Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats Yields: A lot!
6 ounces of un-drained tuna 1 cup cornmeal 1 cup flour ⅓ cup of water
Instructions Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and blend well. On a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place your dough and roll it out until it is fairly thin, approximately ¼-inch. Bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely, then break the sheet up into bite size treats. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Yields: ~24 biscuits
1 banana, peeled 1 cup oat flour ⅔ cup rolled oats ½ cup dried parsley *optional: substitute half of parsley for dried mint 3 tbsps. all-natural peanut butter 1 egg, beaten
Instructions Preheat oven to 300ºF. Put banana in large bowl and mash using a spoon or potato masher. Add flour, oats, parsley, peanut butter, egg and stir until combined well. Set aside for five minutes. Roll mixture into 24 balls using about one tablespoon of dough. Transfer to a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using the back of a spoon or the heel of your hand, press each ball into a 1½ -2 inch coin. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until firm and deep golden brown on the bottom. Set aside and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. You can also freeze them, but thaw treats before serving.
Peanut Butter & Bacon Dog Treats
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Biscuits
1 cup natural creamy peanut butter ¾ cup nonfat milk 1 large egg (or ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce) 2 cups whole wheat flour 1 tbsp baking powder ⅓ cup oats (either whole-rolled or quick oats are fine) 2-3 strips bacon, chopped
Instructions Preheat oven to 325ºF degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside. In a large bowl, gently mix the peanut butter, milk and egg together with a large spoon or spatula. Switch to a whisk to make sure no lumps remain. Add the flour and baking powder. You may need to turn the dough out onto the counter and use your hands to work in the flour. Mix in the oats and chopped bacon. The dough is extremely thick and heavy. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into ¼-inch thickness. Cut into shapes using cookie cutters or a knife. Arrange on the baking sheets. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until very lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven, and flip the treats to bake the other side for 10-12 more minutes. Allow to cool completely before serving to your pup. Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to one week. Treats freeze well, up to two months.
1 cup pumpkin puree 2 eggs ½ cup oats 3 cups whole wheat flour 3 tbsp all-natural peanut butter ½ tsp cinnamon, optional

Icing Fido’s Frosting Yogurt Royal Icing *available online at k9cakery.com
Instructions Preheat oven to 350ºF. Mix whole wheat flour, oats, and cinnamon together. In a separate bowl mix pumpkin puree, eggs and peanut butter until well combined. Add the pumpkin mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix on low until well combined. Pour mixture onto a floured surface and knead dough into a round disk approximately ¼-inch thick. The dough will be sticky, so keep your rolling pin and surface dusted with flour at all times. Cut treats out using a cookie cutter of your choice. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to prevent sticking and bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Allow the treats to cool down on the baking sheet for at least five minutes before attempting to transfer them to a cooling rack. Decorate your treats with Fido’s frosting yogurt royal icing made specifically for dogs.
