Here’s a fun and simple recipe to make healthy and inexpensive dog treats at home. What could be easier than only using two ingredients? Flour and pureed baby food.
Dog Bone Cookie CutterHere’s what you’ll need:
2 jars (4 oz.) pureed meat or vegetable baby food (avoid artificial preservatives, onion/onion powder)
2 cups 100% organic whole wheat flour, spelt, wheat germ or rolled oats (or a mixture of them)
1) Preheat oven to 350⁰.
2) Mix together to form a stiff dough. If necessary, add extra flour or water as needed.
3) On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to about a 1/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut into desired shape or a pizza cutter to make cubes.
4) Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, place treats about 1/2 inch apart. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely before storing in a paper bag (storing in an air-tight container will make them soft, but they’re still edible).
You could always take it a step further by adding peanut putter as the icing, grated carrots or sweet potatoes, or delicious blueberries.
