Apple Cinnamon Training Bits
With apples in season, especially our favorite Granny Smith apples because they’re one of the lowest in sweetness, here’s a really easy recipe that is sure to please your pup-in-training or anytime! Since apples are plentiful this time of the year, why not make a few extra batches and freeze them for the upcoming winter! Go ahead and try one yourself and let us know what you think!
4 cups whole wheat flour (or substitute)
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small apple (grated)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1-1/3 cups of water
Preheat oven to 325. In a bowl combine all ingredients except the apple and water. Grate apple into mixture and add water. Mix until it starts forming together. Turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead well.
Roll out to a thickness of 1/4 – inch to 1/2 – inch. Take a straight edge and score the dough horizontally then vertically to make a grid of 3/4 inch squares. Be careful not to score the dough that it completely cuts through the dough. Place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with a nonstick spray.
Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Should make about 1-1/2 pounds.
REMEMBER to either refrigerate or freeze all natural treats to avoid spoilage and insect infestation.
