Recipe Friday – Cheesey Veggie Bites For Dogs
Your dog should love this tasty treat and have them coming back for more. I will post both the regular recipe and the gluten free recipe.
- 3 Cups White Whole-Wheat Flour (or use 2 1/2 to 3 cups of rice flour for gluten free)
- 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
- 3 Teaspoons Minced Fresh Parsley (can help with bad breath)
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Carrots
- 1/4 Cup Shredded Cheese (your choice)
- 1 jar of Sweet Potato Baby Food (organic preferred, gluten free for those with allergies)
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1/2 Cup Water
1. Preheat oven 350 degrees.
2. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
3. Mix together parsley, carrots, cheese, baby food and oil.
4. Combine the dry ingredients separately from the veggie mixture.
5. Slowly add 1/2 c. water, then the veggie mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well.
6. Dough should be moist but not wet. Knead for a minute.
7. Roll out dough to 1/4″ thickness. Using a knife, cut out bite size pieces (depending on the size of your dog, the bite size will be either smaller or larger).
8. Bake 15-30 minutes until bites have browned and hardened slightly. (It will all depend on the site of the bites how long they will need to cook. You may notice you need to cook them considerably shorter or longer).
9. Store in an airtight container on counter after thoroughly cooled, for up to 2 weeks. Waiting until cooled is an important step; condensation can build and the moisture will cause treats to mold. For longer storage, store in an airtight container in fridge for up to a month. If you wish longer storage, you can pack them in freezer bags for up to 6 months.
