Festive Homemade Treats for your Dog
Now-a-days people treat their dogs like royalty. Some spend money on dog purses, clothes, and even dog strollers; really these do exist. Instead of spending money on such extravagances, why not give your dog the best gift? Provide your dog with healthy and delicious treats. According to The Healing Powers of Honey by Cal Orey, “Not only can honey be used topically on animals, but honey is also used in some commercial pet treats and do-it yourself recipes.” Try making these Pumpkin Spice and Manuka Honey Treat Balls for a tasty October treat for your furry best friend.
Pumpkin Spice and Manuka Honey Dog Treats
-2/3 cup of whole wheat flour
-1/3 cup of white flour
-1/2 cup bran
-1/2 cup brewer’s yeast
-1/4 cup of wheat germ
-1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin spice
-3 tablespoons of Wedderspoon Manuka Honey
-2 tablespoons of corn oil
-1/3 cup of milk
Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, beat honey, corn oil, egg, and milk. Gradually add mixture to dry ingredients to form a dough. Form into 1 inch balls and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 15 minutes. Makes 18 balls.
Note: For safety’s sake, check with your veterinarian before giving treats to your dog
