2 cups old-fashioned oats (gluten-free preferred)
1 cup fresh parsley, loosely packed and finely chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
1 ripe banana, peeled
1 large egg, beaten (see tip below for dogs with allergies to chicken products)
1 tablespoon Olive Oil (optional coconut oil)
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Add oats to a blender or food processor and pulse until a flour like consistency. Combine in a medium bowl, flour, carrots, and parsley. In a small bowl mash the banana with a fork and mix in egg and coconut oil.
Combine banana and flour mixtures and knead until moistened. Turn dough onto a surface lightly dusted with flour. Use your hands and shape dough into a 1/4-inch thick circle. Use small to medium doggie cutter, cut out treats and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet or non-stick cookie sheet. Bake 30-35 minutes.
Note: The longer the treats are baked the more crunchy they will be. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Makes approximately 40 (1-inch) treats or 24 (2-inch) treats.
Tip: For dogs with allergies to chicken products, substitute 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce for one large egg.
