Dog Treats

I like to say Gibbs is a sympathy dog since his diet is as restrictive as mine, if not more so. He is on a grain free vegan kibble, so I like to give him “treats” when he can tolerate them. Mainly his treats are in the form of frozen blueberries or these homemade ones I baked up today.


  • 2 c garbanzo bean flour (add more as needed), plus additional for dusting
  • 1/2 c unsweetened organic applesauce, can also use one whole banana
  • 2 tbsp all natural, unsalted peanut butter
  • 1 egg

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until ball forms. Warning: dough is extremely tacky! Add more flour as necessary so you can handle it.

Use wax paper to roll dough out until 1/4″ thick. This will be an upper body workout. Sometimes I just roll the dough into balls when I don’t have the energy to roll it out, and flatten them with spoon once on baking sheet.

Cut into shapes. I have a special fire hydrant cookie cutter just for these treats. I dip my cookie cutter into water before I cut each treat because the dough will stick to everything!  Place cutout treats onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I use a metal spatula dipped in water each time I try to remove from counter top and place on baking sheet.

Bake at 300° for 30-45 minutes or until treats are hardened and starting to brown.
