Homemade Football Party Dog Treats


Homemade Dog Biscuits with Peanut Butter Glaze:

Who doesn’t love peanut butter? Your Pooch will love these homemade dog biscuits with a peanut butter glaze.

  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup oil*
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

To make the glaze:

  • 2 tablespoons bacon grease, coconut oil, chicken fat, or any other fat that will solidify at room temperature, melted
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine pumpkin, peanut butter, eggs, and oil in a bowl. Add in baking soda and whole wheat flour. Stir until a stiff dough forms. Knead dough or mix just until flour is incorporated.

Roll out dough with a rolling pin and use a cookie cutter to cut out dog bone shapes, or just bake into little circles like cookies. Bake for 15 minutes.

Whisk the bacon grease and peanut butter until very smooth. Drizzle over the treats and cool till glaze hardens (it does best in the fridge or freezer).


Peanut Butter, Banana, and Yogurt ‘Pupsicles’:

Is it NFL preseason and still hot outside? Cool your pup off with these frozen delectables.


  • 4 cups (32-ounce container) plain yogurt
  • 1 large banana
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
  • Coconut or olive oil cooking spray
  • Small dog treats like milk bones for the popsicle “sticks”

Blend yogurt, banana, and peanut butter in blender.

Place small cups in a rimmed baking pan and spray with cooking spray. (Instead of cups, you can use a silicone mold.)

Fill cups half way with yogurt mixture then place one treat in each cup to serve as an edible popsicle stick.

Transfer pan to freezer and freeze for 2 to 3 hours.

Remove a “pupsicle” from the freezer and hold onto the stick as your football fan dog enjoys his treat. Or, let him have at it.

  • 2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Add oats, cheese, and bacon to the bowl of a food processor and process until ingredients reach a crumb-like consistency.

Add two eggs to food processor and process until mixture resembles a sticky dough.

Sprinkle flour or finely ground oats onto a wood cutting board and roll out dough to about ¼-inch thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut out dough into desired shape.

Transfer dog treats to a parchment-lined baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes.

Cool treats completely and store in an airtight glass or plastic container.

Feed to your dog in your favorite NFL team dog bowl as you cheer on your team.

    The cheddar bacon sounds superb but won’t the cheese make them gain weight more? Just curious 😀

    1. Well just like us yes the too much cheese and other good stuff can make us gain weight. But these treats are only meant to be treats in moderation so with plenty of exercise which from experience puppies have,I know mine does! It will be fine. So far I will say we have 2 and they both love the peanut butter glaze ones

  10. Thank you for sharing ¨Homemade Football Party Dog Treats¨.  For me is Football Dog Treat Cookies with whole anise seeds. Dogs just LOVE the smell and flavor of anise cookies!

    Tips to make them. Originally I used an icing bag with royal icing to put the lacing on these footballs. The royal icing that I use then was made from a recipe for people. It didn’t stick to the cookies as well as I would have liked, and the icing bag was difficult to control.

    So, I suggest that, if these are for a dog bakery that will be shipping orders through the mail or by UPS, they won´t ship well if you decorate these dog treats the way I did then. The little lacings will fall off the cookies

    There are some easier (and better ) ways to do this. One is dog treat icing- because of the high sugar content in people Royal icing, I now use a dog treat icing made especially for dogs. The dog cooking icing mix that I now use is sugarless, really easy to work with, and I find it economical for these cookies.

    Even if you decide not to decorate them, put this dog treat recipe in your dog cookie recipes file and use the treats for everyday dog treats or puppy training treats. The smell of anise seeds in the oven will drive both of you and your dog crazy!
