Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats are a cute, delicious treat that your pup is sure to love. And there’s only three ingredients!
I think Punxsutawney Phil may have gotten it wrong this year. Last weekend was absolutely beautiful and aside from a little bit of rain today, it’s supposed to be warm and on Monday, it’ll be near 70°!
Not only am I loving this weather, but Mr. Z is a big fan too. Warmer weather means longer trips to the dog park! Although we are a pretty resilient duo. It takes single digit temperatures to keep us away from the dog park, but give us some warmth and we’ll double our time there. And then he passes out when we get home. Perfect time to make some tasty Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats!
The idea for these treats came pretty easily. Peanut Butter is probably the most popular treat flavor for dogs. If not the most popular, it’s at least one of the most popular. And bananas go great with peanut butter. This pairing also spawned a beautiful muffin recipe – keep your eyes peeled in the near future.
The best thing about these treats? Other than peanut butter and bananas, the only ingredient you need is some flour! I used my go-to – Brown Rice flour. (I’m really wanting to try some Garbanzo Bean flour for Z, I’m just having trouble finding it at a decent price. Has anyone ever used it before?)
Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats are also, in my opinion, the cutest treats I’ve made yet. They actually look like human cookies! I dropped the dough by the tablespoon full (I used my mini cookie scoop) rolled it into a ball and then used a fork to make the crisscross pattern before baking.
These dog treats are so cute and so easy to make! And they tasted pretty good to me too!
Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats
- 1 Banana very ripe
- 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
- 3/4 Cup Brown Rice Flour
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In your stand mixer, blend together the ripe banana and peanut butter. Slowly add the flour until a dough forms.
Using a small cookie scoop, drop the dough onto the cookie sheet. Roll into balls and flatten with a fork to create the crisscross pattern. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool before feeding to your pup.
