These homemade peanut butter coconut oil dog treats are incredibly easy to make, quick to freeze, and perfect for hot summer days! You only need a few ingredients that you might already have on hand, a silicone mold, and a freezer!

Materials

  • 1 cup softened coconut oil
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 medium banana

Instructions

  1. Place your peeled banana, peanut butter and coconut oil into a bowl and smash together with the backside of a spoon. The softer your peanut butter and oil, the easier this will combine. It’s okay to have it a little chunky (just cut your baggie’s corner a little larger to accommodate).
  2. Once mixed together, fill a plastic baggie with the mixture.
  3. Snip the corner with scissors and squeeze the mixture into your mold (silicone molds work great since they are flexible and let you pop the treats right out. You can also find so many different sizes and shapes.).

You can also just make dots onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet, your choice! Once your mold is filled, pop into the freezer until solid. The treats will pop right out of a silicone mold and you can place them into a larger, labeled freezer-safe bag and they’ll keep for quite a while. Smaller, bite-sized treats would be great for training purposes.

These WILL soften if handled too long, so serve straight from the freezer or in a small dish.
