Treats: Part Two! Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

TGIF! Unfortunately, it’s not really the start of the weekend for me. I’m probably sitting in an RD Prep Class as you’re reading this, bored out of my mind. Bad news is Friday is the first day of the class and I’ll be stuck inside from 8 – 5 Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Exciting weekend, huh?!
As promised, I have the dog treat recipe for today! I decided to make this when I had overripe bananas begging to be used up and I was sick of making banana muffins and banana bread. I’ll definitely be making these again soon; I have 5 more bananas getting riper and riper sitting in the kitchen.
Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats
2 eggs
2/3 cup natural creamy peanut butter
3 medium bananas, mashed
2 tablespoons honey
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup wheat bran
1 egg white, lightly beaten, for brushing
  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Stir together the egg, peanut butter, banana, and honey in a medium bowl; blend thoroughly. Stir in the flour and wheat bran; mix well. Turn dough out onto a floured board and roll to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes with a cookie cutter, place on prepared baking sheet, and brush tops with egg white.
  3. Bake biscuits in preheated oven until dried and golden brown, about 40 minutes, depending on size. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Yup, these treats are definitely puppy approved 🙂
