Banana Bones

Please sir, may I have some more

I love bananas!! I think most of my puppy friends love them too.  We tried these today! For a healthy recipe make sure you use canola oil.  These are meant to be given once a day as a special treat.  They can be fattening...I still have a svelt figure, but I watch my calories too.

4 Cups whole wheat flour
2 Cups Grape Nuts cereal
2 Cups mashed banana (apprx. 5)
3/4 Cup water
2 Tbsp Vegetable oil
2 Tbs. honey
Put all ingredients in a large bowl, mix to combine.  This is a fairly stiff dough.  Use the whole wheat flour to roll your dough out onto it about a 1/4 inch thick.  Cut out with cookie cutters in bone shapes, kitties, fire hydrants..

Mash up ripe bananas - I used 4

Place cookies on ungreased foil-lined baking sheets.  (I used parchment paper and it worked perfect)  Bake in preheated oven for 325 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.  Makes 5 to 6 dozen cookies...

Roll out the dough about 1/4 inch thick

Cut out your treats

Be sure and share your cookies with your neighbors and family :o)

This is a huge recipe, I made two pans of cut out bones, as well as one pan of rolled out dough I cut into little squares, and then even had left overs for 6 more little ones I rolled up into balls and flattened.

This recipe called for nutmeg, however I thought I would do a little research and it turns out nutmeg is NOT good for pups, so please be careful when adding spices to your recipes...do your research too :o)

Did you know....bananas are ok for dogs, but only give a few bites of raw bananas, as too much can stop them up a bit.  Everything in moderation  :ob
