The ripe banana offers a delicious sweetness, while the peanut butter provides a satisfying, protein-rich crunch. This recipe includes oats, a great source of fibre and other nutrients.
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 cup of oats
- 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
- Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C).
- Mash the banana in a bowl.
- Mix in the oats and peanut butter until well combined.
- Roll the mixture into small balls and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
- Bake for about 15-20 minutes.
- Allow them to cool before giving them to your dog.
- Bananas are a good source of potassium, manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin C, fibre, biotin, and copper. They are low in sodium and cholesterol, but due to the sugar content, bananas should be given as a treat, not part of your dog’s main diet.
- Peanut butter is a great source of protein and healthy fats for dogs, and it’s a favourite treat of many. Make sure to use a natural peanut butter that does not contain xylitol, as it’s extremely poisonous to dogs.
- Oats are an excellent source of soluble fibre, which can be especially beneficial for senior dogs with bowel irregularity issues. They are also a great alternative source of grain for dogs that are allergic to wheat.
Remember, always consult your vet if you’re unsure about introducing new foods to your dog’s diet.
If you’re looking to substitute oats in your dog treat recipe, there are several alternatives you can consider. One of the most common substitutes is flour. You can use rice flour and coconut flour too.
