My dogs–especially my puppy, Tango Foxtrot–loved carrots, apples, and peanut butter. So, for his first birthday, I combined Tango’s favorite flavors into a special treat just for him. Make sure to use a natural peanut butter that does not contain added salt, sugar, or other ingredients. Keep extra treats stored in the fridge.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups grated carrots
  • 1 ¼ cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup grated apple
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 eggs

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. 2 Mix carrots, oats, and apple together in a large bowl. Whisk peanut butter and eggs until thoroughly combined in a second bowl. Pour into the oat mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.
  3. 3 Drop 1 1/2 tablespoonfuls of batter onto the prepared baking sheets. Flatten each treat with your hands until they are 1/2-inch thick.
  4. 4 Bake in the preheated oven until treats are firm to the touch and begin to brown on the bottom, 15 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool a few minutes on the baking sheets before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. Excellent treat for your dog, mine loved these. They do need to be refrigerated however
  2. I was searching for a dog cookie recipe and came across this one and tried it out, it was a winner!
  3. My dogs love this
  4. I have made this recipe twice. The first time I made no additions, but the second time I added about a half cup of oat flour. This addition helped the treats become firmer, and I recommend the addition, especially if molds are being used.
  5. This was my first time making homemade dog treats and my dog loves them. I didn’t change any ingredients but used my food processor to chop and then mix up everything as I only have a cheap hand mixer. I do keep them in the refrigerator.
  6. The recipe makes a large amount of dog treats. I don't think I cooked them enough, because the treats were still bendable after baking. But my dog adored eating them, and I will make them again, only a half batch next time.
  7. My dog did not like them ,wouldn’t even try them. Tried to give them to my sister’s dogs and they wouldn’t eat them either. Maybe I will have to eat them
  8. I fed them to my son's dog Lina, a pit bull, and my sister's dog, Dexter, a rescue. They both loved them. I would make them again!
  9. Dog loves them
  10. My puppy loved them
