Leo's Lip Licking Littles - Version Two

Leo's Lip Licking Littles Dog Cookie Recipe:

Ingredients:

2 1/2 Cups of oat flour
2       Chicken breasts (hormone free)
1       Apple sauce cup (no sugar added, 4 oz)
1       Bag of frozen green beans (12 oz)
1       Tablespoon Molasses
1/4    Cup chicken broth (low salt) or use broth made by chicken after cooked


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350° F.  Place frozen chicken breasts in covered dish and cook for 80 minutes:


Cut the chicken breasts to make sure the center is fully cooked (not pink) or use a meat thermometer to check temperature.  Inside temperature should be around 170° F when done.  Set chicken aside to cool for  about 5-10 minutes.  While waiting, microwave frozen green beans as per bag's instructions, usually 5-7 minutes.  Set aside to cool.  Place chicken breasts and the chicken broth in food processor until it looks like this:


Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and blend till it looks like this:



Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out into ball shaped cookies on a cookie baking sheet like this:


If you add a little flour to your hand you can shape them into a mini burger shape if you prefer that look. Note below in the photo you can see the burger shaped ones on the right and the others on the left.

Reduce oven temperature to 325° F.  Cook cookies for 32 minutes, then flip and continue cooking for 13 additional minutes.  Turn off oven and leave them in the oven with the door closed for 2 hours.  Take cookies out of oven and let them cool.  The finished product:


Give out samples to your dogs!  Place the remainder of the cookies in an airtight container and place in refrigerator.  If the cookies are too large, you can cut them in half after they are cooked.

Note - use organic ingredients for an even healthier treat!  This is version 2 of this recipe, because the 1st version uses a dehydrator and one of my readers mentioned she didn't want to purchase one and would like an oven alternative recipe.  If you would like to try out the original version, you can read it here.  These version 2 cookies were taste tested by Leo, Teddy (Maltese), Issy & Harvey (Shih-Tzu) with approval.  Leo grabbed his right away, he smelled the chicken, his favorite food!  These are also good to crumble on top of their dry food at dinnertime.  If your dog is being fussy and wont eat his dry food, this is a great way to entice them to eat.  While we are on the subject of dry dog food,  I highly recommend Solid Gold's Hundenflocken.  You can find it at Petco and many pet food stores.  Visit their website to find a store near you.
