We Made Flax and Parmesan Dog Treats!

Hi everyone! Yesterday when we wrote about our FlaxyCat and FlaxyDog giveaway, we promised you a recipe for dog treats using flaxseeds. So here it is! By the way, we found this recipe (and somewhat adapted it for our own attention spans) from DogTreatKitchen.com


First you should turn on your oven to 400 degrees, to get it preheated. 


Here are your ingredients: Flax Seeds (We're using some of our FlaxyDog, of course!), water, and Parmesan Cheese. You will also need a baking tray, parchment paper, and an oven. And something to mix the dough with, like a spoon.


Mix 1 CUP of Flaxseeds with 1/2 CUP of Water. Add about 1/2 A CUP of Parmesan cheese. Mix it and knead it until it resembles dough. Mama forgot to take a picture of this, so use your imagination! 


Place a piece of parchment paper onto a baking tray. Set the dough on top of the paper. 


Cover this with a second piece of parchment paper. You can actually roll the dough while it is between the two sheets of parchment paper, if you want to avoid making a mess! If you don't have a rolling pin, you can use a jar of peanut butter. Thats what our Mama did! 


Pop the whole thing into the oven! 


Its now time to wait impatiently in front of the oven for 15 whole minutes! 


Finally, take the batch out of the oven! You can cut or tear into pieces that are just the right sizes for the dogs in your house. And don't forget to label them DOG TREATS so the humans don't steal them! (We did find the exact same recipe on a HUMAN health food site, so... the humans might really try to steal these! 


Remember to enter our giveaway if you'd like to win some FlaxyDog or FlaxyCat for yourselves! The deadline is next Friday, March 4, at 3:00 pm Central. Good luck! 


PS. We have an EMERGENCY BLOGATHON coming up starting on March 5 to raise money for an Almost Home dog named Apollo who needs expensive medical treatment. We're going to be raffling off lots of great items during those ten days. Each raffle entry will be $1.00 (so if you donated $10.00, you could enter ten times, either spending ten tickets on one item or spreading them out throughout the ten days!) We have some great companies donating things, PLUS our Mama has come up with a few creative things to raffle off too... so please save the date! :)

That looks like a nice simple recipe. Just saw the comment above. I've been having problems tonight too :(

Have I missed St Patties again?

Good day to you my friend. I needed to give you a quick note to express my thanks. I've been studying your blog for a month or so and have picked up quite a lot of good info as well as enjoyed the way in which you've setup your blog. I am attempting to setup my own blog but I feel it is too general. I want to focus more on specific topics. Being all things to all folks isn't all that it’s cracked up to be. Many thanks.
