Hello friends, and welcome back to today’s blog!
For today’s recipe I wanted to try something that would take only a few minutes from simple ingredients most people can find in their house. And also ones that are easy for teens, that have neither the time or a car and go out to buy ingredients only to get halfway through the recipe before realizing they forgot something.
I discovered this recipe for dog treats after looking up recipes that could be made out of bananas, something which most people have in their households. I loved this recipe because not only did it not take more than 5 minutes to put together the ingredients, but I was also able to turn my attention to other things (like my endless pile of homework).
Check out this recipe here, and you’ll for sure be rewarded with cute pictures of corgis and treats.
Per usual, I changed up the recipe enough to put my own twist on it. So instead of making another round of dog biscuits, I decided to create a doggie version of peanut butter cups. And when I say this recipe is easy, trust me, because it’s coming from someone who will sleep with the lights on because they’re too lazy to get up and turn it off.
- 3 cups of old fashioned oats (or more)
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- ¼ cup of peanut butter
- ¼ cup of coconut oil, melted
And that’s it. A grand total of FOUR ingredients, that’s how simple this recipe is.
Now, when it came to preparing the ingredients, all you really have to do is:
- PREHEAT the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
- Melt the coconut oil
- Mash the bananas
- Beat the eggs
And because nobody got time to mix each ingredient individually, THROW THEM ALL IN A BOWL and stir to your heart’s content. When you have thoroughly worn out your arm and attention span, go ahead and add those remaining three cups of oats and fold it in.
Now comes the “hard” part aka the most “time-consuming”. I say that because it literally takes less than a minute to do the following:
- Line your cupcake tins with cupcake paper
- FILL THEM UP
This recipe ultimately gave me 9, 2-inch muffins, and 5, 4-inch muffins, and because of the sheer sizes of the muffins, the small ones took about 20 minutes to bake, whereas the bigger ones took 30 minutes.
REMEMBER this all depends on the strength of your oven, so I would check every 10 minutes and look for the top of the muffins to turn golden brown.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as Timmy and I did, and remember to check back in a few days for another post!
