Carrot and Apple Dog Treats
I just made up a batch of carrot and apple today. The dogs love them. Sorry to say, I do not measure ingredients, so all of my dog treats are slightly different. Here's what you'll need:
- 8 carrots
- 2 apples
- mechanical juicer
- wheat bran
- wheat flour
Juice about 8 carrots using a mechanical juicer. Place the carrot juice and pulp together in a large bowl.
Juice 2 apples and add the juice to your mixture. I don't like using the apple pulp as it makes the treats difficult to cut.
Add about 2-3 cups of wheat bran.
Add enough wheat flour to the mixture to make a dry dough.
Kneed the dough, adding more flour as necessary to create a dry but pliable dough.
Flour a large area and roll the dough to approximately 1/4 inch thick.
Place the now flattened dough onto a sheet of parchment paper.
Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into bite size squares. I use a cookie sheet to guide the pizza cutter for straight lines.
Bake on cookie sheet or a stone at 250 F until dry and crispy.
Remove from oven and cool on a rack. Break apart after it cools and serve.
