Homemade dog treats are awesome for so many reasons! Our dogs prefer them, they’re cheaper than store-bought, they’re healthier than the mystery-meat treats on the shelves, and you can make most of the recipes in less time than it takes to drive to the store.
When I found these no-bake treats on “Jo and Sue’s” blog, I was really excited to give them a try because they sounded so easy and simple to make. Not to mention there’s only a few ingredients in them that we always have on hand, so if I’m ever in a bind and need a quick treat for the pups I can whip these up in no time!
- Peanut butter
Step 1: Find Your Ingredients
As you’ve read in my other posts, we use organic ingredients in our house. You can use regular or organic ingredients in your treats. All you need is peanut butter, cinnamon, water, and oats. But never forget the human foods that are poisonous to dogs.
Step 2: Combine Your Ingredients
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine and stir the peanut butter, cinnamon, and water until combined.
- 3/4 C peanut butter
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 C water
- 1 1/4 C oats
Step 3: Create Ball-Shaped Treats
Once your ingredients are mixed together, scoop the mixture out of the bowl with a spoon and form ball shapes in the palm of your hand. The peanut butter will help the oats stick together once you form the balls.
Step 4: Chill In Refrigerator
Rather than baking these treats, they just need to be placed in the refrigerator before feeding them to your pup. You can even freeze them if you dog likes harder treats to chew on.
Step 5: Enjoy!
Jem and Zoey both LOVED these!
