Today’s Dog Treat Cookie Recipe

Did you know?
are definitely the most nutrition rich veggie available to dogs right now.
Packed with Vitamins A, K and C, carrots pack a powerful antioxidant punch. Additionally, carrots help a dog’s vision, heart, and blood sugar levels as well as providing distilled natural oils to naturally guard your dog from worms.
Apples contain calcium and phosphorus, and they also add to a dog’s skin and coat health by adding omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids to your dog’s diet. Dogs with sensitive digestion are said to tolerate apples well. NOTE: NEVER feed your dog apple seeds. They contain AMYGDLIN a form of CYANIDE, which is very poisonous to every living thing. Cyanide prevents the blood from carrying oxygen throughout the body.
Oats are high in Protein, soluble fiber (the fiber that helps keep cholesterol levels low), iron, manganese, zinc, and B vitamins (pantothenic acid, B5, and folate, B9). Oats benefit several body organs and systems, including: skin, nervous system, stomach, spleen, lungs, and the urinary and reproductive systems.
Cinnamon is antifungal; it works to combat candida albicans, the fungus that often causes yeast infections (skin and ears) in your dog. These infections are often resistant to medication, but not to Cinnamon. Dogs who suffer from allergies are often prone to yeast infections.
Wheat Free Carrot and Apple Clusters
2 cups Brown Rice Flour
2 cups Rolled Oats – gluten free
2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 cup finely grated Carrot
3/4 cup Apple sauce, unsweetened
2 Eggs – lightly beaten
1/4 cup Water
3 tbsp. Molasses
Preheat oven to 180° C (350° F) and line two cookie trays with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the rice flour, rolled oats, and cinnamon.
In a small bowl, combine the grated carrot, apple sauce, eggs, water and molasses.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the carrot/apple mixture.
Mix thoroughly together until it is well combined and is a semi-moist consistency.
Using 2 teaspoons, drop teaspoon sized clusters onto the cookie tray.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove trays from the oven and leave the clusters to rest on the cookie trays for 5 – 10 minutes.
Remove clusters from the cookie trays and place on wire cooling racks to cool completely.
Yield is approximately 6 dozen teaspoon size treats.
You can make them as small or as big as you like. Just remember, the smaller the treat, reduce the baking time by 5-10 minutes; the larger the treat, increase the cooking time by 5-10 minutes. If you do change the size, it might be an idea to check the treats as they are cooking.
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 WHEAT FREE CARROT AND APPLE CLUSTERS 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.
