There is no shortage of squirrels in my garden. I admit that I send the dogs to the yard to chase them away from digging up my crocus bulbs and strawberry plants. Then I scold them for running after creatures on our walks. It’s confusing and not all that nice (sorry pups!) so I decided to make it up to them by baking them some squirrels that they can actually catch, and that taste delicious.


Makes approximately 48 squirrels
• 2 cups rolled oats
• 3 cups whole wheat flour
• 3 eggs
• 1 cup low sodium beef stock
• Cinnamon
• Crunchy bits from leftover cookies, crushed kibble, or bacon bits (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees C.

Grind rolled oats in a food processor until you get a course flour. Add all ingredients except the crunchies to a large bowl and mix until combined. It may be easier to use your hands to mix this stiff dough.

I like to add something with a different flavour kneaded into the dough at the end but it isn’t necessary. You can use the crumbs leftover in the pooch’s cookie jar or kibble bag, or even some bacon bits. They would LOVE that, right?

Form a ball with the dough and roll out on a floured surface to 1/2″ thick. Use a cookie cutter to make cookies shaped like squirrels, bones, or whatever you choose. Bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet for 30 minutes.

Cool and they are ready to treat the pups for protecting the garden. Or package them up for your furry one’s pals . They will be a welcome treat for any canine family members!
