These dog treats are ridiculously easy to make and there are so many adorable cookie cutters out there they are sometimes more fun to make than sugar cookies. They use the banana on the counter you would normally throw away and stay fresh for weeks! Our dog, Ripley, literally goes insane when he sees us rolling out the dough. Every day when we get home from school the girls raid the pantry, I raid the fridge and Ripley waits by the hall closet where we keep these hidden with his paw in the air ready to "shake." Time to break out the food processor and try a batch....once you see how good and easy they are you can order the fire hydrant cookie cutter to step up your dog treat game.

1 soft banana
¼ cup water
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups flour plus more for rolling out
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a food processor (or blender) mix the banana with the egg and water until mixed.
Add peanut butter and pulse a few more times to combine.
Add flour slowly and pulse to form a dough.
Dough should not be sticky but also not dry, It should feel like play dough.
I usually kneed it a few times before I roll it out to make sure everything is coming together and incorporated.
Sprinkle your work surface with flour and roll our your dough with a rolling pin.
Use cookie cutters to create any kind of dog treats for your pooch.
Lie on parchment lined baking sheets and bake for 20-25 minutes or until hard but not burned. They can be flipped half way through cooking.
Dog treats will stay good in a Ziploc bag for a few weeks or until they disappear and you have to make more!
