To the recipe
We bake dog biscuits with yogurt and carrots. So the ingredients are no secret:
I used regular unsweetened plain yogurt.
Somewhat higher-fat varieties such as cream yogurt/cream yogurt should also work if you want to use them.
We grate our raw carrot(s) very finely before baking. Alternatively, you can also use cooked carrots or a baby jar with pure carrots.
Instructions for carrot treats with yogurt
Here is a rough overview of the steps. Baking dog snacks is really quick:
- Mix finely grated carrots with yogurt, egg, and oil. Alternatively, you can simply puree everything together quickly.
- Then knead enough flour into the yogurt mixture until you get a soft and smooth dough.
- Unroll the sheet of dough and take out the cutters. Transfer the dog biscuits to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Bake the cookies at 350°F (175°C) for about 15-20 minutes.
Save the carrot yogurt dog biscuits
We’re baking a recipe here with rather moist ingredients like fresh vegetables and yogurt. At the same time, of course, we do not use preservatives when we bake our own.
Of course, homemade dog biscuits don’t last forever.
It is best to only bake quantities that you will really use up soon. It is best to freeze excess dog biscuits and only thaw them again when needed. Biscuits usually last a day or two longer in the refrigerator.
The biscuits stay fresh a little longer if they are allowed to dry out really well. After the actual baking time, let them dry for a while with a low scoop.
Always refill biscuits when they are completely cold. This prevents moisture from condensing on the edge of the container. For the same reason, do not fill your carrot cheese in completely airtight closed containers.
It is better to keep them in the fresh air or in a cloth bag in a dry and not too warm place.
