  1. Sounds yummy. Our guys are not into sweets, though. Might try these for myself :-)

    • I’m tempted by these myself. Our dogs have never been fans of bananas so I’m not sure if they’ll go for these, but it’s worth a shot.

  2. My dogs would LOVE this – I have to whip out the electric mixer that has not seen the light of day in years :) Thanks for the inspiration.

    • My pleasure. I had to stop and think – do I have an electric mixer? – I feel that we do, but I’m not sure :)

  3. How did you store the remainder?

    • I usually freeze leftovers or share with friends :)
