Air fryers are becoming popular kitchen gadgets. They use hot-air circulation to cook food from all angles at once. If you've been looking for a way to use your air fryer to make a snack for your pup, these air-fried dog treats are simple and healthy.
Unlike traditional fried foods, an air fryer makes low-fat meals. Not only can you make healthier food options, air fryers also prevent the unwanted smell of frying foods inside your home. They are also very easy to clean!
In this video review, I'm using my COSORI Air Fryer. I explain all the features of this product and why I like it better than other options in my video review of the fryer. Keep in mind that these dog treats can be made in any air fryer as long as it has an adjustable temperature setting.
Air Fried Dog Treat Poppers Recipe
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 2 cups quick oats
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
Preheat your air fryer to 350˚F.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the applesauce and peanut butter. Mix the two together until smooth. Add the oats, flour, and baking powder. Mix until a dough forms.
As you can see, these air-fried dog treats are made with limited ingredients. They are ideal for dogs with food allergies or sensitivities. If your dog is allergic to wheat, choose gluten-free flour like chickpea, sorghum, or oat flour.
Fill the basket with a layer of dough balls. The balls shouldn't be touching, but they don't need to be spaced very far apart. DO NOT put more than one layer of dough balls in the fryer at one time.
Cook the treats at 350˚F for 4 minutes. Turn the dough balls over and air fry them for another 4 minutes. Remove the fully cooked dog treats and repeat this process until you've used all the dough.
Once the treats have cooled, you can feed them to your pooch. These treats will add unnecessary calories to Fido's diet, so be sure to feed them in moderation. You can store leftover air-fried dog treats in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
