I’m so excited to share with you some of my favorite products and tips that are helping me to continue my zero waste lifestyle with Foxy by my side. Lots of dog treats and biscuits I came across at the pet store came packaged in plastic, and were also packed with wacky ingredients and preservatives. These biscuits are made from just four wholesome ingredients, so I can feel good about feeding them to her.
Here’s the recipe (makes about 30 dog treats):
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. If using a banana, mash until no longer chunky in the bowl first before adding other ingredients. If omitting the banana, you may need to increase the amount of stock you use. Start by using the amount called for, then increase as needed. You’re looking for a smooth, cohesive dough that is not too sticky.
Lightly flour your work surface with whole wheat flour and roll out dough to a ¼ inch thickness. Use the dog bone shaped cookie cutter to cut out little cookies. You can also simply use a knife or pizza cutter to cut whatever shapes your doggo will like.
Bake for 16 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of your treats, until golden brown. If you use parchment paper, make sure to compost it!
Allow to cool fully before feeding to your drooling dog who’s probably been hanging around the kitchen waiting for you to “accidentally” drop scraps on the ground. Store treats in an airtight container for up to a week, or freeze the extras to keep for up to a month!
