Carrots are not only a yummy treat for dogs, but they're packed with tons of nutrients too! By giving your dog carrots each day, they're getting fiber to help with bowel health, beta-carotene to help with eyesight, and Vitamin A to help with growth!

Homemade Carrot Cake Dog Treats

1 cup applesauce (plain, unsweetened, without any additives)
1/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter (unsalted and unsweetened)
2 large eggs
4 cups oat flour (plus 1/2 cup more if necessary and for dusting)
1 cup grated carrots (peeled first)
1/2 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened natural)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the applesauce, almond butter, and eggs together until blended.
  3. Add in the oat flour, carrots, and coconut flakes until just incorporated. (If you pinch a piece and it crumbles, add a little water. If it’s really sticky, you’ll need to add a little more oat flour, 1/4 cup at a time and not exceeding 1/2 cup. You want the dough slightly tacky, but not overly.)
  4. Transfer the dough to a surface lightly sprinkled with oat flour and knead 3-4 times until it comes together.
  5. Using a rolling pin sprinkled with oat flour, roll out the dough to a 1/2-inch thickness.
  6. Using cookie cutters, cut out the desired shapes and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Place in the oven and bake until the treats are dry and edges are golden, about 18-20 minutes.
  8. Let cool completely.
