Bake up these healthy, peanutty treats for your good boys and girls.
- Preheat oven to 300°F.
- Put banana in a large boil and use a spoon or potato masher to mash it thoroughly.
- Add oat flour, oats, parsley, peanut butter and egg and stir well to combine. Set aside for 5 minutes.
- Roll mixture into 24 balls, using about 1 tablespoon dough for each; transfer to a large parchment paper-lined sheet tray as done.
- Use the back of a spoon or the heel of your hand to press each ball into a (1 1/2- to 2-inch) coin.
- Bake until firm and deep golden brown on the bottom, 40 to 45 minutes. Set aside to let cool completely.
Storage note: It's best to store these in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Or, freeze them to give to your pal later; just be sure to thaw the treats before handing them out.
