Carrot Cookie for Dogs

by Susan Dorling

Treat your dog like royalty -- treat him to these delicious and nutritious carrot cookies.

A superb source of beta carotene, vitamins A and C, potassium and fiber, carrots take center stage in these delightful, easy-to-bake dog cookies. The supporting cast includes a bevy of nutritious ingredients like oats, squash and sunflower seeds. Easy as pie to make, these crunchy treats are sure to wow 'em.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Peel, dice and finely grind the carrots and zucchini in a food processor or blender. Peel, cube and cook the butternut squash until soft, then mash with the potato masher or ricer until smooth.

Step 2

Combine all the ingredients together in a food processor or mixing bowl, and mix until a dough forms. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy clean-up. Spoon tablespoons of the mixture for each cookie close together on the baking sheet.

Step 3

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove the cookies from the oven. For extra-crispy treats, turn off the oven and leave the cookies inside for a couple of hours. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
