Recipe: Banana Carob Peanut Butter Cookies

We baked yet another lot of cookies for Shalom. Its also part of her Goodnight Cookies series. We have to vary the flavours or else the girl is going to frown at her cookies and leave crumbs all over the house when she plays with them instead of eating them.

2 tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter (creamy works just as well)
200g bananas (that's about 3 pieces of Dole bananas)
1 tablespoon of carob
100ml olive oil
150ml cold water
1 egg beaten (for brushing)
400g flour

• Mix peanut butter, banana and carob well. It will look mushy.
• Add in oil to the mushy mixture.
• Add flour to the oily mushy mixture.
•Add water slowly as you knead the flour and mushy mixture into a firm dough. Break the carob bits as you knead.
• Flatten dough till 1.5cm or thinner if furkids don't have strong teeth. Cut to your choice shape.
• Glaze with egg.
• Place on lightly greased pan.
• Bake in oven at 160C for 20 minutes or until firm.
• Let cookie cool and harden before storing in air tight containers.
You'll notice that the recipe for Shalom's cookies are pretty much similar. I just play around with different "flavoured"ingredient e.g. cod, peanut butter, pumpkin or even peanut butter. So have fun experimenting with what is good for your furkid or what your furkid likes best. And if you like...add some sugar and the humans will like it too:P

Carob is a safe alternative to chocolates. Chocolates are poisonous to dogs so I use Carob which is somewhat similar tasting with chocolate. You can get Carob at good organic or baking shops.

#1 egg is more than sufficient to glaze the cookies. So I normally beat the egg and reserve only 1/3 of the mixture for glazing. The other 2/3 is added into the cookie mix.
