Grain-Free Force Dog Treats

A grain-free treat that’s packed with force!

Did you know that buckwheat isn’t wheat…it’s a seed! And when used as flour in a treat, it’s highly nutritious and gluten-free. Buckwheat flour boasts a rich, nutty flavor, and it helps with your dog’s digestion, liver function, and circulation. Combined with The Honest Kitchen’s grain-free Force Chicken formula, coconut oil, and turmeric, you’ve got a homemade dog treat that does a body good!

Grain-Free Force Dog Treat

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups buckwheat flour
  • 1/3 cup honest kitchen Force Chicken dehydrated food
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup raspberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, lightly whip eggs using a fork or whisk. Set aside.
  3. In a blender, add raspberries and coconut oil. Blend for 30-50 seconds.
  4. In a large bowl, stir together buckwheat flour, Force Chicken dehydrated food, and ground turmeric. Blend well.
  5. Add in the blended raspberries and coconut oil, and stir into the dry ingredients.
  6. Add egg to the mixture and stir.

  9. Place cookies on cookie sheet and place in oven for 15 minutes.

Recipe Notes

I find that grain—and gluten-free treats take less time to bake, so I lower the temperature and check on the baking treats every few minutes to ensure they don’t burn.
