Homemade dog treats is a great way to make healthy treats for your pets since you know what ingredients go into them and they are preservative free.
Plus they are sure to make your pet happy!
In this article, we’ll take a look at the benefits of making your own dog treat recipes, what goes into them, and how to make some of the most popular ones.
Benefits Of Making Your Own Dog Treats
You might think if you’re buying dog treats from a store, the company knows what’s in them and that they are good for your dog.
But it’s surprisingly difficult to know for sure if the company that is making the pet treats you are buying truly uses quality ingredients.
One reason for this is because of the labeling of the ingredient list per the FDA requirements allows inherit water weight to be counted.
Manufacturers don’t have to disclose the actual quantity on their packaging, although some do.
However it is still sometimes difficult to know if you’re giving your dog healthy treats or not.
Plus, companies can claim they use “natural” ingredients when they really mean meat by-products and fillers like wheat flour or corn meal.
Making your own dog treats is a great way to ensure you know what’s in them and you get the opportunity to control the quality of ingredients!
No-Bake And Bake Dog Treat Tutorial
I decided to make both no-bake and bake dog treats for this dog treat tutorial.
I know sometimes the no-bake option is better for people during hot weather, or those who who simply do not have time to bake treats.
I chose to mold both types of dog treats in the Sysrion Bones & Puppy Paws Silicone Molds.
However, any mold will do and if you don’t have a mold, just roll them into bite size balls for the no-bake treats and flatten the baked treats out like you would a cookie.
Here are the two recipes I used.Print
1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter
1/3 cup apple cinnamon granola
1/3 cup honey
1 cup quick oats
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.
Press into molds or roll into balls.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
It is much easier to mix the ingredients using your hands than a spatula.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine the ingredients in a large bowl.
Mix on medium speed until the ingredients are well combined.
Press the dough into the molds making sure the dough is approximately 1/4 inch thick.
Place the mold into the preheated oven.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove the molds with the baked dog treats from the oven and allow them to cool for 10 minutes.
Remove the dog treats from the molds.
Allow the dog treats to cool until they reach room temperature.
Store in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator.
*You may need to add a little more water to make the mix more like a dough if you are molding the cookies.
