These are great for teething puppies. I wash and re-use the pudding cups and applesauce cups from the kids lunches. **UPDATE: My youngest puppy seems to be allergic to wheat or corn. We haven't figured out which one. As a precaution, I now omit cream of wheat, wheat germ and whole wheat flour for her. I just use all-purpose flour (3 tbsp) and up the powdered milk a bit more (2 tbsp). She still likes them and they don't make her itch.
- 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon white sugar (more or less, or can omit)
- 3⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 -2 tablespoon powdered milk (I used soy)
- 2 tablespoons wheat germ (optional)
- 1 tablespoon cream of wheat (optional)
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 egg
- garlic powder (NOT salt, good for flea control)
- chow mein noodles (only a few though)
- leftover rice or noodles or bits meat
- nuts (whatever you have on hand)
- dog food (moist or dry)
- bacon bits (mine are made with soy beans)
- Add all the dry ingredients to a medium sized bowl. Mix well.
- Then add all the wet ingredients. Mix well.
- Split the mixture into four or five pudding cups or applesauce cups. Only fill about 2/3 full as they do puff up.
- Add in any toppings. Push the toppings into the batter slightly.
- Place on a small plate.
- Put in microwave and cook on high for one or two minutes.
- Let cool.
- Serve to your pooch, cup and all. They will have fun chewing the goodies out.
- I let them have the cups for a few days and then throw them out and start all over.
- Can be used in the same style as a Kong.
- I give them to my dogs when I have company over. Helps prevent the muddy foot handshake!
Saturn, These turned out great!!! Unfortunately he worked out how to get the filling out of the cups in a few minutes, but he really enjoyed them anyway !! I have made them a few times, and will continue as he loves them. Thanks Saturn.
