Ever since getting my little Vizsla puppy I have been doing my best to set aside time to make some homemade treats.
I did some online research, pretty much googled dog treat recipes. I did come across some great recipes to get me started.
I am not necessarily keeping Jax’s diet gluten free or anything but when I am making him treats I do plan on doing them gluten free. Since that is how I like to eat, why not let him eat that way with me.
This was my first attempt at making gluten free dog treats. It is something that I have always wanted to do but never did. I must say I am very proud of myself for finally trying it.
I cut them into the little cubes before I cut them into bite size treats for Jax.
The recipe is pretty simple to make based out of oats and peanut butter with some coconut oil mixed in there.
I am learning that Jax really loves soft and chewy treats instead of hard ones, so I kept these soft and chewy.
I also put some chicken broth in there for more flavor. Since I know dog’s love flavors like chicken and such.
- 1 cup oats (gluten free ones)
- 3/4 cup potato starch
- 1 1/4 cup amaranth flour (or brown rice flour)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy kind)
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup chicken broth
- Place all ingredients into a large bowl.
- Stir till combined.
- It will be very sticky!
- Spread batter onto a parchment lined baking tray and spread. Be patient as it might be a little tough to spread fast.
- Have oven preheated to 350 degrees.
- These bake for about 20 minutes.
Here is what they end up looking like – bite-size treats of my little puppy.
Basically after they cooled I cut them into even smaller bite-size treats.
These dog treats were gone in about a week.
Jax really enjoyed them. I do plan on making more recipes just playing around with some more ideas. I will share more over time.
