Tasty Tuesday : Banana Bites

....Tasty Tuesday...this means food and cooking doesn't it? Is THAT why you made me wear your silly apron again?!
Actually...Mom is REALLY excited about this one, because she LOVES cooking and baking. Actually before she even though of having a dog or having a dog-blog...she had a baking and cooking blog.

Or, well...she tried to have a baking and cooking blog.

It didn't last long for various reasons.

BUT ANYWAY...that's the past. What matter now is the present...and what's happening in the present?

Banana Bites are! 

Here are the ingredients, and the amounts for each one needed under the picture: 


1/2c milk - 1/4c oil - 1/2c. honey - 1 1/4c. flour - 3c. oatmeal - 2 eggs - 2 bananas, mashed
(The above photo is a tad inaccurate...mom got curious about oils for dogs after taking it, and went online to do some quick research. In our recipe we used a light olive oil instead of the above pictured canola!)


Before mashing your banana, be sure to have your dog taste test it for you. YUM!

After getting your stuffs together, you first want to mix all your wet ingredients together (milk, oil, honey, eggs and banana).  It should looks something like this:


All the wet stuffs mixed together!

Then just go ahead and mix in all the remaining dry ingredients (flour and oatmeal) until it makes a nice smooth batter.

Taste test.

Om-nomnom...Mom this is gonna be good!
 Heat your oven to 350*F, get out a baking pan and lightly grease it. Then go ahead and poor the batter into the pan, and spread it evenly.

Ready for the oven to get baked up.

Bake it for 30 minutes. Let it cool on the pan.

You can then cut it into bite-sized squares in the pan, or if you are like Momma flip it out onto a cutting board to be cut there.


Cut squares of yummy!

Then...enjoy!

...is that piece for me, mom? I think it should be...

Ooooh...it's chewy...and so good!

These treats are good for your pawrents, too! IF you feel like sharing them, IF they've given you plenty of belly rubs and ear scratches that day.


Mom always wants to say thank you to all our furiends who have kept her father in their good thoughts. He is doing ok in the hospital. Apparently for some reason the bottom of his stomach has closed up...so things can get in but not not. This is something that has happened in the past, and they had no idea why then. Maybe they can find a reason this time.

    3. Hello Zoe! Sorry for being so late getting back to you, computer problems here at home. The website I got them for does say to store them in the fridge, but it doesn't say for how long they stay good. That just means you need eat them all quick, I guess?
