Servings: 43
Author: Wild Wild Whisk
Ingredients
  • 1 cup chopped strawberry - pureed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup freeze dried strawberry
  • 2 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • Extra flour for rolling
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Ground approximately 8 oz of rolled oats in a food processor until coarse flour forms. This will yield just about 2 cups.
  3. Break up the freeze dried strawberries with your hand into tiny pieces and mix with the oat flour. Set aside.
  4. Wash and hull the fresh strawberries, chop and measure 1 cup, puree in a food processor, this will yield approximately 1/2 cup.
  5. Add pureed strawberries, egg, 1 tablespoon of honey to a medium mixing bowl. Mix with a whisk until smooth.
  6. Add oat flour with freeze dried strawberries to the mixture. Use a spatula or mixing spoon to combine.
  7. At this point, the dough will be slightly wet. Incorporate whole wheat flour, a little at a time up to 1/4 cup, until the dough is dry enough to handle.
  8. Sprinkle some more flour on a cutting board or counter and turn the dough out, knead and shape into a disk.
  9. Roll dough out to about 1/4" thick. Cut out shapes with cookie cutter large enough for your dog, and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet about 1/2” apart.
  10. Reshape scraps and roll out again to 1/4” thick and continue cutting out treats until finished.
  11. Dip the cookie cutter in some flour each time you cut so the cutter doesn’t get sticky.
  12. Bake for 50 minutes to an hour, flip treats upside down and rotate pan half way through baking time so they can brown evenly.
  13. Remove baking pan from oven and let cool on a cooling rack.
Recipe Notes

1. I used a 1.5” heart shape cookie cutter and a 2” bone shape cookie cutter for this recipe and it yielded 43 treats combined.
2. Store in an airtight container. If the treats are baked until they really dry out, they could last at room temperature for a week plus. By this time, these will be all gone at my house. But you can always store them in the fridge for longer.
3. If you don’t want to use whole wheat flour, substitute with more oat flour. You may need to add a lot more than 1/4 cup, until the dough is dry enough to handle.
