Healthy Banana Cookies

  • 3 Ripe Bananas
  • 1.5 Cup Steal Cut Oats

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350°F/145°C.

Makes approx. 30 cookies. Enjoy!  So healthy you and your dog can enjoy them together... that's what Lexy and I do.

Here are a few links to some of our favourite online resources for Homemade Dog Treats

The Dog Treat Kitchen
This is by far my favourite online resource.  Not only do they have amazing recipes for holidays, special diets, allergies, weight loss, health issues, and simply everyday but they also stock a wonderful supply of cookie cutters and molds for purchase.  All recipes are free to download and there's even a chatroom for feedback on the recipes.

Martha Stewart
And yes.. these recipes are 'a good thing'!  There's not too many what the handful they list are all Lexy tested and approved.
If you search her website you can also find some fun crafting ideas for making your own kong or dog food puzzle toy too.

Yes, that's right... the ASPCA lists a few recipes on their page but MOST importantly they list the 'human food' ingredients toxic for dogs.

ASPCA:  Animal Poison Control - People Foods that are Harmful to Dogs
Please read this very important information BEFORE deciding to break from a recipe and add other ingredients.

Modern Dog Magazine
This is a great magazine, online and in print, and has my 'go to' list of 10 Human Foods that are fabulous for dogs and provide added natural nutrients.

*REMEMBER:  It is always advisable to check with your Veterinarian prior to introducing new foods to your dog's diet.
