Banana Quinoa Dog Treats

Gluten-free and high in protein, quinoa flour is one of the only plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids.

That’s why we used it in this Banana Quinoa Dog Treat recipe. To give it an extra healthy punch, we’ve also added our Instant Beef Bone Broth to the mix. It’s a balancing, aromatic fusion of cooling, comforting ingredients inspired by ayurvedic principle. Bon appetit, pups!
