Today, I decided to feature a recipe from owner of Paw Prints on my Heart Dog Groomer in Benton, WI, Angela. Angela was a high school classmate of mine who has always had a very special place in her heart for dogs. She opened up her Dog Grooming Business in October 2011. Angela made her passion into a career and I’m excited that she is sharing this recipe with me and my blog readers! Angela currently has 10 rescued canines as personal pets and makes sure that all her canine customers are treated just as special as her canines are! I hope you and your fur-buddy enjoy this recipe as much as me and mine!

Apple Dog Treats
Ingredients: 2 ½ Cups Whole Wheat Flour ½ Cup Rolled Oats 1 Finely chopped Apple 1 Beaten Egg 1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil 1 Tablespoon brown Sugar ½ Cup Cold water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Blend flour and oatmeal in a large mixing bowl, incorporate apple, egg, oil, brown sugar, and water until well blended. Flour your workspace and roll out your dough to desired thickness. I usually do about ½ – 1 inch thick.
Side note: The original recipe called for finely chopped or grated apples, I like to leave my apples a little chunky instead of grated. I like the idea of being able to see the actual piece of apple throughout the treat. If you leave your apples chunky, like I do, you may have to add just a little tiny bit more water. Be careful don’t add to much, a few drops will help so you can roll your dough.
Cut the cookies into desired shape and size. I use a cookie cutters to shape my treats.
Grease your cookie sheet. As long as the cookies are not touching, they are not to close on the sheet.
Place cookies on baking sheet and bake 25-30 minutes. I leave set on pan for an extra 10 minutes after they come out of the oven before transferring them to a cooling rack.
Side note: The original recipe called for baking 35 minutes after baking turn the oven off and leave cookies inside for another 30-45 minutes. Whenever I tried this my cookies ALWAYS burnt!!!
Once crisp and cool transfer to a zipper bag or airtight containers and freeze to preserve freshness!
Enjoy! This treat is by far my dog’s favorite. I also use this treat during most of my parades to throw out!
