Two-Ingredient Homemade Dog Treats

My sweet Caesar boy got a bath the other day. Although he was extremely well behaved, I know it isn't exactly the most pleasant experience for a dog. For that reason, I thought he deserved to be rewarded afterwards.

Not too long ago I saw a Facebook post about homemade dog treats, so I decided to give my own easier version a try. These treats took only a few minutes to mix together

  • 1 1/2 cups Oatmeal
  • 2 4oz jars Turkey/Chicken & Sweet Potato/Pumpkin Baby Food (make sure that baby food doesn't contain garlic, onion, or other ingredients which may be harmful to your dog. 
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Grind up the oatmeal in a food processor.  
  3. Add the baby food to the food processor and combine with the oatmeal to create a thick mixture. 
  4. Use a spoon to drop balls of the oatmeal mixture onto a baking sheet. I did tablespoon sized balls for my big guy. 
  5. Bake for approximately 20-22 minutes. Smaller sized treats will require less time. 
  6. Cool completely and store in refrigerator. Recipe yields about 15 tablespoon-sized treats.

Caesar loved how these turned out and I was pretty impressed too! Since they were made with ingredients that I actually eat, I gave them a try too. Yes, I tried dog treats. They weren't bad! Now, I'm looking forward to experimenting with some other treat flavors in the future.

Love, Alex

  1. I am definitely going to make Emma these! :) Thanks for sharing.

  2. Judy would love these! Typically, I mix flour, peanut butter and chicken broth for quick treats for her :)

  3. I've made those before, but with flour and dog food. My dog loved them!

  4. I LOVE this!! Kali will love these treats! Thank you for sharing, and I will definitely have to taste test (that's totally normal right?!) :)

  5. I'm totally pinning this! I never thought to use baby food!

  6. These seem really easy! I have made them before with a different recipe and they were really difficult because it required hand kneading...why I did that to myself I will never know.


I love hearing from you! Thanks for stopping by!
