Trio of tempting treats...

Freddie loves all food, whether he should be eating it or not.. There have been a few incidents involving stolen food; he is oh so cute but oh so naughty at times.

Based on my trusty tester being bound to eat whatever I created, I decided to give my hand at homemade treats. Because nothing beats home cooked food, even for dogs. 

Using ingredients already in the kitchen...

I baked three different treats, the third was going to be a little different but having recently moved, my nutribullet base is still in a box so I couldn't turn the oats into flour. Freddie didn't seem to mind one bit.

Three treats using only three ingridents each...

1. Banana&peanut butter bites
You will need... half a ripe banana (easier to mash up), a heaped teaspoon of peanut butter and a sprinkling of gluten free oats.
To make... mash the banana mix in the peanut butter, then add and mix in the oats. Spoon onto the baking tray and pop in the oven till golden brown and firm on top. (The oven was at 180 degrees Celsius)

2. Apple and carrot frittata 
You will need... one apple, carrot (I used one and a half small carrots) and one medium egg.
To make... grate the apple (be careful not to include the core) and carrot and sqeeze out the excess juice, in a dish wisk the egg and mix in the apple and carrot form into little paties and place on a tray and bake, I had mine in the oven for 15minutes and they stayed together when I lifted them off the tray once cooled. 

3. Ham Flapjack

You will need... one medium egg, enough oats to make the mixture stiff (a similar consistency to flapjack) and a few slices of ham, although any lunch meat would work. To make... wish egg in a dish, add in ham and mix, then add enough oats to make a relatively stiff consistency. Had they have worked so well I would have weighed them. I then spooned into a tray and put them into a preheated oven for around 20 minutes. Once out of the oven I marked with a knife into squares and left to cool. (Just like you do with flapjacks). 

Really simple and went down a treat!

This is Freddie's I'm cute, feed me or rub my belly pose.

Lots of woof,

  1. Mmm they look delicious. Hopefully some of my friends will pop by for a look too!

  2. Oh dear, Ben was reading over my shoulder and now I need to make some. Mind you I quite fancy the fruit ones myself.

    1. i hope he enjoys them as much as Freddie did if you do. I thought that about the banana and peanut butter ones :)

  3. I'll have to try those for Smudge.

    1. You will have to let us know if he likes them!
