4 Healthy Trail Mix Recipes Your Dog Will Love (Plus a Bar You Can Share!)


Hitting the trails with your pup? You’re going to need snacks. Lots of snacks. And that goes for your doggo, too. Whip up one of these healthy trail mixes in advance to keep your pup energized on the day of your hike. If you’re running short on time, try the fruit-and-nut bar that you and your pup can share!

Lean Green Trail Mix

Green beans, Brussels sprouts, and peas, oh my! This combo packs tons of fiber, which will help keep your pup satiated all day. And tossing in our protein-packed turkey strips adds the perfect punch of flavor.

  3. Add all vegetables to a foil-lined baking sheet. Dry in oven for 3 hours.
  4. While the vegetables cook, tear Ollie Trusty Turkey Treats into bite-sized pieces.
  5. Remove vegetables from oven (you’ll know they’re done when they look withered and dried out). Once cooled, toss with the turkey treats.
  6. Store for up to 6 months in an airtight container or plastic bag.
