Molasses Carrot Cookies

First, let me say that the picture was taken on our trip to South Carolina. Montana and I climbed up to the observation tower at a Wildlife Preserve, and we were very proud of ourselves. When climbing stairs I have to go up (and down) one step at a time, getting both feet on the same step before I can go up another one. Montana goes at the same pace, staying right beside me in case I stumble or lose my balance. He is one amazing dog, and I thank my lucky stars that he is mine.

I bought a box of fancy dog biscuits during our trip and got to reading the ingredients. Then, I made a batch of my own today using those ingredients plus my usual dog cookie ingredients. They got raves from Montana, and they sure smelled good to me!

Molasses Carrot Cookies

(Preheat oven to 350 degrees)

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 1/2 cup cornmeal

  • 2 grated carrots

  • 6 Tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1 cup Old Fashioned oatmeal

  • 1/3 cup molasses

  • 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese

Mix all ingredients together. Shape into balls and squash as for cookies. Bake 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool and serve. I break these into pieces and serve as I would regular dog food, along with things like sardines, boneless canned salmon, broccoli, chopped canned spinach, etc.
