These homemade 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! Make these in an appropriate size for your dog with a silicone mold or just drop onto wax paper as little dots/mounds.
Homemade Frozen Peanut Butter, Banana, Coconut Oil Dog Treats
Equal parts softened coconut oil and peanut butter (I did about 1 cup of each)
1 medium banana
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).
Once mixed together, fill a plastic baggie with the mixture. 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.
Let me know if you make these! I’ll be heading into the kitchen soon to make some more homemade dog treats, so be sure to check back for more recipes to try!
