    Directions

    Chuck Hughes' cookies recipe to make a special homemade treat for your dog and for yourself!
    Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.

    For the bananas: Mix the bananas in a bowl. Squeeze the lemon juice on them to ensure they don't brown. On a parchment paper-lined baking tray, brush 1 tablespoon melted butter. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar and lay out the banana slices. Brush the slices with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake for about 1/2 hour until the bananas are golden brown. Set aside.

    For the cookies: In a medium bowl, stir together the peanut butter and honey. Mix in the flour, then the caramelized bananas and chocolate.

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop tablespoon-size clusters on the baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Cook's Note: For dog cookies, omit the banana chips and chocolate.

      My friend and I made these treats for his dog. We didn't add the bananas, because the were burnt and we were never 100% his dog would like them, we didn't add chocolate because I was told its not good for dogs. So we added 1/2 cup of oats and 2Tbsp more honey and water to make to dough come together. Wow,I must say they were pretty good. Stella girl loved here homemade no fillers added treats. A think a easy must make again treat.

      I was excited to try the recipe for my dog. The first batch I only baked hor 12 minutes and they were burnt so the second batch I only baked for 5 minutes they were much better. I suggest rolling them out and using cookie cutters .

      I too was super excited for this recipe! And I read the other persons review and ignored it thinking she did something wrong. First the bananas came out good, but it taste exactly like fried plantains (Platanos in spanish, I think it would be healthier to just use that instead of the butter n sugar with bananas. Next the cookies were not regular cookies, it didn't rise like cookies, it didn't spread (inside the oven while cooking like cookies, it just stayed like a lump. I used regular peanut butter, and it didn't work. it needs more wet ingredients because it was too dry, the only wet was the honey. The dogs liked their cookies, but not alot. and my lab eats anything.

      sum it up. If you want to try it, try it just for the dog. I would find a different recipe. The cookies tasted to ... idk the word for it..
