Homemade Tropical Gluten-Free Dog Treats


This warmer weather has put me in such a tropical mood. Along with busting out my colorful summer dresses, I’ve filled my kitchen with tons of fruit, ice pops, and other summer treats. Yummmmyyyyyy. I figured, since I’m all ready for summer, my dogs must be too. That’s why when I started running out of my last batch of biscuits, I decided to play around with new ingredients. The result — these Tropical Gluten-Free dog treats! 

There are only five ingredients in these treats, none of which involve gluten products. So if your dog has a gluten sensitivity, these are the perfect treats to make.


Are Oats Gluten-Free?

While oats are considered gluten-free they are sometimes grown in fields along with gluten products so there could be cross contamination. If you want your dog eating completely gluten-free then look for oats that have the “gluten-free” label.

This recipe yields about 130 bites. That may sound like a lot, but judging by how much my pups love them, they won’t last long!

Ingredients
  1. - 2 cups oat flour
  2. - ¼ cup organic coconut flour
  3. - 1 banana
  4. - 1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple in its own juice
  5. - 2 Tbs coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
  2. Combine banana, pineapple with the juice, and coconut oil.
  3. Puree it in a blender or food processor until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Put the mixture into a large bowl and add coconut flour.
  5. Mix well.
  6. Add oat flour one cup at a time and stir until all the ingredients are combined.
  7. Knead into a dough ball. It's a moist dough and will be sticky.
  8. Let the dough ball stand for about 15 minutes
  9. While the dough ball is standing ~ Preheat oven to 350º
  10. Take small bits of dough and roll into about 1/2" circles and then flatten.
  11. Place on baking sheet in rows leaving a little room between them.
  12. Place in 350º oven and bake for 28 minutes.
  13. Turn oven off and let them cool in the oven. This will continue to dry the bites so they become hard. If you want a softer consistency, remove bites and let cool on the stovetop.
  14. Store in airtight container for a week in refrigerator or up to 3 months in freezer.
Notes
  1. *This dough will be sticky when rolling, so you may need to rinse your hands a couple of times while preparing your bites.
  2. *As with all our recipes, they're natural and have no preservatives so store them appropriately.
  3. *These are snacks and should be fed in moderation as all snacks should.
