Amazing dog treats

Hi .. I've made these for my pups and they just go nuts for them. I usually make them once a month and I make a double batch and freeze some for later. They smell divine when baking. I hope you enjoy the recipe


BTW I usually add a bit of wheat germ to this.

Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Cookies

2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup dry powdered milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
1 each - contents of 1 vitamin E capsule
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 cups flour


Combine peeled bananas, peanut butter, egg, honey, water and baking soda in
food processor (or mixing bowl). Blend well.
Add baking powder, cinnamon, dry milk, oil & vitamin E. Blend well again.
Add whole wheat flour and oatmeal. Blend well again.
Add bread flour a little at a time, blending after each addition, until
it's the consistency of bread dough. Knead for a few minutes, or let the
food processor zap it around for a while.

Let the dough rest under a bowl for about 15 minutes (makes it easier to
roll out), then roll out to about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick on a floured board
or towel. Cut into shapes with cookie cutter or cut into small 1 to 2 inch
squares by running a pizza-cutter across the dough. Re-roll scraps until
all dough is used.

Preheat oven to 350.

Baked on oiled cookie sheets on middle rack for 30 minutes until bottom of
cookies are golden brown. Turn oven off and leave treats in oven for 8 - 12
hours to harden.

I would never feed my dogs much of anything untested and not formulated under a nutritionist.

Sounds good Boots! I cook for my dogs along with their kibble. It is a recipe similar to Halo's canned but mine is all fresh and a lot cheaper. Dogs' definitely benefit from fresh fruits and veggies - especially the ones with skin problems in my home.

I make peanut butter biscuits for my dogs, but the addition of banana sounds great. Must try these.

My Dad actually ate one (they smelled so good, and I had stepped outta the kitchen) I came back in the kitchen to him asking me what I had cooked that they were good...I was like...those are DOG cookies...

Not that nothing in them would "harm" us...I used organic bananas and apple in mine, with whole grain flour...and I dont put in honey, but extra peanutbutter, and I put in Milled Flax, for omega 3.
