Let’s begin with the number one question I get about these dog treats and Cheerios.
Are Cheerios okay for Dog Treats?
Yes, it’s definitely okay for your dog’s having Cheerios. You’ll just want to give it to them in moderation. Dog’s should never eat Cheerios as a meal replacement or in large quantities.
For an occasional treat, your dog is perfectly safe having some Peanut Butter & Cheerio’s Dog Treats.
Unless with your dog has a grain sensitivity, Cheerios are perfectly safe.
Hint: When making dog treats with Cheerios, stick with the plain Cheerios. I would not recommend using Honey Nut Cheerios.
Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats Recipe
The most important thing to know about this recipe is to only use dog safe 100% natural creamy peanut butter that doesn’t contain Xylitol.
Dog peanut butter should not contain a bunch of extra ingredients. I always look on the back of the jar to make sure it only contains peanuts.
The Perfect Combo: Peanut Butter & Cheerios.
I stock my pantry with multiple ‘healthy’ dog treats, but I needed something that’s an easy “go to” plus isn’t expensive for all the potty training and other obedience training we are doing, which made me come across using Cheerios.
If you are looking for an easy and healthy treat for your dog, then peanut butter and Cheerios dog treats are for you. Well, for your dog anyway! They are ready in about 20 minutes and will have your dog barking for more.

This wonderfully tasty recipe combines the crunchy taste of Cheerios cereal that we all love with the healthy goodness of peanut butter and apple baby food.
It’s full of fatty acids, fiber and protein, even though your dog doesn’t care about that! My dogs, Ruby and Callie love Cheerios!
Cheerios - This recipe calls for plain Cheerios. You'll want to avoid the Honey Nut Cheerios as they contain extra ingredients your dog doesn't need.
Peanut Butter - A dog safe peanut butter contains no fillers like sugar or extra ingredients. Reading the back of the labels and choosing on that only contains peanuts is a safe bet for your dog's treats.
Honey - This recipe calls for raw honey. You can also use any local honey or Manuka Honey.
Whole Wheat Flour - Whole wheat flour is easily digested for most dogs. It's used often in dog treat recipes.
Eggs - With a high source of protein, eggs are a great ingredient to make dog treats and even dog food.
Apple, Banana & Strawberry Baby Food - Baby foods are wonderful for mixing up flavors of dog treats. Baby food is generally safe for dogs. For this recipe we are using the Apple, Banana & Strawberry baby food.
