Do you get tired of preparing your dogs food every day? Here is a way you can prepare the food ahead of time and keep it in the freezer until you need it.
I found this great recipe in Natural Dog magazine. This is actually a muffin recipe. Muffins are a great way to prepare and store meals, especially for small breed dogs. If you want to make these for dog snacks instead of dog food use mini muffin pans but make sure to adjust the baking time. The baking time for mini muffins will be about half the time of the regular muffins.
You can use this in many different ways. Use the muffins for a meal, a snack or crumble them over dog food for an extra treat. Bake a couple dozen, freeze them and defrost as needed. That is so convenient and works well when you travel too. Just keep your pet’s food in the cooler with your own stuff. The ingredients are not expensive and are easy too find.
– Oat and Chicken Muffins
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups oats
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup olive oil
3 beaten eggs (shells optional; you can put whole eggs with shells in blender – egg shells have a lot of calcium)
2 1/2 cups yogurt or buttermilk
1 cup grated cooked chicken
Mix together oats, flour and baking soda. Blend the olive oil, yogurt or buttermilk, and eggs. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir in the grated chicken. Pour into oiled muffin tins and bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out dry. Yields 12 medium-size muffins. Extra muffins can be frozen for six weeks.
