10 GEWELDIG HONDENSNACKS DIE JE HOND HEERLIJK ZAL VINDEN

 

Ik vind het heerlijk om nieuwe recepten uit te proberen en nieuwe smaken te proeven. Gedurende de week maak ik vaak gerechten waarvan ik weet dat iedereen ze lust en ook daadwerkelijk eet (--> de kinderen).

 

In het weekend neem ik meer tijd voor het koken en geniet ik er meer van. De kinderen vinden het ook steeds leuker om te koken. Ze kennen de weg in de keuken en ik moet je zeggen dat onze oudste dochter inmiddels de aangewezen persoon is om een lekker gebakken eitje te maken.

 

Zo af en toe bakken we koekjes en andere lekkernijen, niet voor onszelf maar voor de honden. Het is een leuke activiteit om samen met de kinderen op te pakken of gewoon een fijn moment voor jezelf (inclusief een lekker muziekje en een drankje).

 

Er zijn veel recepten voor hondenkoeken te vinden op het internet en we hebben er veel uitgeprobeerd. Dus als je het een leuk idee vindt om zelf eens lekkere hondenkoekjes en hondenhapjes te maken, lees dan even door en probeer onze 10 favoriete recepten eens uit.

7 Redenen om je eigen hondenkoekjes te bakken

Steeds meer dierenspeciaalzaken verkopen producten gemaakt van natuurlijke ingredienten of met mindere suiker en toevoegingen. Dat is een geweldige ontwikkeling. De voordelen van het thuis bakken van hondensnacks is dat je exact weet waar het van gemaakt is. Je kiest zelf de ingredienten, je weet zeker dat het een goed en verantwoord products is.

7 redenen om je eigen hondensnoepjes te bakken

  1. Het is super gezond (veel vitaminen in rauwe groenten en fruit)
  2. Het smaakt geweldig 
  3. Het is een leuke activiteit voor jezelf of met vrienden & familie
  4. Je kunt de hondensnoepjes cadeau geven aan iemand, verpak het mooi en het is een heel origineel cadeau
  5. Je hond zal nog meer van je houden 
  6. Als je kleine porties maakt kun je de hondensnoepjes of hondenkoekjes ook gebruiken als beloning tijdens de hondencursus of hondentraining
  7. Je kunt de naam van je hond in het hondenkoekje stempelen en het nog persoonlijker maken

De voordelen van het zelf bakken van hondensnoepjes of hondenkoekjes is dat het er niet perfect uit hoeft te zien. Je kunt het koekje vormgeven zoals je zelf wilt. Een ander voordeel: het is (bijna) keuken dummy proof. Ik beloof je, zelfs mijn meest grote bak mislukking werd met niets minderen dan een groots applaus ontvangen door mijn honden en was binnen een aantal seconden tot op de laatste kruimel verorberd.

  2. Peanut butter dog treats
  3. Peanut butter, oats & broth dog cookies
  4. Frozen apple yoghurt dog treats
  5. Vegan & gluten free dog treats
  6. Apple carrot dog treats

1. Natural & healthy vegetable & fruit dog treats

We regularly make a smoothie or a juice. Sometimes a healthy green one and sometimes a fruity one. No matter what you make you are always left with leftovers.

When we use our juicer (for clear vegetable or fruit juice without fibres) the machine leaves behind a pretty large pile of pulp. The first few times we threw away the pulp, but that is really a big waste. You can either use the pulp as fertilizer for your garden or use it to make delicious dog treats.

In the picture you see me holding a small ball in my hand. It might look like a small meatball but it's really not. It's a small carrot ball. I took out the pulp from the juicer and made small balls from it, just the way you would make a meatball. This particular carrot ball also has some apple in it because I made a carrot-apple-beet-lime-celery juice.

 

healthy carrot ball dog snack

When you are juicing it is wise to first juice one fruit or vegetable and then the other ones. This way you can for instance take out the carrot pulp before it is mixes with the lime. I'm pretty sure the dogs will appreciate it ;)

Also be aware some vegetables or fruits are better not served to dogs, so be careful you don't mix everything together.

You can use:

  • apple
  • carrot
  • broccoli
  • bananas (in moderation)
  • blueberries
  • brussels sprouts (not sure what smell will come out later)
  • cantaloupe
  • celery
  • cranberries
  • cucumbers
  • green beans (not sure how to use this for a smoothie or juice though)
  • mango
  • oranges
  • peaches
  • pears
  • peas (cooked)
  • pineapple
  • raspberries
  • strawberries
  • spinich (small amount)

 

2. Peanut butter dog treats

I think pretty much all dogs love peanut butter. If your dog loves peanut butter than you should definitely try this recipe. Only three ingredients plus water. Take a large bowl and mix all the ingredients intil you see all the ingredients have mixed. Then add the water for the dough to become a little more smooth to roll out. If you have any baking molds you can use them to make nice cookies. If you don't just form round flat cookies by hand.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (with or without chuncks)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup water (add more if needed)

 

Instructions:

  • Make sure your preheat your oven to 350° F/190° C
  • Mix the all the ingredients (without the water) in a large bowl until it's all combined
  • Carefully add a little bit of water (not the whole cup) and add if necessary until the mixture becomes flexible enough to roll out as dough
  • Now roll out your dough & cut out your favorite shapes with some cookie cutters
  • Put your cookies onto your baking sheet & bake for about 15 minutes. Every oven is different so take the dog cookies out when the dog cookies have the colour you want them to be (light honey brown).

