Spinach flaxseed dog treats, are dog approved!

These treats are very easy to make, for your special fur-babies. Just six basic ingredients are used in this recipe. You’ll need: spinach, ground flaxseeds, bacon grease, an egg, water and flour. You can see the pretty flecks of green, from the spinach. They look very fancy!  My dogs really loved these treats. It’s a nice little healthy boost, in treat form.  No additives or preservatives here. All natural ingredients, that you can feel good about.

Spinach Flaxseed Dog Treats

  • 1/2 cup chopped spinach
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseeds
  • 2 Tablespoons bacon grease – room temperature  
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

 

Step One: Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees. Whisk together the bacon grease, egg and water.  Add in the chopped spinach, ground flaxseeds and flour. Mix until a dough forms, use your hands.  This dough will be a little tough, just keep mixing with your hands.  Flour counter and roll out dough, to a 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes and place on baking sheet. (I used the rim of a plastic shot glass, to cut out circle shapes.) Bake  in preheated oven for 35 minutes.  Allow to fully cool, before giving to your dog.
