Everyone thinks they have the best dog. & none of them are wrong.
Raise your hand if you celebrated mothers day & you only have fur babies? THIS GIRL definitely did!
I am the proud mom of 2 insanely hyper dogs that love to stare at me 24/7, love to give me endless kisses and still follow me even if I only move from the couch to the kitchen. Thats love people, thats love.
In honor of (puppy) Mother’s Day, I treated my pups with the easiest homemade dog treat you will ever make: Oatmeal Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Treats!
They take all of 5 minutes to prep & your dogs won’t be able to get enough of them. I seriously couldn’t get Charlie to stop following me for 45 minutes after I let them have these treats the other night, he was OBSESSED!
Grind the oatmeal up however long you want. You can make it very fine like a powder or leave it a little chunky, its completely up to you!
BAKING TIP: Make sure you allow the oatmeal peanut butter & banana to combine well before removing it from the food processor. It will need to pulse for at least a minute before entirely fusing.
I had a large dog treat shaped cookie cutter so my recipe only yielded 12 treats, you may have more depending on your cutter size.
Charlies face. Priceless.
Good until the last crumb.
Miller was such a professional sitting & patiently waiting for me to take this picture before I let him devour one of the treats.
These Oatmeal Peanut Butter & Banana Dog treats will be a HUGE hit with your fur babies! Whether you use them to help train your puppy or just to tell them you love them, there won’t be a crumb left on the floor after!
- 1 cup oatmeal, old fashioned oats
- 1 banana, medium
- 1/2 cup peanut butter, creamy
- Food Processor
- Baking Sheet (non-stick)
- Rolling Pin
- Cookie Cutter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees while preparing treats
Into a food processor add oatmeal. Pulse until ground to fine powder.
Peel banana & quarter before adding to food processor. Add peanut butter & then pulse until "dough" ball is formed.
Using either a non-stick surface (I used my granite counter top) or a little wheat flour, place dough on surface & roll out. You want a thickness of 1/2-1 inch.
Using cookie cutter, cut out your dog treats & place on non-stick baking sheet or parchment paper.
When all treats cut out, cook in oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown on top.
Allow to cool for at least 5-10 minutes after cooked. Enjoy!
These treats will stay good for 3-5 days in an air tight container (unrefrigerated)
