It’s been a little while since I’ve concocted a new recipe and I’ve missed it, but , I do have to say, this recipe came primary from that fact that I am a WIMP when it comes to cold weather and not from the sudden urge to cook.
Let me explain..
You see, every Friday, our beautiful small town hosts a Farmers Market. You can purchase locally grown organic veggies, freshly roasted coffee beans, little knick knacks, and even some very special dog treats for your family fido friend.
Well, last weekend I was in need of said ‘fido treats’ but it was just too darn cold to venture to the market for this gal, so I decided to try to make some treats for our little guy myself.
After a little research and some playing around with ingredients, my first try was all it took!
I’ll Never Buy Store Bought Dog Treats Again
Making homemade, healthy treats for you pups is SUPER easy! It took me less than 15 minutes to mix all the ingredients – creamy peanut butter, oatmeal, gluten free flour blend, an egg, a banana and some apple sauce – up and about 10 minutes in the oven.
Yup.. that easy!
Now I didn’t have any cute dog bone cookie cutters or anything like that, so I just dropped the mixture on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and baked them till they were soft to the touch and a light golden brown.
All of this was, like I said, SUPER easy to do and Jaxson loves his new treats!
Hope you enjoy the recipe. If you make some for your pup, come back and let me know how they liked them!
