Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

All you need is 4 ingredients for these hypoallergenic treats! And the coconut oil makes these so HEALTHY for your pup!

I have been obsessed with coconut oil lately. I know, I’m a little late to the coconut oil trend but better late than never, right?

I use it in all of my cooking, but more importantly, it’s a godsend for these two nuggets.

I have found that coconut oil has been shown to elevate metabolism, provide a higher level of energy and vitality, protect from illness, and speed healing. As a bonus, coconut oil can also improve your dog’s skin and coat, improve digestion, and reduce allergic reactions.

See, I told you. It really is a godsend.

And they make amazing 4-ingredient hypoallergenic treats for your pup, letting you use up those lingering ripe bananas just sitting on your counter.

See, Ollie knows what’s up. He’s even got his puppy eyes down to a science.

Please read recent warnings re giving dogs peanut butter. It’s been in the national news: manufacturers are using a chemical sweetener called xylitol and its deadly for dogs.

I never use ready-made peanut butter from the grocery store, and neither should you. My local co-op has a peanut machine that makes peanut butter. This is real peanut butter and the only peanut butter I will serve my dogs.

Peter Pan does NOT contain it

Thanks for the heads up on peanut butter. I didn’t know that.

These look good but watch out for this ingredient. Xylitol, a sweetener used in many foods, including peanut butter, yogurt, toothpaste and chewing gum, is safe for humans but potentially deadly for dogs. If ingested, it can cause seizures, liver failure and death, warned one animal hospital, which called xylitol “extremely toxic” to dogs.

Very true, but we shouldn’t be giving these types of peanut butters to our dogs anyway! The Xylitol is added to replace the huge amounts of sugar that are usually in peanut butter. Natural peanut butter is a much better choice, for humans AND dogs. Peanuts should be the only ingredient :). Thanks for looking out for our pups!

I love these! Definitely going to make them for my girls (fur-babies)! Your sweet pups are beautiful!! Always love seeing photos of them!

I’ve never made homemade dog treats, but I definitely need to try them sometime! They look like a healthy, nutritious treat for your dog! Thanks for sharing! 😀

The Preventive Vet says: The list of peanut and nut butters containing xylitol that we have uncovered has now grown to FIVE! We have reached out to all of them to discuss this dog hazard and to secure increased awareness on their product packaging and websites. We will continue to keep you updated with progress. Here are the five companies (in alphabetical order): (1) Go Nuts, Co., (2) Hank’s Protein Plus Peanut Butter, (3) Krush Nutrition, (4) Nuts ‘N More, and (5) P28.

I don’t know these brands but they are sold on-line and in grocery stores.

I only use Jif or Skippy and this is NOT listed on the jars. Read your labels before buying. I will be trying this recipe. Thanks!

These homemade dog treats look easy to make. So much better than processed dog treats. Your puppies seem to enjoy the dog treats! Thanks for sharing. Pinned to share.

So so cute! I love that you even had a dog bone cookie cutter. Adorable!
