Make your dog  homemade special treat with this recipe from Whole Foods.  It’s nutritious, easy, and you can even use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make these tasty snacks the perfect Valentine’s Day treat! Your pooch will repay you in kisses.

  • 3/4 cup cooked plain mashed sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons chicken or beef broth (or water)
  • 2 cups organic 100% whole wheat pastry flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1/2 cup fine yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped mint
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and grated

Preheat oven to 325°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together sweet potatoes and broth. Add flour, cornmeal, mint and apples and stir until combined. Knead the dough a few times until it holds together. Roll out half of the dough on a generously floured surface until about 1/4-inch thick. Use (2-inch to 4-inch) cookie cutters to cut out treats. Transfer to baking sheets; reroll and cut the scraps. Bake until dried and just slightly golden on the bottoms, 35 to 40 minutes. Turn off the oven, leave oven door ajar and let the treats cool and dry out in the oven for 1 to 2 hours. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
