Today’s Dog Treat Cookie Recipe

Did you know?
BROWN RICE FLOUR is Gluten Free, great to bake treats, if your pet has a wheat allergy. Brown Rice is rich in B3, B6 and magnesium and low in fat.
PUMPKIN is an excellent source of Vitamin A, potassium, and fiber. The nutrients found in pumpkin help to keep a dog’s immune system strong, thereby strengthening resistance to cancer and other diseases.
PARSLEY is a good source of Vitamins A, B, C and K, as well as numerous minerals such as; copper, calcium, potassium, manganese, and iodine. Parsley aids bladder and kidney infections, cleanses the blood, builds the immune system, helps prevents cancer and improves your pet’s stomach and liver functions.

Pumpkin Bacon Parsley

2 slices bacon, crisply cooked, drained and crumbled (Organic – free of artificial nitrates if possible)
2¼ cups brown rice flour
½ cup cooked pumpkin, mashed
½ cup chicken stock – Organic – low sodium
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 180° C (350° F.) and line a cookie tray with parchment paper.
In a large bowl add mashed pumpkin, chicken stock, egg and parsley. Mix together.
Add flour and bacon and mix well using first a fork to combine and then your hands to bring dough together.
Turn dough out onto lightly floured work surface and again, using your hands, gently work the dough to form a ball.
Working with flours that lack gluten can be tricky; the dough crumbles and pulls apart easily – wrap the dough in cling/plastic wrap and refrigerate it for about 30 minutes – it makes a little easier to work with and roll.
Roll dough to about ½ inch thickness and cut with a cookie cutter of your choice or a sharp knife. Place cut outs onto cookie tray and repeat process of knead, roll, cut and place, until all dough is used.
Bake for 30 – 35 minutes (depends on your oven).
Remove from oven and place Ace’s Pumpkin, Bacon n Parsley Bites on wire cooling rack to cool.
Yields about 4 dozen treats
Storage, Refrigeration and Freezing instructions:
Store in zip lock bags or air tight containers in your refrigerator.
Home-baked dog treats contain no preservatives, so they can mold or spoil the same as home-baked people cookies/cakes do. Other variables, ingredients/moisture content of the treat and climate conditions also determine the storage time.
Refrigeration will prolong the life of home-made dog treats.
Freeze for up to 4 months – Always allow treats to thaw completely before feeding.

Feed Ace’s Pumpkin, Bacon n Parsley Bites as a treat.
Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pet’s diet.
As with any treat, always provide fresh water after feeding.

Be sure to check the recipe for any known foods or ingredients your pet may be allergic to. If in doubt, check with your Vet.
