Peanut butter, blueberry and banana dog treats in small dog bowl

This recipe contains protein-packed peanut butter combines with heart-healthy oats, anti-oxidant rich blueberries and vitamin-and-mineral rich bananas. It also gets an omega-3 boost from the addition of ground flaxseed. 

Warning:

Remember to double check that your peanut butter does NOT contain Xylitol. This sweetener is toxic to dogs. Peanut butter doesn't need to contain anything other than peanuts!

The type of tasty nutrition in this recipe is why I love creating homemade dog treats for my 'boys'. I never have to wonder if the ingredients in their treats are safe, because I know every single thing that goes into them is human-grade and nutritious. No empty calories here.
