Quick and Easy “Pawnut” Butter and Applesauce Dog Treat Recipe!


We love healthy and all-natural dog treat recipes…and it’s even better if they are quick and easy to make!  What could be a tastier treat for your pup than these “pawnut” (aka peanut) butter and applesauce snacks for your best friend?  Your dog will gobble them up and you can pat yourself on the back for whipping up a healthy treat!



This recipe comes courtesy of our friends Monika, Sam, and Elsa at the blog Tails Around the Ranch.  Tails follows the adventures of two adorable standard poodles -- Sam (a therapy dog) and Elsa (a puppy mill rescue)…and their two-legged Monika, who’s a pawsome dog treat baker.  Be sure to check it out!  Thanks for sharing, guys!


‘Pawnut’ Butter ~ Applesauce Treats

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups quick-cook oats
  • 1 cup ‘pawnut’ butter (Xylitol free please)
  • 1 cup unsweetened organic applesauce
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup olive oil or coconut oil (I used 1/2 cup of coconut oil)




  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Mix all ingredients well but don’t over mix. Knead the dough on lightly floured surface (if dough is too loose or crumbly, you can add more coconut or olive oil).
  • Roll to about 1/4 inch thick and cut into shapes with cookie cutters (you can also make small double balls if you don’t want to use any cutters, they’ll be fine, just not as cute as a paw or bone shape).
  • Place on cookie sheet approximately 1/2 inch apart. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Cool and serve. Store in airtight container in fridge for up to a couple of weeks.
