Air Fryer Dog Treats

A while back I shared with you these fun frozen yogurt dog treats and they were a huge hit, in fact, everyone has been asking for more doggy treats ever since. This weekend I set out to make Air Fryer Dog treats and let me tell you they were a huge hit among the dogs in our house! This recipe is so easy and fun to make. I love that you can leave these treats a bit on the soft side or crispy them up more based on what your dog likes. Once you make these you will no longer buy dog treats at the store!

Items Needed:

How to Make Air Fryer Dog Treats

  • Add the pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and eggs to a large mixing bowl and mix until fully combined.

  • Add in 1 cup of flour and mix until combined. Add in another cup of the flour and mix until a doughy mixture forms.

  • Knead the dough by hand and add the remaining flour as needed, until the dough reaches a soft, but not sticky or crumbly consistency. 

  • Layout a large piece of parchment paper and sprinkle lightly with flour before dumping the dough onto the prepared surface.
  • Roll out with a rolling pin to about ¼-inch thickness. 

  • Cut out as many cookies as you can with your cookie cutter (I used the bone) and set them aside on a cookie sheet or similar dish.

  • Line the bottom of your air fryer with parchment paper and place as many treats as you can, in the bottom, without them touching. I was able to fit 6-7 at a time in my particular air fryer.

  • Cook at 370 degrees for 4-5 Minutes or until just lightly browned on the top. Remove and let cool for a few minutes before feeding to your pooch! 
  • Repeat until all treats are done. Store in an airtight container away from moisture and heat.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure to only use natural peanut butter with no added sugar and zero xylitol. Xylitol is toxic to dogs and can alter their blood pressure. You can find natural peanut butter at most grocery stores. 
  • If you don’t have a setting on your Air Fryer for 370 degrees, cook at 365 degrees instead. 
  • You will want to bake your air fryer dog treats in batches. Be sure they are not touching so they have room to circulate. 
  • For some reason if you are making a smaller batch in a big Air Fryer the treats may curl a bit, they will still taste great to your dogs, they may just look a bit odd. 
  • You can double the recipe if you prefer or halve it.

  • Be sure to not have extra parchment paper that goes up the walls of your air fryer. You want it to lay firm and flat in the bottom or it will have the potential to get caught and the corner fall over the treats. 
  • If you need softer treats, keep the cooking time as listed. If you want a crunchy treat, increase your cook time by three minutes or until the treat has reached the right consistency. Be careful to not burn the treat. 
  • It’s important to note that these treats won’t cook the same as an oven treat. However, they can be cooked in an oven, if desired.
  • Be sure to let these cool completely prior to giving them to your dog.

Just made these for my dogs to try. I used a shot glass to cut out , as I don't have a small cookie cutter. It made a tonne of treats. I added a small bit of finely shredded old cheddar I had leftover to my very last rollout, and they turned out darker and crisper. I have some very happy dogs! I used canned pumpkin, and froze the leftover for future batches.
