  • Salt-Free Dog Treats
    My beloved fur baby was recently put on a very strict salt free diet. Anyone have a recipe for treats without salt? This of course leaves out cheese, peanut butter - all the goodies :)

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Apple Cinnamon Drops

    1 Large Apple
    1/4 C Honey
    1/2 C Water
    1/2 Tea. Cinnamon
    1 C Oatmeal
    1 1/2 C Wheat Flour
    1/4 C Wheat Flour

    Preheat oven to 350
    Core, slice and mince the apple (use a food processor if you have one). In a large bowl, combine the minced apple bits, honey, water, cinnamon, and oatmeal. Gradually blend in the wheat flour, adding enough to form a stiff dough.
    Spoon the dough by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches (5cm) apart. Using the bottom of a glass dipped in the wheat flour (to prevent sticking), flatten each spoonful of dough into a circle. Adjust the size of the drops based on how big a treat you like to feed your dog.
    Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and flip each cookie to brown evenly on both sides. Reduce oven temperature to 325. Return to oven and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
    ~~ My girls (dogs of course) love this....and it smells sooooo good baking.

    The 1/4 cup is for dipping the glass into to flatten the balls or they will stick to the glass.

    I make these for my granddog and he loves them. Found the recipe on allrecipes.com

    BIRTHDAY BONES
    2 cups whole wheat flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 cup unsalted natural peanut butter
    1 cup skim milk

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    DIRECTIONS:
    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Stir together the flour and baking powder; set aside.
    In a medium bowl, mix together the peanut butter and milk. Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into shapes using cookie cutters. Place 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
    Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks

    It should be by the regular peanut butter. I buy the Teddie brand, not sure if it's carried in your area.
