Dog Treats Recipe: Banana & Peanut Butter

Lucy patiently waiting... 
Lucy has a new favorite dog treat.  It combines two of her favorite tastes:  bananas and peanut butter.  Probably the only thing that would make it better is if it had cheese!    Actually, Lucy and Rudy are not picky eaters.  They'll eat almost anything.  However, both really love bananas.

This recipe is quick, healthy and easy to make substitutions depending on what you have handy in the kitchen.   It has a bit of a plus with the addition of parsley for fresh breathe.

We snatched this recipe from our Newsbite from Modern Dog Magazine.   You can fetch more dog treat recipes from Talking Dogs here.  Bone appetite!

Banana & Peanut Butter Dog Treats
1 banana, peeled

1 cup oat flour (we substituted whole wheat flour)
2/3 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup dried parsley
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Smash/mash the banana in a mixing bowl.  Add the other ingredients and mix well.  Set aside for about 5 minutes.  Roll mixture into 24 balls, using about 1 tablespoon dough for each.  Place each ball on a large parchment paper-lined baking sheet.  Use a spoon to press each ball into a 1 1/2" to 2" flat coin.  Bake until firm and deep golden brown on the bottom - approximately 40 - 45 minutes.

  1. Woof! Woof! Happy Tasty Tuesday. Oh I do LOVE Banana n Peanut Butter. ENJOY! Have an enjoyable Tasty Tuesday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. Sounds good! We would make this with just the bananas -- no peanuts in our house. ;)

    Woofs & hugs, <3

  3. Yummo! Is there anything tastier than PB & Banana?! These sounds really tasty. Thanks for sharing them on this yummy Tas Tuesday!

  4. Yum! I'm gonna get mama to bake these for me! Love your blog!

  5. Sadly for JF and Dewi, since PB and banana together rivals only a Reese's PB cup in my taste book, minus the parsley (ew), *I* would eat all these treats. I am not kidding.

  6. Bailey brought up a very good point! Beware those peanut allergies! Plus, I should also add that wheat can also be a common allergy. This recipe does allow substitutions.

    @Elizabeth - I laughed out loud at your comment. Gary (the husband) is big on trying all the treats we make. In fact, he even tasted the Barksters treats we reviewed awhile back. Our dogs don't seem to care as long as he keeps baking ;-)


Go ahead... bark at us!
