Juice Pulp Dog Treats

I don’t want to throw away any food scraps. So, using the juice pulp that I don’t want to put into the compost pile I create dog treats. Here is a quick recipe and some variations of it.

Juice Pulp (from juicing 1 lb carrots and apples, shown here)
1 flax seed “egg” (1 TBS ground flax seeds and 3 TBS water)
1/4 to 1/2 cup oats (actually optional)

Adding nut butter will aid in them holding together even better. (My dogs love peanut butter.)


  1. Combine all ingredients and mix together well.
  2. Form into mini balls approx 1/2 inch diameter
  3. Bake in oven at 350 degrees F for 15 – 20 minutes
  4. Finish in dehydrator for final crunch and to keep longer for storage. (optional)
  1. Dehydrate ONLY – this is my favorite way actually and how I prepare treats most often
  2. Could make into small disc instead of balls
  3. Substitute green juice pulp from lettuces/apples and dehydrate ONLY
