Nimble and her yummy oatmeal dog treats!Nimble showing off her treasures!

These oatmeal dog treats, along with our other healthy dog treat recipes, totally blew my (picky) dog's socks off... literally!

How can something so simple, inexpensive, healthy and easy to make be sooo tasty?

My Nimble Doggy insisted I share her heavenly oatmeal dog treats recipe with everyone...

Sorry, unhealthy dog food contaminants aren't included in these snacks.  Also, undesirable additives shouldn't be in your dog treats.

Start with a Few Oatmeal Doggy Snack Ingredients...

Nimble displays her doggy treat ingredientsNimble shows you our healthy ingredients ... some are optional

Please remember, organic all natural dog food ingredients are best for your oatmeal dog treats...

  • Oatmeal.  1 cup.  Large, whole oats are chewy and make a healthy dog treat!
  • Eggs.  2 regular size eggs from free range chickens is best.
  • Honey 2 teaspoons.  Don't let your pooch catch you eating her sweets!
  • Water.  Just a pinch... a tablespoon or less... and pure.

Do you have a better recipe?  Please share it... just click this link...

We'll publish it as a page on our site!

Maybe your doggie can be in this picture sharing her favorite treat on your published page...

The following ingredients are optional.  I can leave these dog treat ingredients out if Nimble is in a hurry!...

  • Cinnamon.   ¼ teaspoon.   Check with your canine before adding any new dog food ingredients!
  • Garlic powder.  Nimble likes (fleas don't) a little sprinkled on top of her “garlic dog biscuits.”
  • Flour.  2 tablespoons.  Whole wheat is healthiest.   Seems the flour makes the dough less tacky.

This is all You'll Need to Do...

5 easy steps, then stick 'em in the oven!...

Let 'em cool for about 15 minutes before your dog (and you!) sample the treasures.  Detach the dog goodies with your spatula and go for it!

Did your dog (and you) sample 'em too much?  Your doggy might empty her water bowl.  What if your pooch starts drinking more water than usual for some other unknown reason?  Better safe than sorry... you need to read this.

Canning jars work great for storing your dog's treats in the 'frig or freezerAll ready for the freezer or 'frig

We use canning jars to store all of Nimble's dog treats.  They're...

  • durable.
  • airtight.
  • easily vacuum sealed for freezer storage.
  • easy to see through.  After you have (hopefully) made all of our different healthy homemade dog treats, easy identification really helps!

What'cha look'in for Nimble?...

There's no oatmeal doggy snacks way up here!

"When you have time... read about how we incorporate dog treats and other healthy food into my dog feeding schedule... Arf!"  Nimble.

Homemade oatmeal dog treats ingredients

Honey should be raw, unfiltered and unprocessed.   Well, I guess it gets cooked anyway.  Speaking of...

Peanut butter for dogs should be raw (Nimble is shaking her head again... “It gets cooked anyway... arf!”).  Please make sure there's no added ingredients.

Speaking of... cooked dog food tends to stick to your furry pal's teeth.  Let Nimble tell you how to brush it away... 

There's usually no reason for a dog with no teeth.  Click here!

Flour made from wheat may not agree with your doggie. Try another type but I think the amount is so minimal your doggie should be fine!

Doggy treat construction

Olive oil works great to keep your oatmeal dog treats from sticking (too much).  Organic, unprocessed and unfiltered is best.  Very lightly coat your dog's cookie sheet.

I mix the dog treat ingredients with a spoon, unlike our peanut butter dog biscuits which are much drier.  If things seem a little runny, add a few more oats or a little flour.  Or, add the water last... you might not need it if the eggs are extra large.

Spoon 'em and plop 'em down on the cookie sheet.  My stainless baking tray is small... I use up all the dough with one batch of doggy treats.

Your oatmeal dog treats are all finished!


If your pooch wants the doggy treats hard and crunchy, leave them in the 'frig on an open plate.   Keep an eye on your furry pal's healthy home made dog treats... they'll harden up (and disappear) really quick!

Storing your dog's oatmeal treats 

  • I've left these doggy snacks in the refrigerator sealed for a couple of weeks.  You can freeze them for months, especially vacuum sealed.
  • If you decide to vacuum seal, plastic vacuum seal bags work fine for dog treat storage.  I use jars because they can be used over and over.   Also, they cost much less.

Homemade Oatmeal Dog Treats are Peace of Mind!

I advocate feeding raw dog food.  However, cooked dog treats are a nice welcome for your doggy occasionally...

By making dog treats yourself, you know exactly what's in them.  Furthermore, it's fun... even for somebody like me!  That's probably because my doggy appreciates them!   Lastly, you can make the gourmet dog treat recipe to suite your doggy.

Homemade may not be your thing.   That's ok!  You can find healthy treats pre-made... just know where to look.   Our following list will help you:
