In 2009 we started preparing our own dogs’ meals using fresh ingredients to supply them with the best nutrition possible. We stopped feeding them commercially prepared food and completely switched to using minimally processed foods like fresh meat, fresh vegetables, bone broth, coconut oil, and oatmeal.
Once we were no longer buying or using commercially prepared dog food it made sense to also stop using commercially prepared dog treats. After a few weeks of research and development we came up with the Granola Barks recipe.
Granola Barks® are a premium dog treat or snack made with 3 nutritious and tasty ingredients: Oats (Naturally Gluten-Free), Broth (Bone, Veggie, or Peanut Butter), and Coconut Oil. We also add a drop of Vitamin E, which is a natural preservative.
The simplicity of the recipe allows for the natural aromas of each individual ingredient to stand out and create an incredibly positive behavioral response, often from picky eaters too. Digesting the treat is also accomplished easily due to the simplicity of the recipe.
