Dog Treats: Sweet Carrot Kisses
Sweet Carrot Kisses are a cute carrot cookie with sweet potato (and apple); making a sweeter dog cookie. These cookies can be made without flour, but they lose any shape and come out of the oven more like chips -still taste good though. These measurements are approximate, so don't worry to much about it. If you don't have or can't find white rice flour try using regular flour or better yet potato flour.
2 cups cooked steamed chopped carrots
0.5 cup pureed sweet potato (or yam)
0.5 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 TBLS ground flaxseed
0.25 tsp baking soda
0.25 tsp baking powder
1 cup white rice flour
Mix the applesauce sweet potato in blender, add carrots (1/2 cup at a time) until all the carrots are blended, then add flaxseed. Let sit for a few minutes. In a bowl mix together white rice flour, baking soda, and baking powder. I then put the mix into a cake decorating tube, the kind used for frosting cupcakes. Pipe the mix onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake in the oven at 250 -275 F for two hours, turn off oven but leave cookies in oven with door closed for a couple more hours to get a crunchy dog treat.
