NEW ! Pumpkin Oatmeal crisps

I have been experimenting lately for a new healthy treat for my dogs, they love pumpkin and they love oatmeal, so here is what I came up with 

1/2 to 1 cup of pumpkin canned 

4 tbsp of molasse or honey or maple syrup
2 tbsp olive , canola or avocado oil ( or any other vegetable oil) 
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
about 2 cups of oatmeal, processed in the food processor or blender to cut in coarse flour consistency

Mix together all ingredients using oatmeal last and add just enough to make a stiff well mixed paste.  Mold into a square log of about 1″ thick by 2-3 inches across.  Wrap in parchment paper or plastic and refrigerate until fairly stiff.  Cut 1/2 slices, recut into 4 pieces and flatten with a fork. Put on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 350 F for about 45 minutes to 1 hour until golden brown and crunchy.

Cool on a rack, put in your cookie jar, they will not last that long !
