This free peanut butter dog treat recipe is perfect for puppies.
Any dog with a taste for banana or PB is going to love this dog treat. Which pet can resist such a yummy tasting treat?
This recipe makes a soft biscuit treat. The dough is quite soft, but holds a shape made by a cookie cutter well.
If you make the dog treat recipe with rice flour instead of wheat germ, then it makes a great wheat-free treat. So even dogs with allergies can enjoy it.

This recipe is loved by my dog Luigi - and all his doggy friends!
Don't tell him, but this is a great way to use up a banana that is going brown - they mash much easier when they are soft. I usually use smooth peanut butter for this recipe because the peanuts add the crunch. But crunchy PB works just as well.
