Soft Dog Treats

Soft dog treats should be reserved as a special occasion snack, due to dogs needing harder crunch power, for keeping their teeth clean.

If you own older dogs that already have dental problems, then you may be interested in a soft, homemade dog cookie recipe.

These 2 recipes are eagerly gobbled up by my Golden Retrievers!

Soft Spicy Dog Treats

1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 TBSP brown sugar
1 egg
2 cups wheat flour
2 teas baking soda
1 teas ginger
1 teas cinnamon
1/2 teas cloves

Mix wheat flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves.

In a separate bowl, blend honey, applesauce, brown sugar, and egg. Add in flour mixture and stir well.

Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.

Soft Peanut Butter & Banana Treats

3/4 c. mashed bananas
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 c. peanut butter

1 & 1/2 cups quick oats

Stir the first 4 ingredients together, with a wooden spoon. Mix in the oats and drop by heaping teaspoon onto a cookie sheet. Press flat.
