- Melt the Peanut Butter in the microwave until it is a liquid, this normally takes about 1 minute at full power.
- Peel the two bananas and drop then in with the melted Peanut Butter.
- 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.
- Mix in the oats and the salt-less chopped peanuts (if you are using them)
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Mix all of the ingredient together using a large spoon.
- Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- 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.
- Put the dog cookies into the oven and bake for 13-15 minutes. The dog cookies should be somewhat crisp, but not burnt.
- Cool them just like you would regular cookies. DO NOT FEED TO PET UNTIL FULLY COOL!!
- Once cool store in the refrigerator. If you do not store them if the fridge they will go bad in about two to three days; in the fridge they will be good for about two to three weeks.
- Give the treat to your dog, but don't give him/her too many because some dogs can get diarrhea from too much banana.
