Peanut Butter Banana Swirl Treats

Peanut butter Banana Swirl Dog Treats

These beautiful dog treats are deceptively simple to make. All you need  is a little time and a couple of hungry good dogs. These treats are 2 simple doughs, one banana one peanut butter, rolled together and sliced. The recipe calls for freezing the dough once it’s rolled to make it easier to slice. I was going to do that, but I decided to chill them wrapped in cellophane overnight. That worked just fine. I was a little worried that the separate colors wouldn’t show up as well as I wanted, but as you can see… they came out beautiful. These are so pretty, I gave many of them away as gifts to friends with dogs, but with Frank and George coming back from awesome dog camp at the end of the week, it may be time to give them another go! My boys loved them!

I am reprinting the recipe here, but I suggest you head over to the site where the recipe originated, there are many other treat recipes there of you to try.

4 cups whole wheat flour

1-1/3 cups water
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 egg

Dough Two:
4 cups whole wheat flour
2/3 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup banana, mashed
1 egg
1-1/4 cups water
2 Tbs vegetable oil
2 Tbs molasses
2 Tbs cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C).
Combine all Dough One ingredients and mix thoroughly. Knead on a lightly floured surface. Set aside.
Combine all Dough Two ingredients and mix thoroughly. Knead on a lightly floured surface.
Roll each dough separately to a 1/8 inch thickness, into rectangles. Lightly brush a little water over the top of the light-colored dough.
Place the darker colored dough on top, then roll up like a jelly roll.
Wrap the roll in plastic and chill in the freezer for one hour. Cut the roll into 1/4 inch slices. Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick spray.
Bake for one hour.
