Either you can’t be bothered making your own puree or you just want to experiment (like me), you can add baby food to your dog’s biscuits ingredients. Just check the labels to make sure there are no harmful ingredients for your dog, e.g. onion/onion powder, artificial preservatives.
Here’s our Easy Dog Biscuits with Baby Food Recipe
Makes about 15 – 20 biscuits
2 cups of rolled oats
1/3 cup of desiccated coconut
1 jar of baby food (approx. 110g) of your choice
1 tbs of chia seed gel*
1 tbs of blackstrap molasses
A sprinkle of iodised salt (optional)
* To make chia seed gel, mix chia seeds with lukewarm water and stir. Let it sit for a few minutes and stir again until it thickens. Store the remaining gel in a sealed container and refrigerate.
You can also add herbs into the biscuit mixture. For our biscuit batch, we use apple puree baby food and add a sprinkle of cinnamon. You can add parsley to any vegetables, poultry and/or meat-based baby food.
Preheat oven to 175C (or 350F).
In food processor, pulse the oats. Mix the oats with all of the remaining ingredients and shape the mixture to any shapes you like.
Place them on the baking paper and bake for 20 – 25 minutes (or until cooked).
