I found out that my squirrels love these meatballs too. I cut them in 1/2 and set them on my deck railings. The little fellas look so cute munching on the meatballs.
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter, Xylitol free
- 1 15oz can 100% pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling
- 1/3 cup honey
- 5 cups oats
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
IMPORTANT TIP! Make sure that your peanut butter does not have XYLITOL in the ingredient list as it is TOXIC to dogs. If you want to be extra cautious use organic peanut butter for your furry baby.
You will need a large cookie sheet, wax paper, cookie dough scoop and a large mixing bowl for this recipe. I was lucky enough to find a large bag of Steel cut oats at my local wholesale food club.
Add all of the above ingredients into a large bowl and mix well until all is blended in and oats are covered.
Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper, then scoop out meatballs with a cookie dough scoop onto your hand. Roll each one into a ball and place onto cookie sheet until all are rolled. It about makes 54 meatballs.
Now place cookie sheet into the refrigerator for about 1 hour, then come back and transfer them into a air tight container separating each layer with a sheet of wax paper.
They will keep for 3 weeks refrigerated or up to 3 months in the freezer. How cool is that!
I found the large bag of oats above at my local wholesale food club. I love a bargain because that is how I roll.
