This CBD oil dog treat recipe is ideal for relieving pain and helping to calm your dog. It’s simple to make and uses nutritious ingredients along with CBD oil to save you both time and money. 

CBD oil is all the rage and the benefits I’ve seen not only in the research but in my own body are mind-blowing! This recipe came about because my son loves his Grandpa’s dog. She’s getting older and having some mobility issues so I wanted to make her some nutritious treats with pet CBD oil, to see if they would help her further enjoy play time with a toddler.

Because CBD oil has helped my own anxiety so much, I thought this CBD oil dog treats recipe would be perfect for dogs that get anxious when their owner leaves or suffer noise phobias.

Will CBD oil calm my dog?

CBD may help to improve both depression and anxiety through its interactions with serotonin receptors in the brain of humans. Research shows that CBD can reduce both mental and physical symptoms of anxiety.

That said, it’s quite possibly calming and helpful in dogs with noise phobias and separation anxiety.

Which CBD oil is best for dogs?

Blue Ridge Hemp Co.: This smaller company is mission based and even offers financial assistance to those in need. They formulated CBD oil specifically for pets and more and are very reasonably priced.

I chose to use Medterra CBD oil  (enter code RNL to save 10%) as it’s what I had on hand. I figured if puppy responded well, we’d move to Blueridge for the next batch.

CBD Oil Dog Treat Recipe

Course Dessert
Keyword cbd oil, dog treat
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 30 treats


  • 2/3 cup apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 3 cups high quality flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • CBD Oil amount varies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

  2. Combine applesauce, peanut butter, eggs, CBD and melted coconut oil in a bowl. 

  3. Add in baking soda and flour slowly while mixing. Mix until a stiff dough forms. Knead dough or mix just until flour is incorporated.

Roll out dough and use a cookie cutter or you can roll into small balls (like you would regular cookies.)

  1. Drop on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes. 

Recipe Notes

If your dog needs gluten free due to GI upset, etc. this recipe will work just fine with an all purpose gluten free flour. I recommend rolling into balls the first time to get a feel for the consistency. 

CBD oil amount will vary based on how much you want each treat to contain, so you will have to do some measuring. If this is the first time you're giving your dog CBD, aim for about 2 drops per treat, or about 4 droppers full and slowly go up from there.

I recommend using Blueridge CBD oil, as it's formulated specifically for pets. 

I love this parchment paper as it's non-toxic and nothing sticks. I use it for everything!

    How cool! I bet this is such a helpful little treat for pups. I love that cookie cutter too, I’ve got to find one of those.

    What a great recipe and idea! My cat needs some of this right now, lol! I know he can’t have flour, but the CBD part. 😉 Thanks for sharing such a cool recipe and concept.

    1. Thanks Megan! I know some pets can’t do flour. What about almond or coconut flour? Would that work?

    What an interesting idea! My dogs do get some anxiety and tend to bark a lot at times so I think I may need to try this recipe.

    1. Haha, I’ve had some louder neighbor dogs I should share this with too! I do feel bad for the ones with anxiety!

    Hi, I was thinking about doing this, but worried that the CBD would evaporate in the oven. How do you know that the CBD still has bioavailability? Thank You!

    1. Great question Denise! You could reduce the heat to 320 and cook a little longer if you’re concerned!

    Hi Melissa,
    I appreciate your recipes but I am confused by the directions. You call for combining pumpkin with the other ingredients but the recipe ingredients do not include pumpkin, only applesauce, Could you please let me know which of these ingredients are correct. Thanks

    1. Hi Anne! Oh my goodness, I now believe Mom brain is real!I have updated the recipe and greatly appreciate you pointing out my ingredient swap!

  6. I love what you said about CBD oil and how it can treat depression and anxiety in animals. Finding CBD pet treats is a great way to keep your animal nice and docile. If I were to buy such treats, I would contact a reliable seller.

    Made these today for my dog. He loved them and followed me round until I gave in and gave him another one. Hopefully these will help his arthritic knee.

    1. We kept them in the freezer and thawed one a day out for my father in law’s dog and it worked well for us!

  8. I’d love to make this for my dog as well as my daughter’s dog. Not sure flour is good for dogs (??) Would this recipe work with coconut flour or almond flour?

    1. Hi Kristine! Yes, flour is definitely a personal choice with your pet. I have had some good feedback on gluten free flours, but haven’t personally tried coconut or almond flour. I think coconut flour would be a great substitute but you generally want to substitute 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup coconut flour for 1 cup grain-based flour. You may also consider adding another egg. I hope this helps!

    You say that CBD amount varies and that you should look for 2 drops per treat, or about 4 droppers full and slowly go up from there. Does the 4 droppers full equate to 2 drops per treat for the recipe you have there? I’ve been adding CBD oil to an elderly dogs food and it seems to be having a positive effect

    1. Yes, exactly. For this recipe 4 droppers would yield about 2 drops per treat. The variable really is the cookie cutter! Yes, I keep hearing so many great stories about the positive effect in animals of all ages.

    1. 350 and below will not destroy it’s healing properties. If you would prefer, you can bake at 320 for a bit longer.

  10. Hi Melissa, Would it also work to put the cbd oil droplets on the treats when they come out of the oven? Or just put the dosage on the treat when you give it to them? In other words, does it need to be baked on/in?
