My puppy dog’s cupboard was bare so I either had to go to the store and buy dog treats or fire up the oven and make my own so I decided on these Peanut butter and Banana Dog Treats.

Even though these are dog treats my wife and I always try the finished product and I thought these were pretty good – my wife thought they were the best yet, so “Hunter”, our English setter, may have some competition for these. LOL

  3. Place the eggs, peanut butter, and pumpkin in a stand mixer bowl fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on high speed until well combined (about 2-3 minutes). Reduce mixer speed to low and add the flour a ¼ cup at a time until dough is no longer sticky-add more flour if needed. Dough will separate from the sides of the bowl when ready.
