Banana Bread for Dogs Recipe

Makes about 12 slices


2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

2 banana, mashed

1/8 cup honey

1 egg

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon cinnamon

½ cup coconut or almond milk


  1. Preheat oven to 325° F. To ensure the loaf doesn’t stick to the pan, spray or coat with vegetable oil.
  2. In a large bowl, add flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix well.
  3. In a small bowl, mash bananas with a fork
  4. Add honey, egg, coconut or almond milk to the mashed banana and whisk together with a fork.
  5. Stir the wet mixture in the dry ingredients gradually, and mix together until combined.
  6. Scoop out the mixture and place in the loaf pan. Use your hands, a knife or a spatula to level the dough so it’s evenly distributed throughout the pan.
  7. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Before removing loaf from the oven, poke loaf with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, it’s ready to come out.
  8. Remove loaf from the pan and let cool for an hour.
