Peanut Butter & Banana Treats (for the dogs)

Jon and I baked some homemade treats for our dog, Lola; she loved them so much, I thought I'd share the recipe!

  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups natural peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 cups bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 5 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 5 egg whites, lightly beaten for brushing
Preheat oven to 300 degrees, grease baking sheet.
In a medium bowl stir together eggs, banana, peanut butter, and honey. In a large bowl stir together flour, wheat germ, and oats. When the dry ingredients are mixed well, pour the wet mixture into the flour mix, stirring until fully blended (if you aren't using a hand mixer, it may be easiest to mix the ingredients together by hand once they're semi-blended together).

Cover a flat surface in flour and roll a large lump of dough out to a 1/4 inch thick. Cut out into shapes -dog bone shaped cookie cutters work awesomely!

Place the cut out shapes on a greased baking sheet and brush them with egg whites. Bake 'til browned, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack... Once cooled, serve up dessert for your furry loved ones! :)

Please feel free to share this recipe with your dog lover friends! 


  1. Lola is adorable (those ears!), and I think those biscuits look delicious. I kind of want to eat one myself, is that weird?

  2. Thanks! My curiosity got the best of me and I tried one.. it needed sugar, lots of it!! :)
