Banana-Coconut Bones

My Mummy LOVES to make us healthy snacks and this is an easy recipe for you to try.  I promise, you won’t be in the kitchen all day…you just need one bowl, a fork, a measuring cup, a measuring spoon, a spatula (to remove them) and one sheet pan.  NO MIXER REQUIRED!  I hope you will give it a try.

Banana-Coconut Bones

.

1 ripe banana (mash it real good with a fork)

1/4 cup organic coconut oil (I sell the BEST coconut oil in my online BOUTIQUE…it is all organic…the best kind!)

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup rolled oats (not the instant variety)

1 1/4 cups whole grain brown rice flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)

.

In a large mixing bowl, mash up the banana with a fork, then add your coconut oil (don’t melt it…it is already semi-soft).  Add the cinnamon and mix it all up really good with your fork.  Stir in the rolled oats and mix this up…then add your brown rice flour.  Mix it all up…knead it a bit with your hands to get everything all mixed and in a nice soft ball.  On a lightly floured surface (spread a little more of the brown rice flour down on the counter)  pat out the mixture until it’s about 1/4-inch thick.  You don’t need to bother with a rolling pin…it pats out really nicely with just your hands.  Then cut out shapes with a little bone cookie cutter.  NOW…if you have purchased one of my COOKBOOKS from my website…you already HAVE one of these cute little cookie cutters because you got one for FREE with your cookbook purchase…if you don’t have one…you can really make any shape you like, but these little doggie bones are the PERFECT tiny size for us little doggies!  (Now you want to order one of my cookbooks, don’t you? )  Lay out all the bones on a greased cookie sheet….or better yet…use one of those cool SILPAT MATS that I sell in my online BOUTIQUE and you won’t have to worry about ANYTHING ever sticking to your pan. Mummy LOVES LOVES LOVES her Silpat Mat!  These little bones don’t rise and don’t spread…so you can place them pretty close to one another on the pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.  Remove to a wire rack to cool and then let us sample them!  We will let you know how good they are by BEGGING YOU for MORE all day long!!!!  Makes about 3 1/2 dozen little bones.  Store your snacks in a ziplock bag or covered container and keep them in the refrigerator until they are all gone.

Bone Appetit!

These “bones” sound scrumptious. And I can use the bone shaped cookie cutters that came with your cookbook!
