Chicken and banana dog treats

Christina Ottaviano

I make my own oat milk, and with the residual oatmeal from that process, I like to bake dog treats. With 4 dachshunds, I prefer to give them homemade treats because I know what’s in them, and it’s ridiculously inexpensive to do. I usually use an egg, but we didn’t have any and to my surprise, the mixture held together beautifully.

Here’s the recipe:

1 cup of oatmeal (I used the leftovers from my oat milk but you could use cooked, fresh oats)

2 cups brown rice flour (I like Arrowhead Mills)

1 very ripe banana

1 5 oz can of chicken

2 tbsp dried parsley (I used my own home grown and dried, but fresh is fine too.)

Combine all ingredients until dough forms a ball, like this.

Dough should stay together in a ball. It it doesn’t, add more rice flour.

Roll your dough out on a generously floured baking sheet. I prefer to use a silicone baking mat, so they don’t stick to the sheet when baked. Roll to 1/4” thickness, then score to the size treats you would like. You could alternatively roll out on the counter, and then use cookie cutters, but it takes much longer and the dogs don’t care! Bake on 350 F for 30 minutes, then turn the heat down to 200 F and bake for an hour. Let the oven cool down completely, about 2 or 3 hours (or even overnight), then take them out. The extra time in the oven after it’s off allows them to dry further without burning.

These treats also work well in a food dehydrator overnight, on the lowest setting. They probably don’t need to stay refrigerated because they’ll be very dry, but you can freeze them or refrigerate them and take out just what you need it if you won’t use them as quickly.

Oatmeal Orange Dog Treats

These treats are quick and easy!

These treats are quick and easy!

I make my own oat milk, simply by adding 1 cup of oatmeal to 3 cups of filtered water in my food processor. The oats that I strain out are still good for making dog biscuits, so each week, I have been coming up with a new recipe based on what I already have on hand.

Leftover Oatmeal Dog Treats

I cup of oatmeal (I used the leftovers from my oat milk but you could use fresh oats)

1 2/3 cups brown rice flour (I like Arrowhead Mills)

Zest and juice from 1/2 orange

1 egg

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Sprinkle the top of the dough if it sticks too much while rolling. Then, score with a knife. Bake on 350 F for 30 minutes, then turn the heat down to 200 F and bake for an hour. Turn off oven, and let the treats stay inside until the oven has cooled. This will help the treats to dry out further without burning. Store any treats that won’t be used immediately in the refrigerator or freezer.
