The inclusion of fruits and vegetables is important for any diet, human or canine. Here is a recipe for fruit and vegetable strips for your dog. This will provide you with a relatively inexpensive way to make more rewards/treats for your dog that are healthy and tasty! 


  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup carrots, minced
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened organic applesauce
  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour (white if your dog has allergies)
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup of water


  • Cook your sweet potato (until soft) in the oven at 400℉ for a half hour or in the microwave for eight to ten minutes. 
  • Reduce oven heat to or preheat to 350℉
  • Smoothly blend the sweet potato and the banana together in a large bowl with a hand smasher or via food mixer. 
  • Mix in the carrots, flour, and oats. Carefully add in the applesauce and water. Mix vigorously. 
  • The ingredients will form a soft dough. Roll the dough on to a lightly floured surface until the dough is 1/8 inch thick.

  • Cook on a cookie sheet for twenty-five minutes.
  • Store leftover strips in the fridge for up to two weeks.
