Kurgo Holiday Cookbook: Homemade Holiday Dog Treats by Lemons & Basil

Posted by

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh sweet potato puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 tbsp all natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional)


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Peel and cube two medium sweet potatoes and bring to a boil in pot of water. Reduce to low and simmer approximately 15-20 minutes or until soft. Drain cooked potatoes and puree using blender or food processor.
  3. In small bowl, stir together the flour, oats, and cinnamon.
  4. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the egg, sweet potato, and peanut butter until combined. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
  5. Pour onto a floured surface and roll dough out to 1/2 - 2/3 inch thick. Cut out using Christmas cookie cutters. The dough will be a little sticky - dust your hands and the rolling pin with a little flour to help!
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown.
  7. Place on cooling racks and let cool thoroughly. They will harden as they cool.


Tips:

The salt can be added to help extend the shelf life of these treats, but is not necessary. Do not use a pumpkin spice blend, or anything that may contain nutmeg, as it is toxic to dogs, even in small amounts. I used fairly small cookie cutters and got 45 treats! Your cookie cutter size will determine your quantity.
