Natural Dog Treat Recipe: Banana PB Bones

Our good friend Tico wasn't feeling too good today.

Tico pit bull, dog treat recipe

He tore off his nail and had to wear his cone of shame (which was probably worse than the torn nail) so we decided to bake him up some doggie bones.

Today, we made Banana Peanut Butter Bones: 

1 organic banana mashed

1/4 c. natural peanut butter

3/4 c. water

2 c. organic whole wheat flour

1 egg This recipe is so easy. Just mix up all the ingredients, and then kneed the dough until it is stiff. Then roll out with a rolling pin to 1/2 inch thickness and use cookie cutters to cut whatever shape suits your fancy 😉 Auggie and I are on a bone kick, so we made all bones.

Bake for 45 minutes on 350 and let dry for about an hour and tada! Beautiful Banana Peanut Butter Bones.

Then we made a little care package for Tico.

Kinda looks like the packaging from our Lazy Dog Treats — but really it is a recycled black berry container and stickers from Auggie's scrap booking kit ; )

Of course my Piggie was waiting and watching the whole time to make sure I wasn't giving them ALL to Tico.

Roll the dough out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut out bones with a cookie cutter. (or any shape you want, Auggie also made 2 carrots and 1 pig)

Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 F for 30 minutes. They won't spread so you can put the bones pretty close to each other.

Turn the oven off and let the cookies harden in the oven for another 30 minutes or so and then pop them on the cooling rack.

"Fine, you first Pig," said Auggie.

This is definitely one of my favorite dog treat recipes, the bones bake up pretty hard which is great for their teeth, and they are super fun and easy for me to make. If the dough feels too stiff to roll out, just add a touch of water.

Pups will beg for more of these wholesome dog treats!

Ingredients
Makes about 2 dozen

* 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
* 1/2 cup wheat germ
* 1/2 cup brewer's yeast
* 2 teaspoons salt
* 3 tablespoons canola oil
* 1 1/2 cups homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Combine flour, wheat germ, brewer's yeast, and salt in a large bowl. Place canola oil in a large bowl. Add flour mixture to oil in 3 additions, alternating with 1 cup stock; mix until combined.

2. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface for 2 minutes (dough will be sticky). Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out rounds using a 2-inch fluted cutter (bakedeco.com). Transfer to baking sheets. Make an indentation toward the bottom of 1 circle using your thumb, then press dough to make an arch of 4 small circles on top of the thumbprint using the tip of your pinky. Repeat with remaining rounds. Freeze for 15 minutes. Bake for 20 minutes, rotating sheets and lightly brushing with remaining 1/2 cup chicken stock halfway through. Turn oven off, and let stand in oven for 40 minutes.

Helpful Hint
Dog treats can be stored at room temperature for up to 1 month.

We are going to try these out this weekend! Let us know if you try them too!

Dog Treat Recipe : Organic Molasses Chip

I love to bake but sadly I am the only one in the house who ever eats sweets. In an effort to trim up for summer, I am going turn this boat around and put my energies to baking my dogs yummy treats (because they totally don't care about their waste lines ;) 

I'm going to try and bake the most healthy treats I can find for them though and will share my recipes on my blog weekly. 

I don't know about you, but I  am one of those dog moms that will not give my dog treats unless the package says "natural" or  "organic" and if I can't pronounce the indigents then they aren't getting them. I love making the dogs treats because then I KNOW for sure each and every ingredient that goes into them is totally natural and organic (if I can get it).

So even though these Molasses Chip Dog Treats have a lot of sugar in them, I think these treats are way more healthy than any you can buy the grocery store as they are preservative free and don't contain chemicals!

So here's to week one: Molasses Chip Doggie Treat Recipe

organic natural dog treat recipie ingredients 

3 c flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

1 c molasses

1 c canola oil

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon pure organic vanilla extract

1 12-ounce package carob chips (you can get these at Whole Foods) 

Preheat oven to 350 F

Then grab a small bowl and mix the baking powder and flour together and set aside.

In a larger bowl, whisk together the molasses and oil. Then whisk in the eggs and vanilla.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients and stir in the carob chips. 

Next drop the dough in round shapes onto the cookie sheet. I used a small ice cream scoop and that worked well because the batter is VERY wet and sticky.

Then bake 12-14 minutes. The smell is awesome, it got me in the mood to eat cookies too! 

Cool the cookies on a rack…

Then dig in right on your mom's white carpet!

Good thing my friend Tracy likes me and her pugs so much or she might have cried. Her carpets had just been cleaned and her pug Zack just couldn't wait to chomp his cookie ;)  Now if that isn't a testament to how good these treats turned out, then I don't know what is.

Happy Dog Treat Baking!
