I don't have any dogs myself, but I made these for my neighbour's 14 year old black Lab as a treat. He LOVED it! I didn't have enough wholemeal flour, so I used 1 cup plain flour, 1 cup oats and 3 cups wholemeal flour and I skipped the egg wash. Since he's diabetic, I left out the brown sugar and maple extract, added in a pinch of cinnamon instead (I made sure it was safe to use). Had a wonderful smell while baking! Thank you, Kittencal, for sharing yet another one of your wonderful recipes, I have already passed on the recipe to my neighbour. And, a BIG thank you from Blacky! :)
I made these as a Christmas treat for my dog and my parents dog (my childhood dog) and they both loved them. I did make them without the sugar and the egg wash. Thanks for a fun and easy treat. It was so nice to not have to cut the treats out with a cookie cutter!
it should be noted that sugar is extremely bad for dogs and causes them to go blind later in life! just thought i should warn everyone if you're intrested in the health of your dog.
This recipe is a hit! I included them for the doggie family members in the Christmas gift baskets I have put together for my family and friends this year. So far, they're VERY popular. Easy recipe. I changed two things- I added a little peanut butter and used vanilla instead of maple flavoring. And hey, they're made with good, wholesome ingredients, so they could be people food, too!! And my kids even like them!! ;) Thanks for sharing this recipe with us.
I have these in the oven right now, and boy, do they smell good. I changed the recipe a wee bit: used maple syrup instead of flavouring, omitted the sugar all together, and skipped the egg wash/coating step, too. What can I say I am lazy. This came together really quickly in the Kitchenaid mixer. I am sure my doggies will love these, that is if the humans don't eat them! hahaha!
These were the best! Made these for a dog park fund raiser! What a hit!!! Thanks!
My mother-in-law made these for all the doggies in our family for Christmas...it was a hit! When I ran out my pooch demanded more! I didn't have enough whole wheat flour...used half all purpose white flour and added a half cup of bulgar (cracked wheat). Instead of the brown sugar I used dark molasses and added less water. These were a hit too! Thanks Kittencal!
