3 Ingredient Pomegranate Dog Treats
Yield 36 cookies
If you can't bear to part with an entire delicious pomegranate, you can use half a pomegranate, and replace the other half with 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce or pumpkin puree.
- 1 pomegranate, seeded (about 1 1/2 cups of seeds)
- 2 cups oat flour (pulverize rolled oats in a food processor to make yourself)
- 2 eggs
- OPTIONAL: A dab of red natural food coloring to zazz up the color
- OPTIONAL: Some dried pomegranate seeds for a chunky look
- OPTIONAL: Fido's Icing for a royal icing effect
You may need to add some additional flour if your pomegranate was a biggie to get a workable dough, so have some extra on hand just in case.
Preheat oven to 350º
Wash and quarter the pomegranate, and pick seeds out right into the food processor bowl. We wash the pomegranate to prevent the knife from carrying any surface contaminants through the clean seeds inside.
Blend the seeds until thoroughly pulverized.
Add the oats and pulse to combine.
Add the eggs and pulse to combine.
Add more flour as necessary to get a workable dough.
Turn out onto work surface and roll to an even 1/4 inch thickness.
Cut out and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until just browned around the edges.
You can turn off the oven and leave cookies inside to cool slowly for a crunchier cookie.
Follow package directions for icing, and wait until your cookies are completely cool before getting crafty.
The icing will take 8-24 hours to dry completely.
