Making dog treats for Boomer is always fun for me! He also is super excited when he realizes that what is coming out of the oven is for him. I also feel like there is no pressure for them to taste good. I want him to like them obviously, but he will still eat them. He is the only person that will eat what I make and not critique it, which is a nice thought for me. That’s what I love about dogs; they are not picky eaters. Well… Boomer can be with his dry dog food. He gets bored with it overtime, or we like to think that maybe he is just watching his weight and doesn’t feel like eating dinner.
A great thing about these dog treats is they do not require that you roll them out and cut them into shapes. They look cute when you cut them into shapes, but in all reality, your dog doesn’t care what shape their food is in. Boomer just cares about how fast and how many he can eat. If you want to, check out the other dog treat recipe for the Pumpkin and Peanut butter dog treats.
These banana peanut butter dog treats may not look that cute, but I promise your dog will love them, and so will you when you see how quickly you can make them. They have dried parsley in them, which is known to help freshen breath.
- 2 Bananas, peeled
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 2 Tablespoons dried parsley
- ½ cup peanut butter
- Preheat oven to 300 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl with a fork mash the bananas. Add the beaten egg. Stir in the peanut butter, parsley, mix until well combined.
- Next, stir in the rolled oats, the mixture will be thick.
- Roll mixture into about 24 balls, using a 1 tablespoon scoop. Transfer to the lined baking sheets. Use the back of a spoon or the bottom of a glass to lightly flatten the cookies down.
- Bake until firm 40 to 45 minutes. Halfway through baking, remove the baking sheet from the oven and flip all of the cookies over.
- Note: you might be able to fit them all on one baking sheets as they will not expand in size much as they bake.
