For the LOVE of Dogs…Doggie Biscuits

All week long I have promised our 13-years young yellow lab Daisy that I would make her, along with her two four-legged siblings, some doggie This is Sparky (youngest of the three), anxiously waiting for biscuits...biscuits.  Tonight were all three doggies lucky night!

This recipe was inspired/adapted from a young lady with a knack for baking.  Her website has many wonderful baking insights.  Simply described from her own words, “From my heart or from my oven- I am simply here to share my baking journey.

Doggie Cookies

I chose to replicate this doggy treat recipe (with an added hint of personal touches) because it is easy, simply delicious (based on how our doggies reacted each time I gave them one…right out of the oven if it was possible for them!),  it smelled divine and what dog wouldn’t want home-baked treats?!  Moreover, if I changed an ingredient or two in the recipe, it’s very human-friendly!  How awesome is that?  One more thing…don’t called them doggy biscuits, as they are indeed ‘cookies’ by look and texture alone.

The original recipe was adapted from a wonderful young lady whom I strongly believe will go far in her passion for baking someday.  Her website  tell tales a handful of personal baking insights., not to mention, the cute story behind these delightful ‘Doggie Cookies’ and her 1 year, eight months old boxer name Princess


  • ​1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder​
  • 1 banana​
  • 2/3 cup milk​
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon​


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, baking powder and cinnamon.​
  3. In another small bowl, mash the banana with the back of a spoon [I used a fork by mistake and it was okay, too ;-)].
  4. ​Pour the milk into the banana and whisk together until well blended.
  5. Combine the milk mixture into the flour and mix together until doughy (I used a spoon to mix it; placed it on a board and continued mixing it with my hands). ​
  6. Roll dough into small balls and once all rolled, flatten them with the back of a spoon.​ (I used a roller to flatten the dough about 1/2 inch thick on the board and used hearts and circles biscuit cutters instead)  NOTE:  The bananas give the dough a sticky texture in some areas, so keep  1/2 a cup of extra wheat dough handy to add onto it as you continue to knead gently.
  7. Bake for ​10 minutes or until golden brown. [the texture for the treats as they cooled for about 5 minutes were chewy, like any type of cookies ideally should be ;-)]
