Bana-nutter Biscuits

"This simple dog biscuit recipe can be made in no time at all in just one bowl with only 4 ingredients and a wooden spoon! You can cut them into any shapes that you like. These homemade peanut butter banana dog treats are biscuits your dog will love!"



Bana-nutter Biscuits

Servings – 20 cookies - using a 3" cutter Prep Time – 15 Minutes Cook Time – 11 Minutes Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat plain flour, see note

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter that does NOT contain Xylitol smooth or crunchy

  • 1 small banana, peeled and mashed

  • 3 tbsp cold water

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350°F


Add the whole wheat plain flour, peanut butter and mashed banana to a large mixing bowl.


Mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon or spatula. Stir and mash together until well combined and crumbly.


Add water a tablespoon at a time, mixing with your hand between each addition until you have a smooth dough. If it's crumbly and not holding together well, add a tablespoon more water. If it feels too sticky and wet, add a tablespoon more flour.

You may need more or less water than stated depending on the temperature and conditions of your kitchen, so add it slowly until you reach the right consistency!


Flour a rolling pin and a work surface and place your ball of dough on top.


Roll out the dough until it is around 1/2" thick.


Cut out shapes with your chosen cookie cutters! Using this 3" long bone cutter, I was able to get around 20 dog treats from one batch. Of course I had to double the recipe!


Place your biscuit shapes onto your baking tray. They don't spread in the oven so you don't need to leave a lot of space between them.


Bake for 10-11 minutes until lightly golden. If you've used a cookie cutter that is larger than 63" long, the biscuits will take a few minutes longer to bake. If you used a smaller cutter, they will need slightly less time to bake. Watch them closely until they appear golden brown on the tops and sides to know they are baked.


Leave the baking tray on your countertop for 5 minutes as they will continue to bake on the hot tray.


After 5 minutes, remove the biscuits and place them on a wire rack to cool completely.


These dog treats will keep well in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, and keep well in the freezer for 4-5 months. If they last that long!


Notes:


You can substitute whole wheat plain flour with white plain flour, I just prefer to use whole wheat flour as it contains more nutrients than white plain flour. They should also be easier for your dog to digest using whole wheat flour.


You can also use alternative flours such as coconut flour or almond flour, though you may need more or less water than stated. Add water a tablespoon at a time until your dough is the right consistency; soft and smooth, not crumbly or sticky!

"This recipe is a keeper. They might last a little longer if the dog doesn’t keep chasing me around for more when I bake them!"
