Simple Homemade Dog Treats Recipe

Secret Recipe Club has gone to the dogs with this Simple Homemade Dog Treats Recipe. Ok not really I just chose to create a recipe that This Mama Cooks that happened to be this Dog Treat cookie recipe. I love the 2nd Monday of the month when it is once again it is time for the Secret Recipe Club reveal. So fun to go through other food blogs and find a recipe to try. Even more exciting is to see what others thought was an interesting recipe to try off my blog. Essentially it is like secret santa just with recipes! Simple Homemade Dog Treats Recipe is the one I picked. 


 For those of you new to this club concept, each month each blogger is assigned another blog and secretly find a recipe post that we would like to try, finally to reveal our experience with their recipe. You are sure to find some wonderful and low fat recipe on This Mama Cooks on a Diet like Dairy Free Key Lime Mouse  or these Gluten Free Strawberry Rhubarb Crisps.  They all look so good. She has been blogging for 10 years and has been keeping busy sharing wonderful recipes that even those on a diet can eat.

Simple Homemade Dog Treats Recipe

Funny thing is I thought they were going to be a disaster because I had the wrong ingredient in my head, I just read turkey baby food and purchased those little nasty jars of pure turkey. I am no stranger to homemade dog treats, I have made quite a few since Chloe came alone. I even made her a homemade Dog cake for her first birthday. 
However, when I got home I was floored and I did not have time to go back to the store as I was leaving for 5 days and the priorities of my do-to lists were building. We had to improvise this Dog treat recipe with a can Chicken and Gravy Dog food.

At this point I was not sure if this was going to work. Look at the shreds of chicken in the batter. I really could have puree the dog food but who has time.
Rolling the dough out was a little challenging, so I just scooped balls and flattened them.
