While I do buy them sometimes when we travel, I am not a huge fan of buying dog treats. Many of the dog treats on the market contain ingredients I couldn’t even imagine feeding to my dog. To me, dogs deserve to have treats that contain not only healthy ingredients, but are made to be yummy to humans as well. Let’s face it, dogs love table scraps because they taste good and aren’t boring like their own dog food. Since it’s hard to find treats that meet our criteria for Reya, I usually heat up the oven and make my own. Not only does she love them but they are much cheaper than the ‘natural’ treats you can normally buy at the store.
Lately, I have been experimenting with a variety of different dog treat recipes. While I know she loves my normal recipe, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a better one out there. Besides, who wants to eat the same treat all the time? This recipe was actually suggested to me by The Honest Kitchen. After trying out their dehydrated dog food, I was excited to try this recipe. After trying this recipe with their Pro-Bloom Deyhydrated Goats Milk, I have to say. Best of all, Reya went wild over these treats, making them a big win in our household!

Thank you for this recipe. I am very cautious about what I feed my critters. I have found commercial products have caused all my pets to develop allergies which have not only been uncomfortable for them but very expensive (vet visits etc.) I can’t wait to try this recipe. I know they will love it!
I always learn something from this site. Never even heard of coconut flour til now 🙂
Terri S says

Candace Parker says

Anita L says
Thank you for sharing this recipe! I believe it’s always best to make our own dog food whenever possible. These days, it’s so hard to know if we’re buying safe food and treats for our sweet fur babies.
Donna Marie says
These look great!! I am going to make them for my dog.
Katrina Weghorn says
My dog loves treats, especially “new” ones that we save for training. These might be just the ticket since I can make them in different shapes and sizes depending on what we need.
He also gets coconut oil in his food every day to help with his coat and digestion issues.
These coconut sunbutter dog treat recipe looks wonderful! I’ve pinned it too so I can share it.
Gale McCarron says
Love the naturalness of this recipe for our dog. I would have never thought of using coconut flour. Thank you for the recipe!
These sound great! Have made organic pumpkin/peanut butter treats for my little guy – which he loved :). Will definitely have to try these, too.
David Smith says
These sound interesting, but I have never heard of Coconut flour, Almond or Sunflower butter or dehydrated goats milk before. I’m not sure Sparkie would like these or not since he is a little picky with his food and treats.
leslie roberts says
mmmmmmmm those dog treats look delish. I bet my pups will love them. The recipe doesn’t seem that hard, or won’t take long either
April Farley says
I am tickled to see this post. My lil baby will love these ! I just know it! Thanks a bunch from both of us!
RICHARD HICKS says
NEver tried making my own treats for the dog. May give this a try.
My dog loves homemade the best. Thank you for sharing these with us.
Cindy McElwee says
My Cocker Spaniel is so adorable, I just love giving him something new to try. This Coconut Sunbutter~ Dog Treat Recipe will be great to try on him. Thanks for the recipe. It looks easy to make, I just hope I can do this.
Those look like peanut butter cookies. I’d be afraid to leave a plate of those. They’d probably get eaten.
Susan Bewley says
They are human grade so not bad if they are – just not very sweet for humans 🙂
Aimee Webber says
This is a great recipe! I’m going to make this for my dog!
Robert Truog says
I used your recipe for my doggy and he loves your coconut sunbutter dog treat because mainly he do not like any homemade food. I tried to make the recipe you suggested and he ate it happily. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe and if you have any that type of recipe, then Please share.
Susan Bewley says
I’m so glad he loved them! Reya loves these treats and I found they also store well. I have leftover batter in the fridge and throw them on our pizza stone when I want ‘quick treats’ for Reya. Here is another dog treat recipe that uses chicken broth and is a little bit better for traveling –
Jessica Z says
My friends dog would love these. I cannot wait to try making some dog treats and cat treats!
Linda Szymoniak says
I’m always looking for new recipes for making homemade dog biscuits for my pack. These sound great, although I’ll have to do some shopping since I don’t have everything on hand. I bet my pups would love these.
Jamie Martin says
What are Chia Seeds? I’d try this, but I’ve never heard of them.
Great alternative to store bought treats. This is so healthy!
Cristy Ridey says

Amy Tolley says
My pup is always up for a great. Thanks for sharing this . I’ll have to give this one a try.
