Zucchini Carrot Cakes (weight management dog treats)

Makes 2 dozen mini cakes


2 eggs
1 small zucchini, shredded
1 small carrot, shredded
2 tablespoons pumpkin-seed oil or sunflower oil
¼ cup milk, skim
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
¾ cup whole-wheat flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch salt


In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the eggs, zucchini, carrots and pumpkin seeds and milk until smooth and creamy. Add the pumpkin seeds and mix and set aside. In a smaller mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and the salt and mix well. Slowly add the dry goods to the wet a little at a time until combined and batter like constancy. Place by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet (or lined with parchment paper) bake little mini cakes in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick interested in each cake comes out clean. Allow to cool, store in a airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
