Two-Ingredient Homemade Dog Treats

My sweet Caesar boy got a bath the other day. Although he was extremely well behaved, I know it isn't exactly the most pleasant experience for a dog. For that reason, I thought he deserved to be rewarded afterwards.

Not too long ago I saw a Facebook post about homemade dog treats, so I decided to give my own easier version a try. These treats took only a few minutes to mix together


Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups Oatmeal
  • 2 4oz jars Turkey/Chicken & Sweet Potato/Pumpkin Baby Food (make sure that baby food doesn't contain garlic, onion, or other ingredients which may be harmful to your dog. 
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Grind up the oatmeal in a food processor.  
  3. Add the baby food to the food processor and combine with the oatmeal to create a thick mixture. 
  4. Use a spoon to drop balls of the oatmeal mixture onto a baking sheet. I did tablespoon sized balls for my big guy. 
  5. Bake for approximately 20-22 minutes. Smaller sized treats will require less time. 
  6. Cool completely and store in refrigerator. Recipe yields about 15 tablespoon-sized treats.

Caesar loved how these turned out and I was pretty impressed too! Since they were made with ingredients that I actually eat, I gave them a try too. Yes, I tried dog treats. They weren't bad! Now, I'm looking forward to experimenting with some other treat flavors in the future.


Love, Alex

  6. These seem really easy! I have made them before with a different recipe and they were really difficult because it required hand kneading...why I did that to myself I will never know.
