How to make Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

These homemade dog biscuits are one of our very easy dog treat recipes. They require just 5 ingredients: banana, peanut butter, egg, cinnamon, and flour. You can omit the cinnamon but I think it gives these treats a special flavor.

  1. Smash the bananas in a large mixing bowl. Add peanut butter, egg and cinnamon to it.
  2. Beat with a whisk until smooth.
  3. Add flour to the banana peanut butter mixture.
  4. Fold with a spatula and knead until a dough forms. It should resemble a drier biscuit dough. If the dough is still wet, you can sprinkle in a little more flour.
  5. Roll the dough out to about ¼” thick, and cut with cookie cutters.

Can dogs eat cinnamon?

If you’re worried about whether cinnamon is safe for dogs, it is safe according to the ASPCA. But nutmeg can be toxic so anything with nutmeg or a spice blend like apple pie spice are off limits.

      Thanks Vanessa! I have a really picky eater, he turns his nose up at plenty store bought treats, but never these or anything I made, so I’m sure your dogs would love them too!
