Ever year we make dog cookies as Christmas gifts. We give them to neighbors, family and of course our pups. We have made a ton of dog treats over the years. There are great recipes here, here and here.
This year we came up with our own recipe. The kids loved coming up with different combinations and trying to get the correct consistency. Finally we were successful and the dogs really enjoyed our healthy treats.
The cookies are loaded with fantastic healthy ingredients. I love that I know exactly what my pups are snacking on. The cookies are so easy and totally worth it.
Apple Carrot Pumpkin Doggie Goodness
2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup Oats
1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree (I baked a pumpkin from the garden until soft then threw it in the magic bullet)1/2 cup Carrot Juice
1/3 cup Apple Juice (seeds removed)
1 cup Carrot/Apple Juicing Pulp
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
The kids love using the juicer so for this recipe we juiced the carrots and apples.
Mix all the ingredients in a big mixing bowl. I mix everything in one bowl to save on dishes. It hasn’t messed up a recipe yet.
On a floured surface roll out your dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. We used quite a bit of flour to help with the stickiness.
We used heart shaped cookie cutters because I don’t have a bone shaped cutter (hint hint to my hubby 🙂 )
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes.
Cool completely and store in an air tight container.
