I have a confession to make: I don't cook with ease. What I mean is, I am not a natural in the kitchen, therefore, I follow a recipe to the tee. I've been working on my fear of mistakes in the kitchen, but I have noticed I find myself being freer when I'm cooking for the dogs. When it comes to dog treats or food, I am a rock star! Check out these amazing dog treats I made yesterday. The pups LOVED them!
Ander's Apple Cheddar Dog Treats:
1/2 cup natural applesauce, no sugar added
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of enriched white flour or whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. backing soda
1/2 tsp. turmeric powder (Wonderful antioxidant!)
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 medium-sized apple, peeled, chopped and cored
1/4 cup unsalted walnuts, chopped
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients. With a teaspoon, drop the dough onto greased cookie sheet, allowing about 1 inch between each treat. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes. Cookies should be firm to the touch. Let cookies sit 2 hours to harden.
Makes approximately 40 treats.
Remember, because there are no preservatives in these treats, store in an air tight container for up to one week. Freeze if going to keep for a longer period.
