My Siberian Husky Cannoli loves, loves, loves, Peanut Butter and Bananas; she also love dog biscuits! Well to be fair she’s never met a treat she didn’t love. But Peanut Butter and Banana treats disappear faster than any other treat I make. That’s why she loves these Peanut Butter Banana Doggie Biscuits!
These Peanut Butter Banana Doggie Biscuits are super easy to make, they require just 3 ingredients, 4 if you count water! You can leave them plain or for extra special treats you can ice and decorate them just like human cookies! Except you don’t use a sugar based icing, your pup doesn’t need the sugar and really won’t mind if the biscuits aren’t sweet.
The grandkids and I love decorating cookies but we can’t eat, or really shouldn’t eat, all the cookies we want to decorate, so decorating doggie biscuits is a fun alternative!
You can make Peanut Butter Banana Doggie Biscuits any shape you want, just use the cookie cutter of your choice. Or don’t use a cutter and just make them into squares, believe me whatever shape they are your pooch will still love them!
I like to use metal cookie cutters in the bone and paw shape. I have a set of dog treat cutters by Wilton. But if you prefer you can also use silicone molds. I make my own “doggie royal icing” to frost and decorate with, but you can use Magifrost Dog Treat Icing mix, it’s premade just add water. Or you can just leave them plain without icing.
These Peanut Butter Banana Doggie Biscuits make great gifts to friends with pets. If you ice and decorate them your friends will think you spent a fortune on them at the pet store!
So here’s my recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Doggie Biscuits, they look and taste just like the pricey Gourmet Dog treats!
2 Cups Flour – white or whole wheat
1 Large banana – mashed
1 1/2 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Water +/- depending on dough consistency
Combine flour, banana, and peanut butter in a bowl and start mixing.
Slowly add water until the dough forms into a ball and is not sticky.
If dough is too stiff slowly add more water 1 Tbs at a time.
Knead dough well making sure all the dry ingredients are incorporated into the dough.
Roll out dough to about 1/4″ thickness, cut into desired shapes
Place on parchment covered baking pan and bake in 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until done.
Remove from oven and move on to racks for cooling.
Cool completely before frosting and decorating.
2 Tbs. Corn Starch
1 Tbs water
Put cornstarch in a small bowl and add water.
Stir well, it may become hard, add water 1 Tsp at a time until you get your desired consistency. Icing should be a bit runny and not to thick.
Color if desired.
Icing dries quickly so stir as needed, if it gets too solid add water a bit at a time until it’s liquidy again.
Decorate your biscuits as desired and allow icing to dry.
Store unfrosted biscuits in airtight containers. Iced biscuits should be refrigerated.
