5 ingredients or less Dog treats
Updated: Sep 20, 2019
HI, I love animals,. If anyone on here has a topic they would like discussed please let me know. But today I am starting with treats. What dog does not love them? I love making them myself because that way I know what goes into it. I even sometimes make home made dog food for them when they need to lose alittle weight. Here are some treat examples below:
Easy Two-Ingredient Dog Treats( Dog-Milk.com)
2 cups 100% organic whole wheat flour* (or wheat germ, spelt, rolled oats — or a mixture of these)2 (4oz) jars of pureed baby food** – beef, blueberry, sweet potato, chicken, etc.
Preheat oven to 350°.Mix ingredients together to form a stiff dough. If necessary, add extra flour or water as needed.On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out evenly until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut into desired shape or a pizza cutter to make cubes.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).
And that’s it! Consider getting creative and including tasty surprises like grated carrots or sweet potatoes, parsley, blueberries, bananas, etc. — whatever non-toxic fruits or veggies your dog likes.
Also, this recipe makes a lot and lasts for a few weeks. If the amount is too much for your dog to consume within that time, consider halving the recipe or freezing the dough/treats for later!
*A note on the flour: if you’d rather create a grain-free version, you can substitute the flours listed for bean flour (like chickpea flour/gram flour) or even buckwheat (which isn’t actually a grain and is gluten-free). Other options are quinoa flour, coconut flour, and even peanut flour — or a mixture of any of these!
**A note on the baby food: Most baby foods do not contain these ingredients anyway, but it’s good to note that you should avoid using any that contain onions, grapes, or raisins. Unsure? Check this
