I love the versatility of the apple! Whether you use it as fresh as I did in my apple muffins, or cooked like in these Apple snacks, the result never disappoints: its sweetness is recognizable as a few other ingredients in the kitchen and dogs, like us bipedi, go crazy. Try to believe! Anyone who keeps this fruit in the house and just mix it with a few elements to stock up on walking biscuits or to keep in the house for a little vice every now and then.
I matched the Apple snacks to a small dose of maple syrup and ricotta cheese, very light and perfect for kneading because it allows you not to use eggs or other fats: useless to burden our dog too much, no? Less is more, says someone. And I agree!
