Bacon Flapjacks

They’re mainly made of oats, which are one of the best sources of carbohydrates for your dog, as they’re high in essential fatty acids, protein and minerals, including the all-important calcium.

You will need:

• 100g margarine

• 125g porridge oats

• 50g self-raising flour

• 2 tablespoons cornflour

• 1 teaspoon mustard

• 2 tablespoons olive oil

• 2 rashers bacon




1.  Fry the bacon until crispy and, when cool, cut into little pieces. Keep the oil from the pan to hand.

2.  Meanwhile, mix together the margarine, oats and flour and cornflour in a large bowl. Add in the mustard, chopped bacon and olive oil, mix thoroughly and then press into a greased baking tray.

3.  Drizzle the fat leftover in the frying pan over the mixture before putting it into a hot oven (190℃ Gas mark 5) for 20 minutes.


Be cautious about offering this to your dog if he’s having trouble with his weight, and in general, it’s definitely a recipe to cook, store, and give in small amounts.
