All Natural Doggie Treats

Hello my awesome friends!

As promised, here is the recipe for the doggie treats that I put on Facebook Live earlier this week.

Brownie loves the treats we find at the store, but they do make her gain weight.  So I went on a hunt for an all natural, great tasting treats.  She loved them and I’m sure your doggie will too.

These are ingredients that most people already have in their kitchen that can be used to make their treats, like these three simple ingredients: Oatmeal, Banana and Peanut Butter.  

-Oatmeal is a great for older dogs and an alternative for pets that are allergic to wheat.

-Bananas are as good for dogs as they are for humans, with lots of potassium and magnesium

-Peanut Butter is a great source of protein, Vitamin B & E

We started with some uncooked oatmeal and grind it into a powder form in my NutriBullet using the milling blade.  I simply mashed the banana in a glass bowl using a fork then added the peanut butter.  Then just mixed by hand, yes the old fashion way. LOL!  However, you could put it into a stand mixer until smooth, before adding in the grind oatmeal.

Marcus and I rolled out and cut the dough using cute pet themed cookie cutters.  We placed all of the treats on a baking sheet and stuck it in the oven for 15 minutes, until the edges started to brown.

Brownie was crying from the smell of these yummy treats while they were baking.  We gave her a teaser with some of the dough. 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked Oatmeal
  • 1 large Banana
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter

 Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Using a food processor or blender, grind your oatmeal until its powdered.
  • In a bowl, mix together the banana and peanut butter until smooth. A few small chunks of banana here and there is ok. The dough should stick together, but shouldn't be sticky.
  • Put flour on the counter to prevent dough from sticking and roll your dough to about a 1/4 inch thickness.
  • Cut into desired shapes and place on a cookie sheet.
  • Bake treats for approximately 15 minutes, or until the edges start to brown.
  • Cool completely before storing in an airtight container for up to a week.

Quick note: Add additional peanut butter if the dough is too dry or additional oatmeal if too sticky.

We hope that your doggies love these as much as Brownie did!  We would love to hear back on your experience.
