Meagan's Treat Recipes!

Sophie and Dixie's mom here!

Nevis requested the recipes for the treats Meagan got the girls, and Meagan was kind enough to send those along to me!

Apple Cinnamon Dog Training Bits

4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 small apple grated
1 1/3 cup water

Preheat oven to 325º F.

In a bowl combine all ingredients except the apple and water. Grate apple into mixture and add water. Mix until it starts forming a dough. Turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead well. Roll out to 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick. Take a straight edge and score the dough horizontally then vertically to make a grid of 3/4-inch squares. Be careful not to cut through the dough completely. Place the dough on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with a nonstick spray. Bake at 325º F for 1 hour. Break apart for storage.

Carob-Dipped Peanut Butter Honey Drop Treats

3/4 cup flour
1 egg
1 Tbs honey
1 tsp peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup carob chips (approx.)

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Heat honey and peanut butter until runny (about 20 seconds in the microwave). Mix ingredients together and drop by 1/2 teaspoonful onto cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. (Makes about 45 to 50 small biscuits.) Melt carob chips in microwave or small saucepan. Dip cooled biscuits in carob or lay on a flat surface and brush carob over the biscuits with a pastry brush.

And there ya go!
