Tips for Making the Perfect Beet Waffle Dog Treats
To make the perfect beet waffles dog treats, there are a few tips to keep in mind:
- If using fresh beets make sure your beets are fully cooked and mashed before adding them to the batter. This will ensure that they mix in evenly and create a smooth texture (I used canned shoe string beets. A 15 ounce can, drained, yielded 1 cup of puree.)
- Don’t overmix the batter. Overmixing can lead to tough, chewy waffles instead of light and fluffy ones.
- Spray your waffle maker well to prevent the waffles from sticking.
- If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can also make these treats as pancakes.
Make the Waffles Just the Way Your Pup Likes them!
If you want to mix things up, there are plenty of variations of beet waffles dog treats that you can try. Here are a few ideas:
- Add some shredded cheese to the batter for a cheesy twist.
- Mix in some canned pumpkin for a seasonal treat.
- Add some dried herbs like parsley or oregano for some added flavor and freshness.
- Try using different types of flour, such as almond flour or chickpea flour, for a grain-free option.
Storing and Serving Beet Waffle Dog Treats
Beet waffle dog treats can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can also freeze them for longer storage. To serve, simply reheat the waffles in the microwave or toaster oven until they’re warm and crispy.
