Apple Carrot Nibbles - Wheat Free Dog Treats

I am always on the lookout for good and healthy dog treat recipes. Thing is, I also want them to be easy. :)  I found these treats made with applesauce, carrot, and rice flour and decided to give them a go. They were very simple and easy to make and my dogs love them, in fact I already need to make another batch!

This is where I found the recipe.

I didn't make any changes but plan to double it next time. The recipe said it made 70 treats each using about 1 teaspoon of mixture but I only ended up with 33, less than half of that.

It took one small carrot to make the 1/2 cup grated carrot called for. The carrot needs to be grated fairly fine so I don't recommend using pre-grated carrot unless you chop it up a bit more.

So this is what I did...

Assemble ingredients.

Mix Rice Flour, oats, and cinnamon.

Mix applesauce, carrot, molasses, and eggs in a separate bowl.

Mix all together into a ball.

Dip teaspoon sized mounds onto greased cookie sheets (or line with parchment paper)

Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.

Let cool and serve!

  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup finely grated carrot (see note)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp molasses
  1. Preheat oven to 350 ° F
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the rice flour, rolled oats, and cinnamon.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the applesauce, grated carrot, eggs, and molasses.
  4. Make a well in the medium bowl and pour in the applesauce mixture.
  5. Mix thoroughly until well combined.
  6. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  7. Drop teaspoon sized clusters on the baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Storing & Yield: These wheat free dog treats will last in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. They will be good in the freezer for 4 months. The yield is approximately 70 teaspoon sized treats. You can make them larger for a larger breed dog, just be sure to bake them an additional 5-10 minutes.  (My note: this recipe only made 33 small treats for me).
  • Carrots You can save time in this recipe by purchasing already grated carrot. But you will still need to coarsely chop the grated carrot so it will blend well with the applesauce.
