Looking for a healthy snack for your dog that isn’t a biscuit? Try these great fruit and veggie strips. Some people like them because they are vegetarian. Your dog will like them because they are delicious and easy to digest.
If you are making your own home made dog food, make sure you check with your vet during your annual exam about your dogs individual nutritional needs. Some medical conditions require specific diets. We also do not recommend putting your dog on a vegetarian diet. Though fruits and vegetables are good for your dog, they also need meat.
Fruit and Veggie Strip Recipe for Dogs
Sweet Potato (cubed)– 1
1 medium Banana
Carrots (Minced) – 1 cup
Unsweetened Apple Sauce – ½ cup
Wheat Flour – 2 cups
Rolled Oats – 1 cup
Water – 1/3 cup
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Bring a pot of water to boil. Add the potatoes and boil for 8-10 minutes until they are soft. You will need to do the same thing with the carrots, so they are soft.
Put the sweet potatoes and bananas into a bowl and smash them together. Add the carrots, flour and oats and mix. Then add the apple sauce and water slowly and mix thoroughly. Make the mixture into a dough.
Cover a flat surface with flour, and roll the dough to about 1/8 th inch thick. Using a regular knife, cut the dough into strips and lay them on a baking sheet. Bake for up to 30 minutes, basically until they are thoroughly cooked through and a bit rubbery.
Let them cool before serving. You can store these in your fridge for up to 2 weeks.
