Just as Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil is good for our human digestion, it can also be extremely beneficial for our favorite furry friends. Due to the nature of coconut oil, it may assist in weight loss, skin and coat health, and thyroid health. Coconut oil can also help soothe bug bites or stings as it serves as a natural antibacterial agent. The antifungal aspect also can help if your dog has less than pleasant breath!
We love a good treat, and so does your pet! Here is a quick and easy recipe incorporating Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil that your dog will love! This hypoallergenic treat is only four simple ingredients!
Peanut Butter Banana Treats
- 3 Cups - Old Fashioned Oats (Can be substituted for 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour)
- 2 – Ripe Bananas, mashed
- ¼ Cup – Peanut Butter
- ¼ Cup – Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil
Preheat oven to 350o
In a large bowl, mix your ingredients together until well blended and the dough is no longer sticky. Add extra oats until you get the desired consistency. Then, on a lightly floured surface, knead your dough about 3-5 times. Take your rolling pin and roll to about a ¼ inch thick. Then take your desired cookie cutter and place onto a non-stick baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are golden brown. Baking time will vary depending on the size and thickness of your treats. Let cool completely and enjoy!
