DIY 3-Ingredient Vegan Dog Treats






  1. Peel your bananas and mash them with the peanut butter until smooth.
  2. Measure and pour in your flour, adding half at a time. Mix until evenly combined and add the remaining half.
  3. Fold together until combined. Use your hands as needed to form a solid ball of dough.
  4. Chill the dough for 20 minutes*. Optional, but it helps firm the dough more.
  5. Remove the dough from the fridge and place on parchment paper or a well floured counter.
  6. Preheat your oven to 325 F.
  7. Roll out the dough to a 1/3-1/2 inch thickness.
  8. Using your cookie cutter, cut out shapes as desired.
  9. Transfer your cookies to a parchment lined baking sheet.
  10. Use a fork to poke 4 holes in the center of each, to allow steam to escape.
  11. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  12. Remove and let completely cool before transferring to an air-tight container.
  13. Give to your pup as desired! (They're people safe too!)


Depending on the size of your bananas, you might need to add a touch more flour. The dough should be slightly sticky and firm, like a sugar cookie dough. Chilling will slightly firm it up more, but it's not essential. I used a peanut butter that was only organic peanuts. Please read the label to ensure you're using a product that doesn't contain added oils and/or sugar. Freeze for up to 3 months.This is a treat, please refrain from giving your dog too many. 1-2 per day is more than enough, depending on their size. Feel free to add ground flax, chia or hemp seeds for added protein and healthy fats!
