Vegan & Gluten-Free 3 Ingredient Pet Treats (Dog & Cat Friendly)

So last week Valentina from The Baking Fairy and I shared with you all our chocolate & coffee collaborations (Mocha Vegan Cheesecake & Vegan Cappuccino Brownies). Valentina is my best friend so it seemed only fitting that we make decadent desserts to share around Valentine's Day. But I also have another, slightly furrier, best friend who deserved a treat, but unfortunately anything with chocolate was definitely a no-go for her. That best friend is, of course, my dog Pooh Bear! This fluffy little wiggle butt is bursting with unconditional love and affection, so naturally I had to honor her this Valentine's Day as well. Plus Pooh Bear survived the groomers, of which she is absolutely terrified, so she was overdue for some extra lovin! We all know the way to our pet's heart is through food and vigorous petting, and who can blame them? If you rubbed my back and bought me my favorite tacos every day I'd love you unconditionally too! While I don't recommend feeding your pets tacos everyday these dog treats are so scrumptious I don't think they'd mind the substitution. My Pooh Bear certainly didn't! These dog treats are way less expensive than the natural dog treats you'd buy in the store, plus they don't have all those nasty animal parts or weird ingredients. I would definitely recommend getting organic ingredients if you can just to keep the nasty chemicals and preservatives to a minimum. Besides even if you bought all organic ingredients you'd still be spending less than you would on traditional treats anyways! To my knowledge these treats are save for cats as well as dogs, although I haven't had a cat to taste test them yet.

Yields about 2 dozen treats 
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 very ripe bananas
3 1/4 cups of unbaked oats
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a baking sheet
2. In a food processor blend oats to a fine powder then scoop out a little bit to flour a kneading surface on your counter.
3. In large bowl mash bananas together with pumpkin until a paste forms. Pour in the remaining oat flour and stir.
4. Move your dough onto the oat-floured surface and knead until all of the flour is incorporated. Roll out your dough till it is about 1/4 inch thick and cut out treats in whatever shape you like. Repeat as needed until you have used up all of the dough.
5. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes then allow them to fully cool before feeding them to your furry friend.


  1. Hi, thanks for sharing! I cannot wait to try these out. Do you know how long these stay good? If they are store outside of a bag or container?

    1. Oats contain avenin, which is a protein similar to gluten. It doesn't affect the gluten intolerant though.

  3. How long does these last? Thanks.
