homemade grain-free dog treats

by Bella Woof

These homemade grain-free dog treats are so delicious your dog will be begging for more. We all know dogs are obsessed with peanut butter. A combination of peanut butter, banana, coconut flour, and almond flour, these cookies are not only easy to make, but also irresistible. Once you have your four ingredients (hemp or chia seeds are optional), you’re ready to start baking. All you have to do is mix the ingredients to make the dough, then roll it out and cut it into snack-sized pieces. Use a cookie cutter to make bone-shaped biscuits or any other desired shape.

Preparation: half an hour

Chill: 20 min

bake: 25 minutes

nice: 1 hour

total: 2 hours 15 minutes

yield: 75 small snacks


  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 3 ripe bananas (mashed)
  • 1/3 cup natural creamy peanut butter*
  • 3 tablespoons hemp seeds or chia seeds (optional)


first step
Preheat oven to 325°F. Combine almond flour and coconut flour in a small bowl. In a medium bowl, mix mashed banana and peanut butter until smooth. Add half of the flour and hemp seeds (if using). Stir to combine. Add the remaining flour and mix by hand as needed to form a dough. Cover the dough and chill for 20 minutes.

Step 2
On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick. Use a small bone-shaped cookie cutter or a knife to cut out the shape you want. Reroll the scraps if necessary. Arrange the shape on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use a fork to poke 4 holes in the center of each treat.

Step 3
Bake the treats for about 25 minutes or until dry and golden brown on the bottom. Turn off the oven and allow the treats to cool within an hour. ** Transfer treats to a wire rack and let cool completely before storing.


*Please do not choose products that contain the ingredient xylitol. Even small amounts are toxic to pets.

**Although cooling the treats in the oven is not a necessary step, I have found that this technique produces crunchier treats and keeps them a little longer.

storage: Transfer completely cooled treats to an airtight container or resealable bag. Store at room temperature for up to 2 weeks or frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw before serving.
