Today’s Dog Treat Cookie Recipe

A 3m FAVORITE – FRUIT ‘n’ VEGGIE TREATS
Did you know?
Brown Rice Flour is high in protein and contains high levels of B vitamins.
If your dog suffers from wheat allergies, it’s a great choice.  Wheat and gluten free, Brown Rice Flour is packed with fiber, vitamins and nutrients such as calcium and zinc. Using Brown Rice Flour when baking pet treats, does result in a crunchier treat.
Sweet Potatoes are loaded with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients. They are rich in Vitamin A, C and E, Vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B6, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium. They also contain valuable anti-inflammatory nutrients.
Bananas are creamy, rich, and sweet to a dog’s palate and provide superior nutrition with several essential amino acids, electrolytes, minerals, vitamins B6 and C, potassium, fiber, and manganese. Dogs recuperating from illness or injury benefit as bananas assist in maintaining normal blood pressure, heart function, fluid balance, and digestive tract function.
Parsley is high in Vitamin A and C and provides a number of important health benefits for your dog. It can act to purify blood by accelerating the excretion of toxins from the body, reduce allergy symptoms and blood pressure. Parsley is also a perfect natural breath freshener for dogs.

A 3m FAVORITE – FRUIT ‘n’ VEGGIE TREATS
3 cups brown rice flour
2 tbsp. dry milk
½ tsp. baking powder (gluten, aluminum free)
½ cup sweet potato  – cooked and mashed
1 medium ripe banana – mashed
½ cup Organic Chicken Stock – low sodium
1 tbsp. fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 165° C. (325° F) and line a large cookie tray with parchment paper.
In large bowl, add sweet potato, banana and chicken stock and whisk together.
Stir in dry milk, baking powder and parsley.
Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with heavy spoon or hands to form a stiff, dry dough. Working with flours that lack gluten can be tricky; the dough crumbles and pulls apart easily, if you find you just can’t incorporate all of the crumbles in  the bottom of your mixing bowl, don’t worry, in the next step, you will be able to bring it all together).
Turn dough out onto lightly floured (brown rice) surface – make a little indentation in the middle of the dough and spoon those hard to incorporate flour crumbles into the dough. Fold in the sides of the dough, over the indentation and briefly knead and press the dough until it all comes together smoothly.
Roll dough between ¼ – ½ inch thickness, and using a cookie cutter or a sharp knife, cut out shapes and place shapes on cookie tray.
Repeat the process of knead, roll, cut and place until all the dough is used.
If you like, gently press the tines of a fork into each treat.
Bake for 40 – 45 minutes (depends on your oven).
Remove from oven and place treats on wire cooling rack to cool.
Yield about 25 large treats or 50 medium size 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 these Fruit ‘n’ Veggie Treats only 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.
