Several weeks ago there was a recipe for dog treats making the rounds on Facebook. It called for whole wheat flour. I really don’t like to give my dogs too much wheat since that can be food sensitivity for them. I substituted ground oat flour and added the Turmeric which is very good for people and pets. My bunch love these.
- 2 ½ cups Oat Flour (grind Regular Oats in a blender)
- 2 Eggs, beaten
- ½ cup Pumpkin, use 100% pumpkin not the pumpkin pie filling if you are using store bought
- 2 tbsp Peanut Butter
- 1 tsp Turmeric
- 1 tsp ground Cinnamon
- ½ tsp Kosher Salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Mix all ingredient together in a medium mixing bowl. Add a bit of water as necessary to make a workable dough but it will dry and stiff like a cracker dough. Spread some oat flour on your table top or cutting board so the dough will not stick. Roll out to about ¼ to ½ inch thickness. Cut into sizes appropriate for your dog. I have an Irish wolfhound so her pieces would be a bit big for a mini dog. Bake for about 30 -35 minutes or until hard and dry. Let cool and place in air tight container.
