These treats are paws down the dachshunds favorite treats so far! In fact they were so good that I turned around to find that Hazel had jumped up on the kitchen counter searching for more after I took her picture. Seriously, that good...and the best part is that they are incredibly easy.
The recipe is adapted from Pretty Fluffy's No Bake Healthy Treats and you can whip these yummy snacks up in less than 10 minutes. So quick and easy that you can make a batch any time, no reason to run to the store for more. Here's the recipe:
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 cup of peanut butter (you may need a tablespoon or so extra)
- 3 cups of rolled oats
- 1/2 cup of dried cranberries
Mix the 1/2 cup of milk and peanut butter until a paste forms. Add 1/2 cup of rolled oats at a time until thoroughly mixed. If it still a bit dry add a tablespoon more of peanut butter. Then add in your cranberries.
You can either form them into nice little balls like Pretty Fluffy does or press them into one of those flexible molds like I did for nice compact squares. Finally, put them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until they are a bit harder. Pack them up for training or keep them in the fridge for a special treat!
Here is Hazel enjoying every minute of her treat and even going back for seconds...thirds...crumbs! Even after jumping on the counter she tried to get back up by climbing on a step stool to jump back up onto the counter! They are that good! Try it! (as always, check with your veterinarian if your dog has allergies or special dietary needs before feeding these treats)
