Coconut Clusters (for Dogs)
This is an easy to make treat for your treasured pooches. It is especially easy because it involves no baking. Just mix the ingredients and form into bite-sized snacks!
3 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup low-fat milk or 1/4 cup nonfat milk
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup applesauce, milk, and coconut. Slowly add in the oats, 1/2 cup at a time; you should get a mixture that sticks together when you squeeze a small amount in your hand (if not, add the additional tablespoon of applesauce).
Use a cookie scooper to scoop about one tablespoon of mixture, then using wet hands, form into a ball or disk shape, and place on a prepared baking sheet.
Refrigerate at least one hour.
Keeps up to 2 weeks, refrigerated, or up to 3 months, frozen.
