As soon as the weather starts getting chilly, it is baking season around here. With just four wholesome ingredients, these dog treats are so easy to make!
Although it is a little more complicated than one, two, three, it didn’t take long to make these and clean up afterward!
Clean up is easier with Scotch-Brite™ Brand sponges and dishwands.
The great thing about baking your own treats is you know exactly what is going into them. Because Nelly is sensitive to wheat, I use rice flour, but you can substitute whatever flour you prefer.
- 1 cup rice flour
- 3/4 cup oats
- 1 cup natural applesauce
- 3/4 cup grated carrots
- Optional – peanut butter for frosting
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease muffin pan if desired (recommended for non-stick muffin pans.)
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
- Fill muffin pans to desired height. (This batter does not rise upon baking.)
- Bake 15-20 minutes.
- If desired, let cool and then frost with peanut butter and top with grated carrots.
- Use within a few days or freeze since they are preservative-free.
They may not be the prettiest pupcakes, but Darla was excited to try them!
I added some peanut butter frosting and a few grated carrots to make them fancier.
A few months ago, our dishwasher just stopped working. After looking at our budget, and our smaller household, I decided to forego replacing the dishwasher at this time. However, I sometimes choose what to make for dinner based on the number of dishes, pots, and pans I’m likely to use.
While I love to bake, I don’t like to clean the kitchen.
One of the things I’ve discovered that makes clean up easier is having the right tools for the job. The blue Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Sponge is an excellent choice for my non-stick pans and copper bowls. These sponges don’t scratch, but help cut down on the scrubbing time.
For my other pots and pans, as well as the dog dishes, I use the yellow and green Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Dots sponge. The scrub dot technology helps to clean faster and also lets the sponges rinse clean.
I bought my Scotch-Brite™ Brand products at Target. I found them in the Kitchen Cleaning aisle.
