Why These Cranberry Oat Dog Treats?

We have been making homemade dog food exclusively for almost a year now for our three dogs. There have been so many benefits so far. We also enjoy giving our dogs delicious homemade snacks! When we are preparing their food, or making their treats, they know we are making it for them. They stare and salivate and can’t wait until their scrumptious little treats are ready! They LOVE these Easy Homemade Cranberry Oat Dog Treats Made With Fresh Milled Einkorn.

Is It Safe For Dogs To Eat Dried Cranberries?

Yes, it is not only safe for dogs to eat dried cranberries, but it is actually nutritious for dogs to eat cranberries. Of course, you want to make sure not to feed too much, so keep it in moderation. So make sure to look for unsweetened cranberries, as you don’t want added sugars. Cranberries are filled with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Also, it is important to note that dried cranberries can often be confused with Raisins, Raisins should never be given to your pup, because they are toxic to dogs. You can feed small amounts of dried or fresh cranberries, and there are even reports of cranberries helping to prevent cancer.

Make sure to use Cranberries, and NOT Raisins

Can You Feed Oats To Dogs?

Yes, you can feed Oats to dogs, just avoid any sweetened or flavored oats. But, plain Oats are beneficial to your dogs diet. In fact, dogs are not carnivores, as many people believe, they are actually omnivores. Oats Contain so many healthy things for dogs like, fiber, fatty acids, vitamins and overall nutrition. Also, the Omega-6 fatty acids in Oats paired with the vitamin B is great for dogs skin & hair coat.

Is It Safe For Dogs To Eat Eggs?

Yes, it is safe for dogs to eat eggs. Eggs also contain many nutrients our furry best friends need. These nutrients include

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin K
  • Vitamin B1
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
  • Riboflavin
  • Niacin
  • Folic acid

How many eggs a dog eats in a day depends on the size of the dog. On average, one egg per dog per day seems to be the most popular answer among experts. Just make sure eggs aren’t the main protein source.

Is Einkorn Good For Dogs?

Yes, Einkorn is good for dogs. Fresh Milled Einkorn is a fantastic source of Niacin, Vitamin E, manganese, protein, and lutein. So, this is also great for skin and coat and cancer prevention. The fiber is also great to help with digestion. Einkorn is an “Ancient Grain” which is also one of our original wheats. Also, there has been research showing that even people with a gluten/wheat sensitivity can tolerate and enjoy Einkorn flour. It is important to note, that if there is a true allergy to wheat, then it should be avoided. I have more info on Einkorn HERE

Ingredient List For These Cranberry Oat Dog Treats

  • 1 cup of Oats
  • 1/2 cup dried Cranberries
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2&1/2 cup Fresh Milled Einkorn Flour (Mill 1&2/3 cup of Einkorn Berries to get this flour)

Instructions For Making These Cranberry Oat Dog Treats

  1. Preheat oven to 350*F, and Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mill your Einkorn into flour
  3. In a mixing bowl (this step may mix easier with a mixer) combine ingredients and mix until no dry flour is left. If the dough is still dry, you can add a Tablespoon of water.
  4. Knead the dough until is comes together, this is a slightly dry dough.
  5. Either roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut cookie shapes, OR pinch off about a Tablespoon of dough, and roll it in your hands, then smash it down to form a cookie disk. Try to keep them all about the same size.
  6. Bake the treats for 20-25 minutes until the edges are slightly golden brown.
  7. Remove from oven to cool.
  8. Once the Dog treats are completely cool, they can be stored at room temperature for 3 days, or freeze for up to 4 months. (I usually keep a small amount out, and freeze the rest – I pull out about 3 days worth at a time)
