1 – Homemade Sweet Potatoe Dog Treats
We try our best to eliminate highly processed food from our diets, so why not help our beloved pups do the same? Our friends over at Fedwell show us how to make all-natural, organic treats for your pooch. Spoiler: all you need are sweet potatoes!
1. Peel 1-2 sweet potatoes
2. Cut sweet potato in half and slice with a mandolin, using a 1/8″ setting
3. Organize on parchment paper (don’t overlap slices!)
4. Bake at 250 for 10-15 minutes
5. Flip, then bake for another 5 minutes (treats should be dry, not brown)
2 – Homemade Apple Dog Donuts
- 2 cups gluten-free cake flour (We used Better Batter® which has no corn and is safe for dogs)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 4 tablespoons olive oil, at room temperature
- 2 extra-large eggs at room temperature, beaten
- 3/4 cup 100% no sugar-added apple cider
- 1 apple, diced very fine or grated
Makes approx. 11 regular sized donuts or 3 dozen mini donuts
3 – Peanut Butter Dog Treats
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Add flour and baking powder in a bowl and mix.
- Now combine peanut butter and milk in another bowl and mix.
- Add the wet mixture to dry mixture, and mix them well together.
- Put the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead thoroughly.
- Roll out so dough is 1/4-inch in thickness and then cut out shapes or use a dog bone cookie cutter.
- Place cut outs on a baking sheet, lightly greased and bake 20 minutes. Check on them frequently as they can burn easily.
- Cool on a rack.
- Watch your dog devour with glee.
This really turned out well; and the treats have kept for two weeks in a zip top plastic bag and still look great and our dog Toby still loves them. I didn’t refrigerate and they have kept. I am thinking about adding something else to this the next time I make them, any suggestions for another flavor to add to this simple to make, homemade dog treat?
