The Mama did it again.
She bought bananas. I honestly don’t know why she even bothers. OK, she wants a banana. I get it. Those things are darn Tasty, but why does she have to get three bananas? She doesn’t want three bananas. She’s going to eat one and then the other two are going to end up brown and disgusting. No one is going to eat a gross brown banana, Mama. No one. Those things look gross. The Mama always claims that she is going to make banana bread, but let’s face it. If you’re a human around here and you’re expecting the Mama to cook for you, you might be waiting a long time. It’s mostly canine cuisine crafted ’round these parts.
Good thing that dogs love bananas too.
Seriously. Those little suckers are delicious. I don’t care for the mushy ones. I’m a picky puggle. I like a nice firm banana or nothing. That’s why the Mama had to turn these into banana chips for dogs. We love dehydrator dog treat recipes because they are usually SO EASY, but these are just as easy to make in the oven, if you prefer.
- 2 bananas
- 2 tbsp. natural peanut butter
- Optional: 2 tbsp. Lemon juice
Peel bananas and slice as thin as possible. (I try for around 1/8".) If desired, toss with lemon juice. Heat peanut butter slightly, so it is runny. Toss banana pieces in the peanut butter.
Lay out banana pieces on dehydrator trays. Turn on dehydrator. Allow pieces to dry for around 24 hours, until bananas are no longer pliable and they snap when broken.
Preheat oven to 250F.
Line baking trays with parchment paper. Lay out banana pieces on trays and bake for 90 minutes. Flip over banana pieces and bake for additional 60 - 90 minutes until crisp.
Store peanut butter & banana chips in an airtight, moisture free container.

Hi Katy, If they are fully dehydrated they should last for a couple months, as long as they are sealed and stored in a cool, dark place.
