    SO cute! A friend of mine used to make her dog treats with whatever leftover veggies she had mixed with oats, etc. and the dog loved them. Wish I had the recipe.

    Carrot & Oat Dog Biscuits

    Yield: at least 75 dog biscuits

    Prep Time: 10 minutes

    Cook Time: 20 minutes

    Total Time: 30 minutes

    1/2 cup carrot juice
    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    2 large eggs
    3 tablespoons natural creamy peanut butter
    2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup coarsely ground cornmeal
    1/2 cup rolled oats

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, with a rack in the center of the oven.

    Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper and set aside.

    Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine and form a thick dough.

    Flour a wooden cutting board or similar surface well, and turn the dough out onto the board.

    Sprinkle flour on top of the dough and onto a rolling pin, and roll the dough to approximately 1/4″-1/2″ thickness. Be sure to use plenty of flour, as this dough is very sticky!

    When the dough is rolled out, dip a bone-shaped cookie cutter (or any other shape you like) into flour and cut out the biscuits.

    Transfer the cut out biscuits to the prepared sheet pan, leaving about 1/4″ of an inch between each treat. These don’t spread out, so you can fit upwards of 40 onto a baking sheet at a time.

    Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes, or until light golden brown.

    Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the biscuits to cool completely.

    Transfer the biscuits to an airtight container, where they will keep at room temperature for up to two weeks.

    You can freeze any leftover dough, too! Just wrap it well with plastic wrap and place in a freezer-safe zip-top plastic bag. The dough will keep in the freezer for up to a year.

    When you’re ready to use the frozen dough, simply transfer the still-wrapped dough from the freezer to the fridge and allow it to thaw overnight before using.
