When we made our Beet Whipped Ricotta the other day, we decided to boil an extra beet to make some Dog Treats for our pups (especially since we know they love beet based cookies). For this particular dog treat recipe, we used a large beet, so we had a lot more liquid once we pureed it than we normally do for the morsel style cookies we usually make. So, rather than using extra flour to get that normal cookie consistency (which would have yielded a mega-batch), we decided to press on with a wetter dough and make the treats in brownie style! Then, once we got the brownies out of the oven, we let the patty cool before cutting it. Based on how the dogs have been acting around these treats, we think they are very happy with how the brownies came out!
Time: 2 Hours (most of which is beet boiling time)
- Large Beet
- 1 Tablespoon Powdered Goat Milk
- 2 Tablespoons Flax Meal
- 1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
- Rinse your beet, and then place it in a pot. Cover with water, and boil until the beet is soft enough to easily pierce with a fork.
- Remove your beet from the water, and set aside to cool.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and grease a small pie plate.
- When your beet is cool enough to the touch, use your thumbs to peel the skin off.
- Cube the beet itself, and place it in your blender with a little water. Then, puree.
- Scoop your beet puree into a mixing bowl, and add in your goat milk powder, flax meal, and flour. Stir to combine.
- Pour your batter into your greased pie plate and then bake for 35-40 minutes.
- Remove from the oven, and let cool.
- Pull your brownie from your pie plate, and cut it into small pieces (we used a pizza cutter for this).
- Have your dogs sit, devour, and enjoy!
