Last week I tried this new dog treat recipe for my boys. Two ingredients and all organic. And the results were a HUGE success! I found the recipe here. It’s nice to come across another crazy dog Mom. I enjoy being able to make them something in the kitchen rather than purchasing something from the store with a lot of ingredients.
The recipe gives you the freedom to chose what flavor you want to make. My boys loves apples and bananas, so this was the first choice. I will be trying others. Each jar of baby food cost $1.29.
I picked up the Organic whole wheat flour at my favorite store for $1.50. I already had the cookie cutter in my stash, but was looking for something a bit smaller. Like bite size. Keep reading…
Another bonus for this recipe is that I’m only mixing two ingredients together. That’s it!
I gave the boys a little sample by letting them lick the lids. You will see that they were okay with the flavor.
I was thinking out loud on what I could use as a cookie cutter to make the treats smaller. Adam suggested the top of a pop bottle. It worked like a charm! I dipped the top in flour after every other impression.
The dough rolled out with a texture similar to pizza dough. I used a little extra flour on the counter just in case it started to stick. Next time I’ll know not to use so much.
Due to using a smaller cookie cutter I didn’t set the oven as high as the recipe called for because I didn’t want them to burn. For the bottle cap size I set my oven between 275-300. I baked them for about 10-12 minutes. Use your best judgement depending on the size of treat your making and how your oven works.
They couldn’t wait to try them. Actually as I type this post their supply is completely gone. I’ll be choosing another flavor for another batch.
The whole batch made 12 1/2 dozen and cost roughly $4.15. Your batch will vary depending of the size of cookie cutter you use.
Kinda looks like a made dog kibble (food).
So, what flavor would your beloved dogs like? I’m thinking sweet potato might be next.
