Carrot Cake Homemade Dog Treats

These easy Homemade Dog Treats are made with some of your favorite carrot cake ingredients, but healthy for your fur baby!
 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup applesauce (plain, unsweetened, without any additives)
  • 1/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter (raw and natural, unsalted and unsweetened, and free of any flavors and xylitol)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups oat flour (plus 1/2 cup more if necessary and for dusting)
  • 1 cup grated carrots (peeled first)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened natural)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the applesauce, almond butter, and eggs together until blended.
  • Add in the oat flour, carrots, and coconut flakes until just incorporated. (If you pinch a piece and it crumbles, add a little water. If it’s really sticky, you’ll need to add a little more oat flour, 1/4 cup at a time and not exceeding 1/2 cup. You want the dough slightly tacky, but not overly.) 
  • Transfer the dough to a surface lightly sprinkled with oat flour and knead 3-4 times until it comes together.
  • Using a rolling pin sprinkled with oat flour, roll out the dough to a 1/2-inch thickness.
  • Using cookie cutters, cut out the desired shapes and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  • Place in the oven and bake until the treats are dry and edges are golden, about 18-20 minutes.
  • Let cool completely.
