Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Dog Treats

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Dog Treats

Our dog Grace absolutely loves mealtime and is especially fond of homemade dog treats. I surprised her this weekend with a batch of these apple cinnamon oatmeal dog treats from a recipe I found on Two Little Cavaliers. This recipe looked perfect because I had all of the ingredients on hand. Yay! I was a bit concerned because the dough was very wet so I added an additional 1/2 cup of oats. Because it was still pretty wet, instead of rolling out the dough, I scooped it into the dog treat cutter and flattened it down as best I could with the spoon. It was a messy process and a little bit more time consuming but Grace absolutely LOVES these treats so it was worth the extra effort.

How to Make Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Dog Treats

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place two cups of the quick oats into a blender and pulse four or five times until it’s more like flour. Pour into a mixing bowl. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of quick oats, cinnamon applesauce, and eggs together until well combined. It will still be wet.

Place the dog mold on the parchment-lined baking sheet and scoop batter into the mold evenly while also flattening down with the back of a small spoon. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Side Note: You can also do spoonfuls of batter a couple of inches apart to make cookies.

Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 22-25 minutes or until golden and set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on cooling racks.

    love this recipe Pam ! Im sure my dogs would be happy with these !!

  2. I am going to try this recipe for my dog that looks very similar to your dog Grace. What
    breed(s) is Grace?

    1. Hi Kat,

      We did the dna testing on Grace. She is 50% Staffordshire; 25% Scent Hound; 12.5% Boxer; 12.5% Lab.

      Pam

  3. oooh, sweet grace. she deserves all the treats! 🙂

  4. Grace looks a lot like my son’s dog. Sadie is half beagle (a scent hound) and half Boxer. So I can easily see the scent hound and boxer in Grace. She has a Beagle face like Sadie does!

    Looking forward to making these for Sadie and her sister Sookie. They know Grandma always has toys and treats when they visit!

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I have a Yorkie that is prone to pancreatitis, and to top it off, has many other food intolerances, so I make all of her food. I’m going to try the recipe with egg whites, since she can’t have the fat in regular eggs. I can’t wait to watch her eat them.

    I loved this recipe…simple, healthy, and easy. Of course my lab thought the treats were great!
    Do you have any recipes that do not need refrigeration?

    1. Denene,

      I have always stored mine in the freezer (or fridge) to be on the safe side.

    Yyeaaa!!! I made these today for my Jacob and he loves them! I tasted them too and I agree with him and theyre so simple to make! Thank you!!!!

  8. Hi, thanks for the recipe. I’m interested in trying these. Are these treats hard or chewy? And will baking them for less time make them chewy? My girl is 15 years old with bad teeth.Thank you!

    1. Streetmadonna,

      They will be on the softer side. Start checking on them after 18 minutes. They will harden while they cool but not too much. If you freeze them, just defrost for a bit before serving to your girl so they can soften up. Hope she loves them as much as my Grace does.

      Turned out great! Had to add ALOT more oatmeal because, as u stated, was pretty wet.
      I made a double batch and the third tray I added a little peanut butter-( no nuts-& no xylitol)
      I have dogs at my feet- and staring at me from other room- split one and they gobbled it down!
      Now taking a few to my neighbors dogs! ❤️

    2. Wendy,

      I’m so glad they liked them!

      -Pam

    3. Wendy,

      Thank your groomer for me!

  10. How long do these stay good for in the fridge?

    1. Ashley,

      I store my dog treats in an airtight sealed container in the freezer so they last for months. I think they would only last a few weeks in the refrigerator but I haven’t tried it myself. I hope this helps.

      -Pam
