Want to make your own dog biscuits?
Lenyx and Zelda LOVE the ones I make myself and they always get these when they go into their crate at night. I make a large batch and they will last easily 3 months or so.
The amounts are a bit guestimated, you can play around with it.
6 Bananas (mashed)
1 cup of smooth peanutbutter (without xylitol)
2/3 cup of coconut oil melted
2.5 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of wholemeal flour
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (optional)
1 tsp turmeric (optional)
Preheat oven to 180/200 degrees.
Line a few baking tins with baking paper (I use 4).
Melt the coconut oil until liquid
Melt the peanutbutter until a bit more liquid, easier to manage
Mash the 6 bananas
Grab a large bowl and put in the mashed bananas, the oats, peanutbutter and coconut oil. Mix together with a wooden spoon.
Start adding wholemeal flour
Combine until it turns into a dough type mixture. If it is really sticky add more oats/flour. Is it really dry and crumbly, add more coconout oil or peanutbutter.
Add a bit of apple cider vinegar and turmeric if you want.
Once all combined into a good dough that doesn't stick to your hands roll it out with a rolling pin onto the kitchen bench.
Use cookie cutters if you want pretty cookies, or a knife if you don't mind crooked cookies. if you use a knife I just roll out a big patch of the dough and divide it into horizontal lines of about 4 cm high and then make vertical cuts in it to create a square or a rectangle sized biscuit.
Put the cookies on the baking tray and put them into the oven until they start to crisp up on the edges. I generally put 2 trays in the oven and by the time I'm finished with filling up the next 2 trays the ones in the oven are done. I would estimate around 10-15 min each.
Slide them into a container and leave the container open until biscuits are cooled down. They will harden up as they are getting colder.
Voila! Healthy, no preservatives, no added sugar cookies for your dog!
