Dehydrated Dog Cookie Recipe
4 Chicken breasts
2 Apple sauce cups unsweetened (4 oz ea)
1 Bag of frozen green beans cooked (12 oz)
3 Cups oatmeal uncooked (original formula)
2 Tablespoons molasses
1 Cup chicken broth
1 cup of chicken broth:
1 bag of green beans cooked:
2 tablespoons molasses:
2 containers of applesauce:
Mix till it looks like this:
And has this consistency:
Add more chicken broth if too thick or add more oatmeal if it's too runny.
With a large serving spoon, add to a quart size ziploc bag:
Fill entire bag, close bag and notice the left lower corner,
cut just a small corner off to make a pasty bag:
Get out your Nesco Dehydrator:
Twist the bag and squeeze the cookie dough out in a circular motion
on to the Nesco trays. Aim for the size of a quarter or larger, mine tend to be the size of a 1/2 dollar:
Continue until you have filled all the trays and it looks like the photo below.
Let the cookies dehydrate for about 7-8 hours at the 160 degree setting. Break one of the cookies in half to make sure they are crisp. When broken in half they should make a snapping sound indicating that they are very crispy. They should look like this:
They will shrink a bit as you can see in above photo compared to the photo above it.
All the cookies:
Place a small amount of dry, uncooked rice into a gallon size ziploc bag. The rice ensures that the cookies stay crisp.
Fill with cookies (makes about 110), close bag and refrigerate after giving out samples to your dogs:

Treats are good for approximately three weeks, but they wont last that long! I make them about every week to ten days for my four toy breed dogs. You may cut the recipe in half if you have less dogs or just don't want to make a large batch. You may also substitute turkey and sweet potatoes for the chicken and green beans. Your wuffie will love these crispy, healthy treats and beg for more! Use organic ingredients for an even healthier treat. I created another version of this recipe for those that don't have a dehydrator, click here.
Purchasing info: I purchased my Nesco dehydrator at Amazon, you can order one here. I have used it for over two years, so I lasts! The Kitchen Aid food processor is from QVC, the model I use is here. It's the I recommend both of these products.
