3 Homemade Winter Dog Treats

3 Homemade Winter Dog Treats - Dec 2021

Pumpkin & Banana Treat

Dogs love to eat pumpkins if you give them in a creative way. Pumpkin and banana dog treats will be easy on your pockets too.

Ingredients

  • One ripe banana.
  • Half fresh pumpkin puree
  • One teaspoon honey
  • 1 ½ cup whole wheat flour.
  • Take half a teaspoon of baking powder.

Instructions

Take a ripe banana, pumpkin puree, and honey and mix them in a bigger bowl. Now add a given amount of flour and baking powder to the mixer to make the dough a bit dry. Sprinkle some flour over your cutting board and make smooth rolls.

Spread the rolls like bread and cut them in required shapes and sizes with cookie-cutter molds. Bake these cut cookies in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes until the cookies become a light golden color. Cover the cookies dry with parchment paper before placing them in the oven.

Take cookies out from the oven and let them cool at room temperature.  Store the cookies in an air-tired jar to keep them crunchy.

  • 1/4 cup molasses

Preheat the oven to 350º Combine the flours, baking powder, and spices in a bowl and mix to combine. Add the molasses and applesauce and mix to combine. Add the egg, vanilla, and coconut oil and mix to combine, adding more flour if necessary.
