Something savoury and something sweet – that’s what our Beef and Banana Bars Dog Treat Recipe offers. There’s a little bit of everything in these bars: meat, fruit, grains and cheese. It’s like a well-balanced meal in a compact energy bar. It’s ideal for dogs on the go, to replenish energy after a vigorous play session at the park or a robust walk with their favorite human.

Makes 12 bars


Ground beef and bananas are the main ingredients in this easy-to-assemble recipe for healthy dog bar treats.

1⁄2 cup ground beef, uncooked

1 ripe banana, mashed

2 cups rolled oats

1⁄2 cup cream cheese, room temperature

1 cup water

2 eggs

1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Make sure that your 9” baking pan (I used a square pan) is coated with a thin layer of non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, add water and oats. Stir thoroughly and leave oats to soak for 15 minutes.
  3. Add in all the remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly to form a thick batter.
  4. Pour batter into the baking pan and smooth out evenly.
  5. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until slightly crispy on the top.
  6. Cool and slice into individual bars before serving.
  7. Store bars in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
