These cookies are made using brown rice flour, which is easy on a pup's digestion. Peanut butter and banana make this a tasty treat. Beet powder, which is optional in this recipe, will give them a holiday hue.
1/3cup90g plain natural peanut butter (sugar and salt-free)
1/4cup25g beet powder
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine all of the ingredients except the beet powder in a large bowl. Stir together until well-incorporated. Add the beet powder and knead together with your hands. The dough should not be sticky. If the dough is sticky add extra rice flour in a little at a time and knead together with hands.
Turn the dough out onto a large sheet of parchment paper and top with a second sheet. Roll the dough between the sheets to 1/4-inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to stamp shapes from the dough. Transfer the shapes to the prepared pan. When the pan is full of cut-outs, chill them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Bake the cookies for 10 minutes for 2-inch shapes, and 12-15 for larger cookie shapes. Let cool completely before treating your canine friend.
