Equipment Needed for Carrot Dog Treats Recipe

How to Make Crunchy Carrot & Oatmeal Dog Biscuits

1.     Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2.     Grind the oatmeal into a fine flour like substance in a food processor or Ninja.

3.     Add the peanut butter and carrots, blend well. You may have to take it all out and stir it to get it to fully combine into a dough.

4.     Roll the dough out onto a clean, flat surface to ¼ inch thickness. You may have to lightly flour it to get it to roll better.

5.     Cut shapes into the dough, then place them onto the baking sheet.

6.     Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden.

7.     Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

8.     Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Storage

After baking, let them cool fully. Any leftover heat in the treats can generate condensation when placed in a container or bag. This makes the treats soggy and spoils them faster. These dry, crunchy treats can be kept at room temperature for up to 10 days, refrigerated for 4 weeks, or frozen for up to 2 months.

Carrot Oat Dog Treats FAQs

Are these homemade Oat dog treats safe?

Yes! These snacks are made entirely of oat flour, carrots, and peanut butter, all of which are completely safe for dogs.

Are carrots good for dogs?

Carrots are good for dogs. They contain beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. As a result, Vitamin A is a necessary component for good vision. Vitamin A promotes healthy bone formation and immune system function in dogs. Also, cooking carrots maximizes their Vitamin A content. Finally, carrots’ high dietary fiber content helps your dog’s digestive system. Carrots are also high in water content, which aids in your dog’s digestion.

Can I freeze homemade dog biscuits?

You can certainly freeze them. Frozen dog treats can be stored for up to two months. You can reheat the treats in the oven and allow them to cool before giving them to your dog.

What if my dog biscuits aren’t crunchy?

If no longer crunchy, inspect the treat before giving it to your dog. If it appears to be soggy, not crunchy, discolored, or moldy, don’t give it to dogs and toss them away.
