Now that the holiday season is behind us for another year, you can maybe find the extra time to cook for your four legged Yorkie family a few special treats. They will love them for sure.
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 cup shredded carrot
- 1/8 cup water
- 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour or any other flour type
- 1 cup oats
Preheat oven 350 degrees
Mash carrots and banana together well.
Add applesauce and water then fold in the oats and gradually mix in the flour until the dough is formed.
Once you have a dough ball formed take the ball of dough onto a lightly floured cutting board or counter top and roll the dough out to about a half inch thick square.
Use a small biscuit cutter or a special shaped cutter of your choice.
Bake for 25 minutes on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Turn off oven at 25 minutes and let the treats sit inside oven as the oven cools. About 2 to 3 hours after turning the oven off should do. This makes the treats chewy but crunchy. The longer they are left in the oven during cooling the cruncher they will be.
Store in a cool dry place in a air tight container if possible. Give treats daily for a tail wagging good time.
