Puppy Treats!

treatsA little change from my normal post. My Boyfriend and I recently adopted a puppy and being the person that I am started looking for some healthy treats I can give to my new fur-bundle of joy. I found out there are a lot of things dogs can’t have such as avocado, garlic and onion, to name a few.

I started off with something easy that I found on Bake at Midnight. It had only a few ingredients so it wouldn’t be a complete loss if Bailey didn’t like them, and I halved the recipe. Please disregard that the cookies are bat shaped, I haven’t bought a dog treat mold just yet. I also added parsley because it helps fight bad puppy breath.

treats1INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 TBS water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, oats and puree. Add water, one TBS at time to make a workable dough. Roll out to 1/8-1/4-inch thickness.  Cut into desired shapes.

Bake for 30-35 minutes.  Turn off oven and let biscuits sit in oven until oven is completely cool.  This helps to dehydrate the biscuits for better storage.
