I came across this recipe to make dog treats using only 3 ingredients.

As I am trying to find recipes for dog treats that I can quickly make for my own dog, it was very useful. Poppy does like some shop-bought treats but I want to be completely happy with the ingredients in her treats.

As this recipe looks really easy, I thought I would give it a try. So check out how to make easy dog treats using only 3 ingredients!

You don’t need them, but I bought some doggie cookie cutters and silicone dog treats moulds. As the mixture was soft, I used the dog treat moulds. I found this easier than rolling it into balls, but you could do that if you have no moulds.

So today I gave it a try to see how easy it was. The answer? Very quick and easy. It took less than 10 minutes to make the recipe, then 16 minutes cooking time.

You Will Need:

Banana x 1
Peanut butter x 1/2 cup
Oats x 1 1/2 cup (approx) – I used 1 cup
Measuring cups
1 large bowl
1 fork
1 spatula
Baking tray
Parchment paper (optional)
Dog or Bone shaped cutters (optional but so cute!) I used these silicone dog treat moulds.


Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit or 180 degrees.

Peel banana and slice into bowl.

Mash until it is about the texture of applesauce.

Mix the banana mush with the peanut butter.

Slowly add the oats to the desired texture. I used 1 cup which gave the consistency I wanted.

Shape it into whatever size treats you want for your dog.

I put the mix into the dog treat molds in a big blob.

Then scraped it down into the individual molds. This was really easy.

Bake at 350 Fahrenheit for around eight minutes on each side (depending on size). I baked for 16 minutes in silicone moulds.

This was very easy and the end product looks super cute. Give it a try!

I couldn’t decide whether to use the deeper or shallow molds so I tried one of each. I will see if Poppy prefers the thicker or thinner treats.

  1. We just made these; they turned out great. Since we do not have molds, we used the full amount of oatmeal and just rolled the dough into balls, then flattened them a bit. The dogs (Lab, GSD and Aussie) love them! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  2. These worked great and very easy. I either needed to cook at little longer or used less of a ingredient. Will try different options. Thank you for sharing!
