Healthy 4-Ingredient Dog Biscuits

You and your dog will love this easy to make dog biscuit recipe. If you’ve ever read the ingredient labels on commercially made dog treats or biscuits, you’ve likely noticed a host of ingredients that are unrecognizable and by-products that aren’t so healthy. It’s also important to know where your pet’s food is manufactured. Since we consider our pets to be family members, it’s a must to know exactly what goes into the food they consume and where it’s produced. We think you’ll find our pet recipes to be made with healthy ingredients, yummy, and easy to make.

Our three ingredient motto for pet recipes: Healthy. Tasty. Simple.

NOTE: Check with your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet’s diet. Also, please be aware of any allergies your pet may have to specific ingredients and avoid ingredients which have caused reactions in your pets in the past. If you are unsure about a specific ingredient found in one of our recipes, introduce the food to your pets in small amounts first.


2 cups old-fashioned oats (optional, whole wheat flour)
1 ripe banana, mashed
1/4 cup natural peanut butter (without salt)
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted (unrefined extra-virgin is best)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Add oats to a blender or food processor and pulse until a flour like consistency, set aside. Combine in a medium bowl mashed banana, peanut butter, and coconut oil. Stir in flour and knead until moistened.

Turn dough onto a surface lightly dusted with flour. Use your hands and shape dough into a 1/4-inch thick circle. Use small to medium doggie cutter, cut out treats and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet or non-stick cookie sheet. Bake until golden, approximately 25-30 minutes. Makes approximately 30 (1-inch) treats or 15 (2-inch) treats.

    how do you store them (room temp or fridge)? and shelf life?

    • SkinnyMs  February 27, 2015

      Trish, Store the whole batch in the fridge, just taking out a little at a time and leaving on the shelf to be at room temperature.

    These are very tasty! I tried them first! I would sure like to find more recipes for diabetic dogs. They seem to be scarce or I don’t know where to look! Nice site you have. Thanks for all your work!

    DO these come out crunchy? Can I use applesauce in place of peanut butter?

    • Gale Compton  May 7, 2017

      JoAnn, Hmmmmm…I can’t say how they’d turn out if PB is replaced wtih applesauce, since we haven’t tried that.
      Yes, they are crunchy but can be baked for less time if a softer biscuit is needed. 🙂

      Keep us posted!
