Brave Coconut Pumpkin Dog Treats

If your dog has a gluten sensitivity, coconut flour is an ideal alternative to whole wheat flour.

Made from ground and dried coconut meat, coconut flour is high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats, and it’s low in sugar, digestible carbohydrates and calories. Plus, it’s perfect for our Brave Coconut Dog Treat recipe. The Honest Kitchen’s Limited Ingredient Fish Recipe (Brave) is designed for dogs with sensitivities to multiple ingredients. Brave features Marine Stewardship Council Certified Pollock, organic coconut, chickpeas, celery, pumpkin and spinach—which makes Brave a wonderful addition to this irresistible homemade treat.
