NOTE : NEVER feed your dog spent grains containing HOPS!
Peanut Butter-Banana Dog Treats
In large bowl or stock pot:
6 c spent grains (NO HOPS)
6 c flour
1 1/2c peanut butter
1 ripe banana, cut into small pieces
Mix thoroughly, dough will be thick and sticky.
Lightly spray one or two cookie sheets with baking spray and press mixture into them. Score treats however you like. Scoring prior to baking makes it easier to break apart after wards. Cookie cutters fancy it up.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until firm but not crunchy; remove from heat and turn oven down to 200°F; finish scoring and return to oven for 5-10 minutes until completely dry in the center. (Gooey center will cause it to mold).
Store treats in the refrigerator in a sealed bag.
Options: Add applesauce, grated carrots. cheese, mashed peas, dog kibble, be creative!
