Vegan Banana Flax Dog Treats

I started making these treats for my daughter’s puppy, our grandpuppy Kashew. He is a long haired mini dachshund and the love of my life. 🙂 Once terrified of any dog, he transformed me into a dog lover. He loves to eat, and I love to feed him – a match made in doggie heaven! But I try to give him healthy snacks – mostly fresh vegetables and fruits, and these treats that are made with whole wheat flour, oats, bananas, and flaxmeal. He loves them!

Oats Idli

Srilatha Breakfast, Snacks And Light meals, South Indian Leave a Comment

Oats are good for you. Let’s just accept that. But one could get tired of eating oats only as a porridgy thing. I needed to find ways to incorporate oats in our meals without getting bored of it. Tried oats dosa – did not like it. Tried it instead of rice with rasam and yogurt. Meh. Rasam was alright, but didn’t care for it with sambar or yogurt. Tried idlis. And…we had a winner! Technically, this is oats rava idli as I add a litlte bit of rava (1 part rava to 3 parts oats so there’s definitely more oats). This is a quick recipe, and with the right chutney/podi, will definitely satisfy your idli craving as well – and there’s no need to soak, grind, ferment, etc. On to the recipe now!
