Banana bombs

Banana bombs

Simple to make, meat free dog treats!

I thought a vegetarian dog treat without using liver or meat would make a nice change so I thought I’d try banana alongside peanut butter and honey to make recipe I call Banana Bombs!  These dog treats are great, they have a hard crusty shell which makes them excellent to carry around but moist and bready inside and packed with flavour!  Dogs love them!

After making them I took some with me while I went out dog walking.  Ruffles the Lhasa apso loved his and I even got plenty of attention from other people’s dogs who could smell them in my bag.  So that’s a big paws up for them already!

Ingredients

  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Bananas
  • 200g (1 cup) of Peanut Butter
  • Squirt of Honey
  • 200g (1 cup) of Wholemeal Flour
  • 200g (1 cup) of Cornflour

  1. We have tried the deep fried peelings – dogs and humans pronounced them very tasty!

    Currently have Banana Bombs in the oven – smelling good, but it would be helpful if you could indicate top, middle or bottom of the oven.

    Could earlier comment from Fiona re ‘lightish brown’ have any relationship to height in the oven?

    Regards

    • Hi Ray, it’s usually the middle of the oven I use.

      • ‘Bombs’ all done and doggie approved – lightish in colour but very tasty. Thanks re oven – used the top shelf for this batch, but will use middle next time. Ginger biscuits next on the menu!!

  3. Just made these. Think I have done something wrong, they were not even light brown after the 45 mins. Gave an extra 15 minutes (5 min increment just in case) and they are lightish brown but do taste a little dry??

      • I used wholemeal and cornflour. I have been making dog biscuits for a couple of years (as I don’t like all the additives and the price of bought ones!!) but they are crunchy cheesy biscuits and I wanted a recipe for a softer type (she, my 3 year old GSD is such a greedy guts that she swallows biscuits whole and chokes!!!). Anyway she loves these ‘bombs’ just wondered if I may have cocked up somehow?maybe my cooker is cooler?

        • I really don’t know what went wrong. If you get the chance try a different cooker and get back to me.

  4. I’m introducing my dogs to a wheat free diet. These banana bombs sound great – do you think I could substitute the wholemeal flour for potato flour or rice flour?

  5. AAhhhmm!! Attention please!

    I have to put a word in here. All you dog owners out there, listen up! These here Banana Bombs are scrumilicious! You can’t waste any more time checking out the recipe pages. Stop here! Make these! Your pet pooch will love you forever! … Then work your way through the others as I’m sure they’re just as delish!

    I was treated to these last week, in fact there might be one or too left, so I’m staying extra good just to be sure I get to hover them all up!

    Spot on Jamie, I award you honorary membership to the Cornwall dog owner appreciation society for services to pooch food! (a very coveted award!!!) Keep up the fab work up there fellow celt!

  7. Hi Aimee, I’d probably try grating some apples instead. Just remember to throw away the seeds.

  9. My Lola loves these! I always make too many, though, even using half the recipe. Do they freeze well?

    Reply
    • Hi Sue! I’m glad you’re Lola loves them! Yes, they freeze very well, just chuck them in the freezer once cooked.

  11. How long would recommend storing the ‘banana bombs’ and keeping in a fridge is okay?

    Reply
    • A couple of weeks if stored correctly but if you freeze once cooked then a very long time!

      • Thanks Jamie

  12. Hi Jamie,

    Thanks for recipe, have just gone vegetarian, so good timing. Hope to try out at some point, sure dogs will love them and possibly me too!

    • Thanks Jackie! Funny you say that as it was actually quite pleasant to eat when I tried it which feels strange for a dog treat!
