I’m not sure about you, but I absolutely adore fall. Pumpkin spice lattes, leaving crunching under your feet, homemade soup recipes, and of course homemade dog treat recipes. Fairly certain my stovetop and oven have received more use the past couple months than they did all summer long.
Enjoy the recipes and let me know which is your (pups) favorite!

(Small batch) Peanut Butter Banana + Flax Seed Dog Biscuits
Author: Sarah @ LolaThePitty.com
- 1 cup whole wheat flour (can be substituted with rice or coconut flour for a grain free option)
- ½ banana, mashed
- ⅓ cup peanut butter
- 2 Tbsp ground flax seed
- ¼ cup almond milk (unsweetened)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
- Mix ingredients together thoroughly using a spatula until well combined.
- Roll out mixture on a floured surface to approximately ¼". Cut into desired shapes. Repeat with remaining dough.
- Place on a nonstick baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
*This yielded 24, 2-inch dog treats for me.
*Store in a airtight container.
You know the best thing about these Peanut Butter Banana Dog Biscuits is?
Besides that they have flax seed in them obviously and that they yield ~24 treats?!
You only need one bowl, a spatula and 30 minutes to pull these off!
I love making homemade treats for Lola & Rio – don’t get me wrong. But if the recipe yields 100 little dog treats, that translates to a lot of rolling dough, cutting cute little shapes out, and lots of dirty baking sheets. Then before you know it I’m ready to throw the entire piece of dough on the baking sheet and break it up for the dogs after it’s been baked. Today was one of those days, so this recipe was perfect. I played with the measurements and really enjoy this simple dog treat recipe!
I included flax seed in this because it is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for your pup’s skin and coat. You can omit this of course if you don’t have any.
I baked these treats for 20 minutes – this resulted in a somewhat chewy yet still slightly crunchy dog biscuit. (My pumpkin dog biscuit recipe is baked for longer and produced a crunchy dog biscuit, similar to a Milk Bone or something similar.)
My taste testers would tell you they LOVED this recipe. But then again it does have peanut butter AND banana AND it came from a human hand. That pretty much guarantees it’s being eaten.
I hope your pups (and you!) enjoy this small batch peanut butter banana + flax seed dog biscuit recipe!

I love these treats! They are simple and super cute.
*I used rice flour and masa (corn flour), which can be found in the Asian & Hispanic aisles of most grocery stores. You can also use whole wheat flour.
*If desired, once treats are completely cooled, you can melt some Vanilla Candiquik Coating and dip or drizzle the dog biscuits! Just use portion control if you choose to do this. I dipped about 1/3 of the treats, to give as gifts and a very special treat to Lola, but then left most of them plain.
