As I was going through my old photos, I saw the dog treats I made for Grumples almost two years ago! I can’t believe I forgot to post them. I guess better late than never; even if it is two years later!
I love making dog treats for Grumps. I love knowing exactly what is going into his food and treats. I’ve been making wet food to mix in with his food lately, too. I make a huge crockpot of it and can it up. I add couple of tablespoons to his dry food to get him to eat it. It works well.
I did a little research to see what foods were good for dogs health. I put all the foods together into one dog treat!
Ingredients: 5 eggs, 2 celery sticks, 1 sweet potato, 1/4 cup ground flax, 1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour, 1/4 cup coconut oil, 4 tablespoon natural peanut butter, 1/4 cup chia seeds.
Soften the sweet potato by microwave or boiling. Dice them up and throw them into the blender. Sweet potatoes are also great for fiber and theyre vitamin rich!
I love my dog, but I don’t like bad breath! Celery acts as a natural breath freshener for dogs. It’s CRAZY rich with vitamins A, B, C, calcium, potassium, iron, and phosphorous! It keeps your pup heart healthy and can lower blood pressure.
Applesauce acts as the butter in this recipe! You’ll want to make sure to get an all natural unsweetened applesauce. No preservatives, no coloring, and no extra added spices! Applesauce adds more fiber to treats!
Blend it all up!
Eggs are good for your dog as long as they don’t have an allergy to them. They are a great source of riboflavin and contain a very digestible protein.
Mix them in!
Chia seeds are AWESOME for dogs health! They help cells, the immune system, skin and coat, joints, brain development, eyes, and growth! When Grumples was a puppy, his vet always recommended chia seeds!
Let the chia seeds sit in the mixture for 15 minutes before baking.
Flaxseeds are also great for dogs skin and coat. Theyre a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber!
Mix them in!
Garbanzo bean flour is a great source to use instead of white flour or anything with grains; especially dogs with allergies. It’s great for more protein and fiber. Garbanzo bean flour reduces glycimec index in food, which is great for dogs since they are more prone to diabetes.
All dogs LOVE peanut butter. We can’t throw all these superfood ingredients together without some delicious flavor! Make sure to find an all natural peanut butter with no sugar/salt added. Peanut butter not only tastes great, but it’s a good source of protein, healthy fats, niacin, vitamin b, and e!
Stir it in! (you could add it to the blender in the first step-much easier)
I give Grumples coconut oil for his joints and his skin. He has very sensitive skin, so the coconut oil is great for taking away the itch.
Melt it in the microwave for 20 seconds and stir it into the bowl.
Heat oven to 300 degrees.
Pour the mixture into a flat baking sheet. Spread evenly and let them bake for 20 minutes!
Allow the treats to cool for an hour and then slice!
I placed them on a piece of tin foil and let them dry out overnight.
This recipe made TONS of little pieces that Grumples LOVED!
You can use a cookie cutter instead of slicing them too!
What is your pups favorite food?
