Zucchini Chews Dog Treats

Zucchini? Yes you read that right, Zucchini Chews Dog Treats! I use any excuse I can think of to get healthier ingredients in my pups treats. While meat of course is their favorite they don’t turn their nose up at veggies that I have doctored up with a little flavoring. If your pup is a snacker and chewer these treats are sure to set tails wagging. Just a few simple ingredients and you can turn out a whole container of healthy treats that you can feel great about giving your dogs.

Did you know that Zucchini has a lot of health benefits for your dog? It provides calcium, potassium, B vitamins, beta-carotene, folate and fiber. Oh, and it’s pretty tasty too!

Easy Zucchini Chews Dog Treats

Zucchini Chews Dog Treats Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°.
  2. Slice zucchinis to ⅛” thickness with vegetable slicer or by hand.
  3. Toss zucchini in olive oil.
  4. Spread chews out on baking sheet (line with parchment paper for easy clean up) leave at least ½” space between each one to allow air to circulate.
  5. Sprinkle lightly with dry mustard and bouillon.
  6. Bake for 4-6 hours until desired doneness is reached- you can leave them slightly chewy or cook until crisp whatever your pet prefers.
  7. Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks. I like to store my homemade dog treats in the fridge since they contain no preservatives I feel better about their safety.
  8. If you have a dehydrator you can also make them in there, follow manufacturers cooking directions.

What a simple healthy dog treat, we hope your dog loves them too!
