Homemade oatmeal cookies for toddlers and a doggy version too!

The reasons I love these cookies are because they are dairy free/refined sugar free but also because you can give it to them for breakfast and you can sit down on the sofa while they munch away! Saying that, you may have to clean up the crumbs after and the toddler recipe does contain raisins so ensure your doggy is not around to eat them up for you, if you really want, don’t put the raisins in and then get your clean up buddy to help out. Also it’s super easy!

Toddler oatmeal recipe
Ingredients

120 g whole wheat flour
120g rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
half a grated carrot
1 red grated apple
handful of raisins or sultanas
(around) 8 tbsp of coconut oil (or olive oil)
(around) 4 tbsp of honey (or maple syrup)

Method
Heat oven to 180c and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well with a big spoon (or your hands). Form into balls of the size you wish and place them on parchment paper. Flatten them with a wooden spoon or your hand slightly. Cook in oven for 20-25 mins, I turn them over over halfway so that they are golden on both sides.

Doggy Version!

These baked dog treats include only 3 ingredients, they are even quicker and easier than the above.

Ingredients:

120g rolled oats
1 medium banana
1 tbsp peanut butter

Method:

Blitz oats in blender to make oat flour, add in other ingredients and pulse to make dough. Roll out on a bit of whole wheat flour, make whatever shapes you desire using cookie cutter or knife and bake on greaseproof paper for 25-30 mins until golden and baked.

Voila! A happy child and dog
