Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Treats - Easy Frozen dog treats that your pets will go nuts for this Summer!

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!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe, my dogs love them. I have two Great Danes and the ice cube tray does not have the best shape for them so I used my silicone cupcake mould and filled them about 1/3 of the way and it worked out perfectly. One of my danes is an older girl with dental issues so added 2 tbls non flavoured gelatine diluted in 3tbls water and refrigerated them to make a fresh chewy snack. Thanks once again!

  2. thank you so much my furry friend loved them it is winter where I am so I never froze it but she still loved them.

    1. Hi there,
      you need to judge this according to the size, breed, and weight of the dog. these are treats, generally, dogs do not get too many of these, a bit like kids I suppose. I am delighted you tried this recipe, and your dog will be delighted too <3

    1. Hi Vickie,
      I do not really use one brand, just natural live strained plain yogurt, which I find almost everywhere I shop here in LA. Costco, Wholefoods, and local stores all carry this. Strained yogurt is thickened by straining, like Greek yogurt, it has no additives to thicken it, and it will say STRAINED on the pack.
      I hope this helps,
      Gemma 🙂

  3. Hello looking for the amazon doggy bone 🦴 treat mold please you said you have a link on your website

  4. 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!

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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

    1. 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 😉
      Gemma 🙂

  8. 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

    1. 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 🙂

      Best,
      Gemma.

      1. 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 ????

        1. 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 🙂

    2. 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.

  9. 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 🙂
