Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Treats

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

So today I have a no bake frozen recipe for…Drum roll… your pets! That’s right, I’m so excited to share this recipe for Homemade Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Treats. Those of you who have pets can probably agree, making wholesome food for your best friends is just as fun and satisfying as sharing homemade treats with your friends and family. With this in mind I’ve whipped up 3 incredible no bake frozen dog treats.

I am a huge animal and dog lover. I grew up in Ireland with dogs and since moving to California, Kevin and I have been proud owners of the world’s sweetest pup, Waffles! My dog Waffles is a 4 year old, Terrier Lhasa Apso mix. We rescued him 3 years ago from a great facility here in Los Angeles called NKLA. This organization rescues dogs from high kill areas and gives them a better chance of survival and a better chance at finding their forever home. We are so grateful to have him.

These dog treats are made by simply blending together ripe banana, smooth peanut butter and rich yogurt. These treats are so good you might actually be tempted to eat them…and you can! I’m sure you can all imagine why your puppies will go nuts for these peanut butter and banana dog treats, but the best part is they are actually super healthy for your dog.

The main ingredient in these treats, yogurt, does wonders. High in calcium and protein, yogurts with active bacteria can act as a probiotic and are good for your dog’s digestive system just as they are for you. As for the peanut butter, this ingredient is a great source of protein and contains heart healthy fats, vitamin b and E!

These made in minutes wholesome treats will change the way you think about dog treats. I cannot wait for you to give this recipe a try, your puppies will thank you!

    I made these using powdered peanut butter (no salt, no sugar) and my very picky dog, and the dogs boarding with us, all LOVED them!

    • Gemma Stafford on August 7, 2019 at 3:38 am

      Hi Amy,
      thank you! I appreciate this very kind of you, thank you for this input, it will be a great help to other bold bakers,
      Gemma 🙂

    Oops made a mistake and put my puppy ice cream in a quart container. Can it be semi thawed and refroze to put in ice trays

    • Gemma Stafford on May 5, 2019 at 3:20 am

      Hi Tina,
      I think you can, just not too much defrosted and all will be well,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma I was going to order the dog bone mold but was wondering do you just need one mold for the recipe.
    Just trying to avoid freezing in batches. Thank You

    • Gemma Stafford on August 31, 2018 at 3:15 am

      Hi Linda,
      Here you will find a selection of molds, you may enjoy researching them here. Check out the reviews too to help you to select the right one (
      I hope you enjoy making these cookies, a cutter will work well for you too. ( and this is a great way to do this too.
      Thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

    hey gemma! excited to make these! in the future, could you add a “pets” tab under your recipes tab in the menu? just an idea 🙂 love x

    • Gemma Stafford on June 26, 2018 at 1:45 am

      Hi Sarah,
      I know! that is what I said to Kevin, but he is like ‘nooooooo’ haha! I think I will have to give him a little nudge again, I will tell him you said so 😉

    Hi Gemma!!
    First off, I love you! Thank you for your amazing ability to teach those of us that think they can not… I’ve been following you for a few months now… (Got a beautiful Kitchen Aid, I call Gemma) hehehe
    I’ve already created 4-5 different Ice cream flavors, and they are amazing… Impressed my little self! (thank YOU!)
    A few questions……..
    1. In the recipe above you say peanut butter, but on youtube you specify NO salt peanut butter… YOU said to avoid natural, cus the oil separates… I am having so much trouble finding salt free PB. Only one I found so far is actually a powder you mix with water to create PB (It has no salt and no zylotal) I am eager to make Mojo, my shih tzu, the pb, banana yogurt snax.. I will try it today with the PB powder. But what brand do you use? I will try to find it
    2. I can not find SALT free chicken broth & would also like to try the raspberry broth snack… (Found 40% less sodium, but not sodium free) I did make the blueberry strawberry yogurt snacks for Mojo.. He’s sooo picky, and he loves those!!!!!
    and 3rd. When you make the human ice cream…lol What speed do you put your kitchen aid on? What number?
    Thank you for all your amazing videos, for letting me meet Waffles & for continuing to inspire me
    I eagerly await your reply! #FairlyNewFanForLIFE <3

      Hi Betya,

      I’m thrilled you like my recipes. Thanks for much for being apart of the community.

      1, It is really hard salt free peanut butter. I think I got mine on line. Honestly the dried sounds like a good option. I think that will work fine.

      2, you can use the low sodium stock. It is such a small amount.

      3, mix your human ice cream on medium high speed. You want it pretty fast to whip up your mix well.

      Hope this answers your questions. Please share a photo when you are done, and of Mojo 🙂


      • Batya McKinley on March 2, 2018 at 1:24 pm

        Thank you for your reply!
        I’d love to upload a pic of Mojo & the bones… feel silly. I don’t see how to send a pic.
        Thank you 😏

        • Gemma Stafford on March 5, 2018 at 7:25 am

          Hi there,
          Go to the recipe, and scroll down. UPLOAD your own photo button is there. when you press this you will be asked where to find the photo, then you select this.
          Try it! We would love to see them. If I find the wrong thing I will not publish it, they have to be approved by me so that people do not make a mistake and send photos by mistake.
          Thank you for being here with us,
          Gemma 🙂

      Simply Jiff is a lower sodium peanut butter, and there is chicken broth that says no sodium but if you look it still has some.

  6. Miyazaki on November 30, 2017 at 11:34 am

    I’m new at this, what type of peanut butter would it be good for dogs?

    • Gemma Stafford on November 30, 2017 at 1:48 pm

      No worries, just a peanut butter that doesn’t contain xylitol because that ingredient is harmful to dogs. It will say it in the ingredients 🙂

  7. Bethany on August 20, 2017 at 8:42 am

    My dog is gluten-intolerant as well as being allergic to rice (a common flour substitute in many ‘hypo-allergenic’ dog treats), so this recipe is a real life saver. She really loves them and they were so easy and quick to make! Thanks so much to both you and Waffles 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on August 21, 2017 at 2:09 am

      Ah! Bethany, that is so good to hear, well done you. Poor doggie! great that he is so well looked after,
      Gemma and Waffles 🙂

  8. Alison on August 13, 2017 at 3:54 pm

    I love this recipe I keeps my dog busy and she loves the treats!!! Please post more!

    • Gemma Stafford on August 14, 2017 at 2:28 am

      Hi Alison,
      I certainly will, do check out the recipes here for more,
      Gemma 🙂
