Homemade Dog Treats - Peanut Butter Oatmeal
These quick and easy Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats are going to be a hit at your house! I made the recipe small because when I make big batches I have to find neighbors dogs to give them out to and I am sure you all feel the same way. If you want to make homemade dog treats you probably also want them to be fresh! This recipe will make six medium/ large cookies or 9 small cookies. The addition of Cinnamon and Honey to this recipe is what is going to set it apart.
Cuisine: Dog Treats
Recipe type: Dog Treats
Serves: 6 - 9
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • ½ cup of oatmeal
  • 1/ tablespoon of peanut butter (I used chunky you can use whatever you have in the house)
  • ½ tablespoon of water
  • 1 large egg
  • ⅛ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon of honey
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. It really does not matter what order you mix your ingredients together these are dog treats not a wedding cake. I
  3. personally started with the oatmeal and then mixed in the cinnamon. After the cinnamon I decided to drizzle in the honey and stirred it together. Then came the peanut butter which I also mixed in before adding the water and egg. I stirred the mixture together really well to ensure that all of the oatmeal was covered.
  4. I don't use cooking oil spray so I coated the baking sheet with olive oil - you could certainly use any healthy oil you choose.
  5. I made these into round cookies but you could do spoon drop cookies if you don't want to get all messy.
I used a large egg. If you only have extra large or jumbo eggs in the house I would cut down on the water a little bit so the cookies don't get runny.
Most dogs are attracted to cinnamon but if you dog is not a fan you can certainly leave it out of the recipe when you make them. Store in an airtight container or freeze for later use.

  1. I’m a terrible cook but those look like something I could handle. Trying these when Olive gets a little older. Thanks!

    • I’ve made these treats several times. It’s easy, uses simple and wholesome ingredients, and my cat and dogs love them. We turn off the oven after 20 minutes and leave the treats in for an additional 15 minutes to make them crunchier.

      • How much peanut butter do you use? The recipe says 1/. I’m not sure how much to use. Thanks.

        • It is 1 Tablespoon…there is no such thing as an 1/8 or 1/4 of a tablespoon because it would be counted in teaspoons if that were the case, it was simply a typo 🙂 I just made them!

  2. Oh my those look yummy!! Thanks for sharing!!!

  6. These look yummy! I work at a pet store, so I always get lazy and just grab something at work rather than make my own healthy treats. Luckily the dogs don’t mind. 🙂

    Yea…a treat my old dogs will eat! Might be one of those “one for you and one for me” things.

  27. I made these for my mini dachshund and she absolutely loved them! Thanks for the great recipe!

  28. I just made my pups these and they absolutely love them. It is very easy to make.:)

  29. Just made these and my dogs went crazy over them! I kept the egg shell, ground it up in the food processor and added it to the batter for extra calcium!

  30. About the oatmeal…. do you mean dry oatmeal or prepared oatmeal (with water)??

  31. Just baked these for my very allergic Goldendoodle. He drooled at my feet through the entire process then gobbled up 3 before they were fully cooled! Thank you so much for an easy, yummy dog treat 🙂

  32. I just made these for my little Belle. She loved them. I had to cut her off after three of them; she would have eaten the whole batch if I’d have let her! My chickens like them, too!

  33. Just made these for Remi. She absolutely loved them. I loved that the recipe was simple and I had all the ingredients on hand. Thank you!!

  34. My daughter sent me the above recepie and I can’t wait to use it.I have older babies and need to put glucosamine in the cookies,have you got any suggestions regarding using this.I was just going to go to the pet store and see what “spoke “to me.Will be waiting to hear from you because I need to make some tomorrow !

    • Hi Mary Ann,
      I am not sure if I would recommend adding Glucosamine to the recipe before they are cooked. Like with any supplement I am not sure if it would keep its properties that are needed to help your babies joints.

      We are actually going to be working with a brand called Natural Solutions for Life – Natural Stride which is a joint supplement made in the US with only natural ingredients.

    OK, Baked them the other day when the kids were at school. Dogs were going hectic with the snow.. (I’m tellin ya!) so I decided to give this little recipe a try- great stuff on here- and now my two little devils have turned into angels. Thank you for giving me some peace before the kids come home! Great recipe

  36. I bet my pups will love these! With the oatmeal, do you use dry oatmeal or prepared oatmeal (with water)? Thanks for the share!

