Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Treats
I don’t know about you all, but personally I think that peanut butter is God’s gift to mankind. Why not share the love with your dog? This recipe can be made with a few simple ingredients lying around the house. Not only will your pup love it, but the parsley will give him minty fresh breath!
- 1 banana, peeled
- 1 cup oat flour
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup dried parsley (half of this can be supplemented with dried mint if you like)
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 300°F. Put banana in a large bowl and use a spoon or potato masher to mash it thoroughly. Add oat flour, oats, parsley, peanut butter and egg and stir well to combine. Set aside for 5 minutes.
Roll mixture into 24 balls, using about 1 tablespoon dough for each; transfer to a large parchment paper-lined baking sheet as done. Use the back of a spoon or the heel of your hand to press each ball into a (1 1/2- to 2-inch) coin. Bake until firm and deep golden brown on the bottom, 40 to 45 minutes. Set aside to let cool completely.
Storage note: It’s best to store these in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Or, freeze them to give to your pal later; just be sure to thaw the treats before handing them out.
