Doggie Treats

As I was importing pictures into my computer I can across a very cute picture of our puppy dog! Only she is no longer a puppy and more like a cow!
Daisy Dog
This post as you can probably tell will be related to dogs! I wanted to give Daisy a treat, but didn't want to run out to the store and buy any! So i went on good old Pinterest to find a recipe and came across this one here! :)

Now lets get started with what you need.....The best part of this recipe is that it involves very few ingredients, and takes no time at all.
Oats, baby food, cookie cutter
All you need is oat flour, whole wheat flour or I'm sure you could use all purpose flour. Just make sure your puppy/dog does not have any allergies to any of these ingredients before making these! :) 2 4 oz jars of baby food. You can use any size you want, depending on the size of the jar will give the treats a little more flavor. But keep in mind you may need to add a little more flour.  (I used corn and sweet potato, but you can use any flavor as long as it doesn't have onion/onion powder or grapes/raisins.)  And last thing is some sort of cookie cutter. I didn't have anything dog or bone shaped, so i just used a small circle cookie cutter. And thats it. Simple right?! And don't forgot to preheat your oven to 350°.
Oat Flour
 I didn't have flour in the house (weird right?!) but did have tons of oats, so i got out my favorite kitchen gadget.... The Nutribullet, and made oat flour myself.

 Now time to mix everything together, and i forgot to mention in the ingredient list that i added a little bit of parsley. I guess it is supposed to help with bad breath, but my dog has the worst breath ever and it did not help hers. :)
Mix, Mix, Mix
 Keep mixing it together, it will turn out dough like.

 Now flour your surface and place dough on it. Roll out dough until its about 1/4 inch thick.  Once thats done use your cookie cutter to cut into desired shapes.
I lined my baking sheets with wax paper and placed the treats on it.  Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes. Let them cool, and then store them put them in a paper bag. You can also use a air tight container but they will get soft. * I tried just a ziploc bag because thats all i had, and they do not work. The treats became soft and moldy real fast.
