These Homemade Dog Treats Have the Celebrity Seal of Approval (& Your Dog Will LOVE Them!)

Nicola Millbank is an actress best known for her television roles on shows such as 'Mount Pleasant', 'Silent Witness' and 'Mr Selfridge'. An avid foodie by night and with her beloved dog, Darcey by her side, Milly has devised an inventive food guide which breaks with the current trend of sugar­free, dairy­free, happiness­free food and gets us back to enjoying comfort food using clever, healthier substitutes that taste just as good – if not better. Her ethos is to always cook from scratch, eat healthy Monday to Saturday and then on Sunday eat whatever indulgent gooey, gorgeous grub your heart desires.

If you've read Nicola's recent interview with us, you'll not only know all about her sidekick, Darcey, but you will have seen that she says the key to cooking success is in the preparation, and it's all about having fun and getting creative whether you're cooking for you or your four legged friend.

Here's Nicola...

Darcey loves to eat fruit and veg as part of her daily meals. But for those doggies that don’t and have a kibble or protein rich diet, it’s good to get some fibrous fruit and veg into them. My rustic ‘Ruff’age dog treats do just what they say on the tin. Easy and inexpensive to make, Darcey loves them and I’m sure your pup will too!

Preparation is key to cooking success, so here's what you will need...

2 cups of wholewheat flour
1 cup of rolled oats
1 large carrot, grated
1 apple, grated
1 cup of warm water

Method...

- Onto a clean tea towel, grate the apple and carrot, bring the corners together and then squeeze out as much liquid as you can.
- Pour into a bowl, add the flour and oats and combine with the warm water bit by bit until a dough forms.
- Kneed for a few minutes and then take small chunks, roll into a ball and flatten with a floured fork.
- Place on a non-stick baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 30-35 minutes.

Tell us how you got on making your own 'Ruff'age dog treats following Nicola and Darcey's recipe!
