OOH, i'm so happy to hear your dog loved them too! and lol, the cat too! ha ha!
Yeah, i do sometimes swap out the ingredients, using whatever
and green veggie
i have on hand that day
i only add in the veggies to cut the calories down from the liver i usually
use. LIver is loaded with calories, but, liver is my dog's favorite treat of all time. This way, in a liver cookie
, Buddy *thinks* he is getting pure liver,
but, he's not, hee hee.
I only use the oats to thicken the 'dough' up a bit, and sometimes, IF I DRAIN THE BOILED INGREDIENTS VERY
VERY VERY WELL, i barely need ANY oats at all.
I don't think oats and wheat are same thing at all. Completely different plants, for starters.
Oats have different nutrients and no allergens
. (some dogs ARE allergic to wheat and will
scratch at their skin after eating wheat treats).
I don't think oats and flour are quite the same thing, either, oats have fiber, flour doesn't, for one thing. And the nutrients are slightly different from each other. But yeah, i imagine rice flour is superior to reg flour. But, the recipe really needs NO flour at all, dogs dont' need flour at all.
Sounds like a great variation, VERY CLEVER!! i will have to try some gizzards next time!!!
but, that IS a lot of flour
you add in, though. I bet you can probably reduce the flour if you drain the ingredients SUPER well.
cuz This recipe really needs zero
flour at all.
Mine have zero flour at all, just a dab of oats
--just enuff to thicken it up
for making "cookies", and like i said, IF i DRAIN the ingredients REEEALLY REALLY well,
i barely need any
sometimes, it is a bit runny-ish, so i DO need some oats then
. I don't need a food processor either, ordinary beaters will
do for anyone reading along, for dog cookies, if you have no processor. PLus, that way, your dog can show you
HOW GREAT HE IS at cleaning up dishes and beaters, til they are SPOTLESS! rofl!!
SO GLAD YOUR DOGS ARE
LIKING THE TREATS!
THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW! Your dog sounds so funny, ha ha, what a character!
