HEALTHY HOLIDAY DOG TREATS!

I’VE HAD A FEW PEOPLE REQUESTING THIS RECIPE!

TIRED OF GIVING YOUR SPECIAL FRIEND THOSE STORE BOUGHT TREATS  WITH ALL THE SALT AND PRESERVATIVES?  I DECIDED TO CREATE SOME HEALTHY TREATS USING ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS.  THEY ARE PACKED WITH B COMPLEX VITAMINS AND VITAMINS A AND C.

THESE “FUR MONSTERS” GOBBLED THEM UP PER MS. BROOKE!

BROOKE'S PUPPIES

HERE IS HOW TO MAKE THEM:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup real bacon bits
1 (15oz) can Bruce’s Yams in syrup (not candied) Drained, rinsed well and mashed**
1 egg
A sprinkle of beef bouillon (optional)

PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES F. MIX IT ALL TOGETHER – MAY NEED EXTRA FLOUR ON SURFACE FOR ROLLING AND CUTTING AND ON YOUR HANDS AND DOUGH AS YOU ROLL IT.* I USED MY HANDS TO FLATTEN SCOOPS OF DOUGH TO ABOUT 1/4 IN THICKNESS. USE COOKIE CUTTERS TO CUT SHAPES. BAKE FOR 30 MINUTES UNTIL GOLDEN BROWN.

*MY DOUGH WAS PRETTY STICKY SO I THINK REFRIGERATING IT FOR A TIME BEFORE ROLLING WOULD HAVE HELPED BUT THE EXTRA FLOUR DID WORK!

**YOU CAN USE A LARGE FRESH YAM, PEELED CUBED AND COOKED IN THE MICROWAVE UNTIL MASHABLE TOO.

DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF YOUR COOKIE CUTTERS THIS RECIPE YIELDS ABOUT 2 DOZEN TREATS.  I REFRIGERATED PART AND FROZE THE REST FOR LATER USE.  THEY SHOULD LAST UP TO 3 MONTHS IN THE FREEZER – JUST MAKE SURE TO THAW ABOUT 20 MINUTES BEFORE SERVING!
