Peanut Butter Banana Biscuits

Top Tip: Whenever I have to give Max his worming tablets he's always spit them out until I discovered that if I pushed the tablets into a small teaspoon of peanut butter they disappeared quickly and without trace. Works every time!

Tips for Baking Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipes

You can buy novelty biscuit cutters in many different shapes and sizes (just like the fish shaped biscuits in the picture above).

However, if you're on a budget, you can easily cut the dough into various shapes using a sharp knife. Your dog will love them just the same!

The number of biscuits each recipe makes depends upon how thick you roll your cookie dough and the size and shape of your cutter.

Aside from being quick and easy to make, these dog treats will keep for a couple of weeks in an air-tight plastic tub or they can be frozen for up to three months.

One word of caution. I recommend you use natural or organic peanut butter, without excess salt or sugar as it's much healthier for your dog.

Important Note: A new type of peanut butter is being sold with less sugar, but now includes xylitol as a sweetener, however it can be deadly to dogs. Many people use peanut butter as a dog treat or to disguise medications so it's important to check the ingredients label to make sure that it doesn't contain xylitol. Better still, buy the peanut butter specially formulated for dogs.

I hope you enjoy trying our peanut butter dog treat recipes! 

Peanut butter crunchies is one of our easy dog biscuit recipes as they take no time at all to make. As an added bonus, any of these may be used as training treats, just don't give him the entire biscuit each time otherwise you'll end up with a fat dog.

Mutts De La Mer Dog Treats

I realise this recipe doesn't have peanut butter, but my dog loves these!

Mutts de la Mer are tasty, fishy patties made with tuna, salmon and Quinoa. They are packed with goodness; these treats promote healthy skin and keep your dog's coat in good condition.

Quinoa is a complete protein containing all 8 essential amino acids. It has been growing in South America for 6000 years and is rich in protein, minerals, and Omega oils, and it's gluten-free. 

Its composition makes it easy for dogs to digest.

Makes 80 - 100

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 15-20 minutes


250 g/8 oz of cooked Quinoa (cooked in 600 ml/1 pint of cold water)

400 g canned red salmon from a sustainable fishery source

150 g canned drained tuna (dolphin-friendly)

75 ml/3 fluid oz natural blackstrap molasses

50g g/2 oz wheat and gluten-free flour

2 eggs


  • Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until combined. Drop a teaspoon of mixture onto a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper.

  • Place in a preheated oven, 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6, for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Place 8-10 patties into small sealable freezer bags and freeze until required.

Mutts De La Mer Cookies
By: Jenna

Hey guys, I totally recommend you try this recipe. I did and my dog was certainly glad I did. She sat in the kitchen, watched me make them (nothing unusual as she's always hanging around me), and didn't move until I took them out of the oven.

The smell of them cooking had her almost hypnotised!

She couldn't wait for them to cool down, so I cooled one for her (I know, I'm a big softie), and she just lapped it up.

I now make this recipe for her at least once every 2 or 3 weeks and only give them to her as treats when she's been good.

By: Pauline (Web Owner)

Hello Hannah,

I finally got around to trying your Fish Patties - yes, better late than never!

I thought they were so easy to make (and quick), and Max loved them. I'll definitely be making these again, and very soon.

Thanks again for sharing your recipe.

Kind regards,


My Cocker Went Mad For These!
By: Anonymous

I tried this recipe recently, and my Cocker went mad for them.

He's usually quite greedy, but this was different. He whined so much that I had to put them in a tin and into the cupboard, well out of sniffing reach! 

Thanks for a great recipe!

Great Treats!
By: AJ

These treats are great - my cocker spaniel loves them and will do anything I ask, just so long as he gets one of your fishy treats!

Thanks, Hannah!

Ham, Gravy and Apple Sauce Dog Cookies

By: Kim
From: Alabama

This is a great recipe that I'm sure your dogs will love. I make it all the time for mine!


2 cups of organic wheat flour

2 4oz jars of baby food (I used ham and gravy and apple sauce)


  • 1. Mix all ingredients and roll out to 1/4 inch thick.
  • 2. Cut into shapes and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until crunchy.

You must keep them in the freezer because they don't contain preservatives and won't last very long otherwise.

On a hot day, my dogs love them straight from the freezer.

I Hope your dogs enjoy them too!.

Frozen Dog Cookies
By: Sara

Hi Kim,

I wanted you to know that my dog loves these cookies. I always freeze them, and when it's too hot outside, I give my dog a frozen treat; his very own Doggie Popsicle! Thanks for sharing.

I sometimes ring the changes with different baby foods, too and they're always successful.

Great Dog Treat Recipe
By: Danny

My Cocker Spaniel is 4 years old, and I made some of these treats for his birthday. He really enjoyed them! 

My Mom helped me, but only a little bit. I did most of it myself; she just put them in the oven for me.

I felt happy when I was making these because I was making a special present for my very best friend.

I love my dog, and he loves me. My Mom says I can make these again sometime or try another recipe. One that has peanut butter in them this time.


They Do Taste Good!
By: Sara

My dogs like this recipe too!

But, for the record, I tasted one of these dog biscuits, which tasted very good. Perhaps slightly bland for humans, but that's to be expected as they're made with baby food, which is never seasoned strongly.

I might try some peanut butter dog biscuits next - I'll let you know what I think!
