I’ve been so busy with house projects lately that it’s taken time away from cooking share-worthy meals. I always find time to cook for my spoiled dog though! So this week I’m sharing my latest recipe for gluten free dog treats that have carrot, banana and peanut butter in them. My dog isn’t picky so I can’t promise you that yours will love them but I can say that Abby has been sitting in front of her treat jar several times a day and begging for these treats. I should probably stop giving in to her adorable face 😉
I had all of the ingredients already at home for these gluten free dog treats which made this recipe extra simple. *Some of the links below are affiliate links, meaning, at no additional cost to you, I will make a commission if you click through and make a purchase.
Gluten Free Flour
Peanut butter (Make sure that it doesn’t contain xylitol because it is deadly to dogs!)
Chicken Bone Broth (or just Chicken broth or stock will do)
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup shredded carrots
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 2 cups gluten free flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, mash the banana.
Add 1/2 cup of shredded carrot and mix.
Add the egg and mix.
Add 1/3 cup of peanut butter and mix.
Add 1/4 cup of chicken broth and mix.
Add 2 cups of gluten free flour and mix all ingredients together.
Roll out the dough and use a cookie cutter to cut out treat shapes
Bake treats on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until the treats are light brown and hard.
One piece of advice is to spread some of the gluten free flour on your baking mat to prevent the dough from sticking.
I use a cute bone cookie cutter for all of my dog treats. you can purchase one here from amazon if you’re interested in buying one of your own. trust me though, your dog will love them even if they aren’t shaped like a store bought dog treat.
I was able to get 14 XL bones out of this recipe. If you don’t have a giant dog like me and use a smaller cookie cutter you may need to reduce your baking time. Here they are all lined up on the cookie sheet before they went into the oven.
They came out the perfect texture and hardness once they cooled. I store them in the personalized dog treat jar that I made for Abby. Since they do not include any preservatives they won’t last as long as the boxed store bought treats. I wouldn’t recommend keeping them for more than a week. You could always freeze some if you make a batch that is too large for your dog(s) to eat in a week.
And when they finally cooled off… first a sniff test. Yup, it smells good.
Now time for noms.
A few of my readers have asked for a gluten free dog treat recipe so I hope that you enjoy this one. I know that Abby sure did!
I’d love to hear what you think of this recipe if you give it a try!
