Nothing beats the eager eyes and happy tail-wag of a dog about to get a treat. Here is a recipe we’ve adapted from The Simple Little Vegan Dog Book for the easiest dog treats on the planet.
- 3 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
- 1/3 Cup Nutritional Yeast
- 1 Cup Low-Sodium Vegetable Broth
Method: Mix the flour and nutritional yeast together. Then add the vegetable broth and knead together for several minutes until a dough ball forms. Roll out the dough until it is about 1/4 inch thick and use cookie cutters to cut into desired treat shapes. Arrange on a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn off heat, but leave the cookies in the oven as it cools for 1 or 2 hours. This will allow the cookies to dry out and harden like traditional dog biscuits.
Store cookies in a cookie jar or another cool, dry place. Do not seal in an airtight plastic bag or container, or they may get soft.
Get Crafty: You can use water instead of vegetable broth, but in that case you’ll want to add something else to boost the flavor, like peanut butter or pumpkin puree. Experiment and have fun!
