Want To Feed Fido? These Homemade Dog Treats Are Delicious – And Human-Friendly Too

Throughout COVID, our family fell in love with a new hobby: baking. We’ve baked it all: pies, cookies, you name it, we’ve made it! It truly has created a stronger bond between my girls and me. After baking so many goodies for ourselves, we wanted to make something for our dog, Perla, too, and I think we’ve found the perfect recipe! The best part: they’re human friendly, and you probably have the ingredients in your pantry already. Get baking and your pup will love you even more, and your house will smell amazing too!




– 4 cups of oat flour

– 2/3 cup of unsweetened applesauce

– 1/2 cup of natural peanut butter

– 2 large eggs

– Cookie cutter of your choice


Take your ingredients and combine together in a bowl. You can buy your oat flour at any grocery story, or you can make your own by taking rolled oats and putting them in the food processor. One cup of rolled oats equals 2 cups of oat flour. Once your ingredients are mixed, roll out the dough until it’s about ¼ inch in thickness. Take your cookie cutter, cut out your shapes, then put them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake your treats for 20-25 minutes, or until they start to darken on the edges and dry out. Remove from the oven and let them cool.

After the treats have cooled, feed them to your fur baby and let them enjoy! Occasionally our dog doesn’t start eating her meals right away, so we crumble the treats on top of the meal so she’ll start eating. It was easy to clean up (because there wasn’t much to clean up!), and aside from the oven parts, the girls were able to help me with the entire recipe. I hope your pup enjoys this treat, and that you have fun baking these treats with your family!
