Pumpkin Oat Squares Homemade Pet Treats

No more store bought treats for the parrots (or the dogs)! It’s easy to make them yourself at home. This way you know exactly what’s in them; and they are free of salt, sugar, chemicals and preservatives. These Pumpkin Oat Squares are baked fresh with cinnamon, flax, broccoli and carrots.

Ingredients:
2 cups whole oats (not quick oats)
1 cup (freshly ground) flax seed
1 cup of pureed pumpkin (canned or fresh)
2 cups of minced carrots and broccoli (quick and easy with food processor)
1 egg (optional, you can always use wet flax seed as a healthy substitute)
a dash of cinnamon (use true ceylon cinnamon to be pet safe)

Mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately first, then combine them altogether. I smear a small dab of organic coconut oil on the bottom of a large shallow baking dish. Pack the mixture down flat and evenly into the baking dish. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Cool, then cut into little treat sized squares. Freeze them so they stay fresh.
