Today’s Dog Treat Cookie Recipe

SPINACH AND RICOTTA CHEESE COOKIES
Did you know?
Spinach adds roughage as well as needed antioxidants, amino acids, and iron. Spinach contains high levels of the vitamin K which helps maintain good bone health and growth as well as A, B2, C, manganese, magnesium, folic acid, and calcium.
Ricotta Cheese is low fat, low sodium and rich in vitamins and minerals, with substantial amounts of calcium, vitamin A and vitamin B12. Surprisingly, ricotta cheese is even lower in fat than cottage cheese too.

SPINACH AND RICOTTA CHEESE COOKIES
3½ cups oat flour – see handy tip
1 cup ricotta cheese
½ cup frozen spinach – thawed
1 egg
½ cup lactose free milk (or water)
Preheat oven to 180° C (350° F) and line large cookie tray with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk the egg, spinach and milk together.
(Or use a blender/vita mixer for this process, then pour green liquid into bowl).
Add flour and ricotta cheese to bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.
Turn out on to lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, (around a minute).
Roll dough out to about ½ inch thickness, and using a cookie cutter of your choice, or a sharp knife, cut out shapes and place on cookie tray about ⅛ inch apart.
Repeat the process of knead, roll, cut out and place, until all dough is used.
You can use fork tines to press lightly into each cookie, if you like.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until firm and the edges are golden brown.
Remove from oven and place cookies on wire cooling rack to cool.
Yield about 48 small – medium cookies (depending on size of cutter and dough thickness).
Storage, Refrigeration and Freezing Instructions:
Store in zip lock bags or air tight containers in your refrigerator.
Home baked treats contain no preservatives, so they can mold or spoil the same as home baked people cookies. Other variables, ingredients/moisture content of the treat and climate conditions also determine storage time.
Refrigeration will prolong the life of home-made dog treats.
Freeze for up to 4 months – Allow to thaw completely before feeding.

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 SPINACH AND RICOTTA CHEESE COOKIES as a treat only.
Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pets diet.
As with any treat, always provide fresh water after feeding.
