Healthy Home-Baked Dog Treats

Written By: Li Cross - Dec• 15•14

014 Make these dog treats in your own kitchen. Any cookie cutter will work just fine. They also make great gifts. Made with carrots or apples and whole wheat flour. I found a cute air-tight container at our local Walmart store. They will keep for weeks and dogs love them. Here is the recipe:



¾ cup of apple (or carrots may be used)

1/3 cup vegetable oil

½ cup purified water

1 egg beaten

1 Tablespoon of brown sugar

2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour

½ cup corn meal

Place all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir together and set aside.

Core and peel apple or if using carrots, chop into large chunks and place into a hi-speed blender. Add water, oil and egg. Blend on Hi until saucy.

Combine sauce with dry ingredients and form a large ball of dough.

Flour a rolling pin and  a clean-hard-flat surface. Roll out ½ the dough and using a favorite cookie cutter, cut out the biscuits about ¼ inch thick.

Place on cookie sheets and bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Turn oven off and let them set for 30 minutes to get crisp.  (when using two sheets – bake them at the same time so all treats are done when you turn oven off)

Store in air-tight container.
