Homemade soft dog treats

I made applesauce the other day. It’s officially Fall in PA, and we even went apple picking to celebrate. Apple cobbler, apple scrap vinegar, apples with caramel - mmm, apples.

I love all things Fall, but one thing I do without a doubt every year is make applesauce. It’s a tradition, passed down from my grandparents, and my brother demands our family recipe every year for his autumn birthday.

I usually compost the apple skins. They come out of my Kitchen Aid sauce attachment like a tube of poo, falling into a bowl, the sauce falling into a second bowl…much like the falling leaves…but this year I looked at them and thought, “dog treats.” So, into the mixing bowl they went, with some brown rice flour, an egg, and a boiled yam. I added some cinnamon to make the treats more fall-ish. Then rolled them out with a generous sprinkle of brown rice flour to keep them from sticking. Sprinkled with rolled oats, rolled again so they’d stick, and baked them in the oven for an hour on 350F.

 They turned out beautifully!

I let them stay in the oven until it cooled and guess what? They came out soft! I keep them in the fridge but they won’t last long. The weens are going CRAZY for these apple-cinnamon treats.