 

Depending on how large your cookie cutter is you should be able to get a nice amount of dog cookies out of this batch. You can keep the cookies in a cookie jar for about a week or put half of the batch in the freezer.

 

3. Peanut butter, oats & broth dog cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed grinded/broken
  • 1/2 to 1 cups beef broth
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter

 

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350° F/190° C
  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour, oats and flaxseed. Mix in 1/2 cup beef broth and peanut butter. Mix well, adding additional beef broth if necessary to bring the mixture together to a thick dough. Form into a ball and turn out on a lightly floured surface.
  • Roll to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut out to desired shape. 
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown, flipping halfway. 
  • Cool completely, then keep in an airtight container for about one week.
 

4. Frozen apple yoghurt dog Treats

For this delicious cold treat you need an ice cube tray and a blender. If you don't have a blender a potato masher could do the trick if the apples are not too hard. 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples
  • 1 cup of non fat yoghurt (greek)
  • a bit of water

 

Instructions:

  • Slice the apples into small pieces and remove the seeds and core
  • Mix the ingredients with a bit of water untill you get a liquid consistancy (when using a masher there will be chunks but that's fine)
  • Fill up the ice cube tray untill it's full and place it in the freezer.

After a few hours these treats will be ready and I'm sure your dog will love these fresh and natural treats.

 

5. Vegan & gluten free dog treats

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Oat or Rice Flour
  • 2 ripe Bananas, mash it up
  • 1/4 cup Peanut Butter (smooth & unsweetened)

If your dog has a grain allergie this is a great treat for him/her. A simple three ingredient treat that is easy to make. 

 

Instructions:

  • Peel your and mash the bananas, mix it with the peanut butter untill its smooth
  • Add your flour, half a cup at a time, and mix it up really well
  • Make a big dough ball with your hands
  • Chilling the dough in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes helps firm the dough (its optional)
  • Preheat your oven to 325 F / 190 C
  • Roll out the dough to a 0.5 inch / 1 cm thickness
  • Use cookie cutter or your hand to cut and shape your cookie
  • Place the cookies on a baking sheet 
  • Poke a few holes in each cookie using a fork
  • Place the cookies in the oven and bake for about for 30-35 minutes (untill golden brown)
  • Take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool down

You can keep the cookies in cookie jar or the freezer.

 

6. Apple carrot dog treats

Laika loves carrots and apples, so these homemade dog treats are one of her favorites. As soon as I grab a few carrots she starts licking her lips. For this recipe you’ll need a cup of whole wheat flour, one cup of grated carrots, one egg, and a half cup of apple sauce.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour, brown rice flour, or gluten free flour
  • 1 cup of grated carrots
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup grated apples

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven 350°F / 190°C
  2. Mix ingredients together until dough forms
  3. Roll dough into small balls and place on an oven sheet lined with parchment paper. Press dough down slightly so the biscuits are about about 1/4 inch thick
  4. Bake until golden brown and let cool on a wire rack

These cookies will still be 'wet' due to the apple, therefore it's best to eat them within a couple of days or put them in the freezer.

 

7. Pumpkin carrot dog treats

  • 3/4 cup soft or graded pumpkin (fresh or from a can)
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

8. Salmon & sweet potato dog treats

Ingredients:

  • 1 can salmon
  • 1 medium sweet potato, baked in the skin
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • coconut oil, as needed to grease the pan or parchment

 

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350F/190C
  • Beat the eggs until fluffy in a bowl
  • Fold in the coconut flour and salmon
  • Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes while the coconut flour absorbs the mixture
  • Remove the sweet potato from it's skin and mash it until it is smooth
  • Fold mashed sweet potato into the mixture
  • Grease a baking mold with coconut oil
  • Press the mix into your mold
  • bake for about 60-70 minutes until the mixture is firm, the edges are golden brown and a tooth pick comes out clean
  • Allow to cool and slice into squares

 

These treats will remain a bit moist and therefore have to be given within a couple of days. You can also keep them in the freezer and take out what you need.

10. Frozen Banana dog treats

The easiest and maybe even the most delicious treats to make are these frozen bananas.

All you need is two bananas and half a cup of peanut butter.

 

Instructions:

  • slice up the bananas into about 2cm parts
  • warm up the peanut butter in a pan, add some water if it stays too thick
  • dip each piece of banana in the warm peanut butter
  • place the banana on a tray on a piece of backing paper
  • place the tray in the freezer
