Doggie Cookie Treats

Peanut Butter & Banana Carob Chip Cookies

2-3 very ripe bananas
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup canola or olive oil
2 cups old fashioned (large flake) or quick oats
1/4 cup sesame or sunflower seeds
2 tbsp ground flaxseed (optional)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/2 cup carob chips

Preheat Oven to 350*F

In large bowl mash bananas & peanut butter & oil. Add oats, sesame seeds, flaxseed, baking powder, cinnamon & salt, stirring until well blended; add carob chips & stir until well mixed. Let stand for about 20 min., allowing oats to absorb some of the liquid.

Drop by the spoonful (big or small) according to size of your dog, onto baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray or lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-14 minutes until set. Cool completely.

Yields approx. 2 dozen cookies

I opted for the dryer cookie, so I had added just a bit over 1 cup of Whole Wheat Flour to the mixture, baking in a parchment paper glass 9x13 glass dish for 15 minutes.  Once baked, I cut into small bars, placed on a parchment lined cookie sheet to go back into a 250*F oven for another hour.
