Cooking with the Library–No Bake Dog Treats

no bake dog treats

Dog treats are never in low supply at my house, especially with a Chewy account.  My dog has learned all she has to do is give me a “sad” look and she will get whatever she wants. (Yes, she has me wrapped around her paw and I’m okay with that.) However, with longer waiting periods to receive orders and trying to social distance, her treat stash has been dwindling.  So, in order to make sure she gets her snacks, I searched for easy recipes to make so she always has something on hand.   

Below is a cheap, easy, and quick recipe that both dogs and humans can eat. (Yes, humans can snack on these too!) Plus, my SUPER picky dog likes them too, so what’s not to try.



No Bake Dog Treats 



  • 1 ½ cups peanut butter 
  • ½ tsp cinnamon 
  • ½ cup water 
  • 2 ½ cups oats 



1. Combine water, cinnamon, and peanut butter in a large bowl. 













2. Once mixture is combined, add the oats and mix together.  














3. Line a cookie sheet with either wax paper or parchment paper. Roll oat mixture in balls. (The size of the balls depends on the size of your pet.  Around 1 inch for medium/large dogs and ½ inch for smaller dogs.)  













4. Place balls on lined cookie sheet and refrigerate for 1-3 hours before giving to your pet. 












5. Place in an airtight container to store.  These treats will last up to one week in the fridge. 



After getting my Hogwarts letter, the sorting hat placed me in the Main Unit as an Adult Librarian. I’m a fan of Asian dramas, anime, manga, YA fiction, fantasy fiction, all things animal (especially dogs), and have a slight addiction to coffee.
