Apples are also loaded with fibre, vitamins A and C, omega-3 and -6, antioxidants, flavonoids and polyphenols. Parsley and mint ingredients freshen your pup’s breath instantly. You can cut out bones, hearts, or any other shape you desire.
Recipe source: Damn Delicious
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 large eggs
3 cups whole wheat flour, or more, as needed
1 apple, grated
1/2 cup mint leaves, chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat pumpkin puree and eggs on medium-high until well combined, about 1-2 minutes. Gradually add 2 1/2 cups flour at low speed, beating just until incorporated. Add an additional 1/4 cup flour at a time just until the dough is no longer sticky. Add apple, mint and parsley, beating just until incorporated.
Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out desired shapes and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
Place into oven and bake until the edges are golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.*
Let cool completely.
