Power Packed Snack!!!
I always get inspired going to a pet store and reading the ingredients on the back of those enticing snacks! Most of the time I am just shaking my head, the first ingredient is flour and then one fruit and then stuff you can not pronounce and why do they always add salt to the food? I NEVER EVER add salt; my food taste good because of the wholesome ingredients I add.
2 cups of uncooked oats
1 teaspoon of pumpkin seeds (ground up)*
1 teaspoon of blueberry flax seed (ground up)*
2 cooked beets (I buy at Costco)
2 teaspoons of powdered peanut butter (can substitute regular peanut butter)
2 teaspoons extra virgin coconut oil
1/3 cup blueberries
1 shredded apple (skin removed)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of turmeric
Place oats in food processor and mix until it resembles flour. Add all other ingredients. Get a small tray (like the size of a toaster oven tray) and place foil on the tray and spray with oil. Pour mixture onto tray and bake for 25 minutes at 375 degrees.
I like my treats like a soft cookie. After they cool, I cut up and place a few in the refrigerator and the rest in the freezer.
*I get the pumpkin seeds and flax seeds and blend them in my Vitamix together and place in a freezer container. Whenever I need any, I just grab from freezer. You don't want to keep pumpkin seeds out or they can get rancid. Freezer is great and they do not solidify because of the oils.
