It is holiday season which means it is also baking season! For the first time ever, I was able to get a head start on my holiday baking this year – this never happens!
While I was hustling around in the kitchen and having a mini dance party for 1, I almost tripped and fell over poor little Pug who was waiting at my feet for something to fall. He is a great little vacuum cleaner! It occurred to me at this point that while I was making all these baked goods for family and friends – Winston is family also and deserves a little something for the holiday season also! (Have you realized I am a crazy Pug lady yet?)
These peanut butter balls are made with 3 simple ingredients that you probably already have at home and require very minimal effort and no baking at all!
Here is what you will need:
♥ 1 ripe banana
♥ 3 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter
♥ 1 1/2 cup of oats
Here is what you will need to do:
♥ In a medium sized bowl mash up the banana and combine with peanut butter and oats. (I don’t have one anymore but if you have a mixer, now is a good time to use it)
♥ Scoop out about a teaspoon at a time and roll into little ball by hand
♥ Roll the ball over extra oats for a little coating if you’d like.
♥♥ I did toss mine in the oven at 350 for a couple minutes to help keep their shape but that part is optional
How easy is that!? Don’t forget to show your 4 legged babies some love this holiday season!
