Banana, Apple & Turkey (BAT) Dog Treat

We’ve taken a diner staple and given it a dog-friendly makeover!

A lunchtime favorite for many is a BLT—bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. It’s not something you’d give to your dog as a treat…besides, it’s all mine! That’s why we created the dog-friendly version of the sandwich, but in a dog treat. Presenting the BAT—banana, apple and turkey dog treat! Dogs love apples and bananas, and powered with The Honest Kitchen’s Grain Free Turkey Recipe, your pooch will order this snack from the menu whenever he’s visiting the kitchen!

Recipe Notes

Leave the skin on the apple when grating it. Just watch out for the seeds: make sure they don't get into the dough, as they can be toxic to dogs.
