Spring is a wonderful season full of new experiences and new adventures — for you and for your best pal.
This year, make spring an extra-special time for your four-legged friend by introducing them to new treats. We highly recommend this Applesauce and Oatmeal DIY dog treat recipe, which is easy, healthy, and delicious. Plus, you can shape these treats into a variety of spring-themed designs to really help you get in the spirit of the season.
- 2 cups gluten-free flour (or flour of your choice)
- 1 cup oats
- 3/4 cup The Honest Kitchen’s Grain Free Beef Recipe dry food
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (a pet-safe brand)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Cover baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients together. The dough should be moist, but firm.
- Knead dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough to about 1/2 inch thickness and cut with cookie cutters. Place cookies on baking sheet.
- Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
- Remove from oven and let cool on racks for an hour.

These treats are perfect to bring on an outdoor adventure, to teach new tricks with, or even just to brighten up a rainy day.
