April Showers Bring May Flowers:

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (optional, for color)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350Β°F (175Β°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, rolled oats, cinnamon, and baking powder. Mix well to ensure even distribution of the dry ingredients.
  3. In a separate microwave-safe bowl, melt the coconut oil in the microwave until it becomes liquid. Allow it to cool slightly.
  4. Add the melted coconut oil, unsweetened applesauce, honey, and water to the dry ingredients. Mix until a dough forms. If the dough seems too dry, you can add a little more water, one tablespoon at a time, until it reaches the right consistency.
  5. Once the dough is well mixed, transfer it to a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness.
  6. Using a daisy-shaped cookie cutter (or any other shape you prefer), cut out shapes from the dough and place them onto the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Bake the treats in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown and firm to the touch.
  8. Once baked, remove the treats from the oven and allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.
  9. Once cooled, these delightful Raindrop Dog Treats are ready to be served to your furry friend! Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week, or in the refrigerator for longer shelf life.

If you want to add icing – follow this simple recipe

  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Food coloring (optional, use dog-safe colors or natural alternatives like beet juice or turmeric)
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the corn starch and water over medium heat. Stir continuously to prevent lumps from forming.
  2. Cook the mixture until it thickens and becomes translucent, stirring constantly. This should take about 2-3 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
  3. Allow the corn starch mixture to cool slightly, but not completely. It should still be warm and pourable.
  4. Once the mixture has cooled slightly, stir in the honey until it is well incorporated. The honey will add flavor and help to create a smooth consistency.
  5. If you’d like to add color to your icing, now is the time to do so. Add a few drops of food coloring and mix until the desired color is achieved. Be sure to use dog-safe colors or natural alternatives like beet juice or turmeric.
  6. Once the icing is smooth and well mixed, it’s ready to be applied to your cooled dog treats. You can use a spoon or a spatula to spread it onto the treats, or dip them directly into the icing for a thicker coating.
  7. Allow the icing to set before serving the treats to your pup. This can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the thickness of the icing and the temperature of your kitchen.
  8. Once the icing has set, your homemade dog treats are ready to be enjoyed by your furry friend! Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
