When I am cooking you can always find Brody in the kitchen. ALWAYS. He loves all vegetables and fruits and has a particular soft spot for tomatoes. He is my little furry foodie! The only thing he ever turns his nose up to are leaves. Basil leaves, spinach leaves, lettuce…it doesn’t matter what kind. It must be a texture thing, like me and oysters. 😛  Besides tomatoes, Brody’s favorite thing to eat is peanut butter. So when I had a banana way past it’s prime, I thought I would make him some homemade dog treats. He would enjoy them way more then we would enjoy another loaf of banana bread!

These were extremely easy to put together. The original recipe tells you to roll them out and then cut them into shapes like you would sugar cookies. There were a couple problems with that. First, the dough was not a good dough to roll out. It was extremely sticky. Second, umm Brody gobbled one of these down without taking a second glance at it. I think he could care less if they were in the shape of a bone or hydrant!   Fair warning though, if you do not make them into shapes…warn your spouse that they are for the four legged only! Jorge grabbed one while I was showering and proceeded to tell me my cookies tasted like crap. LOL 🙂  However, they would be good for humans too if you added a cup of sugar to them!!

    Hi, going to try these this morning. Going to process the oats and use wheat germ. Will let you know what the doggos think 🙂 Thank you

    Anyone making this recipe or others with peanut butter, please make sure your peanut butter doesn’t contain Xylitol!

    ‘Xylitol, a sweetener used in many foods, including peanut butter, yogurt, toothpaste and chewing gum, is safe for humans but potentially deadly for dogs. If ingested, it can cause seizures, liver failure and death, warned one animal hospital, which called xylitol “extremely toxic” to dogs’

    I enjoy your website and your blog. Its always good to see another animal lover out there but [I’m just saying this out of love] that not all veggies, fruits and foods are good for dogs. Tomatoes are one of them. Avocados, Chocolate, Grapes, Rasins, Salmon, onions, garlic, Salt, Caffeine, Coconut oil or water, Citrus, Xylitol and diet sugars…..etc.  Please check with your ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center or your veterinarian. Some of these can cause major damage to a dogs health in the long term and even death.  Please be careful.

    I made this for Jasper my Goldendoodle and Lucy my Beagle. Both of them loved them. Mine are darker because I used a toasted wheat germ so I might try plain flour next time. Was wondering what you mean by old fashioned oats? I used large flake this time but next time might use quick oats because they are smaller. No matter what, I will make these again.
