Oat, Banana, Carrot, and Parsley Dog Treats

Oat, Banana, Carrot, and Parsley Dog Treats

Grace ate her last dog treat this morning so I decided to make her a new batch. She has loved both the peanut butter treats and the apple, bacon, and cheddar treats that I’ve previously made but I decided to try something different this time. I liked the idea of this recipe because you use blended oats as the flour along with some other healthy ingredients like carrot, banana, egg, olive oil, and breath-freshening parsley. The dough was a bit sticky but I just made sure to use a well-floured surface and added a bit when needed. These dog treats baked in 40 minutes and Grace was so excited to try one! She gobbled it down in seconds and every crumb too…I’d say she likes them.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place the oats in a blender and pulse until it becomes a flour-like consistency. Pour into a large bowl and add the fresh parsley, grated carrots, mashed banana, egg, and olive oil.

Mix until well combined and knead until moistened. Turn dough onto a well-floured surface. Use your hands to flatten the dough and shape it into a circle 1/4 inch thick, using a bit of flour if needed. Use a small dog bone cutter to cut out treats.

    I have to try this !! I have two dogs and they would be happy with these !
    xo

  2. That is such an adorable picture of Grace! Those dog treats sound like people treats to me…or, at least without the parsley, they do. She’s so lucky to have you fussing over the bone cookie cutter!

  3. Appears to be a great recipe but you failed to mention oven temperature. I gather medium-low bc of long bake time?

    1. Mariko,

      So sorry! I just fixed the recipe. Bake at 325 degrees.

  4. i do a double take every time you show grace! she and marleau are indeed very similar, and i know he would devour these. 🙂

  5. How many calories Pam,

    cheers

    Just making these. Added cinnamon for inflammatory purposes and it goes well with bananas! They smell awesome and were really easy to make.

    My guess is that my baby, Lexii will love them! They’ll be done in 30 minutes, plus cooling down time for hardening. I’m rating the recipe early assuming they’ll be a big winner. If I don’t come back with a change in the comment, the 5-star rating holds!

  7. Is it okay to use dried parsley?

    1. Shan,

      I’ve never tried it but I assume it would work fine. Just use much less, maybe a 1/4 cup. Dried herbs are more potent than fresh herbs. Let me know how they turn out if you give the recipe a try.

    Have made them multiple times now! I add 2 tbsp. Of chia seeds and flax seeds. Sometimes as a special treat I Use 1 Tbsp. Of bacon grease (usually fresh with no nitrates or nitrites used). I have also substituted fresh carrot tops instead of parsley when I don’t have any. There fantastic and use as gifts too!

    1. Erica,

      I’m so glad you enjoy the recipe. Your additions sound like a great idea.
