Today’s Dog Treat Cookie Recipe

HAPPY HIP BONES TREAT
Did you know:
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is an extremely effective anti-inflammatory herb, and thus an effective pain reliever. It contains at least two natural chemicals (curcumin and curcuminoids) which are known to decrease inflammation.
Ginger is an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-coagulant plus a carminative (means less flatulence – it’s got to be good). It helps in the absorption of food stuff, helping digestion. It’s also helps boost healthy blood circulation.
Apple Cider Vinegar is loaded with potassium, essential in replacing worn-out tissues within the body, making it beneficial in the treatment of arthritis. It also has excellent antibacterial and antifungal properties that give your dog’s immune system a healthy boost.

HAPPY HIP BONES TREAT
3¾ cups of Oat Flour (see handy tip)
⅓ cup of Organic Peanut Butter
1½ cups of Hot Water
2 tsp. Turmeric
2 tsp. Ginger
1 tsp. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Preheat oven to 180° C or 350° F and line a cookie tray with parchment paper.
Into a bowl place the peanut butter and hot water. Whisk together until combined.
Add flour, turmeric, ginger and apple cider vinegar. Mix until combined.
Turn onto an oat floured surface and with your hands, work the dough, bringing it together and kneading gently until you can form a dough ball.
At this stage you can cut the dough in half and freeze one half for later use if you like.
Roll out the dough to about ¼ inch thickness. The edges may break apart, so missing these edges, cut out shapes with a cookie cutter of your choice.
Place cut outs on cookie tray.
Gather remaining edges and dough scraps; repeat the process from Roll out the dough, until all the dough has been used.
Bake for 30 minutes (depending on your oven).
Turn oven off and leave cookies in oven to dry out completely.
Store in a zip lock bag or air-tight container for around 2 weeks.
Cookies can be frozen for up to 4 months.
One half of the dough yields about 28-30 bones/shapes using small cookie cutters.

Handy tip: Oat Flour can be made by grinding rolled oats in a food processor, blender or vita mixer until it is the consistency of flour.

Feed these HAPPY HIP BONES TREATS as a treat.
Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pet’s diet.
As with any treat, always provide fresh water after feeding.

      Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. It’s really amazing what Turmeric can do and be used for, the benefits were far too many for me to list. I saw something that said “is Turmeric the new wonder ingredient?” It’s definitely one of the ingredients I want to use more of in treats and cookies for the 3m’s. I really appreciate your comments, thanks, Jude and the 3m’s

the 3m's send you ♥ sniffs and thanks for reading & commenting.
