September Sweet Treat

September Sweet Treat!

My last child just started her first day of her last year in high school!  Every year when school starts, I start my baking.  Today I made a pumpkin coffee cake that is calling my name right now but needs to cool off before I cut into it.  The recipe only called for 1 cup of pumpkin puree so I had an extra cup of pumpkin to do something with, so of course I make something for my babies!

Here is the recipe:

1 1/2 cup of oats
1/2 t ground flax seed
1/2 t ground pumpkin seed
1/2 t cinnamon
4 oz unsweetned applesauce
1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)!
2 teaspoons of melted coconut oil
1 small smashed banana

Put the oats and next three ingredients in food processor and mix until it resembled oat flour.  Add everything else and mix until well incorporated.

Put on a pan that is lined with parchment paper and bake at 375 for aprx 25 minutes.  I do NOT spread the batter too thin because I don't like crunchy treats for my dogs

** all my treats are NOT hard but like a soft cookie because on of my bichons is missing 21 teeth!