  37. Hey would like to know how long should i bake these cookies in the oven and the degree to bake it . Thanks.

  38. Hey would like to know how long should i bake these cookies in the oven and the degree to bake it . Thank you.

  39. Length of baking time is not mentioned, but I’m trying them right now anyway. 🙂

  40. I added 1/4 cup whole wheat flour to the mix. I have 2 Cavies Emma and Erin and 1 Pembroke Welsh Corgi. The reciepe doesn’t make enough for my crew hence adding in the flour. I hope they come out as good as they are smelling in the oven!

  41. Just made these..in the oven now. Mine didn’t seem to stick together very well. I doubled the recipe but I wasn’t able to roll them into balls because they weren’t sticking. I hope they turn out okay and don’t just fall apart. Any suggestions for this, so they stick together better next time?

  42. Hi there, simply turned into aware of your weblog via Google, and found that it is truly informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels. I will appreciate should you continue this in future. Numerous other people will be benefited out of your writing. Cheers!

  43. it looks delicious!
    Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  44. I have a GSD and a Cocker . They love these treats!

  45. My Pomeranian, yorkie and chihua loves these , so easy to make, thank you for sharing this recipe

  46. These treats are absolutely scrumptious! My pups go nuts every time they see one 🙂 I added some banana, peanuts, and molasses also to give it my own personal touch and also because those are some of my dogs’ favorites. If you cook them for 20 mins. or less they have a more breaded texture (which is great for my German short haired pointer, who has sensitive teeth and gums); But if you cook them for a little bit over 20 mins. they while become crispy (which is great for my Lab, who loves to hear the crunching noise). Overall I give these treats 5 paws up! Definitely a favorite in my book and will make them over and over again! 🙂

  47. I’m making these for my puppy today. 🙂 Thank you for sharing!

  49. I made these treats for my puppy’s 3rd birthday. He is a 115 italian mastif. He absolutely loved them. I doubled the recipe and left out the honey since we had none. He LOVED them. Thank you for the great clean recipe for my pup!

  50. I was looking for an extra little something to make my furbaby and came across this recipe. The first time I made it I accidentally burned them just a little. But, my dog still loved them! I’m making them for the second time today with the temperature set a little lower. I know he’s going to enjoy them during round two!

  51. my dog loves these and they are so easy to make he all ready ate all the ones I made

  52. so easy to make and my dog loved them!! Made them for her birthday today!!

  53. I love this recipe! I was seeking a flourless, easy, and a combination of peanut butter and honey dog treat. I am so glad I stumbled across your blog. I immediately made the dog treats just a few minutes after I read the recipe. My dog Heidi, a beagle mix, loved them!

  54. I just made these for my ShihTzu, Gracie. Oh my goodness, she loves them! She won’t leave the kitchen. She knows they are sitting on the counter, so she sits and stares. Thank you for this simple, healthy, and apparently yummy dog treat!

  55. Thanks for the recipe! My dog loves them

  56. Great recipe! My dog loves them

  57. Oatmeal heart shaped, I made with baby sweet potatoes

  58. Doggie sitting two of the most beautiful doggies in the world! Just made this wonderful recipe for them, and it looks like I’ll be making these treats again and again! Thank you!

  59. Angela Shaune says

    My rat terrier, Murphy, is almost 16. Are these soft enough for a wonderful dog who is losing teeth?

    • Hi Angela –
      You could certainly give them a shorter cook time and maybe only make a few at a time. You can leave the rest of the dough in the fridge so that you can offer them to your dog warm from the oven. I think the longer they sit the harder they will get.

  60. Why would you use chunky peanut butter dogs can not digest nuts of any kind unless they are in a butter form. It could cause serious health issues that could end up killing them. Learned this the hard way.

  61. Jaspersmom says

    These look amazing and I will be making them this weekend. However I was wondering what the shelf life of the treats would be and what the best way to store them would.

  62. How much peanut butter do you use? The recipe says 1/ tablespoon, but what does that mean?

  63. What is your recommendation on storing homemade dog treats? Thank you.

  64. How long do you bake the treats?

  65. do you have to soak the oats first before mixing them with other ingredients
    thank you >

  66. What is the calorie count on these, I have to be careful cause she tends to be overweight
