These Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Biscuits are so good, it won’t be just your golden retriever sneaking their paws into the cookie jar…

ingredients for peanut butter and banana dog biscuits

And that’s a good thing because I probably don’t need to tell you how much goldies LOVE food. In fact, there isn’t much they won’t eat and it doesn’t even have to be ‘edible’ (except Leo does hate spinach). All golden retriever parents know you have to be careful, because you’ve got the kind of furbaby who’ll munch on anything they think smells tasty enough, even if it’s wombat poo (I’m looking at you, Layla).

That’s why I love making my goldens and their guests these dog biscuits. They’re delicious, vet approved and make their breath smell a whole lot nicer than other nasties they may think are good to eat.
