Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

  2. Melt the Peanut Butter in the microwave until it is a liquid, this normally takes about 1 minute at full power.
  3. Peel the two bananas and drop then in with the melted Peanut Butter.
  4. Use a fork to mash the bananas. They do not have to me completely mashed up, but they need to be in very small pieces, no bigger than a chocolate chip.
  5. Mix in the oats and the salt-less chopped peanuts (if you are using them)
  6. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  7. Mix all of the ingredient together using a large spoon.
  8. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  9. Spoon your batter onto the cookie sheet. Try to make each cookie into the size of a quarter if you can, but a bit bigger or smaller is okay. The cookies do not expand when they bake.
  10. Put the dog cookies into the oven and bake for 13-15 minutes. The dog cookies should be somewhat crisp, but not burnt.
  11. Cool them just like you would regular cookies. DO NOT FEED TO PET UNTIL FULLY COOL!!
