We all love the idea of feeding our pets healthy food with natural ingredients, but the idea of making homemade pet treats from scratch can seem daunting. Luckily, making homemade treats doesn’t get much easier than this. You know exactly what is in these treats, so they are not only fun but healthy too. As an added bonus, if you get hungry while taking your dog for a walk, you can munch on the pup treats too, if he’s willing to share!

Dog Treats

1 Cup Oat or Rice Flour
2 Ripe Mashed Bananas
1/4 Cup Smooth Peanut Butter (be sure it doesn’t have sugar or sweetener)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Peel and mash the bananas and mix them with the peanut butter. Add the flour a little at a time to the banana/peanut butter mixture and blend well. Chill the dough for 20 minutes. Roll out the dough and cut with cookie cutters or in squares with a knife. Put on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool before feeding! Yum!

Cat Treats

10 oz Canned Salmon (do not drain)
1 Egg
2 Cups Oat or Rice Flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop up salmon as finely as possible, beat in an egg. Add the salmon mixture to the flour and mix until well blended. If the mix is too dry add a little water. Roll out dough on floured parchment paper and cut into small treats. Move parchment paper and treats to a baking sheet (keep treats on paper, so they don’t stick) and cook for about 20 minutes. Cool before feeding.

Both of these treats will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks. These treats are both fun and healthy!
