Homemade Dog Treats with Peanut Butter, Banana + Parsley

I always judged those dog people. You know the ones.

Homemade Doggie Treats with Peanut Butter,  Banana + Parsley

The owners who dress dogs up in sweaters. Carry them in designer bags. Treat them like children.

I judged those people hard.

But today, a friend pointed out that Lola and I were wearing matching purple rain jackets.Dinner conversation revolves around when and where she… ahem… pooped that day.And I just can’t help but talk to her in a teeny weeny baby voiwce.

OMG. I’m one of them.Judge away, people. I’ll be in the kitchen. Making homemade treats (with parsley to combat doggie breath!) for my puppy love. Wrapping them up in bows. And taking billions of pictures of Lola enjoying the delicious doggie treats.

  1. I will be making these for my pup tomorrow!

    What breed is Lola? She looks just like my pup.

    • Hi Elaine – can’t wait to hear how your pup likes them! We rescued Lola and aren’t totally sure of her breed. We suspect she may be part pitbull/bulldog as well as something small like pug or frenchie. What about yours? Maybe you’ll help us solve the mystery 🙂

    • They came out great and all the dogs loved them. I gave some to my old boss, her mom, my aunt and my mom for their pups and they said the dogs were crazy for em. I just made more last night too for my pup.

      Sid is a 35lb pug mix, his mom is a full black pug. I got him in 2004 from a pug rescued so I thought he was a full pug but he looks like Lola. My fiance thinks he is a puggle, a beagle and pug.

    • Yay, so glad to hear the treats were a success in your house too. We’ve been told that Lola might be beagle – so that makes a ton of sense. Thanks for this info!

  2. I wish I had a bone-shaped cookie cutter like yours, they are so cute like that! I just made some and my pup has already devoured two! I added a little molasses because my dough was pretty dry but I love the soft and slightly crunchy texture (and so does my dog!)

    • So happy to hear these treats were a hit! Hope you saw my latest post – doggie donuts. These were also a huge hit in our house 🙂

    Did you put in the refrigerator or can be at room temperature and for how long are good

      Great question! I keep them in the refrigerator to prolong the shelf life – but you can certainly keep them in a sealed container for a few days.

  9. These are so cute! I would have tied them in bows too.

    I can’t wait to make them. Love the idea of parsley!!! My boy is going to love these!!!!

    I have recently started a recipe sharing site (food photo site) specifically for pet treats, as I found the big food sharing sites, didn’t accept treats for our fur babies!

    I would love to have you submit your recipes and photos.

    I just made these for my beautiful Beagle and she loves them. Thanks for the recipe, at least I know exactly what she’s eating and don’t feel guilty giving her commercial dog biscuits. These are all natural!

    Hello, what does the T stand for, for the peanut butter?
    Also, would I be able to leave out the banana?

      It stands for Tablespoon! I wouldn’t leave the banana out… it replaces the oil or butter for a healthier alternative for our furry friends.

      I’m no animal specialist, but I don’t see why your chihuahua wouldn’t love it!
