healthy dog treat recipe – banana chia and spirulina cookie

homemade dog treat recipe


my dog, Zeus, has just celebrated his first birthdaydog food recipe

If you are not into dogs, no worries…you can pass this post. No offence I was not like this till I got my own. My daughter Layla has been wanting to get a pet for years.

To be honest with you puppies are hard! Not sure how many times I thought about giving Zeus bak. (sorry!) but now we cannot imagine family life without him…

make your dog food

Mostly he eats foods that I put together. He is a food lover. I mean he has no standards…. He eats pretty much anything that I make, which is so great. (especially Layla was quite a fussy eater)

Here is a recipe for treats I made for him for his birthday

Banana, chia and spirulina cookie

you need:

2 tbs chia

1/2 cup rolled oats (preferably gluten free)

1/2 cup water

2 medium size banana

45ml coconut flour



soak chia seed and rolled oats in water. (I have left it over night to encourage sprouting process)

Place chopped banana, coconut flour and chia mixture in a food processor and process until it resembles a soft dough. You can either process this mixture with spirulina or it can be added later and mix lightly to give two colours.

place cookie sized mixture on a teflex sheet and dehydrate till desired texture.

As you can see the ingredients are perfectly human friendly and you can definitely  share the treats with your furry friends 🙂
