Nutrient Packed Green Goodies

Eating your veggies is a great way to keep up on vitamins and minerals, and it is for your dog too! But just like us, most dogs don’t want to sit around and eat a bowl of spinach. These deceptively yummy dog treats pack in a lot of nutrients and your dog will love them!

Ingredients:

  • ½ Medium Zucchini, cubed
  • ½ C. Spinach
  • 2 Tbsp. Applesauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ C. Oats
  • 1 ¼ C. Whole Wheat Flour

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and line baking sheet with parchment.
  2. In a blender combine zucchini, spinach, applesauce, peanut butter, and egg. Blend until smooth.
  3. Transfer liquid to a bowl and add in oats. Stir to combine.
  4. Add 1 cup of flour and stir until a ball begins to form. Begin kneading by hand and continue adding flour until dough is smooth and doesn’t stick to your hands.
  5. On a floured surface, roll out the dough and cut into desired shapes.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until treats are firm. You can leave the treats in the oven longer if you would like a harder treat, but most dogs prefer softs ones.
  7. Store at room temperature in an airtight container for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
