For this post it is So Easy My Dog Could Bake It, because I am going to share and blog about a dog treat recipe I tried. With all of the news about treats and food from China being bad for dogs, I thought I should look up making dog treats. This is also good because you can save a bit of money making them yourself rather than going out and buying them.... and with 5 dogs currently in the house, saving money when you can, is important!
This recipe was very simple to make and I think it is safe to say the dogs like them!
The recipe calls for four ingredients: 1 cup of sweet potato, 1/4 cup of applesauce, 21/2 cups of flour and 2 eggs. I put the sweet potato in the microwave for about 5 minutes after I poked some holes in it, and then I scooped the sweet potato out of the skin.

Another thing about making dog treats is cutting them. I did not use a cookie cutter, I just used a knife and cut them into two different sizes... the ones above and the ones below.
Overall I would say that these were a hit! Charlie followed me for a good 10 minutes after he ate his :-) I stored them in two separate sandwich bags... one for the small treats and a different one for the larger treats. It's been a couple of weeks and they still taste great! Oh, the most important thing... they are good for humans too!
