My Furry Valentine

If you are lucky enough to bask in the love of a pet then it's important you remember your furry love

on Valentines Day.  The way to a dog's heart is clearly through the stomach which makes gift giving easy:   something edible. 

Grain free Peanut Butter, Banana, and Carob Chip Hearts 

2 bananas 
6 tbsp peanut butter
3 cups coconut flour
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup quick oats 
1/2 cup carob chips 

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Mash the bananas in a large bowl and stir in the peanut butter and eggs. Mix in the flour and oats and chips. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness on a floured surface and cut out with a heart shaped cookie cutter.

My cutter was really much too big. I need to read the descriptions on amazon more thoroughly, but it did major the cookies a good size for sharing. 

Transfer the cut out cookies to parchment lined baking sheets and bake 40 minutes or until dry to the touch.  Cool completely.
