How To Make Dog Treats!

We’re quite simply obsessed with Serena Nelson-Faber’s brand-new book, Healthy Homemade Dog Treats. Featuring beautiful photography, millennial pink pages, and more than 70 simple, delicious recipes for dogs—including a whole no-bake section—it’s endlessly inspiring. How to make dog treats the easy way. The only trouble is deciding what to make first! If you’ve never thought to make homemade dog treats before, let this be the book to get you into the kitchen. Here, Serena shares a couple favourites perfect for the summer season. 



Coconut Bombs

Handy Hint: If the mixture is too dry or wet, simply add extra oats or coconut oil to correct.

Makes 16 Treat Balls

These treats are so yummy that they often go missing from the fridge in our house—the tasty flavour combination is a crowd favourite! Like most of our no-bake treats, these Coconut Bombs take mere minutes to make and only 30 more to set. 


» 1/3 cup coconut oil

» 2–3 tablespoons organic peanut butter

» 2 cups rolled oats

» 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


1. Add coconut oil, peanut butter, and rolled oats to food processor and mix until well combined.

2. Scoop out bite-sized pieces with a spoon and roll into little balls.

3. Toss each ball gently in the finely shredded coconut until well coated.

4. Place on a flat tray lined with baking paper, refrigerate for 30 minutes, and serve.



Edible Kong

Handy Hint: You can choose any type of apple for your Edible Kong; however, Granny Smith varieties have the lowest amount of natural sugar.

Makes 1 Edible Kong

Now, even though this technically could be called “instructions” more than a recipe, it’s too

ingenious not to include. With just two ingredients and two steps, it’s possibly the easiest dog

treat recipe known to man. Oh—and it will keep your dog entertained for ages.


» 1 small organic Granny Smith apple

» Organic peanut butter for the filling


1. Wash, core, and remove any stickers from your apple. It’s important to ensure the apple is fully cored as apple seeds contain cyanide and should not be consumed by dogs.

2. Stuff the core with your desired filling and serve.
