Vegan Dog Treat Recipe

Vegan Dog Treat Recipe

Publish date:     Author: with insights from Pooneh Ram, DDS and Dr. Paris Sabo
Topics: coconut oil,  dental care,  dog,  pet,  recipe,  

Tomorrow's the big day! You know, National Dog Day! Bake this simple, sweet potato dog treat recipe to show your pooch how much they mean to you! 

INGREDIENTS

  •  2 cups rolled oats or quick oats
  • 1/2 cup cooked sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons water

PREP TIME: 5 MINS
COOK TIME: 25 MINS
MAKES: ABOUT 34 COOKIES

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat the oven to 350°F
  2. Add the oats to a food processor and process until they are a course flour like consistency.
  3. Add the cooked sweet potato and the coconut oil.
  4. Process until well combined.
  5. Add the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing in between each addition until the mixture can be squeezed into a dough with your fingers.
  6. Tip out and knead together a bit so it's all in a big firm ball.
  7. Roll out to about 3 - 4 mm thick on surface sprinkled with flour to keep the dough from sticking. If your dog is wheat intolerant be sure to use oat flour (just process a few more oats until they are flour). You can also roll it out between two sheets of parchment paper if you prefer.
  8. Cut out into cookie shapes using a cookie cutter or just cut the dough into even pieces with a knife or pizza cutter.
  9. Carefully transfer the cookies to a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes. Keep an eye on them toward the end as they go from just right to slightly over done very quickly.
  10. Place on a cooling rack and store in an airtight container. 

    NOTES

    • These cookies keep well in an airtight container for a few weeks.
    • These dog treats are dairy-free and wheat-free!
