The P.B.B. For K9’s
(Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Treats)
1 mashed banana
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter* (low sodium is a healthier choice for pets)
1 tsp honey
1 ½ cup whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 300ºF. Beat the egg then mix in the peanut butter, mashed banana and honey. Blend thoroughly. Add the flour a little at a time, until mixture is combined evenly.
Dump the dough on a floured board and roll until ¼ inch thick. Using a cookie cutter of your choice, a biscuit cutter or the rim side of a glass, cut the dough into desired shape. Place cookies on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Bake cookies for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. This is an average baking time, larger cookies take longer and smaller or thinner cookies take less time. Cool cookies on a wire rack. Leaving them out overnight will produce a crunchier cookie. Storing them in a sealed container will keep the cookies softer.
Jess wants to remind you that while these cookies are human tested and Pooch approved, no humans were harmed in the baking of these cookies. We hope you enjoy Jess’s Favorite Power Snack for a Hard Working Pup.
