Don’t you think these little oaty biscuits look great? I’m sure they taste wonderful too, if you’re a dog!
Yes, these lovely little snacks are actually dog treats. They are super easy and made according to a recipe given to me by my friend Jo who used to bake all different kinds of treats and sell them to dog walkers outside her house in Wales.
They are so so easy to make, as there are only two ingredients; porridge oats and baby food!
My dog loves them so I’m sure yours will too (if you have one… If not, this is probably not the recipe for you!) There are so many different varieties of baby food out there I’m sure your dog will never get bored of them. I think you could also use the same quantity of blended leftovers if you had some and didn’t want to buy baby food.
Easy Oaty Dog Treats
So simple, I’m almost ashamed to call this a recipe!
- 2 jars baby food
- 2 cups porridge oats
1. Preheat oven to 170ºC.2. Mix the baby food and oats together in a bowl until well combined.3. Taking a heaped teaspoon of the mixture, roll into a ball then flatten onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Repeat until all the ingredients have been used.4. Bake for 25mins, then turn off the oven. Leave the treats in the oven until it is completely cool. This will dry them out and ensure they are extra crunchy.

P.S. I have NO IDEA why I decided to use a plate, napkin and pastry fork in these photographs.... My dog, whilst very clever, does not use these utensils in order to eat the treats!
