Today’s Dog Treat Recipe

BEEF SNAX – Wheat and Gluten Free
Did you know?
Beef is a unique, special food. It offers a vast array of vitamins, minerals and protein, all essential for your dog’s healthy diet. Some of the important vitamins found in beef include several B vitamins, B12, folate, thiamine, and riboflavin. B vitamins are known to help maintain your dog’s metabolism, immune system and blood glucose levels. In addition to these essential vitamins, beef also offers vitamins E, K, and D. Vitamin E is an important antioxidant, and Vitamin K is vital to blood clotting and bone health. The minerals found in beef include, iron, a key mineral that helps get oxygen to all body cells, potassium, calcium, zinc, and magnesium, important for many essential body functions, including muscle, bone, and cellular functions.
Beef is a great source of protein, providing your dog with long lasting energy.

Beef Snax

BEEF SNAX – Wheat and Gluten Free
500 grams (1 lb) minced beef (ground beef)
1/2 apple, grated
1/2 cup carrots, shredded and chopped
1/2 cup pumpkin, shredded and chopped
1 small to medium sweet potato, steamed, peeled and mashed
1/2 cup oats, gluten free
1 large egg
Preheat your oven to 180° C (350° F) and line a jelly roll tin with parchment paper.
Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl.
Press and work mixture into the jelly roll tin, it should be approximately 1/2 inch thick.
Bake for 40 – 45 minutes.
Remove from the oven and reduce oven temperature to 110° C (230° F).
Using a sharp knife or a pastry cutter, score the treats into squares or shapes, 1 inch x 1 inch or 2 inches x 1 inch, depending on your dog.
Flip the treats once you’ve cut them and then return the tin to the oven.
Bake for another 40 minutes.
These Beef Snax brown quickly, so check them often, you don’t want them to burn (oven temperatures vary).
Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on a wire cooling rack.
Yield: lots!
Beef Snax -2

I doubled the ingredients listed above and made 2 trays of Beef Snax

Storage, Refrigeration and Freezing instructions:
Store
in zip lock bags or air tight containers in your refrigerator.
Allow to come to room temperature before feeding.
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 will also determine the storage time.
Refrigeration will prolong the life of home-made dog treats.
Freeze for up to 6 months – Always allow treats to thaw completely before feeding.

Feed these BEEF SNAX 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.

      Hi, thanks so much for reading and commenting. The 3m’s hope your sweet girl enjoys these yummy beef snax as much as they do.
      A lot of their favorite treats/recipes use same to similar ingredients for a reason 🙂 Our baby girl, Matilda, can be picky with taste and texture, when she gives a treat her tick of approval, we know we are doing OK.
