When your dog eats something that doesn't agree with his or her stomach, you also experience the consequences. This grain-free treat recipe from The Honest Kitchen contributor and Petguide.com Editor Amy Tokic includes everything your dog loves, minus the tummy ache.
Skip the grain and go right for the good stuff with a treat that's grain-free and packed with plenty of nom-noms!
Going grain-free isn't easy. Although there are a larger variety of grain-free food items available on the market, it can be hard to find treats that agree with your dog's tummy. That's why you should give this Banana Peanut Butter Grain-Free Dog Treat Recipe a go.
Not only is it grain-free, but I've also added The Honest Kitchen's Pro Bloom into the mix, which is packed with live culture probiotics and digestive enzymes.
If this is your first time making grain-free treats, you'll notice how the dough doesn't hold together like dough using regular flour. That's because the gluten is the bonding agent in the dough, and there's none in this recipe. Don't worry — just follow the directions below to craft the perfect grain-free dog treat!
- 2 cups coconut flour
1/8 cup flaxseed meal
1/2 cup quinoa flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons The Honest Kitchen Pro Bloom
2 ripe bananas
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
- Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flours, flaxseed, Pro Bloom, and cinnamon). Set aside.
- In a smaller bowl, mix the bananas, peanut butter, vegetable oil, eggs, and water until well combined.
- Mix the wet ingredients slowly into the dry ingredients until combined. The dough will be crumbly, but moist.
- Using your hands, scoop out the mixture and pack together into a fist-shaped ball.
- On a long piece of parchment paper (about the length of your cutting board), place the ball of dough in the middle of the paper.
- Fold one half of the parchment paper over the ball (make sure it's completely covered). Using your rolling pin, gently roll out the ball to 1/4 thickness. Use a cookie cutter to press out shapes and place them on the cookie sheet.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes.
- Remove the treats from the oven and place them on a cooling rack. Keep them in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
