Holiday Dog Treats

These homemade holiday dog treats are a delightful and healthy snack for your beloved fur baby. The combination of peanut butter, oatmeal, and pre-cooked sweet potatoes, pumpkin, or butternut squash provides a tasty and nutritious treat that your dog will surely enjoy.


  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of pre-cooked sweet potatoes, pumpkin, or butternut squash
  • 1/4 cup of oatmeal


In a mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup of peanut butter, 1 1/4 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of pre-cooked sweet potatoes, pumpkin, or butternut squash, and a 1/4 cup of oatmeal. Mix the ingredients until they are well combined.

Next, shape the mixture into small bite-sized treats or use a holiday cookie cutter to create fun shapes that will surely bring a wag to your furry friend's tail.

Place the treats on greased baking trays. Now, it's time to bake these delectable treats. Pop them into a 400 degree oven and let them bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until they turn a beautiful golden brown and become firm to the touch.

Allow your holiday dog treats to cool completely before storing them in a glass jar or Ziploc bag.

About the author: Gin Lee is a native of Arkansas. She studied at the Institute of Children's Literature. She is an animal rescuer, food critic, organic gardener, food editor, home cook, food blogger, artist, and a complete do-it-yourselfer. Gin Lee is a published author, journalist, and contributor, among other works, and she resides in a rural town in Arkansas with her husband and their fur babies, Highway, Princess, and Stinkpot the turtle. A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
