I hope everyone had a great holiday, mine was so good, I dropped the ball last week on posting a recipe and product review! But I am back this week to share a great recipe for homemade dog treats!
*1/2 cup – 3/4 cups oatmeal (depending on how dense you want the treats)
1/4 cup powdered milk
2 small jars beef baby food (organic is best)
1 tablespoon peanut butter (either crunchy or smooth works great)
*You can also use Cream of Wheat or wheat germ in place of the oatmeal.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
3. Shape dough into hearts, bones, or any other doggie themed treat.
4. Place on a greased cookie sheet, or a silicone mat.
5. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
6. Cool. Store treats in your refrigerator for up to one week, freeze any leftovers.
Your cat will jump for more of these delectable treats!
3 oz Sausage or finely ground beef, or pork, or turkey, or chicken, whichever your cat loves.
2 Tablespoons Oatmeal (if your cat has allergies, you can buy gluten free oatmeal).
1 Tablespoon Catnip finely chopped
1. Grease a cookie sheet with olive oil
2. You will want to place this under broiler in your oven.
3. Knead the ingredients together very thoroughly and form into a large, flat oval.
4. Place onto the greased cookie sheet.
5. Broil under a medium heat for 5-7 minutes,turning frequently until the outside is crisp

Store the rest in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. You can freeze leftovers.
Is your dog’s digestive system sluggish? Do they need some extra fiber? Well here is a great recipe to kick up your dog’s digestive system and it tastes yummy enough for humans!
- 2 single-serving packets of plain instant oatmeal (or if your dog is allergic to gluten, you can buy gluten free oats and use about 1 cup of oats. Of course, if you have a small dog, you will have to cut this recipe down for your dog’s needs).
- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 banana, chopped
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 2 tablespoons honey
Prepare the oatmeal in a bowl according to package instructions. While it’s hot, stir in the peanut butter and banana. Top with the yogurt, then drizzle with the honey.
Sure to please all finicky palettes!
