Peanut Butter Banana Carob Treats Your Dog Will Drool For!

I haven't met a dog yet that didn't lick his chops when I serve up this yummy peanut butter carob banana treat.

Why carob chips you might ask? Chocolate is one of many food items on the list of poisonous foods to dogs. But your dog can still enjoy the natural sweetness of carob found in this homemade dog treat recipe.

Peanut Butter Carob Banana Treats

1/2 Cup All Natural Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup Warm Water
1/2 Cup Mashed or Pureed Banana
1 Tbsp. Honey
1 Egg
1 3/4 Cups Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup Carob Chips
Parchment Paper


  1. Mix the peanut butter and warm water in a large bowl with a fork until completely smooth.
  2. Add banana, honey and egg, mix until well blended.
  3. Mix in 1 cup of the flour until well blended. Mix in the carob chips. Then add remaining flour 1/4 cup at a time until a stiff dough forms. Instead of using a spoon to blend the remainder of the flour into the dough,I use my hands, it just seems to work better.
  4. Refrigerate the dough for about 20 minutes before rolling.**

Take cooled dough out and place on a floured surface and roll to desired thickness, about 3/8" or so. Then using a cookie cutter, cut out shapes and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Note: These do not spread like a regular cookie so you can place them fairly close together.

Bake in a 300 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Tip: After I finish cooking, I shut off the oven and leave the dog biscuits in the oven for a couple of hours to make sure they are completely dry and crunchy. This way your home made dog biscuits can be stored for a long time without worrying about them spoiling.

** Or if you don't want to make such a big batch at one time, take the dough and split it in half to make a second ball of dough and with your hands, flatten it as much as possible, place into a freezer bag and freeze. When you need more treats, just thaw, roll, cut and bake. The reason I flatten the dough is because it makes the defrosting time much shorter than if it were in a ball.
