Treat Your Pup to Deliciously Homemade Snacks
Does your pup have an undying love for treats? If so, you’re not alone! Many pet owners like to reward their pooch with something special from time to time. However, store-bought treats can be packed with unhealthy ingredients that aren’t ideal for your pup’s diet. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to make homemade dog treats that your pup will love. Let’s take a closer look at a few recipes by Suzie’s Pet Treats that you can try at home.
Homemade Dog Treat Recipes That Will Make Your Pup Smile
Sweet Potato Bites
This recipe is a great way to combine two of your pup’s favorite things—sweet potatoes and peanut butter—into one delicious treat. To make these tasty bites, start by preheating the oven to 350°F. Then, mix together 1 cup of canned sweet potatoes, ½ cup of creamy peanut butter (make sure it doesn’t contain xylitol!), 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and ¼ cup of water in a large bowl until fully combined. Lastly, roll the dough into small bite-sized balls and place them on an ungreased baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mats. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and allow them to cool before serving.
Banana & Oats Biscuit Bites
These biscuit bites are another quick and easy way to give your pup something special he or she will love! Start by preheating the oven to 350°F and then mash one ripe banana in a large bowl until smooth. Next, add ½ cup rolled oats (use certified gluten-free oats if necessary), ¼ teaspoon baking powder, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or melted coconut oil, and 1 tablespoon honey into the mashed banana until fully combined. Spoon out small amounts onto an ungreased baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mats and flatten slightly before baking for 16 minutes or until golden brown. Allow them to cool completely before serving them up as snacks or treats!
Apple & Cinnamon Bites
These apple cinnamon bites are perfect for when you want to spoil your furry friend but don’t have too much time on your hands! Preheat the oven to 350°F then mix together 1 cup grated apples (no seeds!), 2 tablespoons honey, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or melted coconut oil, ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, and 1 egg in a large bowl until fully combined. Scoop out small amounts onto an ungreased baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mats then bake for 18 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Allow them to cool completely before giving them out as rewards!
In the end
Making homemade dog treats is easy and fun—not to mention healthier than store-bought options! The next time you want something special for your pup that’s simple yet delicious, why not consider trying one of these recipes? Your pup will thank you later!
