Tasty Tuesday: Crunch-Coconut with Blissful Banana Dog Cookies

Want a great tasting treat and an easy way to use up those over ripe bananas?


How about some Crunch-Coconut with Blissful Banana Dog Cookies?
 For this recipe you will need:
1 over ripe banana
1 cup of rice flour
1 egg
2 teaspoons of coconut oil
A sprinkle of chia seeds
2 tablespoons of desiccated coconut
Of course, a willing taste tester! (or two)

These are similar to these cookies 
But desiccated coconut makes these cookies even crunchier, hence the name

To make this you will need to preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees fahrenheit
Line a baking tray
Mix all ingredients together
To form a dough
To shape the cookies, I kind of rolled the dough into a log and cut slices
I sprinkled some with extra chia seeds for decoration
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown
Hand over the treat!

Maybe if I try this trick I'll get a cookie?

Product review: Black dog wear whippet collar

Rory got this new collar from Black dog wear

It features and adjustable webbing body in black and green, with a wide padded area on the front to protect delicate whippet necks. 
This martingale function minimizes the chances of the dog backing out of the collar. But because of this, it shouldn't be used as an all day tag collar or it may become dangerous. Although it does have a plastic ring for hanging tags off and the metal D ring on the martingale area is for attaching the leash to.
The collar is very well made and reasonably priced. It comes with a 6 month guarantee.

It looks really great too!
When walking, it was super secure and strong. 

Whilst we here at Zippy the Whippet do love this collar we were not paid to do this post, we bought the collar with ourselves and all opinions are our own.

Hug a friend!

Crazy whippets!

Scout, the black miniature poodle next door, was very upset to be missing out on the action. She was whining through a small gap in the fence. You can just see her nose.
