Believe it or not, sometimes our dogs can get bored of their dog food that they eat practically every day. But it doesn’t always have to be that way. There are recipes out there that are filled with “people food” that even dogs can eat.
If you’ve ever wanted to make your dog a special food that you made with love, we decided to give you the recipe!
Here is a recipe we picked out for sweet potato cookies:
Prep time: 45 minutes
- 1 1/2 cups oat flour
- 1 1/2 cups brown rice flour
- 2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
- 1 cup oat bran
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook and mash the sweet potatoes. You can bake them or microwave them as you prefer. Put them in the food processor to make them smooth after cooking.
Combine all ingredients and mix together until a dough forms. Roll out onto a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter or knife to cut into individual pieces.
Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil for easier cleanup.
Put the cookie pieces on foil-lined cookie sheet and place in oven.
Bake cookies for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove and allow to cool on a wirerack. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
