Oat, banana and peanut butter dog treats

So Seymour usually bakes with me and I let him lick my hands when I am done but the flapjack recipe was just too syrupy for doggys so he looked a bit sad.

Well we can’t have that so I decided to try my hand at making him doggy treats.

We had loads of peanut butter and some moldy looking bananas so I looked for a suitable recipe.

I found a few but wasn’t keen on their use of salt or vanila extract (this is a dog not a food reviewer) so I adapted some and I think it worked, he certainly loved them! 

I started with 2 soft bananas and mushed them in a bowl.
I added 3.5 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter (check it is safe for dogs as some are not!), and added an egg.
I mushed them all together.

To the wet mixture I folded in about 12oz of plain flour and 10oz oats.

It didn’t look like it was all going to mix in but it did.

Look at that face! Seymour was looking forward to eating these treats, thats his happy face 🙂

Then roll the mixture in your hands into just bigger than walnut size balls (makes about 28) and place on a baking tray.

Into a pre-heated oven at about 150c, 130c fan for 45 minutes.

When done, leave to cool completely, store in an airtight container for up to a week.

I hope your dog enjoys the treats as much as Seymour did!
