Ever wondered can dogs eat bananas? This simple 3-ingredient dog treat recipe for your furry friend is inspired by homemade banana bread. This recipe for soft dog treats is perfect for dogs that require a softer treat but are actually delicious enough that humans can eat them too. (Of course, the humans around here dip them in maple syrup for themselves. No maple for the dogs though!)
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
3 peeled bananas, ripe is best for flavor, but our dogs don’t care if they are ripe or not
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a food processor combine the rolled oats and peeled banana. Pulse until combined, but the oats still have some texture. Add the eggs and process until completely incorporated.
If you won’t use all of the treats within 5 days, freeze any extra treats and thaw as needed.
Substitutions: You can substitute oat flour for old-fashioned oats. 2 1/2 cups of oat flour equals approximately 3 cups of oats. The treats won’t have the same texture as ours, but will still be delicious.
Serving suggestions: Serving size will vary from 2-3 treats per day for small dogs to 6-8 treats per day for larger dogs.
Storage solutions: This recipe makes quite a few treats. Any fresh baked treats you won’t use in 3 days time freeze and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months. You can take out as many as you need for a few days at time to thaw.
