Organic Dog Treats

Organic dog treats are the specialty of the Green Lakes Barkery based in Green Lakes, New York. The owner, Nathan Lutz, even grows his own organic produce to use in his bakery dog treats. 

If you bake with organic dog treat recipes, then try this simple trick that Nathan offers to make banana dog treats sweeter and more flavorful. Who may end up eating your inventory.

Enhance organic dog treat recipes
with sweetened bananas!

What you need:
  • Organic yellow bananas
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Place the unpeeled bananas in a row on a tray that has sides. Do not use a flat baking sheet because the cooking process will cause the bananas to "weep" a milky colored liquid that will congeal into a sweet syrup when it cools, and you want to be able to "catch" it
  • Roast the bananas in the oven for approximately 15 minutes
  • Turn the bananas over and roast another 15 minutes
  • Let the bananas cool down enough to touch.
  • Peel and use in your dog treat recipe. Add in the natural banana syrup for more flavor.

Bananas treated like this will taste sweeter. Another benefit is that you can use yellow bananas that are not largely ripened and save time on having to wait for this process to occur. You can freeze them...just peel first.

If you want a banana flavoring, collect the syrup and use for other dog treat recipes as well. If you decorate with dog treat icing, you can create your own organic banana flavoring.

Organic yogurt drops for dogs with fruit flavors are manufactured by and make great dog training treats due to their small size.
