 Banana Oatmeal Dog Treats

Meet my dog Jake.  Like most dogs, he loves treats.  He especially loves peanut butter.  He’s a sweet, lovable dog.  A fierce protector..well actually, his bark is bigger than his bite.  But, I think if push came to shove he would give his life for us.  A few weeks ago, we thought we were going to lose him.  He was lethargic, couldn’t move, and throwing up.  Did you know a dog has similar symptoms for old age and food poisoning?  Thankfully, it was a case of food poisoning, although, we never found out what he ate.   We suspect a mushroom because we have lots growing in our woods but we’re not sure.
Jake is about 13 years old.  So it’s important to me to feed him the best nutrition I can.
These banana oatmeal dog treats are easy to make.  Use mint or parsley as a natural breath freshener.  Give this a try and see what your pooch thinks.

  • 1 c Oat Flour
  • 1 Peeled Banana
  • 1/2 C Rolled Oats
  • 3 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp dried parsley or mint
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

I didn’t have oat flour on hand so I ground oats in my bullet.

Once ground up, mix in the rolled oats. Roll mixture into 24 balls.  Place on cookie sheet and press each ball into a 2 inch coin.  Bake approx. 20 min. until firm or golden brown on bottom.  Cool and store in an air tight container.
They smell delicious. Your pooch will be begging for more banana oatmeal treats.
