Nutty Dog Treats

Your dog will go nuts for these almond pulp dog treats!

You can make these treats with pulp from any homemade nut milk, such as almond or cashew milk (avoid macadamia nuts; they’re harmful to dogs). If you have it on hand, adding chopped parsley helps freshen your dog’s breath. 

IMPORTANT: Not all fruits and vegetables are safe for dogs. Make sure your pulp is free of these ingredients before proceeding. 


  • 1 banana
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 egg (or flax egg)
  • 1 ½ cups nut pulp (we used almond pulp)
  • 1 cup oat flour, plus more for rolling
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. 
  2. In a large bowl, mash the banana with a fork. Add coconut oil, peanut butter, and the egg or flax egg. Mix. Add nut pulp and mix well. 
  3. Add the flour and combine to form a dough. Use your hands to mix, if needed. Finally, add the chopped parsley (optional). If the dough is too sticky, add more flour. 
  4. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about ¼ inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut into shapes. If you don’t have cookie cutters, you can cut into squares with a knife or use a cup to cut circles.
  5. Transfer treats to the parchment-lined cookie sheets. Treats will not expand in the oven, so they can be placed close together. Bake until dry, about 25-30 minutes depending on size.
  6. Let cool completely. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Freeze for up to 3 months.
