An inexpensive, easy-to-make homemade dog treats using simple ingredients. These Banana Ginger Dog Treats are a hit with dogs of all sizes and contain only four ingredients!


Units Scale
  • 1 Banana (over ripe)
  • 6 Egg Yolks
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Step 2: In a large bowl, mash the banana. Start adding the egg yolks to the mashed banana and mix thoroughly.

Step 3: Using a Microplane, grate 2 tablespoons of fresh ginger. Add to the banana mixture.

Step 4: Using a fork, add the flour and mix until it starts forming a ball.

Step 5: Put parchment paper out on your counter and flour the surface. Using your hand a rolling pin, flatten out the dough. Make sure to flour the dough to keep it from sticking lightly.

Step 6: Using your preferred cooking cutter, cut out the treats. Once you are finished, place on a non-stick cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove when lightly brown and allow to cool before feeding your dogs.


Note 1: If you don’t have a Microplane (a long-handled grinder), you can use a standard kitchen, but I highly recommend purchasing a microplane. This is a fine grate grater that is a lifesaver in the kitchen. I highly recommend Oxo’s Microplane since it is inexpensive and easy to clean.

Note 2: If you have never used fresh ginger, peel it first. You don’t want to use the skin, just the fleshy part inside (like garlic).
