I wanted to share this with you all, you see, at my local Boot Fair there is a lady selling delicious doggy treats, she only charges 50p each for them and as you can imagine…Max loves them…sometimes she is not there, or I miss her and when I arrive home without them he sulks and doesn’t speak to me for a good few hours…Bless 😀
He especially loves the Peanut Butter Bones that I buy for him…I might even try making these myself, I know Max will love me all the more for it…I would just shape them into bone shapes or I am sure there is a bone cookie cutter out there somewhere…
HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER AND BANANA DOG TREATS
The parsley in these treats makes them a secret breath freshener for your pooch; substitute dried mint for half of the parsley, if you like. Don’t hesitate to adjust the size of the treats to accommodate very small or very large dogs, baking them a few minutes less or a few minutes more, as needed.
- 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 befor handing them out.

WooooooF…Now doesn’t that sound Yum Yum.
I am not sure about the Banana, as I think that would make them not last as long, so I might leave it out…but anyways, have a go, at least you will know what is in them, better than all the rubbish that you hear; goes into doggy treats ay!
