We got our first “snow” of the season today.I know you that live in the more northern states are laughing at me by now We don’t see a lot of snow here in Tennessee very often so we take what we can get. Waking up to our dusting this morning put my dogs in a frenzy. They are very spoiled little dachshunds and they don’t like the cold temps. I tend to spoil them a bit.
They love to be snuggled up on their heated throw and they dare you to move them. They are the funniest little creatures. They are my fur babies and just like any mom I like to spoil them. I have been known to give them special meals quite often. I will chop up carrots and peas and throw them into their dogfood with some vegetable broth.They are happy little campers.They love carrots , apples and countless other pieces of veggies that may drop on the floor during my cooking sessions How could you resist that face ?
They were my inspiration today for my baking experiment. I wanted to make a little doggy snack for them. Just because I’m easing up a bit on the baked goods I have to channel my energy on other things
Apple Carrot Nibbles
1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 large apple (minced)
1/2 cup carrot (chopped)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup water
Pre -heat oven to 350
I chopped the apple and carrot in processor until nicely chopped.
In large bowl mix flour,oats,cinnamon and add to mixture apple,carrot,maple syrup,and water until mixture forms a dough.
Scoop out small mounds onto greased cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes and flip over and bake for another 10 minutes.
They were jumping for joy
I even had a little nibble myself and they were not too bad. I think the neighborhood dogs may get an early Christmas gift from their neighbors Buck & Chuck.
