It's always fun to bake homemade dog treats for your pup. And this holiday season isn't any different.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Dog Cookies

Ingredients & Supplies

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup bone broth or beef broth
1 egg
1/2 cup peanut butter (make sure it does not contain xylitol)
1/3 cup shredded cheese
Doggie Bone Cookie Cutter  or silicone mold
Baking sheet
Parchment paper
Rolling pin


    Add wheat flour, oatmeal, almond flour, and baking soda into a large bowl. 
    Add coconut oil, beef broth and egg.
    Add peanut butter
    Add cheese.

    Mix on low until all ingredients are well combined. If the mixture is too dry, add a more beef broth. If the mixture is too wet, add a a little more wheat flour. In the end, you want a mixture you can roll out and use a cookie cutter with. 
    Once ready, move over to a flat surface. 
    Put down a piece of parchment paper with a tiny bit of whole wheat flour. Place a piece of parchment paper on top. Then, using a rolling pin, roll out dough until thin enough to use your cookie cutter.
    Now it's time to cut up your dough with a cookie cutter. Once that's done, place them on a baking sheet that's lined with parchment paper. 
    Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, turning over halfway through. 
    Allow to fully cool before serving. This recipe will make approximately 20-26 biscuits, depending on the size cookie cutter or mold you use. 

    Pumpkin Dog Cookies

    Ingredients For ~10 Treats:

    ¾ Cup Coconut Oil
    ⅓ Cup 100% Pumpkin Puree
    2 Tablespoons Ground Ginger


    Take a sauce pan and place the coconut oil and pumpkin in it. Heat on low and wait until the coconut oil is completely melted. 

    The the pumpkin mixture and stir it really well until the oil takes on an orangish tint and takes in some of the pumpkin flavor. 

    Take your mold and put it on a flat surface. 

    Now take each mold and before spooning in some of the pumpkin, put a pinch of ginger in each of them. 

    Spoon in the pumpkin into each cavity,  then proceed to gently spoon in rest of the oil to fill the cavities almost to the brim.
    Put them into the freezer for about an hour and once the treats are solid and ready, they're good to go! 

    Frozen Pumpkin Dog Treats


    1 cup pure pumpkin puree
    1 cup plain greek or regular yogurt 


    These ones are as simple as they come. 

    First, you mix the two ingredients together into one bowl. After, just scoop the mixture into an ice tray, or any fun dog themed molding you like. 

    Pop them in the freezer for 24 hours and BOOM, you have a tasty, and healthy treat for your pup. 

    Bacon-Cheddar Dog Treats


    1 ½ cups rolled oats
    ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
    4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
    2 eggs



    First, preheat the over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

    Now, add the cheese, bacon and oats into the bowl 

    You can use a food processor or if you don't have one, anything to smash these ingredients together to get them down to the size of crumbs

    Add two eggs into the bowl and mix together until it forms into a sticky dough

    Take a cutting board, sprinkle flour on it, and roll out the dough until it is just about 1/4-inch thick. 

    With a cookie cutter, cut the dough into whatever shape you choose, and move the dog treats to parchment paper on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. 

    Once cooled, it's time for your pup to enjoy!

    Sweet Potato Dog Treats

    3.5 oz container sweet potato baby food
    1 tbsp honey
    ¾ cup + 1 tbsp gluten-free flour
    ¼ cup rolled oats
    1 large egg, beaten

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit 

    Now line the baking sheet with parchment paper or tinfoil

    In a bowl, combine the sweet potato baby food, rolled oats, honey and flour. With a spatula, combine everything in the bowl. 

    Take the contents, put them on a clean surface and knead the dough all together.

    Pat or roll the dough to a thickness about 1/4-inch to 1/2 inch. Use a cookie cutter of whatever shape you want to start cutting out the shapes.
    Place the cut out shapes onto the baking sheet and brush the top with beaten egg wash. 
    Time to put them in the over. Stick them in the oven for 25-30 minutes rotating them midway through. And when they're cooled off, they're time to munch on. Well, time for your dog to munch on them!

    Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats


    1 cup softened coconut oil
    1 cup peanut butter
    1 medium banana


    Take your peeled banana, coconut oil, and peanut butter, and put them al into a bowl. Smash them together with the back of a spoon. The softer your peanut butter and oil, the easier this will combine. It's okay to have it a little chunky (just cut your baggie's corner a little larger to accommodate).
    When all combined, fill a plastic baggie with the mixture. 

    Snip the corner with scissors and squeeze the mixture into your mold. Silicone molds are amazing for this because once they're ready, they pop right out. 
    Pop them in the freezer and once they're frozen, they're ready to enjoy!
