Recently, I created and shared a healthy, delicious homemade dog treat recipe I call Autumn Treats. I call them Autumn Treats because they use classic autumn ingredients (like pumpkin) and well, my dog’s name happens to be Autumn.

Autumn and her friend Maggie loved them and as a result, I needed to make a second round… this time, I made a variation of the first recipe. This version was as tasty as the first, or so I am told by my furry taste testers.

Watch the video clip to see my two tasters sample this recipe! Then scroll down to get the recipe for your own sweeties.

 


Enjoy.

Let me help you find a better diet for your beloved dog!

Here are some notes about this recipe.

Good for Any Age. When cooked, these treats are on the soft, crumbly side. That means they are appropriate for any aged dog, even an older sweetie who can’t chew that well.

Nice Batter. When making the cookies, I noticed the batter is on the dry side, soft and silky to the touch – not slimy like some batters. So it was nice to work with. Create cookies by just squeezing a small amount in your hand to form a small ball or patty shape.

A Little Crumbly. This recipe came out a little on the dry and crumbly side. It doesn’t bother me, but if you want to avoid crumbs entirely, try shaping appropriately-sized bite-sized cookies that your dog can have in one shot. I am also formulating a variation on this recipe, so stay tuned for that.

No Preservatives. With no preservatives, these cookies should be refrigerated or frozen. Keep in fridge for up to 4-5 days, or just freeze the batch and take out a few at a time as needed.

Flexibility. To increase your flexibility, I am offering a couple options for the ingredients. For example, you might use apples or applesauce, coconut flour or almond flour, etc. Keeping things easy is a good thing!
