I love my dogs, they are like my kids. Just like buying and feeding my kid healthy foods I like to give my dogs healthy foods. I buy high quality dry dog food and try to buy the best, natural treats I can. This can all get very expensive and being one who tried to be money smart I decided I would just come up with my own healthy dog treat recipe. So, a little magic in my kitchen and this is what I came up with. It makes me feel good to know what is in my dogs food as well as my food.
2 Cans of soft dog food.
1 1/2 Cup of carrots chopped up small
2 Medium Sweet Potatoes Shredded
1 Cup Oatmeal
Any of these canned dog food would work. Here are our top picks.

Mix all ingredient in a large bowl. You can add a little more or less of each ingredient to get the consistency of a cookie dough.
Drop by tablespoons onto greased cookie sheets. (don’t mind the old cookie sheets I have.. yikes)
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 – 40 minutes or until golden on bottom and edges.
Transfer from baking sheet to wire rack to cool. Store in air tight container in fridge for up to 10 days.
You can see the chunks of carrots and the oatmeal and sweet potato give it nice texture.
These must look good cuz my husband almost ate one. LOL!
See my pretty boy Marshall (RIP) begging for one. He loves his treats.
