This Recipe Inspired Me To Experiment With More Ingredients

It almost didn't happen. After opening the baking cupboards I realized my supply of dried fruits and dehydrated vegetables was gone. These are the ingredients I use to create my homemade dog treat recipes. I had plenty of peanut butter and flour, but all of the other ingredients I experiment with were scant. I was seconds away from taking the frilly apron off and calling it a day. However, the proverbial light bulb went off.

If I didn't create a new recipe with the ingredients I had on hand, wouldn't that be stomping on the whole point of this ongoing project?

I'm trying to inspire pet parents to make their own homemade dog treats and to let 'em know this is something that can be done on a whim. You don't have to make a trip to the store to purchase a ton of ingredients or spend the entire afternoon making a single batch of biscuits.

The recipes I'm experimenting with and creating are ones that are made with simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand.

I took a deep breath, exhaled, grabbed a few ingredients, and created the first new homemade dog biscuit recipe of 2017.

Total time from start to finish was about an hour.

Our kids gobbled up a few for snack time once cooled.

I'm going to let them dry in our biscuit room as we do with our Bodacious Biscuit Love Peanut Butter Dog Treats. This is a test of sorts because I used fresh carrots in the recipe. I'm curious. Will they fully harden like the other biscuit recipes?

I still haven't come up with a creative name for these scrumptious gems, but the tutorial and recipe is available. You can check that out here.

This recipe definitely inspired me to experiment more. Fresh veggies. Fresh fruit. Meat. Soft. Cake-like. Peanut butter free. The possibilities are endless.

Who knows what I'll come up with this year.
