Tuesday Cook Off ~ Homemade Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Trea

My Baby Pajamas decided this week we would focus on man’s best friend.  We wanted to share one of our recipes for homemade dog treats.   Our pitbull mix has sensitive skin and noticed that when we make him homemade treats his skin is better and he doesn’t itch as much.   We have to take care of our four legged family members too 🙂   So a few weekends ago, my sons and I researched for an easy and simple homemade dog treat.   Well, we found one and our dog Chance just loves them.   After baking, you can store them in an airtight container for up to two weeks.   The parsley in these treats makes them a secret breath freshener for your four legged best friend.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup dried parsley
  • 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.
