PB Banana Treats
1 cup oats
2 cups rice flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 banana, peeled
2 tablespoons natural, gluten-free peanut butter or sodium-free peanut butter
¼ teaspoon dry parsley
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup cold water
1 teaspoon flax seed oil (optional, great for skin!)
PB Banana Frosting
¾ cup banana yogurt
2 tablespoons natural, gluten-free peanut butter
>>To make frosting, add yogurt and peanut butter to food processor and blend together. Mix will be creamy and a runnier than normal human frosting. Place in small plastic bag and refridgerate.
>>Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
>>Mix oats in food processor until finely chopped and flour-like.
>>Add oats, rice flour, baking soda, peanut butter, parsley and cinnamon. Next, add egg, water and banana, mushing the banana as you add it. Mix well.
>>Knead into dough using hands. Add rice flour or cold water as necessary to form workable dough.
>>Roll out on parchment/wax paper about ¼ in. to ½ in. thick using rolling pin covered in flour.
>>Use cookie cutters to make desired shapes and place onto baking sheet with parchment paper. (If you don’t have cookie cutters, try using a clean spice cap!)
>>Bake for 10 – 15 minutes or until golden. Baking time will vary depending on the size of treats.
>>Cool for at least 30 minutes. To frost, cut hole in side of plastic bag and decorate as you wish.
>>Refrigerate uncovered treats for at least 3 hours to allow frosting to harden (overnight works best).
>>Store in refrigerator or airtight container. If stored in freezer, treats will last up to 1 month.
