These Quick and Easy 5 Ingredient Homemade Dog Treats are made with Fresh or Frozen Wild Berries, Peanut Butter, Oatmeal, Eggs, and Salmon Oil and only take ~30 minutes to make!
You may remember we talking about how dry Vík’s nose is here on the blog and on Instagram stories. Recommended by our vet, we’ve been adding Salmon Oil to all of his meals, and it has dramatically improved in just a few short weeks. It is still dry, but it is lightyears better than it was.
Salmon oil supports heart health, has given our dogs an insanely soft and silky coat, reduces dry skin, and can relieve allergies and some joint pain. Salmon oil contains Omega-3 Fatty Acids, and just like humans, dogs are unable to produce omega-3 fatty acids on their own and must obtain them from their diet.
I wanted to see if I could add in more healthy fat to his diet, so I decided to make some treats today, and I am so happy (and so are the boys) with how they turned out. I wasn’t sure if they would work – but they did, and I am excited to share them with you today!
For this recipe, I used Best Paw Pure Alaskan Salmon Oil. I prefer the liquid form over the capsules because it is easier to administer, both Kenzo & Vík love the taste, and there is a higher convention of healthy fatty aides in the liquid than the soft gels. The liquid form is more expensive than the soft gels, but in my opinion, it is well worth the extra $.
I am so happy with how the healthy dog treats turned out, and I can’t wait for you to make them for your “goodest” boys and girls!
Healthy Homemade Wild Berry & Salmon Oil Dog Treats
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 15-17 minutes
- Total Time: 30-40 minutes
- Yield: Depends on the size of your cookie molds (mine made about 12 dog treats)
- 2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
- 3 Tablespoons of Salmon Oil
- 1/3 Cup Peanut Butter
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup Frozen Wild Berry Medley: Strawberries, Blueberries, & Raspberries (or fresh)
- Preheat oven to 375°F
- Put old-fashioned oats into a blender or food processor. Place the lid on, and give it a go on high speed until the oats start to turn into a flour consistency.
- Add the Wild Berry Mix, Peanut Butter, Eggs, and Salmon Oil to the blender/food processor and set to pulse for 1-2 minutes.
- Scoop spoonfuls into your silicone baking sheet and press down to fill the molds. I used this one for the dog Bones & Paws shapes.
- Bake for 15-17 minutes or until browned on the top
- Remove from the oven.
- Allow to cool completely before serving to your dog. Cover and store leftovers at room temperature or in the refrigerator. These treats will look and feel a little denser than a typical human-grade Oatmeal cookie.
