Yesterday afternoon, I made some zero waste dog treats for my pup, Polly! She adored them, so I thought I’d share my recipe with you guys. We love to make fresh juice at our house, and I usually toss the leftover juice pulp in the compost. However, a fellow zero waster mentioned that you can use the pulp to make dog treats so I decided to try it out! Not only are they completely waste free but also vegan. Here’s the recipe I used:
3 cups leftover juice pulp (I kept leftover pulp in the freezer until I had 3 cups worth)
1 cup oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix together all ingredients. Roll out dough into cookie sized balls and place on a baking sheet. Bake treats until hard, about 15 minutes. Cool and then they are ready for your pup to enjoy!
These zero waste dog treats were so simple to make and such a fun way to use leftover juice pulp rather than just tossing it in the compost bin. I’m excited to experiment more with the recipe.
Do you have a favorite homemade dog treat recipe? Do you know of any creative uses for juice pulp other than dog treats and compost?
