Simple Banana Bones

Bowl of bone shaped homemade dog biscuits or treats

32 - 48 cut out cookies

These are simple and quick to make. Have fun!

1 banana, mashed

1 egg, beaten 

1 teaspoon molasses (blackstrap only)

1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil 

¼ cup unsalted chicken bone broth 

⅓ cup ground flaxseed 

1 ½ cups brown rice flour (+ about a ½ cup more for working)

Do ahead: Preheat oven to 350℉. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with cooking spray.  

Combine banana, egg and molasses in a large bowl; whisk until banana pieces are almost pulverized. Add oil, broth and flaxseed and whisk for 30 seconds; let this mixture sit for 5 minutes so the flaxseed can absorb some moisture. Using a spoon, stir in brown rice flour ½ cup and a time. A thick pasty doug will form that will become difficult to stir. 

Sprinkle some of the extra brown rice flour onto a work surface; turn dough onto surface and shape into a disk. Sprinkle with flour and roll dough into a sheet about ⅛ inch thick. Punch out cookies using bone shaped cutters (use whichever size or shape you want). Transfer bones to the prepared baking sheet. Ball up remaining dough and roll again to make more bones. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until light golden and crispy. May be kept stored in an airtight container refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. Woof!

NOTE: Brown rice flour can be difficult to work with for a cut-out cookie, but I’ve noticed that my Lily Lou really doesn’t care what these cookies look like when they come out of the oven. She can smell a banana from a mile away it seems!
