Protein-Free Apple Dog Treat Recipe

For dogs that are allergic to protein, finding treats at a reasonable price can be difficult.  Why not bake your own?

For anyone looking for a very easy, tasty, protein-free dog treat, Chef Riley says this recipe is for you.


  • 2 cups of whole oats (old fashioned Oatmeal)
  • 2 cups of flour (I used tapioca flour but white rice flour or all purpose flour will do)
  • 1 apple (peeled and cored)  finely shredded
  • 4 tablespoons of water or vegetable stock


  • Preheat oven to 400
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and form them into dough.
  • Roll out the dough and cut out your favorite shapes for the cookies.  If you do not have a cookie cutter, don’t worry, use anything that can form a shape.
  • Place the cookies on a greased cookie sheet.  Since there is no leavening agent used, you can put the cookies very close together.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.  For crunchier cookies, turn off the oven and leave the cookies in there for another 30 minutes.
  • Cook cookies on a wire rack
  • Store in a seal-tight container
