Recipe of the Week :: GRRRRRRRanola

March 19, 2015


Isn't it funny how a dog loves honey? Nutty, all natural, mixed flavors for your nutty, all-natural, mixed breed (or pedigree!).


Keep in mind, these weekly recipes are not only all natural, but they are perfect bites for you and the dog in your life to share (just use separate bowls!).


Ingredients checklist:


  • 3/4 cup honey

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 2 cups cracked wheat

  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats

  • 2 cups bran flakes

  • 1 cup wheat germ

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds

  • 1 cup chopped roasted soybeans


Feeling healthy already! The recipe makes a Grrrrreat Dane-sized portion.


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

  2. Heat honey, oil, and vanilla in a saucepan.

  3. Pour over all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix thoroughly and spread on two greased baking sheets.

  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until nicely golden brown. Stir occasionally during baking to prevent overbrowning.

  5. Cool and store in a sealed container.


Grrrrrreat job! I'm sure your pup will agree.
