Our Baked Treats

Everyone talks about healthy snacks these days - add the words organic, free range and you think you might be onto a winner. We value the idea of complete transparency in what we do. We happily share recipes and ingredients so you can make the most informed choice about what you feed your pupper. 

Lets start with the base for our treats

Flour

All our baked treats have our own flour mix. It includes (in the order of prominence below). The texture of the treats is affected, so they aren't as shiny and pretty as others, but we choose nutritional benefits over aesthetics every day. 

  • 30% Organic Coconut Flour 
  • 30% Grain-free oats
  • 20% Almond Flour / Meal
  • 10% Buckwheat Flour
  • 10% Brown rice flour

Applesauce

 

We make our own applesauce in house. It contains apples, raw, unfiltered honey and cinnamon. We blitz it (thank you nutribullet!) into a sauce which goes into every treat. 

Eggs

We use free range eggs only, sourced locally in all our baked treats 

Coconut Oil

We use virgin organic coconut oil in all our baked treats.

Why we use Icing Rarely. 

We occasionally add icing onto products - very occasionally. We don't believe icing is necessary or has any health benefits whatsoever, but we know it can be fun on the very rare occasion. If you buy your treats with icing, always ask for an ingredients list! 

Our icing mixture is a supplied "Pet Friendly" product - here are the ingredients, you can see why we don't use it often! It looks great, but really I wouldn't be giving this to my dogs except as a very rare treat for a special occasion. 

Arrowroot (Tapioca), Corn/Wheat Starch, Albumen, Milk Powder, Guar Gum, Corn Syrup Solids, Hydrogenated Vegetable Fat (coconut), Sodium Caseinate (milk), Acidity regulators (340, 452), Vegetable emulsifiers (471, 481)
