Want to make your dog berry happy? Bake up a batch of Strawberry Banana Dog Treats!
I know I’ve been all over the berries the past few weeks, but I want to take advantage of the berry bounty while the picking is good! And if you’re like me, you’ll want to make a batch of my Strawberry Banana Dog Treats. I did a little something extra with these cookies – I was feeling creative, so I decided to decorate them with dog-friendly icing (touched with a pink hue). With or without the icing, your dog will think these treats are berry delicious!
Strawberry Banana Dog Treat Recipe
Makes 30-40 cookies
2 cups whole wheat flour
¼ cup wheat germ
¼ cup corn meal
¼ oat flour
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 cup strawberries
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- In a blender or food processor, add banana and strawberries, and puree until smooth. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine flours, wheat germ and corn meal.
- Add coconut oil and peanut butter to dry mix and stir well.
- Add fruit puree and combine into dough. Use your hands to knead the dough – it should be moist but not sticky. Add water is dough it too dry, or flour is too moist.
- Place dough onto a flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about ¼-inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut out cookies and place on cookie sheets.
- Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
- Take cookies out of oven and let cool on cooling racks. Store in air tight container in refrigerator or freezer.
This time around, I got to break out my special Paw It Forward cookie cutter! If you want one of your own, you can buy it for $5 via their online store.
