    Went out a trip to Asda earlier and got oatmeal, rye flour, garlic, parsley, peanut butter, honey, cheese and carrots. Made 2 lots with different stuff in them. One being more healthy and the other being more sweet :D First lot was oatmeal, rye flour, garlic, parsley, carrot and some cheese (plus milk and butter) and second lot was oatmeal, rye flour, peanut butter and honey (with milk and butter again). Put them in the oven and took Cheeko out and came back and let them cool then it was time for the taste test. Cheeko can be pretty fussy but he loves them! I made far too much though so I took some down to my neighbours dogs aswell. Told her that the ingrediants are fine for humans to eat so if she wants any for herself she knows where to come :p I put some more in Cheeko's treat ball and now he's sitting infront of the cupboard crying for more! Never known him to like treats with no meat in them plus my cooking can't be too bad either :wink5: The shapes of them aren't very good so didn't take any pictures. Need to get cookie cutters.

    Really I didn't know that about garlic... a doggy friend of mine, gives their dogs a clove of garlic a month, apparently helps to keep mites at bay... don't quote me though...

    Don't worry I didn't use too much garlic only a little bit because I was worried it would make him smell of it! The recipie I took from a website and made the rest up myself by adding the bits in it.

    Wheat-Free Scotty Biscuits
    1 cup oatmeal
    1 cup rye flour
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine
    1/2 cup milk
    Combine oatmeal, 3/4 cup of the rye flour, sugar and butter together. Slowly add the milk till a firm but slightly sticky dough forms. Scrape out dough onto a wooden board or counter. Knead in the rest of the rye flour till the dough stiffens a little. Wrap in saran wrap and chill for one hour.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out dough till 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into shapes ( I like to use scotty dog cutters). Place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn off oven and let biscuits rest till cool in oven with the door closed. Store in air-tight container for up to 2 weeks.



    I cut out the sugar and I've just realised I didn't melt the butter. I put the oatmeal in first then added the extras and carried on from there :) Also didn't leave it in the fridge for anymore than 20 mins for it to chill because it started going hard.

    I hope she likes them. Next time I make them I might add apple or banana. If your going to make the ones with honey and peanut butter I'd advise putting the milk in last because the honey and peanut butter kind of takes place of the milk so you don't need as much. A lesson I learnt too late and ended up with messy hands.
