GF Dog Treats

We took our dog, Jor-El, to the annual Dog Days of Summer at the JCC this Sunday. This is a huge event for Jor-El, as he loves swimming but can't be trusted to be left alone for ten seconds at Bow Wow Beach.

He came home and plopped down on the kitchen floor, exhausted and happy. I decided he deserved fresh baked dog treats. Besides, the other alternative was cleaning. Dog treats it was.

Eric joked that I should use the Hanukkah cookie cutters since we just got back from the JCC. I couldn't resist the challenge.

GF DF Dog Treats
1 cup oat flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
½ cup peanut butter
1 cup carrots
1 tsp ginger
¼ cup chicken broth
1 egg

Mix all ingredients together in food processor until smooth.

If you don't care about the shape, you can just roll them into balls and smoosh them into circles on the baking sheet.

If you want to go to the trouble of making shapes, chill the mixture for a half an hour, then roll out a section of the dough onto the baking sheet. The dough will still be sticky and moist.
Jor-El sports 80's post-pool hairdo.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool for 15 minutes, then give to dog. Dog will ask for more. Give in.
