Earlier in the week I made some fantastic Banana Crumble Muffins but I still had lots of of bananas left sooooo I decided to make treats for the dog instead of more muffins to stuff my own face with.
These were definitely a hit with the pup. Easy recipe. Made lots of treats. Since these do have fresh ingredients you have to freeze the unused portions until you are going to feed them to the dog.
Banana Treats (adapted from www.dogaware.com)
1/4 c. sunflower oil
1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. milk
2 or 2 1/2 mashed bananas
3 c. oats
1 1/4 flour
Blend first 5 ingredients together well. Add flour and oatmeal gradually. Spread mixture on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake f0r 25 minutes at 325 degrees.
After baked and cooled I used a pizza cutter to slice these up into little snacks.
I also made some Peanut Butter Treats since they are also super-simple and are a big hit with any dog (what dog doesn't love peanut butter?).
