Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

My dog Milo loves his treats! Although he eats pretty much anything and everything, so I guess that’s not saying much! Well, while he may not care what he eats, I do. Have you ever looked at the ingredients on a bag of treats? Yikes! I bought a bag of peanut butter banana treats, thinking they were vegan, and I got home and realized there were things like maltodextrin, gelatin, caramel coloring, and even eggs. Eggs! I never even thought about eggs in a dog treat.

The good thing is there are only three ingredients. They’re easy to make and will save you a lot of dough (all puns intended)! Seriously a bag of dog treats was $12.99. I made these with ingredients I already had at home! You can make them with either bananas or pumpkin puree. I made both. You could even use apple sauce but would have to adjust your flour a bit. They will keep for up to two weeks in the refrigerator.

Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

  • Author: Stephanie Bosch

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour (you can also grind old fashioned oats into a fine powder)
  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 ripe bananas (you can also use 1/2 cup pumpkin puree)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat. 
  3. Mix ingredients in a bowl until a dough forms. (I used my hands) If the ingredients seem too dry, you can add more peanut butter one tablespoon at a time. If too wet, add more oat flour. 
  4. Cover bowl and refrigerate dough for 30 minutes. 
  5. Remove from refrigerator and roll mixture into 1/2″ thick rectangle. 
  6. Use a cookie cutter and cut dough into shapes. I used these
  7. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until dough is brown around the edges. 
  8. Remove from oven and let cool completely. They will firm up when they cool. 
  9. Refrigerate and store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. 

Notes

You can double the recipe and freeze half of the treats.   They will keep in the the freezer for up to 3 months.
