Hi all! Welcome to Fabulous Friday, Fabulous Blog Series!
I would like to introduce our featured, fabulous Blogger, Bex & her Blog, My 17 in ‘17. Today she is sharing her Fabulous Dog Treat Recipe with us!
Before I get to her post, I would like share some background of herself, her blog & a peek into why she started My 17 in ’17.
OBR: Tell me what your blog is about?
Bex: I have decided to spend 2017 trying my hand at 17 things I have either never done, or tried before and failed at. This blog is a documentation of my journey!
OBR: Tell me a little about yourself?
Bex: I am a Colorado native now living on the edge of nowhere in rural Nevada. I am a graduate student and blogger with a solid foundation in business and design. As the daughter of an artist, I have always had a passion for communication through visual mediums. When I’m not knee deep in work or study, I can be found volunteering my time assisting with design projects or working on my art.
OBR: Why & when did you start your blog?
|At the end of 2016 I decided I didn’t want a New Year’s resolution, but I did want to try new things. 17 projects in 12 months seemed achievable. I decided to blog as a way to document my journey and share my experiences throughout the year.|
Now on to her guest post!
Oat & Baby Food Dog Treats
In our little house we have two very different dogs. Different likes, different dislikes. Different toys and different personalities. One dog is a 45 pound heeler, playfully bounding around the house like a circus clown. She is a goofy girl that will follow you anywhere and leaps up in the air at even the mention of the word treat. But when it comes to dog-friendly people food she can be kind of picky. Now her more serious counter part is our senior-citizen terrier. He is happier to just sit back and supervise the house from the comfort of the couch. Due to his age most common dog biscuits are just too big and hard for him. So when I’m looking for treats I always try to find something that can cover both of their needs. These cookies fit the bill perfectly! They’re healthy and can be made small enough for the terrier, but still hearty and satisfying enough for the heeler. And the oats are great source of soluble fiber to help keep both of them happy and regular.
These cookies are a breeze to make and our pups just adore them!
- 1/2 a cup of flour – I happen to be using almond flour, but whole wheat or buckwheat are also great choices.
- 1/2 a cup of oats
- One 4 oz jar of baby food – be sure to check the label to make sure there are no onions, grapes, or anything else toxic to dogs in the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Mix the three ingredients together until blended. The dough should be dry enough that you can roll it with a rolling pin. Add a little extra flour as needed to thicken up the mix if it is too sticky.
Roll out the door and cut any way you want. I make 1″ squares, but you could make them bigger or use a cookie cutter if you prefer. Then lightly grease a cookie sheet and place cookies about 1/2 inch apart.
Bake for about 20 minutes, and allow to cool before storing. Store in a container un-refrigerated for up to a week, in the fridge for about two weeks, or in the freezer for up to three months.
And there you have it! Thanks for stopping by!
