When Eleanor had days off for Christmas break she decided that she wanted to make dog treats for our dog, Miss Dorothy and Miss Dorothy's friends. She found a few recipes on the internet and combined them to come up with the recipe I'll list below. There was NO WAY I was going to the store to get ingredients for dog treats...she really had to figure out how to make them from things in our house.
For a girl who isn't too patient making human cookies, she did a very good job of rolling out the dough and cutting out the treats. Dogs seem to love them, so it's a definite win! Paul tried one and said that it tastes bland. I just couldn't try it...ugh.
Eleanor's Dog Treats:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In a large bowl blend:
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c flax seed
1/2 c rolled oats
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add:
1/2 c water
1/2 c bacon grease
1/4 c peanut butter
May need to add a bit more water until the dough can be rolled out. Roll it to 1/4-1/2" thickness and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter. Bake 20 minutes then turn them and bake an additional 15 minutes.
They seemed a bit fragile to me...but dogs like them...and that was the objective, so it all works.
Unlike my puppy chow post , this recipe really is for dogs.
