Most dogs love their veggies. Fed raw, cooked or incorporated into home-baked treats, vegetables add valuable vitamins, minerals and roughage to the diet. These sweet-smelling and yummy-tasting sweet potato and pumpkin spice bones are wonderfully festive, and make perfect gifts for all the dogs on your holiday list.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Poke some holes in a large sweet potato and pumpkin squash. Place them in a microwavable dish with a little water and cook until soft, about 15 minutes, turning once. Let the potato and squash cool, remove the skin, then use a food processor, blender or potato masher to puree until smooth.
Beat the egg in the measuring cup with a fork, add honey and blend together. Pour into the bowl of pureed vegetables, add water and mix together until all ingredients are well-incorporated.
Combine flours, oat bran, ground flaxseed and spices in the other bowl. Add the vegetable mixture to the dry ingredients a little at a time and mix well until a dough forms.
Roll the dough out on a lightly-floured surface to about 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into bone shapes. Place on an ungreased baking sheet close together. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until evenly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack.
