Several of my dogs like carrots so I decided to try my hand at making carrot dog biscuits. It turns out that even the 2 that don’t care for carrots, like these biscuits. And carrots are one of the good veggies dogs can eat!
Since it’s dog approved, I decided to share it with you!
Carrot Dog Biscuits
- food ingredients
- food processor or blender
- medium bowl
- cookie cutters
- rolling pin
- cookie sheet
- cooling racks
- 1/2 c. ground kibble dog food pieces
- 2 c. grated carrots
- 1/2 c. plain low fat yogurt
- 4 oz. sweet potato apple baby food (you can get variations of the ingredients of this such as pumpkin, carrot, blueberry, etc.)
- 2 c. whole wheat flour
- 1 t. baking powder
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grind the dog kibble to flour consistency with your blender or food processor
- Mix powdered dog food, grated carrots, yogurt, and baby food into a medium bowl.
- Add the baking powder and flour and mix well.
- Take the dough and roll it in a ball.
- Place the dough ball on a floured surface and roll it out to about 1/4 inch thick.
- Bake for 15 minutes, flip the biscuits over and bake another 15 minutes. Keep an eye on it because your oven may bake hotter than mine.
- Place on cookie rack to cool.
- Store in an airtight container.
- These can be stored in the freezer for 3 months.
- They be kept in the fridge for 2 weeks.
- Break these into smaller pieces for tiny dogs like our chihuahuas.
- Roll out the dough on parchment paper to make clean up easier.
- If you don’t have a food processor or blender to process the dog kibble, place in a sealed baggie and hit with a hammer or mallet to get it to a flour consistency.
- I save the leftover crumbs to use as a topper for my dogs’ food. They love it.
Let me know if you give these a try and if your dog likes them!
