Tuesdays At The Table - Banana Biscotti (Dog Treats)

Know how I mentioned last week that my fabulous friend Andrea would be hosting a giveaway of one of my hats?  Well, it started!  Head on over and enter!!

This week, we're going to the dogs!  I love to bake.  Why shouldn't the pups reap the benefits?!?!  They're just as deserving (if not more so) as everyone else I cook for.  :-)


Banana Biscotti

5 cups flour
1/4 cup peanuts, chopped
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 ½ cups banana, pureed
2 teaspoons vanilla

Place dry ingredients in large bowl. Make a well in the center. Blend egg, oil and banana together. Add into the well in your dry ingredients, and start combining together. Add water, one teaspoon at a time as needed (you want a thick bready consistency). Knead by hand on a well floured table until mixed thoroughly. Form into logs approximately 2" - 2 1/2" high. Flatten, so that log is 3" - 4" wide by 1" high. Place on non-stick baking sheets or lightly greased ones. Bake 30 - 35 minutes at 325. Remove and cool for 10 minutes. Slice into 1/2" - 3/4" slices. Place on baking sheets and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. Store in airtight container.

Beckett tested.  Meadow approved.  :-)
