Homemade Dog Treats (Tango's Treats)


Special homemade dog treats! My dogs — especially my puppy, Tango Foxtrot — love carrots, apples, and peanut butter. So for Tango's first birthday, I combined his favorite flavors into a special treat just for him. Make sure to use natural peanut butter with no added salt, sugar, or other ingredients. Keep extra treats stored in the fridge.

20 dog treats


  • 1 ¼ cups grated carrots

  • 1 ¼ cups quick-cooking oats

  • 1 cup grated apple

  • ½ cup natural peanut butter

  • 2 eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Mix carrots, oats, and apple together in a large bowl. Whisk peanut butter and eggs together in a second bowl; pour into the oat mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.

  3. Drop 1 1/2 tablespoonfuls of batter onto the prepared baking sheets. Use your hands to flatten each scoop to a thickness of 1/2 inch.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until treats are firm to the touch and begin to brown on the bottom, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool briefly on the baking sheets before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
