Throw Me a Bone

1 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup pecans, chopped 1/4 cup wheat germ 1/2 cup sunflower seeds 1 cup bran flakes 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 tablespoon fish, flaxseed or olive oil 1 tablespoon honey

(optional) 1/4 cup dried cranberries 1/4 cup dried blueberries 1/4 cup grated carrots

Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. When it is hot, add the oats and pecans and cook, stirring constantly. Until they just begin to turn golden, about 5 minutes. Add the wheat germ, sunflower seeds and bran flakes and continue cooking for another 10 minutes. Drizzle with the vanilla, oil and honey. Mix gently. Set aside to cool. Add the cranberries (cover and refrigerate up to one week). Add the blueberries and carrots, if using, just before serving.

Paw-mesan Tail Twisters

2 cups whole-wheat flour 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal 1 large egg (add shell if desired) 3/4 cup skim milk or water 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the four, cornmeal, egg, milk and 1/4 cup of the cheese in a bowl and mix well, kneading with your hands. Place the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese on a plate. Using your hands, tear off tablespoon-size pieces of dough and form into small logs. Roll the logs in the Parmesan, then twist. Place twists on the baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes. Set aside to cool. Place in an airtight container and store up to 2 weeks.

Devil Dog Carob Brownies

Vegetable oil, to grease the pan 1/2 cup vegetable shortening 3 tablespoons honey 4 large eggs 4 egg shells, ground 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup whole-wheat flour 1/4 cup carob powder 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 cup chopped nuts

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch pan. Mix the shortening and honey in a large bowl with a fork until creamy. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes. Set aside to cool. Cut into 24 pieces. Brownies may be individually wrapped and frozen for up to 2 months.
