Cook Time
  • 2cups old-fashioned oats (gluten-free)
  • 1.5cups fresh parsley, loosely packed and finely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled
  • 1 large egg, beaten(see below for dogs with egg allergies)
  • 1tbsp coconut oil, melted (unrefined, extra-virgin is best)
  1. Preheat oven to 315°F
  2. Put oats in a food processor and pulse until they are a flour-like consistency. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, carrots and parsley.
  3. In a small bowl, mash the banana with a fork and mix in egg and coconut oil.
  4. Combine banana and flour mixtures and knead. Turn dough onto a surface lightly dusted with flour. Spread out dough and, using a small to medium cookie cutter, cut out treats and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet or non-stick cookie sheet. If you don’t have a cookie cutter, shape dough with your hands into a shape your dog can easily eat.
  5. Bake 30-35 minutes. Wait for them to cool, and let your dog enjoy!
Recipe Notes
