Baby Cake Treats

This is a personal favorite recipe from Logan, Brodie and Moira.  Is is so easy to make and the taste is yummy!  I discovered this several years ago when time was at a premium and finding the hours to cook for the collies was very difficult.  After consulting our vet, I came away with an extensive list of "preferred" ingredients and a few great ideas on how to streamline the process of making dog treats.  

One of the best ingredients, and one of the most popular, as it turned out, was wheat germ.  Not only is it an abundant source of vitamin E, its nutty flavor makes it irresistible to your furry family.  When we first started making these miniature cakes, jars of organic baby food were a challenge to find. Now, it's as easy as going to your mainstream market or local grocer.  We use everything from apricots to junior meal varieties to make these easy treat cakes.

This recipe uses only two ingredients, but has endless variations!

Baby Cakes
  • 1 Cup organic wheat germ
  • 2 small jars organic baby food
Preheat over to 350 degrees.  Spray baking sheet with olive oil, or use precut parchment liner. Mix all the ingredients and roll into 1-inch balls.  Place on baking sheet and press each ball with a fork.  Bake about 30 minutes until golden brown.  Cool.

Bone appetit!
