Healthy dog treat with safe human food your pet will love!

Banana Mutt Dog Cookie Recipe

Are you looking for a fun treat to make for your dog this winter? There’s nothing like the guilt you feel when you’re baking delicious smelling chocolate chip cookies and your dog looks at you with those eyes that ask “where are mine?”

I feed my dogs pieces of banana whenever I am eating one, and they love it! Bananas are full of vitamin K, potassium and other good nutrients. Since dogs are omnivores like us, they benefit from a balanced diet with dog safe fruits and veggies. Boy is it easy to get my boys to eat their share! They see a banana and put on their best “I’m a really good dog” faces. I was not surprised when this homemade banana nut cookie recipe for dogs had them begging for more!

I’m going to try a variation of this recipe by putting the ingredients in a blender to mix! Blending the oats should give it a smoother texture, but it might come out too runny. Perhaps I’ll add some peanut butter, I’ll update you with how it turns out! For now, you can try this recipe out for your own furry friends so that they are not left out in the holiday cookie frenzy.


Banana “Mutt” Cookies

Make animal friendly cookies your dog will love, it's healthy too!

See photo guide

1 ½ cups mashed bananas
½ teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oats
½ cup chopped peanuts (you can chop your own!)
¼ cup applesauce

Preheat oven to 350°F

1) Mix all the ingredients thoroughly. If you are chopping your own peanuts, do this step before mixing.
2) Drop mixture in desired size on a lined baking sheet and flatten with a fork. Pinch the edges to clean up any oats that may be sticking out to ensure they stay together while baking!
3) Bake for 15 minutes, or until firm. They should be soft and chewy when done.

Cool on a rack and store in airtight container.  Refrigerate if you don’t plan on feeding them within a couple of days! They seem like they would do well in the freezer as well, but I honestly didn’t have any leftovers to test it out with this batch! Remember to feed treats sparingly, and one dog should definitely not consume all of these treats in one day!

      Hi Carl! Are your grandkids actually grandpups? You could easily substitute any nuts for the peanuts in this recipe! They could also be omitted and the cookie would still turn out, I think!

          Hi Carole!
          Yes, you don’t want to feed your dog anything that is toxic to them, of course. We don’t recommend feeding your dog excessive amounts of treats, either! Most nuts are non toxic but high in fat, and when chopped small like in this recipe should be no problem for your dog to digest. But please, never feed your dog something they are allergic to or that is toxic. Thank you for pointing this out Carole!

            Dogs should not eat macadamia nuts, walnuts, pecans, and pistachios just to name a few. They can cause gastrointestinal upset (no matter how small they are chopped). Macadamia nuts can cause pancreatitis and neurological disorders. Pistachios can cause pancreatitis. Please check out any type of nut before feeding it to your dog.
