Super quick and easy, using only five ingredients these gluten free, flourless banana and peanut butter dog treats will make their tail wag for sure. We all deserve something special from time to time so why not treat our four legged friends to some yummy homemade treats? This recipe, for a change, is totally flourless. I don’t think that flour in small quantities is necessarily bad for our dogs but a few readers have suggested that they would prefer a flourless recipe, so here you have it… banana and peanut butter mixed with oats… quick, easy and actually rather tasty… yes, I do try all baked goods even the ones designed for my dogs.

As I cook / bake for my dogs, which are way above the so-called standard size and on top of that there are two of them, depending on your circumstances you might want to halve the ingredients… just to make sure your pooch doesn’t end up being over fed with treats as you become fearful of the treats going off. The ingredients as stated below will yield 24 6cm round 1cm deep treats, which are perfect for my large / giant breed but might be way too big for a smaller lap dog type of breed, so please adjust ingredient amounts accordingly.

Lately we have been juicing a lot. All is good but after each session we are left with a lot of pulp and it seems like such a waste to simply pop it into the food bin and we are not naturally born gardeners. So this gave me an idea for “recycling” my carrot, apple or whatever pulp that comes out from my juicer. Adding it into the dog biscuits we were making was a no brainer as a first step… so next on the agenda is a human grade cake 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup carrot pulp
  • 1 cup unsalted smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup organic wholemeal flour
  • 1 egg

Preheat the oven to 160C fan.

Prepare one large baking tray. If you wish, you can line it with some parchment but these cookies do not stick to the tray so that step can be easily skipped.

Pop all ingredients into a mixing bowl and using a silicone spatula mix it well.

After a short while everything will combine and form smooth, easy to play with dough.

Using your hands flatten out the dough in order to cut the desired shape of your finished cookie or if you prefer to do a proper job then use a rolling pin to make sure each cookie is super even in size. Our two dogs don’t care about looks so long as they keep coming, so we opt for the rustic method of rolling.

So I normally use just my hands (less washing up later on) and flatten it out till it is about 1.5cm thick.

While making this batch I’ve had to use a tall slim glass to cut my cookies. The batch ended up yielding 15 pieces.

Once all cookies are cut out or formed into their final shape then place on the baking tray and pop them into the oven and set a timer for 12 minutes (you might need to increase the time to 15 minutes it will all depend on how dry your carrot pulp was and of course your cooker). They should be slightly golden in colour but still a little soft to the touch when pressed.

Once ready remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes on the baking tray. After this time move them onto a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.

Both Lilly and Bunk really liked them so I hope your pooch will enjoy them too.
