If you’re lucky enough to have a dog, then they are a huge part of your Christmas. Wrapping up warm to take them for walks; falling asleep with them by your feet in front of the fire; and them getting just as excited as you when your friends come over!
We’ve put our love of dogs and skills in the kitchen together and come up with a recipe for Christmas cookies that your furry friend will love.
Dog-friendly Christmas cookies
1 medium banana
130g wholemeal flour
120g dried parsley
45g crunchy peanut butter (with no added sugar or salt)
Festive biscuit cutters
- Preheat the oven to 150˚C/130˚C fan/gas mark 2 and line two baking trays with parchment paper.
- Mash the banana in a large bowl.
- Add the wholemeal flour, oats, dried parsley and crunchy peanut butter, followed by the egg. Mix well to combine and allow to sit for five minutes.
- Roll the mixture out to about 1cm thick and cut into festive shapes with biscuit cutters. Place on the prepared trays and bake for 40-45 minutes.
- Allow to cool completely, then store in an airtight container and treat your dog to a homemade biscuit once a day…that is, *if he’s on Santa’s good list!
*It is important to note that all dogs are good dogs and therefore you should probably make a batch of these cookies!
