Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

96

I don’t always finish off bananas in the house before they over ripen. I like them fresh, just as they turn yellow. I will also freeze them at this stage for smoothies. Once they start to get black spots, I allow them to ripen for a few more days while looking for recipes that use bananas. My go-to is banana nut bread but I thought I would try them in Zu’s treats.

Zu is not really a banana eater. He will eat most fruits and vegetables frozen but he has never really liked bananas. He usually spits it out on the floor and looks to me with that “what else ya got?” look. He can’t turn down peanut butter so it is one of the main ingredients in this recipe.

I choose organic ingredients for all of Zu’s treats.

Use your knuckles to really mash the peanut butter into the dough. I used gloves so my hands won’t be so greasy when using the camera.

Remember to choose natural peanut butter, no salt or sweeteners. Watch out for artificial sweeteners, especially xylitol, as it can be deadly for your pup.

FLOURS:

Oat flour has one of the lowest allergy rates among all breeds of dogs. I use it for most of Zu’s treats. I will substitute with almond flour or coconut flour depending on the recipe. Here are some options.

Grains: Millet, Pea, Buckwheat, Barley, Quinoa, Rice, Spelt

Grain Free: Coconut, Lentil, Potato, Chickpea, Almond

Treats can be stored in an air tight container for 10 days, or freeze them for up to 3 months. I freeze Zu’s. He loves frozen….everything! AND, he really loves these treats!!!
