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 canned4 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 !
