Dog Muffin Recipe: Banana and Oats 'Mutt-fin'

These banana and oats muffins will be so good, your dog(s) will beg you for it. Ours does his silly spins and pawing - he becomes completely obedient, like he's on a remote-control.

Sigh... You could call these 'mutt-fins' too, and your dog might go 'bananas' over it, haha...

We enjoyed it too, not just because it's rather tasty, it's real easy, simple and fast to prepare too. No hassle of cookie cutting or shaping. They're great for a quick breakfast, both dogs and humans.

These 'mutt-fins' would be perfect for those with a sweet-tooth.

In less than 5 minutes after it cooled down, the score for wolfing down the most muffin was: Humans 3, Latte 1. :p

Ingredients: (Makes 18 muffins)

  • 1 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 medium mashed bananas
  • 1 tbs vanilla essence (best to use natural essence.)

0. Preheat the oven.

1. Mix the flour, oats, ground cinnamon and baking powder in a big bowl.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.
3. Lay the paper cups in muffin tray, and scoop the mixture into the cups.

4. Bake at 200°C (400°F) for 12 to 15 minutes. Stick a toothpick or dry spaghetti into the 'mutt-fin', it should come out clean if it's ready.http://latteandcookie.blogspot.com/5. Let cool and let your dog love it!

* Store in an airtight container in the fridge, thaw before treating, should keep well for about 3 to 4 days.

Hi Latte,

I LOVE bananas! Especially with peanut butter. We didn't get a chance to bake your cake recipe for my birthday (puppies take up A LOT of time!) but we should be able to squeeze some mutt fins in.

Hey Spencer, I love bananas and peanut butter too, bet you would have loved the 'mutt-fins' :)

How do you keep your family from eating these before the dog gets them?

Latte said...

Haha.. we bake lots of it, about 18 muffins, and we share. Gave some to our doggie friends too. :)

Simba said...

YUM!!!! Just gotta convince the humans to actually bake for me! Lazy lumps!! BOL!



Latte said...

Thanks Simba :)

Hmm... how about doing all the tricks you know all at once, that'll tickle your humans, haha.

How do you keep humans from eating your mutt-fins? I want mine to make these for me. I LOVE bananas. A lady at the summer Farmer's Market makes mutt-fins and one time my dad ate a sample before the saleslady could stop him. Cooper

Latte said...

Hi aphasia decoder,
BOL! Well... to eat the entire mutt-fin is quite a complement to the lady at the Farmer's Market :p

Bananas! It must be the universal dog treat.

I made these for my yellow lab "Peaches". I tasted one and even I love them. I'm a nutrition freak and these aren't that bad. I suggest these to anyone. They're my fav.
