I was recently dog sitting and decided to come up with a recipe for Easy No Bake Dog Treats! The recipe is very simple, just mix the ingredients together and freeze! And they are gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. A must try if you are looking for a new treat recipe for your dog!
For this recipe I found some silicon molds that were in the shape of dog paws. You can find any shape of mold that you would like, but I do recommend a silicon mold. It was very easy to pop the treats out once they were done. You also do not have to prepare the molds beforehand if they are silicon. Just pour the mixture in once it is ready!
When making the treats, pour the mixture into the molds and then freeze for about an hour. If your dog likes frozen treats, you can serve them out of the freezer. For a softer option, once they have set up in the freezer put them into a container in the fridge. Since these are no bake treats and contain coconut oil, they will get mushy at room temperature. Especially in the summertime!
This recipe does include peanut butter which is technically safe for dogs as long as you buy certain types of peanut butter. Make sure to buy a natural or organic peanut butter that only has peanuts and salt. Do not buy peanut butter that is sugar free or contains xylitol. That can be very harmful to them!
The recipe for the Easy No Bake Dog Treats is below! Since there is no baking involved, there is no need to make adjustments so there is just one recipe. Hope your dog enjoys the recipe! Be sure to comment if you have questions or try it out! And all of the ingredients are people safe too if you wanted to try a taste!
Easy No Bake Dog Treats
- Large Saucepan
- silicon molds
- plate or baking sheet (optional)
- Piping Bag (optional)
- 1 cup coconut oil
- 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1 1/2 tbsp flaxseed (optional)
- Place your silicon molds on the counter, or on a plate or baking sheet to make them more stable.
- Place all of the ingredients into a large saucepan over medium low heat.
- Mix occasionally until the coconut oil has melted and everything has been incorporated.
- Remove the mixture from the heat and let it cool for 1 minute.
- Pour the mixture into the molds. I find it easier to pour the mixture into a piping bag and then fill the molds, but that is optional.
- Place the molds in the freezer for about 1 hour, or until the treats have set.
- Remove from the molds and place them in an airtight container in the refrigerator or the freezer.
- They should last about 7 days in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer.
