So the first recipe I am giving a shot is the Apple Molasses Delilghts.
To calculate the cost of making the treats I will just divide the purchase cost of the ingredients by the amount used.
Wheat Flour $0.29
Rolled Oats $0.26
1 Apple $0.49
Vegetable Oil $0.40
The prep time was pretty much the 15 minutes the book estimated if you don't count the distractions from the dogs asking to go in and out. In my oven they were done in 30 minute. I was able to make 28 treats cut in strips sort of like bread sticks. Will post the taste test tomorrow once they have had a chance to cool off.
