Hi there! It's Monday, so what are we making today? Well, Dallas and Gizmo have been very upset with me because I have been devoting all my time to making soaps and balms, so today is going to the dogs! Here is a recipe for Banana Poodle Doodles!
Gather all your ingredients;
5 cups flour
1/4 cup peanuts, finely chopped
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup all vegetable oil
1 ½ cups pureed banana
2 tsp. vanilla
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
Place all the dry ingredients into a large bowl and make a well in the center.
Blend the egg, oil and banana all together, then add into the dry ingredients by pouring into the well and begin combining it all together.
Add some water, one teaspoon at a time, as it is needed to make a nice dough.
Once you are mostly mixed and have a dough texture, move your ball onto the table top and begin to knead. You may add more water as needed, but be sure to add only a small amount at one time.
Continue kneading until you have a good dough. Not too wet, not to dry, and everything is mixed thoroughly.
When your dough is right, form it into logs 2" to 2 1/2" high. Flatten so that log is 6" to 7" wide by 1" high. Then place on non-stick baking sheets or on lightly greased ones.
Bake for 30 - 40 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes.
Slice into 1/2" - 3/4" slices. Put back on baking sheets and cook for additional 20 minutes, or until a nice golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Once cooled, store in an airtight container or freeze.
When you freeze treats you need to make sure they are completely thawed before serving to your dog. This can take 60 minutes, but giving a dog a frozen cookie is dangerous, so it should never be done!
