Cinnamon Banana Dog Treat Recipe

Cinnamon is often added to human food recipes to jazz up the flavor and add some additional nutrients. This cinnamon banana dog treat recipe can do the same for your pet!

Cinnamon has natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Adding cinnamon to your dog's diet has also been shown to reduce the risk of developing diabetes if he is older or overweight.

Bananas are a low-calorie ingredient that is included in this recipe to add potassium, fiber, copper, and other vitamins and minerals to your pup's diet.

They are also low in sodium and cholesterol.

As with anything, too much of a good thing is not a good thing. You won't want to add cinnamon and bananas to all of your dog's meals.

This banana dog treat recipe provides just the right amount of nutritional boost without adding too much sugar to your pup's diet.

If your dog is sensitive to wheat, you could substitute almond flour or coconut flour.

You could also substitute rice cereal, hulled millet or quinoa flakes for the oats in this recipe.

If you'd like to use this recipe often, you can replace the banana with canned pumpkin or mashed sweet potato to reduce the sugar content.

  • Category: Baked Treats
  • Method: Oven Baked
  • Cuisine: Dog Treats


  • 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 3 mashed bananas
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons water


First, preheat your oven to 325° F.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together all of the ingredients except for the water.

Add the water one tablespoon at a time. You want the dough to stick together firmly, but not be too moist.

As you can see, I just use my hands to roll the dough into small balls and place them on a cookie sheet.

If you'd prefer to roll the dough out and use cookie cutters to make cute shapes, you can do that too. Roll the dough out until it's about 1/4″ thick.

If you want to make small treats for a tiny dog or small treats to use during training, you can roll the dough out and use a pizza cutter or butter knife to score it into tiny squares.

No matter what shape you make them, bake the homemade dog treats at 325° F for 25-35 minutes.

You'll know when they are done, because  they will turn golden brown. For harder biscuits, you can cook them a little longer, but if your dog prefers soft-baked treats, you can take them out after 20 minutes.

Once they have cooled completely, you may feed the treats to your pup.
