This is one of those easy recipes that you can do in 10 minutes’ time, that are filled with all kinds of goodness and health benefits. Who knew dog treats could be so healthy!
Are apples good for dogs?
Apples are a terrific source of vitamin C, fiber, calcium and phosphorus for our dogs. They are a safe way for dogs I like sweets and like to crunch things.
Chewing on apples can also help to clean your dog’s teeth.
For this recipe, it is best to cut into slices or pieces, so it’s easier for your dog to chew. Never give your dog the seeds, they contain cyanide, which is a toxic substance.
You’ll also want to keep the apple core, including the stem away from your dog so it doesn’t choke.
How to Make Soft and Fruity Treats
- Rolled Oats
In addition, oatmeal contains linoleic acid, an omega-6 acid that’s good for your dog’s healthy skin and coat.
For this recipe, we’re using dried cranberries, which are just as beneficial for a dog as fresh cranberries.
In this recipe we are grating about ¼ of an apple being careful to remove the seeds and apple core.
Just a tablespoon of water helps to bind the ingredients for the Soft & Fruity Dog Treats.
For this recipe, you'll begin by grating a quarter of an apple.
Next, using a NutriBullet, blender or any food processor, take your rolled oats and ground them into a flour like substance.
Add the cranberries into your processor and grind them into small pieces.
Add your remaining oats and the shredded apple into the bowl and mix it by hand until well stirred.
If they aren't sticky enough, add water to get to a consistency where they stick together.
Form your balls based on the size of your pet. Small pets = small balls, large pets = large balls.
