oats, diced apple, and cinnamon to a blender or food processor. Pulse for 30 seconds until everything is blended.
In a bowl, mash the banana and mix with the peanut butter. Add in the oat/apple mixture and stir.
Using a half tablespoon, scoop out the mixture onto your baking sheet.
Bake at 350 for approximately 20 minutes until lightly browned.
Makes 30 small cookies. Allow the Oaties to cool for 10 minutes.
Remember to limit the number of treats your dog gets in a day and to adjust their calories from their meals to account for the extra calories in the treats. If your dog is a small or toy breed, cut the cookies in half to reduce the calories per treat.
