Carrot Apple Dog Treats
2 cups chickpea flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 organic egg
1/4 cup organic applesauce
1 cup grated organic carrots
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the egg and applesauce. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir well to combine. Then add carrots to the mix. Dough should have the consistency of Play Doh.
3. Depending on dog size and desired treat size, shape between 1 tsp and 3 tbsp of dough and drop onto a sheet pan. (Dust hands with flour to prevent sticking while shaping treats!)
4. Bake time varies greatly depending on size: 13-20 minutes.
Store in an airtight container on counter after thoroughly cooled for up to 1 week. (Waiting until cooled is an important step; condensation can build and the moisture may cause treats to mold.) Store in fridge for up to 2 months; store in freezer for up to 8 months.
