Humans drink chamomile tea for its anti-anxiety effects and mild sedative properties. The herb has the same effects on dogs. (It also helps with upset tummies.)

Pumpkin seeds contain L-tryptophan and glutamate which promote calm and improve sleep. Oats have a calming effect on the nervous system, as well as anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing properties.

Equipment

  • Mini-chopper

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup oat flour[1]  
  • 1/2 cup applesauce[2] unsweetened
  • 4 tbsp pumpkin seeds raw and unsalted
  • 2 each chamomile tea bags[3]

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or non-stick baking mat.
  • Pulse pumpkin seeds in mini-chopper until finely ground.
  • In a medium bowl, add ground seeds and remaining ingredients. Mix well.
  • Roll into balls. The dough may be a little sticky at first, but as you work, it will stiffen. Oat flour soaks up liquid like a sponge.
  • Flatten balls using your palm and place on lined cookie sheet. Press with fork to further flatten.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until firm to touch, and bottoms are browned. For softer treats, bake for less time.
  • Transfer onto a wire rack and let cool completely.

Notes

Feeding Instructions

Depending on your dog’s weight and activity level, give 1-4 treats 30 minutes before bedtime. Begin with a smaller serving to gauge your dog’s sensitivity to the ingredients, then gradually increase to the suggested daily amount if needed.

Shelf-life & Storage

Crunchy – Keep stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. These treats will last 4-6 weeks[4]. Refrigerate for longer shelf-life.
Soft – Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. These can also be frozen for up to 3 months. If your pooch doesn’t have teeth issues, there’s no reason you can’t give her a frozen biscuit.

[1] Instead of buying oat flour which can be pricey, you can make your own by pulsing quick or rolled oats in a food processor.
[2] You can substitute with a fresh apple if you’d prefer. Just core it first after you’ve washed it, and then liquify in a food processor. The measurement for the recipe will be the same.
[3] Check the label to ensure the tea bag contains ONLY chamomile.
[4] The drier they are, the longer they will last. To dry them more after baking, you can either leave them in the oven for a few hours after you’ve turned it off, or dehydrate them.
