We have some big changes coming to Dog Mamma's soon! My dream is finally becoming a reality!!!!! Back in 2012 I walked into my local bank and opened a business account. The lady at the bank asked me what my new business was. I told her that my dream has been to have my own organic dog treat business. I told her that didn't know how, but I knew that if I stuck to it...it would become a reality. It has been a lot of twists and turns, ups and downs and uncertainty, but we are finally here! As I got up to leave I told her that by the time I was 50 my brand was going to be out there, serving pet parents that believe what we give our dogs matters. I was going to build my little company on my desire to intentionally treat, choose small and give back. So....as you might guess, 50 is right around the corner, I'm taking a giant leap of faith and we are on the launch pad!!!! Stay Tuned!!!
In my never ending quest to feed my dogs healthy, tasty snacks I am always trying new homemade treats and making up new recipes myself along the way. This one was easy to mix up and prepare and a nice mix of healthy foods. I made good use of some over ripe bananas I had in the freezer from our trees. Blueberry Pumpkin Banana Treats 1/2 cup blueberries 2 over ripe bananas 1 15 oz can pure pumpkin 1 1/3 cup rolled oats 1 tbs local honey 1 egg Pre-heat oven to 350 Mix all ingredients well, mashing up the bananas until they are smooth. Drop teaspoon size balls onto a silicone line cookie sheet. Bake 1 hour until browned and chewy. Makes approx. 45 treats. Calories: approximately 21 per treat. Store in the refrigerator after baking.

I liked the softer texture of this treat. The key is letting them cook long enough so they are firm in the center, and mashing the bananas into small pieces. My official taste testers liked them. I tried one too...pretty good!
Yes, that is a grass stain...too much fun at the park this morning!
