Peanut Butter Banana Yum Yums

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups old fashioned oats, or more, as needed

2 ripe bananas, mashed

1/4 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine oats, bananas, peanut butter and coconut oil. Add an additional 2 tablespoons oats at a time just until the dough is no longer sticky.

3. Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out desired shapes and place onto the prepared baking sheet.

4. Place into oven and bake until the edges are golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.*

5. Let cool completely.

*Baking time will vary depending on the size and thickness of the treats. Serving size will also vary depending on the desired shapes and cookie cutters used.

Diabetic-Friendly Treats

Liver Snaps

Ingredients:

2 eggs

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1 1/2 pounds beef liver, cut into pieces

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 10×15 inch jellyroll pan with parchment paper.

2. Place the liver into a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. If you have room, add the flour and eggs, and process until smooth. Otherwise, transfer to a bowl, and stir in the flour and eggs using a wooden spoon. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.

3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the center is firm. Cool, and cut into squares using a pizza cutter. The treats will have a consistency similar to a sponge. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

Savory Treats

Sausage Roll Treats

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup grated raw potato

2/3 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

1/2 cup (or 4 oz.) sausage, low sodium

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

3 tbsp canola oil

1 egg, lightly beaten

Raw, shelled, and unsalted pumpkin seeds, optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F
    1. Wash and dry the potatoes. Grate them with a fine grater, including the skin.
    1. In a medium bowl, stir the potatoes, pumpkin, and sausage. Be sure to really mix these three ingredients together as they have a tendency to clump together.
    1. Once thoroughly combined, add the flour, oil, and egg.
    1. In the bowl, knead all the ingredients until combined.
    1. Lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick baking spray.
    1. Using a 1 inch cookie scooper, scoop and flatten each pumpkin dog cookie. Or, you can leave them in a cute little rounded cookie shape.
    1. If you are using the pumpkin seeds, now is the time to decorate with them.
    1. Bake for 25 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave them for 2 hours.

*Completely cool before serving to your dog.
