Baking Homemade Dog Treats: Banana-Almond and Diabetic-Friendly Liver Treats
We’ve been cooking up beg worthy snacks here in our kitchen. Baking your own treats is fun and easy, plus they can be way healthier than the store-bought kind . In this very first episode of "Canine Cuisine" we will make a banana-almond sweet treat and a diabetic-friendly liver treat.
The first recipe is from prettyfluffy.com.
¾ cup unsalted almond butter
⅓ of a banana
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1. Pre-heat oven to 350° Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Use a fork to mash the banana in a medium/large size bowl. Once mashed, add in the rest of the ingredients and mix together with a fork until blended. The batter consistency should be very thick and gooey – this will not resemble your normal treat dough.
3. Spoon out dime sized dollops onto your parchment paper and place in the oven for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, turn the pan and bake for another 5 minutes.
The diabetic-friendly liver treat recipe is from allrecipes.com.
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 pounds beef liver, cut into pieces
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan with parchment paper.
2. Place the liver into a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. If you have room, add the flour and eggs, and process until smooth. Otherwise, transfer to a bowl, and stir in the flour and eggs using a wooden spoon. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.
3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the center is firm. Cool, and cut into squares using a pizza cutter. The treats will have a consistency similar to a sponge. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
