    Wow! these are sooo delish! #loved. Couldn’t save any for the dog as i just gobbled them all up! Might replace some of the oats for raw dog food next time so they’ll have some more flavour. Yum!

    1. That’s funny Jamie! We gave our neighbor some homemade dog cookies and he ate them all too. That’s okay though, glad you enjoyed them.
