Perhaps there's not a dog on earth who doesn't enjoy a bite-sized snack every now and then. Like a human, however, a dog who's overfed will become overweight. Rather than depriving your dog of tasty treats, give him homemade low-calorie treats instead of the high-calorie ones sold in stores. If you love to share everything with your dog, you'll be happy to know that these are treats you can also eat.
- Skill level:
- Moderately Easy
Things you need
- 1 1/2 cups of beef, chicken or vegetable broth
- 3 tbsp corn oil
- 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup cornmeal
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 2 tbsp chopped red bell peppers
- 1/2 cup chopped carrots
- Wooden spoon
- 1/2 cup flour
- Rolling pin
- Cookie cutter
- Non-stick cookie sheet
- Wire rack
Preheat the oven to 176 degrees C.
Pour the water and oil into the bowl. Stir in the remaining ingredients until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
Sprinkle a flat surface with a light layer of flour. Fold the dough onto this surface and knead it for 3 minutes to ensure that the treats will be the right consistency.
Use the rolling pin to flatten the dough into a sheet 1/4-inch thick. Cut out shapes using the cookie cutter and place the treats on the cookie sheet.
Bake the treats for 30 minutes. Cool them on a wire rack before giving them to your dog.
