I’d like to say I wouldn’t normally do this sort of thing, or even I’ve never done this before, but we all know I’d be lying.
Recipe for Oatmeal Cookies for Dogs
Recipe 162 of 365
Inspired by a book called Real Food for Dogs, this is my first self-directed foray into the canine culinary world. They’re easy, and although I didn’t like them so much myself, according to Bromley and Scout, they’re quite tasty. Mmm, lowfat chicken-flavored pie crust.
TIME: 15 minutes, plus 15 minutes baking time
MAKES: 5 to 6 dozen
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole oats
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2 teaspoons salt
2 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat, and set aside.
Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a hand mixer), stir the dry ingredients just to blend. Whisk the eggs, oil, and broth in a small bowl to blend, then add to the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until completely combined. The mixture should have roughly the texture of cookie dough.
Dump the dough onto a large cutting board (or wooden counter), gather it together with your hands into a big ball, and roll it out to about 1/2” thick. (The dough may seem crumbly, but like pie crust, this is okay.) Use a pizza slicer to cut it into 3/4” squares. Transfer the squares to the baking sheet, leaving about 1/4”- 1/2” between each square (they won’t spread much), and bake for 15 minutes, or until hard and beginning to brown.
Cool completely, and seal in an airtight container.
