Making Dog Biscuits

All members of the family deserve a healthy homemade treat -- so . . . 
Hannah Banana Treats
for your best friend.

You need:
6 cups whole wheat flour
6 cups rice flour
10 cups oatmeal - traditional or instant
1 tablespoon baking powder
10 to 12 bananas, mashed
5 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
5 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups lukewarm water
Preheat the oven to 350.
Combine the dry ingredients.
Add the oatmeal to the other dry ingredients.
Then mash the bananas,
and add the wet ingredients.
The hardest part is blending all the ingredients, the dough is very heavy,
it's best to use your hands, turn the dough out onto a counter dusted with flour and add small amounts of water until it is all blended. Divide the dough into portions and roll out to a half inch thickness.
Cut into shapes.
Bake on nonstick baking sheets for 40 minutes.
This makes about 60 biscuits - a whole month's worth!
This recipe is from "Barker's Grub," by Rudy Edalati,
with dinners and treats galore! Enjoy!
Love, Linda


  1. Linda,
    I just saw your recipe --- this is for people? Or for pets? Everything in it is what I use for our breakfast bars, but also add nuts and blueberries. I put a cup of liver in my Dog Biscuits and no molasses or bananas. Then you have to refrigerate them. Interesting!!

  2. I just Pinned this -- must make these for our schnauzer! Thanks much! :)
