Making doggie treats is super simple. I found recipes on Pinterest that would suit what I had in my pantry already. For our old man Tobey (15 years young) I made two kinds, one Carrot and Apple Sauce. For the carrot recipe I used bakingmischief.com fun doggie recipes shaped as ghosts, perfect as it’s Halloween Season lol! And for the frozen mint, apple yoghurt I used theproducemoms.com shaped like a dog bone.
He honestly gobble both equally ferociously, like he’s never eaten before. Though personally the only thing I would change is that the frozen treat mold is too big, I should have bought the small size. It was too large for Tobey and it was too cold for the size, I’ll know next time!
Here is the recipe from their Blogs:
Carrot Oat Applesauce Treats for Dogs and Horses
Quick and easy four-ingredient treats for dogs and horses. Course Dog Treats Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 20 minutes Total Time 30 minutes Servings 12 Calories 49kcal Author Tracy
- 1/2 cup oats (quick for dogs, quick, steel-cut or old-fashioned are fine for horses)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup (about 1 large) carrot finely grated
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and cover a baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- Mix all four ingredients in a medium bowl.
- Use a tablespoon to drop clumps of the mixture on to the baking tray. Shape if you wish.*
- Bake for 18-20 minutes, until treats are set.
*I made test batches with both steel-cut and instant/quick oats. I thought the steel-cut oats made a more attractive treat, so they are what I used for the final batch (you can’t really shape the instant oats).These keep in the fridge for 5-7 days.
