How to Make Vegan Dog Treats Using Leftover Juice Pulp
Instead of tossing all that leftover juice pulp, use it to make a healthy treat your dog will love.
|juice pulp||2 cups||we used carrot, apple and ginger|
|rolled oats||1 cup||organic|
|peanut butter||1/3 cup||all natural|
|flax seeds||2 tablespoons||whole|
|flax seeds||2 tablespoons||ground|
|coconut oil||1 tablespoons||organic|
Preheat your oven to 275° F.
Blend the juice pulp, peanut butter, flax, and coconut oil in a food processor, high powered blender on low or in a mixer, slowly adding the oats. After all ingredients have been added, increase speed and mix until well combined and a pliable dough has formed.
Roll out the dough and use cookie cutters or press into silicone molds.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake for about 60 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
Experiment with different juice pulp ingredients, just make sure it’s safe for dogs and your dog is not allergic.
Speak to your veterinarian if you have concerns about which foods are best for your dog or before making any changes to your pets diet.
Stays fresh for a week to ten days stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
The amount of treats will depend on the size of your cookie cutter or mold.
You can use 1/4 cup of ground flax seeds if you do not have the whole seeds on hand. If you have whole flax seeds, you can use a coffee grinder to grind them. Grinding the flax seeds makes the nutrients more easily absorbed.
