Wholesome Goodness: Oatmeal Dog Treats Recipe for Max

In the quest for healthy and safe dog treats, I’ve found that homemade recipes not only ensure you control what your dog is eating but also offer a chance to incorporate wholesome ingredients that benefit their health. Today, I’m excited to share an oatmeal dog treats recipe that Max, my beloved Golden Retriever, absolutely adores. This recipe is simple, nutritious, and a favorite in our household for keeping Max excited and engaged.

The Benefits of Oatmeal in Dog Treats

Oatmeal is a fantastic grain for dogs, especially for those with wheat allergies. It is rich in fiber, which aids in digestion, and is an excellent source of energy that is low in cholesterol and saturated fat. Including oatmeal in your dog treats can provide your pet with essential nutrients and energy without the risk of allergies and digestion issues.

Ingredients for Homemade Oatmeal Dog Treats

Here’s how you can make these simple yet nutritious treats that Max can’t resist:


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (substitute with another flour if your dog is sensitive to wheat)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (make sure it’s xylitol-free)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup low-fat beef or chicken broth
  • 2 eggs


  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, mix together the flour and rolled oats.
  3. Add Wet Ingredients: Incorporate the peanut butter, applesauce, broth, and eggs into the dry mixture until well combined. The dough should be thick but pliable.
  4. Roll Out the Dough: On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness.
  5. Cut Out Treats: Use a cookie cutter to create shapes that Max will love. Bones, hearts, and stars are always a hit!
  6. Bake the Treats: Place the treats on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes or until they are golden and crispy.
  7. Cool and Store: Let the treats cool completely before giving them to Max. Store the remaining treats in an airtight container.

Max’s Experience with Oatmeal Treats

Whenever I start preparing these treats, Max instantly becomes more attentive and excited. He seems to know that something good is coming his way! The smell of peanut butter and oats baking together has a way of making him sit patiently by the oven, eyes fixed on the slowly rising treats. The joy on his face when he finally gets to taste them is pure delight.

Keeping Your Dog Engaged with Treat Variety

Mixing up the treat options for Max ensures he remains interested and always ready to see what comes next. Sometimes I tweak the recipe by adding a bit of banana or swapping peanut butter for pumpkin to keep things interesting for him.

Conclusion: A Recipe for Health and Happiness

This oatmeal dog treats recipe isn’t just about feeding Max—it’s about providing him with a treat that’s as nutritious as it is delicious. Making your own dog treats is a wonderful way to show love for your pet, ensuring they’re eating well and enjoying every bite. Give this recipe a try, and see how your dog responds to these homemade delights. Happy baking!
