I made these but did not add the garlic powder. I used baby food jarsful of carrots. I had to add about 1/2c more of flour so that I could roll out..the wiggle butt boxer boys LOVE these, Thanks for sharing this recipe Chef.

Today my vet. put my Yorkie on a low protien diet for his kidneys. I found this recipe and went to town to purchase the ingredients. I was thinking this is a waste of my time and money because Mickey never likes anything new. I was very supprised when he ate one and begged me for another one. I made large treats with a biscuit cutter for my large dogs that are outside. They loved them too.
Thank You !

I'm not entirely sure why this is, but I've heard that it's best to use rice or potato flour instead of whole wheat flour when making any kind of dog treats. Even all-purpose flour is better. Many dogs can not tolerate the wheat gluten, which can give them upset stomachs or uncomfortable bloating, etc.
Most recipes I have found use the wheat flour anyhow. To be on the safe side, try a different type of flour, or research this. If you find a solid answer-- please let me know! My furbabies will thank you! :)

We recently had to put our 12 year old collie mix on a low protein diet due to kidney problems. He had always had treats but I couldn't find anything low protein at the pet stores. I made this recipe and he absolutely loves these treats. I used pure canned pumpkin as the vegetable.I am anxious to try it with carrots next time.I also had to add more flour.Thanks for a great recipe.
