Dog Treat: PB+Banana Cookies

These were very simple to throw together and the dog loves them. Good to stick one in your pocket before a walk and use for heel training. Or use around the house for "Find It!"
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3-1/2 c peanut butter
  • 1-2 bananas
  • 1-1.5 c flour
  • 1/2 c quick oats
  • optional: 1 egg white
  1. Preheat oven to 300F. Lightly grease baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg, peanut butter and banana together.
  3. Add flour and oats. Mix until just combined.
  4. Drop onto baking container and flatten. [Or roll out and use cookie cutter shapes - this is overkill as dogs don't care about shape. But maybe a good idea if you are making as a gift.]
  5. Optional: Brush with beaten egg white.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Cool and serve to dog, store in air-tight container, or freeze for later use.
  • Use rice flour or whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour.
  • Use wheat germ instead of oats.
  • Add 1 T honey.
  • Use pumpkin instead of banana.
Use natural peanut butter with no added salt, oils, sugar, etc.
