Blueberries for dogs
Sugar has dog food with blueberries in it, so I wanted to try a dog biscuit recipe with these little berries and see how she liked them. Blueberry treats can go either way with her, so I had my fingers crossed.
Then, because I needed more opinions, I gave them to neighbors with dogs. So far, every single pooch has been a fan. Therefore, I feel confident that this recipe is a winner.
These vegan dog treats are also perfect for those pups with dietary issues. I’ve had a few readers message me about egg substitutions for their pups. This treat is egg-free. This also makes a difference for dog owners who are vegan, because they don’t have eggs in the house, but still want to spoil their pups.
Blueberry treats for dogs
If you are looking for low fat dog treats, you’ve come to the right place. This recipe has a bit of coconut oil in it, but not enough to really move the needle on the fat content.
These banana dog treats with blueberries have a little extra sweetness in them from the banana. Many of the biscuits that I make for my pup have pumpkin in them, like these healthy soft dog treats. They’re perfect for older dogs or those with dental issues.
The blueberries give these treats added moisture, so if you want a really crunchy treat, increase the baking time by another 5 – 10 minutes. For a softer treat, reduce the time by the same amount.
Yes! Oatmeal in small quantities is great for dogs with sensitive stomachs. It is also part of a hypoallergenic diet for dogs with food sensitivities.
Yes. Blueberries are a great summertime treat for your dog. They are low fat and low in calories. Be careful though, don’t overdo it. Just like people, too much of a good thing can give them a tummy ache.
Yes you can. You can try to break up the oats in a blender and mix the ingredients by hand in a large mixing bowl.
Absolutely. You can put them in frozen or if you prefer to thaw, make sure they are drained well. The extra liquid will make the dough gummy and mushy.
These blueberry dog treats are best stored in the refrigerator, or freezer, if you want to keep them for a bit longer.
They will last about 7 – 10 days in the fridge. Freeze them for up to 3 months to extend the life.
Here is a list of suggested equipment for making your blueberry dog treats.
- Food processor – Used to grind the oats and mix the dough together.
- Measuring cups – If you don’t have a set, you’ll need these.
- Rubber spatula – I prefer these commercial grade spatulas because they are not as flimsy as the ones for regular home use.
- Rolling dowel – Basically, the perfect rolling pin.
- Bone shaped cutters – This is the exact set I have. I’ve had them for years and they hold up really well to a lot of use. I used the 2″ cutter for these treats.
Procedure for blueberry dog treats
The first step is grinding the oats for the treats. You can buy oat flour, but this is less expensive. It takes about 2 minutes in the food processor and you get to control how coarse or fine you want the oats.
After the oats are broken down, add the flour and flax seed to the food processor. Pulse to combine.
Add wet ingredients and pulse a few times to incorporate before adding the blueberries. Then flour the counter, turn out the dough and lightly dust the top of the dough with flour using a small strainer or sieve.
Roll out to desired thickness, cut out treats and bake. I recommend baking on parchment paper, especially with these treats. If you have bigger pieces of blueberries, they can stick to the pan.
