- Get a parchment paper-lined on a baking tray or you can use a silicone baking mat and get your oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

3. Oatmeal Dog Treats
This delicious-looking cookie treat recipe is by Erin from Brownie Bites. So, to make this treat you will be needing:
- 1 ripe banana
- A cup of shredded carrots
- ¼ cup of unsweetened apple sauce
- ¼ cup of water
- 1 and a half cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup oats
Directions to make:
- Preheat the oven to 350F.
- Mash the carrots and banana together in a big bowl, at that point, add apple sauce and water.
- Add the oats into that mixture and mix it with a gentle hand. Then add the flour gradually until the mixture converts into the dough.
- Now, sprinkle some flour on the countertop and roll out the dough to about ½ inch thick.
- Use a cookie shape cutter to cut out the treats (or any shape cutter of your decision!) and keep the treats on a sprayed treat sheet.
- Bake for 25 minutes, and afterward turn off the oven and let the treats remain inside for an extra 2-3 hours. This will dry them out further, making a chewy (or crunchy, contingent upon how long you let them get dried out) treat with a more drawn-out time span of usability!
