raw vegan apple beet almond butter dog treats food processor dehydrator or oven
These raw vegan apple beet almond butter dog treats are pretty in purple. Not only are these pretty to look at, your puppies will love them too! They are made of only 5 clean ingredients, apples, beets, almond butter (check out how to easily make it homemade here), cinnamon, and coconut flour. All you need to do is blend it all up in the food processor and dry in either a dehydrator or oven and that’s it! Easy, super clean ingredients, and a happy puppy. My puppy Orion will vouch for these.

To make these cute little dog treats, you will need apples, a beet, almond butter, cinnamon and coconut flour or any grain-free flour of your choice. I have home made coconut flour left over from making coconut milk, so I used it in this recipe, but you can use store bought coconut flour, almond flour, etc. You can easily make your own nut or seed flour by drying the leftover pulp from making nut and seed milks in the dehydrator, then blend in a blender until it becomes a fine flour. Sift the flour if you are going to use it in pastry recipes, but for this, you can skip the sifting step.

Roughly chop the apples and beet and add it into the food processor. Blend until everything becomes a fine mince. Scrape the sides of the food processor in between blending. Add the almond butter and cinnamon and blend.

Once it becomes a thick paste, add in the coconut flour or the flour or your choice. Blend until it forms a dough about the firmness of your earlobe. The amount of flour you need will vary depending on the flour you are using.

Lay down the silicone sheet for the dehydrator and place the dough on top of it. Put another silicone sheet on top of the dough and roll out the dough into 1/4″ thickness. You can use parchment paper instead of the silicone sheets if you like.

After a few hours of drying, flip the treats upside down for even drying. Once they are completely dry, store them in an air-tight container. These will last for a month but I’m sure it’ll be long gone by then.
