Homemade dog treats: Peanut Butter Banana madness!!
I ran out of dog treats and instead of going to the Natural Pet Market that I shop at, I thought, ‘I can totally make all natural dog treats myself!’
After some searching across the Internet I realized that it was super simple, you could practically throw anything together that is natural, nutritious, and follows a few baking principle and voila! Home made natural dog treats!
The recipe below my two Yorkshire Terriers Ozzy and Lucy went bonkers over. I brought some over to my sisters house so she could try them out with her Pompoo Angel and she gobbled them up too. So these cookies have been tested 3 for 3…let me know how your puppies like them too! Next I will be trying a homemade tuna treats because that just sounds so delicious and smelly that my dogs will love me even more than they already do, if that is even possible…
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup all natural peanut butter (I used creamy but I imagine that crunchy would be great too)
- 1 banana
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup wheat bran
- cookie cutter if desired
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees and line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper
Mix together the wet ingredients and then add in the flour and wheat germ. Bring it together into a ball and transfer to a floured work surface. Roll the dough out to about 1/4 of an inch thick and cut out your shapes. Re-roll the scraps back together and continue cutting. I didn’t have any cookie dough waste as I tried to use a limited amount of flour for dusting so that the dough didn’t dry out too much.
Bake cookies until dried out and the color changes to a darker shade of brown, will take about 25-30 minutes, but it depends on the cookie shape and thickness. Cool on the baking sheet and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator – these have no preservatives in them so they will get moldy on the counter if you don’t use them up quick, that’s why I keep them in the fridge.
