Posted by bravectosouthafrica - 14 December 2018

Humans don’t have to be the only ones who can enjoy baked goodies this holiday season. Christmas time is around the corner, which means festivities, family and a whole lot of food! We’re here to make sure your pooch can also enjoy a healthy feast of their own, so they don’t have to beg for leftovers or longingly stare at the dinner table.

Dog Treat Recipe One: Apple Mint Christmas Dog Treats

This mint flavoured dog treat recipe is a combination of all things delicious! The added mint aids digestion in your pooch and helps to control bad breath!

What you need:

Dough machine or mixer
1 ½ cups of whole wheat flour
1 cup of unbleached whole wheat flour
½ cup of rolled oats
2 tablespoons of dry milk
⅓ cup of oat bran
1 ½ teaspoon of dry baking yeast
2 tablespoons of chopped spearmint leaves
½ cup of applesauce
2 teaspoons of green or red powdered food colouring (for the Christmas spirit!)
⅞ of cups water

What to do:

Pre-heat oven at 120 °C.
Place all the ingredients in the bread machine or mixer.
When the dough is ready, roll it flat with a non-stick rolling pin.
Using your preferred cookie cutter shape, cut the dough into mini treats.
Bake treats for about an hour but also check that they aren’t too brown.
Allow the treats to cool down and dry completely.
Serve to your pooch!

Dog Treat Recipe Two: Peanut Butter Pumpkin Treats

What better way to get festive than the scent of freshly baked goods flowing through the house! Maybe the peanut butter and pumpkin combo doesn’t necessarily make you want to lick the spoon, but we’re sure it will leave your dog drooling for more.

What you need:

1 cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
½ cup of rolled oats
3 cups of whole wheat flour (can substitute with brown rice flour or gluten-free flour)

In a small bowl, stir together the flour, oats and cinnamon.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin and peanut butter until combined.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry.
Pour mixture onto a floured surface and roll out the dough.
Cut out with a cookie cutter
Bake for 30 – 35 minutes until golden brown.

Dog Treat Recipe Three: Snowflake Cookie Dog Treat Recipe
