Servings 20 treats (using 6cm dog bone cutter)

Equipment

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Rolling Pin
  • Wooden spoon or spatula
  • Baking tray (I prefer silicone baking trays for more even baking)

Ingredients
  

  • 140 g whole wheat plain flour * see notes below re: alternative flours
  • 100 g peanut butter that doesn't contain Xylitol smooth or crunchy
  • 1 small banana, mashed 70g peeled weight
  • 3 tbsp cold water

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 170°C/150°C fan.
  • Add the whole wheat plain flour, peanut butter and mashed banana to a large mixing bowl.
  • Mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon or spatula. Stir and mash together until well combined and crumbly.
  • Add water a tablespoon at a time, mixing with your hand between each addition until you have a smooth dough. If it's crumbly and not holding together well, add a tablespoon more water. If it feels too sticky and wet, add a tablespoon more flour.
    You may need more or less water than stated depending on the temperature and conditions of your kitchen, so add it slowly until you reach the right consistency!
  • Flour a rolling pin and a work surface and place your ball of dough on top.
  • Roll out the dough until it is around 1/2 cm thick.
  • Cut out shapes with your chosen cookie cutters! Using this 6cm long bone cutter, I manage to get around 20 dog treats from this dough.
  • Place your biscuit shapes onto your baking tray. They don't really spread in the oven so you don't need to leave a lot of space between them.
    Bake for 10-11 minutes until lightly golden. If you've used a cookie cutter that is larger than 6cm long, the biscuits will take a few minutes longer to bake. If you used a smaller cutter, they will need slightly less time to bake.
    Watch them closely until they appear golden brown on the tops and sides to know they are baked.
  • Leave the baking tray on your countertop for 5 minutes as they will continue to bake on the hot tray.
  • After 5 minutes, remove the biscuits and place them on a wire rack to cool completely.
  • These dog treats will keep well in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, and keep well in the freezer for 4-5 months.

Notes

  • You can substitute whole wheat plain flour with white plain flour, I just prefer to use whole wheat flour as it contains more nutrients than white plain flour. They should also be easier for your dog to digest using whole wheat flour.
  • You can also use alternative flours such as coconut flour or almond flour, though you may need more or less water than stated. Add water a tablespoon at a time until your dough is the right consistency; soft and smooth, not crumbly or sticky!
