Banana Cinnamon Cookies
Trying to teach your dog a few new tricks? Try perking your pup’s interest with these flavorful Banana Cinnamon Cookies!
Many dogs love bananas and why not, they are delicious and packed full of goodness as well. Bananas are a good source of potassium, manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin C, fiber, biotin and copper. Bananas are also low in cholesterol. They are good for dogs, but in moderation. Dogs should only eat bananas as a treat, due to the high sugar content. I also added some wholesome oats for added protein and fiber, flax meal for omega 3 fatty acids, coconut oil for healthy coat and skin, and a touch of cinnamon to get those salivary glands fired up!
- 1 small banana
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tablespoons flax meal
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup organic all-purpose flour (more or less as needed)
Preheat oven to 350ᵒF
In a large bowl, add banana and mash until smooth.
Add applesauce, coconut oil, and cinnamon; mix until blended.
Add oats and flax meal and blend in.
Slowly add flour knead until dough is firm and not sticky.
On a pastry board or piece of wax paper, sprinkle a little flour and roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thick.
Use a 2 inch cookie cutter in whatever shape you like; I chose hearts for my love of dogs!
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place treats on the paper.
Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes (depending on size of treats).
Remove and allow to cool.
Store in an airtight container or zip lock bag and refrigerate up to one week.
