Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats. Two of my dog’s favorite foods are peanut butter and bananas. Sookie’s other favorites include salmon, sweet potato, and butter (which I do not feed her purposely), in case you were wondering. But anyways, peanut butter and banana are the perfect treat ingredients, hence these Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats!
What are the healthiest dog treats you can give your dog? I’m no vet, but I would assume it’s homemade ones, with no weird additives or ingredients you aren’t sure about. These are also minimalistic (5 ingredients, anyone?), and super fun.
Such a good doggo.
Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats: time to get creative
You can cut these out into any shapes you’d like. Clearly, I like moons and stars. And because you have to prick the treat before it bakes, I made some moon faces instead.
It’s time for that ~dog treat creativity~. Your dog may not appreciate it, but you will. So cute. The pricking is to prevent puffing up. Make any designs you want to using a toothpick or chopstick end. I used a chopstick end so the dot would be larger. You can also just prick with a fork.
My dog loves these so much. She stalked me and begged the entire time I was taking photos of the treats. I tasted these and they really do taste like peanut butter and bananas! I may have eaten quite a few. Don’t tell Sookie.
She’s so hairy. I know. Look at that hairy bandana omg.

Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats
- Baking sheet
- 2 large bananas
- 90g peanut butter (with NO xylitol & no oil, sugar, or salt; the ingredients list should only contain peanuts)
- 1 egg
- 150g oat flour
- 140g whole wheat flour
- olive oil, for rolling
- Preheat the oven to 350F.
- In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until it has a baby food consistency. Add the peanut butter and the egg and mix thoroughly.
- Add the flours and stir in until fully combined. Gently oil your hands and a clean surface. Knead the dough until it’s not sticky.
- Roll out the dough with a lightly oiled rolling pin until about a ¼ of an inch thick.
- Stamp out the treats with your preferred cookie cutter, re-kneading and re-rolling with scraps. Place the treats on a parchment lined baking sheet, with an inch between each treat. If you make differently sized treats, bake them on separate baking sheets, because they’ll take different times to bake.
- Bake the treats in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, depending on the size of the treats (12 for for small, 15 for larger treats!). They should be a little brown at the edges after baked. If they're not, bake them a bit longer, checking often. Let the treats cool for 5 minutes on the sheet pan before transferring to a cooling rack to fully cool.
- I hope your doggo loves these like mine does! These freeze amazingly for long term keeping. Let me know what you think below in the comments or on Instagram @higheralchemybaking!
