Gluten-Free Beef and Cheese Dog Treat Recipe

Idea for dogs who can’t tolerate gluten, these treats are made with rice flour and gluten-free oats—both of which are readily available in your local grocery store.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten-free oats
  • 2 cups rice flour
  • 1/3 cup The Honest Kitchen Love Beef Recipe dry dehydrated food
  • 1 cup peas and carrots frozen or fresh
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup beef broth

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor or blender, puree the peas and carrots until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine rice flour, rolled oats, Love beef recipe, cheddar cheese and egg. Mix well.
  4. Add in pureed peas and carrots and mix until combined.
  5. As you’re stirring, add in beef broth. The dough will be moist.
  6. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface or onto parchment paper. Roll out dough to ¼ to ½ inch thickness. Because the dough is stiff, it may stick to your rolling pin. Spray or rub the rolling pin with olive oil, and you’ll be able to roll the dough out smoothly. Cut with cookie cutter and place on cookie sheets. Bake 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool on racks. Store in an air tight container, and refrigerate or freeze.
