Green Bean Crunchies are healthy dog treats that are ideal for adult dogs, especially overweight dogs. Dogs love these crunchies and you’ll love that there are only two ingredients, both which are superfoods. Green beans are an excellent source of vitamins, A, C, and E, as well as fiber, potassium, and magnesium. Dogs thrive on antioxidant rich foods such as green beans. Olive oil is another superfood that has many health benefits for dogs. This antioxidant helps to give dogs more energy, improve their immune system, and reduce dry skin. Green Bean Crunchies are a good choice when giving a treat to overweight dogs. Be sure to use portion control when giving your dog any type of treats or biscuits.

Grain-Free Dog Treats
16 ounces frozen, cut green beans (about 5 cups), thawed and any excess water drained (without salt)

Preheat oven to 170 degrees.
Add green beans and oil to a mixing bowl and toss to coat beans. Evenly spread green beans on a large, parchment lined or non-stick, baking sheet. Dry beans in the oven for 8 hours or until all beans are crunchy. Turn off the oven and allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
