Looking for a simple grain and dairy-free treat recipe for your dog? Bella has a sensitivity to grain, so we have to avoid it in all the treats and food we give her. Otherwise, Bella’s tummy gets all pink and red, really red.
Here is a great treat I made Bella, and she loves them. I even tried these, and they taste delicious. I would also recommend these for kids if you and your child love peanut butter and bananas.
Here is the most delicious Banana & Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipe…
- Banana: ½
- Peanut Butter: ½ Cup
- Water: 5 Tablespoons
Tools and Utensils
- Medium Mixing Bowl
- Measuring ½ Cup
- Parchment Paper
- Place one ½ ripe banana in a mixing bowl with 5 Tablespoons water (you can add more water as you see fit). Mash the banana until it is almost a creamy texture.
- Add the peanut butter to the banana mixture. Mix everything together thoroughly.
- On a plate lay down a piece of parchment paper.
- Scoop out four cookies onto the parchment paper. When scooping, use the tablespoon in order to have four evenly sized cookies. You will have a little extra batter, add the excess mixture evenly among all four cookies.
- Next, place the cookies into the freezer for two hours or until frozen.
- Share with your dog and watch them scarf these treats down!
Words Of Caution
1. I would only give your dog two of these treats a day. Otherwise, they could get an upset stomach from eating half a banana and half a cup of peanut butter.
2. These treats can get very messy when they melt. So unless you have a dog that inhales everything, be sure to give your dog small pieces of cookie at a time.
3. If you are storing these treats for weeks at a time, place the treats in a freezer bag or storage container.
This snack can really be eaten year-round. It is a sweet snack in the winter to give your dog during the holidays, but it is also a perfect treat during the hot summer months. Be sure to give your dog these treats in small chunks. Because once these cookies start to melt, you could have a real mess on your hands.
