This year I was lucky enough to share my homemade treats with NOAH (National Office of Animal Health with their ‘I heart my pet’ campaign which encourages owners to seek expert advice on helping to keep their pets healthy.
As a pet-lover myself, I know that caring for pets all year round is vitally important for their health and well-being.
So I wanted to make an easy and healthy snack perfect for your favorite pup. Making healthy treats for pets is an excellent way of showing them you care and can also be great fun for the whole family and a wonderful way to teach children how to feed their dog in a healthy manner.
My ‘I heart my pet’ treat gift will be perfect for all pet owners looking for an original and easy to make present, and particularly for the many owners who like to celebrate special occasions with their pets.
It’s a perfect little gift to give a new puppy or to celebrate your dog’s birthday!
Salmon Pomegranate Molasses Dog Treats
My Salmon Pomegranate Molasses recipe delivers an incredibly healthy and exceptionally tasty way to treat your dog.This dog treat recipe is extremely easy to make, filled with healthy ingredients, and its vitamin packed. However it is not a substitute for your dog’s regular meals. My treat recipe is designed to be fed during training or as a special “good dog” reward during the day. Your dog will love its fishy smell and flavor!
Pomegranate: High in antioxidants and vitamin C, pomegranate can be fed as a juice, and can help to keep your dog healthy and active into old age.Salmon: A good source of omega 3 fatty acids, which are responsible for keeping your dog’s coat healthy and shiny, as well as supporting your dog’s immune system.
- 500 ml whole wheat flour
- 480 grams of Salmon (cooked fresh or canned)
- 2 Egg
- 2 Tablespoons of Pomegranate Molasses
- Splash of Water
Directions1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grab your baking sheet, a nonstick baking mat or parchment paper; set aside. 2.In a bowl put salmon and its juices into a large mixing bowl and flake.
5.Add Flour You don’t have to be precise with the flour and may add more or less than recommended. You will want a consistency similar to the next photo. You may even need a splash of water.
7.Roll the dough out flat until it is about 1/4 inch thick. If you like moister dog biscuits, you can make it thicker. If you like it crunchier, you can make it thinner. Don’t worry about making it perfect as this will later be broken into small treats for your dog. Just flatten it out into any old shape.
10.Place the cookie sheet in the center of the oven. Let it cook for 25 – 35 minutes, depending on whether you prefer moister or crunchier treats.11.Remove from the oven. Use a spatula to lift your Salmon treats off of the cookie sheet before cooling, however you can let it cool on the cookie sheet if you like. 12.Once cooled, divide the Salmon pomegranate dog biscuits into desired portions suitable for your dog. I divide Maggie’s treats in small little training bites.
*Remember: These healthy and natural little treats contains fish, it does need to be refrigerated or frozen and consumed within three to four days. It can be kept frozen for three months before consumption.
In the summer I like to keep them in the freezer and give a little treat to Maggie. She loves the coolness and it gives the treats a nice chewy texture.
