Turmerics Nutritional Value Of These Homemade Anti-Inflammatory Vegan Cinnamon Dog Treats

So many people have heard of turmeric to help with joint pain caused by inflammation and yes dogs can eat it as well. Of course in moderation. For every 10 pounds of weight a dog can have 1/8 to 1/4 of a teaspoon a day. This can take up to 2 -3 days before relief starts to help for your pup. Although, if your dog suffers from chronic pain it may take a little longer.

Turmeric can also help with problems such as swelling, irritation, digestive disorders, skin, healthy brain function and healing. What most people don’t know is that it can help as an antioxidant, antiviral, anti-fungal, antibacterial and to fight cancer.

Nutritional Value Of Ginger And Cinnamon In Dog Treats

We all know that ginger is wonderful for helping with digestion, nausea and motion sickness, but it can also help your pup. Yes, dogs can have ginger in small quantities. It is packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, ease bloating, increase heart health and promote healthy blood circulation.

You may ask, ‘Why cinnamon?’ Cinnamon helps dogs just like it does for humans only in moderation. It helps dogs as an anti-inflammatory for joint pain to help dogs suffering from arthritis. It helps with managing dog diabetes with limiting the amount of sugar that may enter the blood stream. Cinnamon is wonderful but make sure to use it in moderation because it can burn the dogs mouth. Do not give over a teaspoon of cinnamon a day. I would give less than that. For more information on doses go here.

Everything I give you in this recipe today is healthy and good for a dogs wellbeing. That is why this is a treat not a dog meal.

Using A Juice Machine To Make Carrot Pulp

These yummy dog treats are made with carrot pulp that is left over after making carrot juice. I make a lot of carrot juice so I try to come up with recipes to use the pulp for as fiber. One of the recipes is one that I am sharing with you today.

For this Homemade Anti-Inflammatory Vegan Cinnamon Dog Treat I use 3 large carrots in my Hurom juice machine. That is enough for 1 packed cup of carrot pulp for these treats. Then you get to drink the juice. Double rewards!

If you don’t have a juicer I highly recommend this Hurom juicer. The juicer has two different ways to make the juice, with or without pulp. It is one of the easiest juicers to clean. It also runs very quiet so that I can make juice when my honey is sleeping. Perfect!

How To Make Homemade Anti-Inflammatory Vegan Cinnamon Dog Treats

Like I have said in my other recipe for Homemade Anti-Inflammatory Vegan Dog Treats is that this recipe may vary. It all depends on the liquid of the yogurt (I use vegan coconut or oatmeal yogurt brands) and how packed the carrot pulp is. So you may have to use more coconut milk (or you can use oat or rice milk) in this recipe to make it like a cookie dough consistency.

First in a small bowl mix the flaxseed meal together with the water. Mix it together well and let it sit aside to congeal for five minutes. This will work as an egg substitution. (Yes! Surprise! Dogs can eat flaxseed meal)

Then I take the skins off of the chickpeas. Just pinch them at the pointed end of the chickpea and the skins come right off. Like the photo below. This helps to have better digestion for the dog because the skins have lectins in it and causes leaky gut problems. Then they will be healthier for your dog.

Mash the chickpeas with a fork. Then I put the mashed chickpeas, carrot pulp, yogurt and coconut milk (or desired milk that a dog can have) into a large bowl. Mix it all together.

In another small bowl add the flour and spices together and make sure there are no lumps of spice. I use a fork for this.

Pour the flaxseed mixture into the large bowl of carrot mixture and stir. When combined add the flour and spice mixture into the wet ingredients. Mix together until it is the consistency of cookie dough or a little softer. Add more coconut milk if desired.

How To Bake and Air Fry the Homemade Anti-Inflammatory Vegan Cinnamon Dog Treats

Spread dog treat dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet pan and form it into a rectangular shape. Make sure it is only 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until the top is like a soft leather to the touch. After it is done take out of the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

Cut the baked dough in half inch cubes with a very sharp knife. (I use Ninja Knives) You will have to clean the blade of the knife to help stop the dough from sticking to the blade. This will help! You will also need a thin metal spatula to help pick up the cubes like in the photo.

Put enough dough cubes in the air fryer basket so that they are not touching. Cook in the air fryer for 10 minutes at 370 degrees.

This should take about 4 batches. Let them completely cool. Put them in a zip lock freezer bag and freeze until you need them. Keep them frozen and they will last 3 months or in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days.

Ingredients

Units Scale

Homemade Anti-Inflammatory Vegan Cinnamon Dog Treats

  • 2 Tbsp Organic Flaxseed Meal
  • 4 Tbsp Water
  • Mix together in a small bowl and let congeal
  • 1 cup of Packed Organic Carrot Pulp (Left over from making carrot juice)
  • 1 cup Peeled Organic Chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup Organic Coconut or Organic Oat Yogurt (Unsweetened)
  • 3 Tbsp of Organic Unsweetened Coconut or Oat Milk (may need more if batter is too thick)
  • 1/3 cup Organic Rice Flour
  • 1 tsp Saigon Cinnamon (light colored, best for liver health)
  • 1/2 tsp Organic Turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Organic Ginger
  • 3 dashes of Ground Black Pepper


Instructions

Homemade Anti-Inflammatory Vegan Cinnamon Dog Treats

  1. Use 3 scrubbed large clean carrots in juicer to make enough carrot pulp for this recipe. This should make 1 packed cup of carrot pulp. Put pulp into a large bowl.
  2. Clean the skins off of 1 cup of organic rinsed and drained chickpeas and then mash them into tiny pieces with a fork but not a paste. Put them in with the carrot pulp and mix together well.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. In a small bowl mix the flaxseed meal with the water. Set aside to congeal, about 5 minutes.
  5. In the large bowl with the carrots and chickpeas add the yogurt and coconut milk. Mix together well. After the flaxseed has congealed add it to this bowl and mix well.
  6. In a small bowl mix together the rice flour and spices. Mix with a fork to get any spice chunks out. Pour into the large bowl of carrot mixture and mix it all together. You may need to add more coconut milk. You want it to be the consistency of cookie dough.
  7. On a parchment lined baking sheet pan add the dough and make into a rectangular shape and 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until the top is soft and spongy like a soft leather. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  9. With a sharp knife ( I use Ninja Knives because they are extremely sharp). Cut the short length into 1/2 inch wide slices like the photos above. Use a paper towel to clean the blade of the knife to stop the dough from sticking to the knife. It will be a little sticky! then cross cut them the long way to create little cubes. Go Slow!
  10. Arrange the cubes in the basket of an Air Fryer and leave space in between them. (Like in the photo above)
  11. Cook the treats in the Air Fryer at 370 degrees for 10 minutes. They should be light brown in color when they are done and soft in the middle.
  12. Put them in a large plate lined with a paper towel to collect moisture to cool. They should be cool by the time the next batch is done.
  13. Let cool completely before putting them into a zip lock freezer bag.
  14. Do not leave the treats out on the counter.
  15. This recipe should make about 9oz. of treats. They will be good for 5 to 7 days in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer.
  16. Enjoy!
