Anybody that follows our blog knows that we’re total dog lovers. Both of our dogs are spoiled rotten! My friend Jen (also a dog lover and mom to Roxi) bought me a cookbook called Cooking For Your Dog and I’m looking forward to trying out lots of homemade stuff for the pups. It’s about time we’ve included something on our blog for the canines!
We tried these treats within a few days of getting the book. They were so easy! I like this recipe for a couple of reasons. For one they’re ordinary ingredients that we always have on hand and two they’re healthy. Even though I don’t make our dog food from scratch, it is a good feeling to know exactly what my dog is eating. I’m very careful about what brands of food and treats she eats. She’s like my kid and I want her to be healthy :-/
These treats are dog tested and approved. Macee and Juno scarfed them down fast. And as I’m writing this post I think Macee knows she’s the topic of conversation because she’s sitting here so pretty and waiting for one of these banana treats. Gotta run!
2 2/5 cups whole wheat flour
2/5 cup skim milk
1 pureed banana
1 tablespoon corn syrup
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix together the whole wheat flour, milk, egg, banana and corn syrup until you form a dough. Roll out the dough on a floured work surface to ½ inch thickness and form them treats with a cookie cutter.
Place the treats on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes.
