When you want to make something different and nutritious for your best friend you can use this great recipe! It’s great to give them variety in their diet without giving them our food which is usually delicious but over salted and seasoned for their health needs. Here’s a simple and healthy dog treat recipe that includes vegetables:
1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup cooked and mashed carrots
1/4 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/4 cup finely chopped spinach
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 large eggs
1/4 cup water
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed sweet potatoes, mashed carrots, peas, spinach, whole wheat flour, applesauce, eggs, and water. Mix well to form a dough-like consistency.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness.
Use cookie cutters or a knife to cut out desired shapes for your dog treats.
Place the treats onto the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the treats are golden brown and crispy.
Remove from the oven and let the treats cool completely before serving them to your furry friend.
Store the treats in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks, or freeze them for longer storage.
