Doggie Green Bean Crunchies

0 from 0 votes

Delicious dog treats with just two ingredients.

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.

NOTE: Check with your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet’s diet. Also, please be aware of any allergies your pet may have to specific ingredients and avoid ingredients which have caused reactions in your pets in the past. If you are unsure about a specific ingredient found in one of our recipes, introduce the food to your pets in small amounts first. Doggie Green Bean Crunchies are intended as a special treat and should not be served as a meal or on a daily ongoing basis.

    1. I’m going to make these 2day, I’m sure Capone will love them, thanks so much for sharing ??‍♀️♥️?

    1. Philomena, I recommend up to 10 days. As long as they are thoroughly dried and crispy, 10 days should be fine. My dog usually eats them within a week. 🙂

  1. My dog loves FROZEN green beans…same benefits as this treat without the added calories of olive oil or the oven time. I buy the Costco organic frozen green beans because they are organic AND they thick and long. My dog is a pet assisted therapy dog and a hit with all the patients is when they feed my dog frozen green beans. Lots of smiles.

  2. Mine have been in about 4 hours now and they seem really oily. I wonder if it would be better with 1t instead. We shall see when they are done.

  3. I used my dehydrater over night but the beans look super scrawny and skinny. I blanched them and then dried. Is there another step I need to add? I only added a small amount of olive oil, no salt.

    1. Kristy, I don’t think so. I didn’t blanch my green beans and use the oven since it seems to produce a crispier green bean.

    1. Karin, My crunchies were fine for over a week, about 8 days. With three dogs that don’t last long. -:))

      Be sure they get to the crunchy stage and aren’t still chewy. Our dogs love them when they are really crunchy but won’t eat them if they are too soft.

  4. Thank you SO much! I feed mine green beans daily, but was looking for something quicker and easier when they go to “doggy camp”. I am grateful for your response!

    1. Ruth, All of our recipe ingredients have been researched extensively for safety. However, please feel free to use another oil, for example, unrefined coconut oil adds a touch of sweetness to these Green Bean Crunchies. 🙂

  5. My dog has acute chronic pancreatitis. His vet said he can only have his rx food and canned green beans as a treat. He doesn’t think canned green beans are a treat. Do you think they could be dried to crunchy in the oven? No oil allowed.

    1. Sharon, If drained well and patted dry with a paper towel, probably. Give your vet a quick call to make sure theses crunchies are O.K..
      Best to you and your dog. 🙂

  6. One of my pups is a diabetic and green beans are one of the few treats she can have, I plan to try these but without any oil, too much sugar,. I also make them a ground turkey meatball that they love.
    If you come up with any other ideas for diabetic dog treats, please post them.

    1. Toni, yes you can substitute carrots! Frozen would work best. If using fresh wash and peel the carrot and cut very thin!

    1. Roberta, Hmmmmm…never tried using canned. If you do, make sure they’re patted dry before drying out.

    2. Just so you know,canned green beans have a lot of sodium. The frozen beans don’t have any sodium. Salt may not be a problem for your furkids so it may not matter.

  7. Im going to attempt to make these for my 3 furbabies. I make them frozen treats all the time with alternating ingredients: Yogurt(Van./Stwbry), Sweet potatoes,Bananas, Peanut butter(smooth),Carrots,Sliced Grn.beans,squash…

  8. I have green beans fresh out of the garden and I’ll be cooking them in the oven. I’ve already washed them and let them dry shouldn’t the recipe work the same way.
    Are there other fresh vegetables that can be dried out this way? All the pups love raw carrots.
    Thank you for sharing.. 🙂

  9. My chocolate lab, Miley, just loves fresh green beens when I snap the ends off. And, carrot shavings as well.

  10. These freeze real well and will last a lot longer than an airtight jar. I use my food saver to freeze them. My three furbabies love them !

  11. Should they be stored in the fridge pin can I put them in an airtight Rubbermaid container and sit them on the counter?. I am making some right now for my 3 fur kids.

  12. Our 17 year old son has a one year old American Bully named Amish who loves string beans. Of course, he’s still a growing boy and will just about eat anything that doesn’t eat him first lol. He’s gonna love these beans and maybe, just maybe, he can persuade his Pit Bull and Chihuahua sisters to try these too ??

  13. I am so grateful to have found this post with the recipe. I’ve bought some of these green beans in a pet store before and they are very expensive. They had added ingredients I didn’t want in them for my pet as he has crystals in his bladder and has for many years. We finally have him in remission now and do not want anything to change this. He loves green beans and this is something I can do myself that’s a lot cheaper that I know he will enjoy.

    1. We’re so happy to hear you’ve found something both you and your pet love! I’m very happy to hear he is in remission and hope he has a long road of eating these tasty Green Bean Crunchies ahead of him!

      1. I just want you to know that I tried this recipe today with a little twist to save electricity. I defrosted the green beans on accu-thaw in my microwave until almost completely thawed. Then I took them and spread them on paper towels to let the water be absorbed into the paper until completely thawed. I then put them in my convection oven and baked at 170° until dried out. It only took 6 hours for the process. This oven uses a 110 outlet compared to a 220 outlet. 2 hours less baking time too. I’m sure towel drying had a lot to do with this. The towels were completed absorbed and they were extra absorbency ones too. I’m excited to see how my furry baby likes them tomorrow! I’ll be baking more soon I’m sure! 😉

  14. I want to know if you can use fresh green beans. Already do sweet potatoes. In which my dog along with our neighbors love. My dog has skin issues and anxiety. When she started wit these issues, we made sure to give foods grain free. Her dog has salmon as main ingredient. I make all of her snacks so she doesn’t get anything with additives. I also add coconut oil to her diet for her skin.

  15. How about using broccoli? My dog will not eat green beans. She is on a fresh food diet by NomNomNow, which is delivered monthly. It is calorie controlled. Do you know how many calories these treats provide. thanks,

  16. These did not turn out crispy at all. I tried first with fresh green beans and again with frozen green beans each time- no bueno!! I did both in my dehydrator and left in longer and still soggy?

  17. Just an FYI . I fed my dogs green beans everyday to supplement there meals. At age 4 my female developed bladder stones. They were analyzed and were Silica stones. Green beans are very high in Silica. She had to go on a low silica diet after that.

    1. Shawn, The Doggie Green Bean Crunchies are a treat and not intended for daily consumption. Thank you for the feedback.

  18. Love these. I now have a healthy snack that me and my granddog can share. I like them as much as he does. I have made them twice. I plan to try carrots and beets too. He loves them too. He usually gets canned green beans with his dinner so these are a great snack. Thank you.

  19. I dont add the oil. I sprinkle with nutritional yeast when they are damp then dehydrate in the oven. Nutritional yeast has a cheesy flavor.
