Banana Carrot Dog Treats

by Homemade Dog Treats on August 7, 2014

These Banana Carrot dog treats contain loads of great ingredients that promote health in your dog and since you are putting in the ingredients you know exactly what is in them and what is not. Oatmeal is a great source of soluble fiber, bananas for potassium, carrots for the beta carotene and antioxidant properties, coconut oil for healthy coat and skin , and parsley to promote fresh breath and to aid in digestion. To make these gluten free you can use oat powder in place of whole wheat flour. The recipe allows you to bake them hard -which is great for dental health or soft (which my pups prefer).
