Make Tasty Treats For Your Furmily

Peanut butter is undoubtedly a human favourite, but it turns out that our furry and feathery companions share our love for this delectable spread. It has become a staple ingredient in countless homemade pet treat recipes, adding both flavour and nutritional benefits to our pets' snacks. We’ve collected some delightful recipes that will make your pets drool with anticipation!


Doggy Doughnuts


  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup of pet-friendly peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of plain yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup of bacon bits

Preheat your oven to 190°C and grease your pan with cooking spray. Combine all ingredients apart from the bacon and yoghurt. Once you've formed your dough, press it onto the pan. Bake the doughnuts for approximately 14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the doughnuts from the pan and let them cool before spreading them with yogurt and topping-off with bacon bits.


Pumpkin Dog Bones


  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1/3 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup of pet-friendly peanut butter


Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Using a food processor, grind your oats into a powder. Add peanut butter and pumpkin into the food processor and mix until it is a sticky batter. Flour your countertop and roll out the dough. Using a bone-shaped cookie cutter, cut out your treats and place them on the baking tray. Bake them for roughly 25 minutes, or until the treats are hard. Let them cool on a rack before feeding them to your pooch.


Bird Treats


  • 4 slices of stale bread
  • 2 tablespoons of pet-friendly peanut butter
  • 1 cup of birdseed


Use a cookie cutter to make shapes from the bread. Spread each shape with peanut butter and sprinkle generously with birdseed. Make small holes in the treats and hang them up for Tweetie to enjoy!


Rodent Nibbles


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup of pet-friendly peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of rolled oats


Mash the banana in a bowl. Add the peanut butter and rolled oats and mix well. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for 30 minutes, or until firm. Let the drops thaw a bit before giving them to your guinea pig, hamster, or rat.


Note: Food Sensitivities

While peanut butter can be a delicious and nutritious treat for your pet, it's essential to be mindful of their unique dietary needs. Just like humans, some pets may have food sensitivities or allergies to peanuts. Always consult your veterinarian and monitor your pet for any adverse reactions, such as itching, digestive issues, or breathing difficulties.


We’re sure that these delicious treats will be a big hit with your dearest pets! PS: they’re human-friendly too 😉
