Treat your four-legged friend to these homemade dog biscuits with quarks and carrots. A really, really simple recipe made from delicious and natural ingredients, and by the way, grain-free.
As always, only a few ingredients are used in this recipe:
We only use a relatively small amount of curd. It doesn’t really matter whether you use low-fat quark or something more substantial quark.
You can use carrots in pretty much any shape in this recipe.
So it doesn’t really matter whether you use carrots that have already been cooked from the day before, raw carrot pieces, or a baby jar with carrots.
You should grate raw carrots before further processing.
Carrot pieces that are too coarse in the dough are not bad, but they are sometimes a bit annoying when cutting out and do not dry out so well when baking.
This time we’re using potato starch again as a grain-free type of flour.
The term actually means normal potato starch, which you can buy in almost every supermarket as a natural binding agent.
Of course, you can also simply use a different type of flour and simply adjust the optimal amount by eye.
Instructions for dog biscuits with carrots and quark
Here are the rough steps to the finished baking result:
- Pure carrots, cottage cheese, egg, and oil.
- Knead in the potato flour until a malleable dough is formed.
- Flatten the dough on a floured work surface.
- Cut out cookies with your choice of cutters.
- Bake the dog biscuits at 160 °C for about 15 minutes.
Save dog biscuits with cottage cheese and carrots
Of course, homemade cookies don’t keep as long as store-bought ones. That, of course, is the compromise you have to make when you don’t use preservatives.
So it is better to bake more often and not in too large quantities.
Homemade carrot biscuits with quark will keep the longest if they only have the lowest possible moisture content. After the actual baking time, dry the biscuits in the oven at low heat for a while.
If your four-legged friend prefers his biscuits not quite so crispy, then it is best to store the DIY dog treats in the fridge.
Most biscuits will keep for at least a few days in the fridge . And otherwise only portioning and freezing helps, this works with most dog biscuits without any problems.
Be careful not to transfer your cookies to airtight containers while they are still warm. Condensation forms quickly and the shelf life is reduced.
It is better to keep dry-baked biscuits in the fresh air, in biscuit tins or cloth bags.
