Hi, guys! Every dog owner knows how dog treats are absolutely necessary to have at home, specially when training your dog. Mass-produced treats may not be the best option if given very often.
We have prepared a few recipes of homemade treats so you can mix things up. These are super easy to make and your pup will love them! 🙂
Oatmeal and banana cookies
- 1 cup of oatmeal flour
- 1 large banana
- 1 teaspoon of powdered cinnamon
Mash the banana and mix it with the oatmeal flour and the cinnamon. Roll small balls with your hand. Grease the tray (or use parchment paper) and bake for 15 minutes at 180°C.
- 250g of chicken or cow liver
- 50g of oatmeal flour
- 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
Lightly bake the liver until it gets pink in the middle. Pulse the liver in the food processor and add the oatmeal flour and the coconut oil. Pulse until everything is well blended. Slightly grease a baking pan (or use parchment paper) and make a fine layer with the mix. Bake it on low until it gets dry.
Apple ice cream
- 1 apple
- 2 table spoons of natural yoghurt without sugar or flavors (can be replaced by kefir)
Throw everything into a blender and put the mix into ice trays. Freeze it and treat your dog in hot days!
Peanut butter oatmeal balls
- 1 banana
- 13g of peanut butter (100% pure)*
- 250g of oatmeal
Throw everything into a blender and puree it. Roll small balls with your hands. Bake on low until it gets crunchy.
*Make sure you check the peanut butter ingredients (it should contain only peanuts and nothing else!). Peanut butters that contain sugar, xylitol or anything else in their composition should not be given to your pet. Xylitol is toxic to dogs and can be fatal.
- 2 cups of oatmeal flour
- 1 egg
- 1 table spoon of extra virgin olive oil
- ½ can of carrot puree
Throw everything into a blender. Spread it in a thin layer on a baking sheet and bake it on low until it gets crunchy.
