Easter is coming and we have been contacted by a company called Turtle Mat who are making really beautiful wooden pet bowl holders, to find a recipe for dogs which will encourage us all not to give our dogs chocolate (toxic to them), but to offer a healthy treat instead. We asked the very lovely Tina at Paws For Cake pawsforcake.co.uk in Hayle to come up with a recipe, which we shall be baking and photographing later on today :-).
Here is a recipe for Honey Hearts treats for your dogs.
Tina uses a heart shape cookie cutter but any shape can be used.
5 oz (150g) wholewheat (wholemeal) flour
5 oz (150g) porridge oats
1 oz (30g) unsalted butter (softened)
2 tablespoons of honey
3 fl oz (100ml) milk
flour for dusting
Mix all the flour and oat together in a bowl add butter, honey eggs and milk. Mix together with wooden spoon or kneed with hands. If mix is too dry add a little more milk, if to wet add a little more flour.
Preheat oven to 160 degrees C.
Turn mixture out onto floured work surface and roll dough out to about 1cm cut out shapes and place on a non stick baking sheet.
Bake for 30 – 40 mins until golden brown. Turn off oven and leave biscuits to cool in oven.
Store you treats in an air tight container and remember they are treats, so don’t let your dog have too many.
Happy baking everyone, please send us your photos too… ours will be coming soon.
