Soft Oatmeal Cookies (for Dogs)

      Soft Oatmeal Cookies
      Here's a nice soft cookie for senior dogs with more sensitive mouths or dogs who have just returned home after a dental cleaning. With two sources of apples and sweetness from blackstrap molasses, these cookies are full of flavor and vitamins, plus they have a healthy dose of fiber to keep your pup full between meals.

      Nonstick cooking spray
      1 egg
      1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
      2 tablespoons canola oil
      2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
      1 cup whole wheat flour
      1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
      1 teaspoon baking powder
      1 red apple (Braeburn or red Rome),
      cored and finely chopped
      Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a baking sheet with
      cooking spray.
      Combine the egg, applesauce, canola oil, and
      molasses in a large bowl and stir to blend.
      Add the flour, oats, baking powder, and apple to the
      egg mixture and stir with a spoon until well blended.
      Using two spoons, scoop up 1 tablespoon of cookie
      dough and use the second spoon to scrape the dough
      onto the prepared baking sheet. Place the cookies 1
      inch apart.
      Bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer
      the cookies to a wire rack and allow them to cool for
      20 minutes.
      Because these are soft cookies, store in the refrigerator
      for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
