  4. Denise  July 3, 2016

    How long is the shelf life if you keep them in a closed container?
    Thank you!
    Eager to try these tasty treats!!!

    • Gale Compton  July 3, 2016

      Denise, Up to one week if the temperature in your house isn’t too warm. 🙂

      • Ange  July 13, 2016

        If stored in a fridge, would they only be good for that long?

        • Gale Compton  July 14, 2016

          Ange, Sure, should last up to two weeks in the fridge. Refrigerating may take away some of the crunchiness. 🙂

  5. Karen Mitchell  August 16, 2016

    I’ve been sitting here ages trying to work out which ones are the super foods… I wouldn’t class these as super

    • Gale Compton  August 17, 2016

      Karen, All 6 ingredients are considered superfoods. 🙂

  6. Bunny Ryan  November 15, 2016

    Wondered if I use oat flour instead of oats, what would be the substitution amount?

    • Gale Compton  November 15, 2016

      Bunny, The same amount, 2 cups oat flour. 🙂

  7. Jan  December 16, 2016

    Do you have the fat content? Our little one had pancreatitus and can only do less that 8% crude fat.

    • Gale Compton  December 29, 2016

      Hi Lisa, I’m sorry we don’t. There are tons of online sites you could plug in the ingredients to get the fat. 🙂

  10. Sofia  January 6, 2017

    Would any other flour work for these? My yorkie is allergic to Oats and Rice..Maybe coconut flour?

    • Gale Compton  January 7, 2017

      Sofia, Coconut flour should be fine. Let us know how your yorkie likes them. 🙂

  11. Rena  February 13, 2017

    Sounds great going to try this.

  12. Rita  February 19, 2017

    I have just made them and it was a big hit with our dogs.Thank you so much. I added some pumpkin instead of carrots.

  13. Joyce  April 29, 2017

    I would like to know how you print the recipe with out getting all the ads.

    • Emilia Horn  April 29, 2017

      Joyce, try copying and pasting it into a Word document.

      • Virginia  February 2, 2020

        I am anxious to try this recipe. The vet won’t put my dog to sleep to clean her teeth . So I hope this will help her breathe.

        • Nichole Furlong  February 2, 2020

          We hope you enjoy the recipe, Virginia! Let us know how it turns out!

  14. Vic  May 22, 2017

    Does anyone know if you can freeze these? 🙂

    • Emilia Horn  May 23, 2017

      You should be able to freeze them Vic, but the texture might then be different.

      • Tina Krenz  August 10, 2017

        I have a sealer that I just love to death, and I seal a lot of things, like chips, popcorn, but of course I watch just far I will let it go on my chips, and then stop the air part, and seal it. So me, I probably would seal mine, and put in the freezer, that way it won’t get freezer burn or go bad, and it can last a lot longer. It’s also how I do all my fruit all my fruits for my smoothies too so that when I’m ready to make them, they’re still not freezer burned, and the flavor is still good.

  15. Linda  July 25, 2017

    do you know how long they can be stored?

    • Gale Compton  July 26, 2017

      Linda, I like to store them in a freezer ziplock baggie and take one out to thaw, usually one a day. 🙂

  16. Nayeli  August 11, 2017

    What if I use 1 cup of whole grain flour and 1 cup of the oats?… would that work?…

    • Gale Compton  August 12, 2017

      That’s fine if you’re dog doesn’t have any wheat allergies. YUM! 🙂

  17. doris  March 12, 2018

    How many calories is this per treat?

    • Gale Compton  March 12, 2018

    Ok i made these. I didnt have parsley. Sticky and dry hard to work with, so i made them like peanutbutter cookies. Press on parchment paper with a fork. Not pretty, but my 2 little long haired chihuahuas ate a warm one fast. They are habie approved in my house. I might add a touch of peanutbutter next time. I ate one bland but tasty. Lol

    • Nichole Furlong  March 25, 2019

      We’re glad to hear your pups loved the treats!
