Five Ingredient Rice Treats

Wouldn’t you like to be able to use up leftover grains and also create a nutrient dense and healthy treat for your dog?

Luckily you can with this versatile rice-based recipe. I like wild rice because it is a good source of protein and fiber but you can also use brown rice or quinoa.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 C. Whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 C. Wild rice or rice of choice. I like this Minnesota grown variety because they keep their nutritious hulls and I’m a MN girl 🙂
  • 1/4 Tsp. Baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. Peanut butter

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine all ingredients and mix until a ball begins to form and there is no dry flour left.
  3. Use a teaspoon sized ice cream scoop, or just a teaspooon, and fill your baking sheet with little dough balls.
  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a golden crust begins to form.
  5. Allow to cool compeltely and store at room temperature for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to two months.
