Everyone has been asking me for the cookie recipe I use when making my dog’s favourite treats. Here it is!!
1 cup of Oatmeal (do not use the instant type)
¼ cup of Vegetable Oil (but you can use any type of fat)
1 cup of Boiling Beef Drippings (or we sometimes use boiling water when making bananas or chicken stock )
1 Clove of Garlic (or vanilla extract when using bananas)
1 teaspoon of Parsley (or rosemary if making chicken or cinnamon if using bananas)
1 cup of Rice Flour (or whatever flour you have on hand if a gluten allergy is not an issue)
2-3 tablespoons of Corn Syrup or Honey
Enough additional flour to make a stiff dough (amount will vary)
In a large mixing bowl, add oatmeal, fat and boiling beef drippings, and mix. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
Add 1 cup of flour, corn syrup, parsley, minced garlic and begin mixing. When well blended, begin to slowly add flour to make a stiff dough.
Take out of bowl and knead out on floured surface until smooth.
Preheat oven to 250F.
Roll dough to about ¼ inches thick and cut into shapes with your favourite cookie cutters. Place close together, but not touching (cookies will not spread much while cooking) on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 45-60 minutes or until cookies are dry and beginning to brown.
I hope your dogs enjoy these cookies as much as mine do. Thank you Missy (DG puppy raiser) for sharing this recipe with me years ago.
I’ll try and post an update on the dogs for everyone tomorrow or on the weekend at the latest….it’s been a while I know!
