Chickpea Grain-Free Dog Treats

Chickpea flour is a versatile and healthy flour that bakes up perfect dog treats.

A gluten-free favorite for bakers, chickpea flour is full of fiber and protein. You can use it in most grain-free recipes to give your pooch a boost of calcium, magnesium, folate, vitamin B6, potassium and selenium. And did you know that chickpea flour has anti-inflammatory abilities, which helps dogs that have digestive tract issues? We’ve paired it with The Honest Kitchen’s Love formula, featuring beef, sweet potatoes, potatoes, organic flaxseed and organic coconut.
