The AAFCO Book
For $25, you get a wealth of information. For instance, did you know that a pet food maker can change the ingredients in a particular food and NOT tell any one? They do not have to change the ingredient list or nutritional content on the bag to accurately show the change for SIX MONTHS! This is so the manufacturers can use up the bags they already have. The official AAFCO book can be obtained by contacting:

I love this recipe because it makes a lot and it's so easy! You just throw everything into the bowl, mix, and pat onto 2 greased cookie sheets - no rolling or cookie cutters.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Grease 2 cookie sheets.
In a VERY large bowl, mix together:

6 cups oatmeal
2 cups whole wheat flour
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup molasses
1 cups milk

I usually add either 1-large can of solid pack pumpkin or 3-4 mashed bananas, but they are fine without these additions. Mix this whole mess together (I use my hands, AFTER I take my rings off), pat onto greased cookie sheets and bake at 325 for 1 hour.
After 1 hour turn oven off, crack oven door and allow cookies to cool in oven.
Break into whatever size you want. These freeze really well. My guys love these; they sit in front of the oven waiting.

The following is a list of commercial foods made of all human grade ingredients (in alphabetical order). If you know of any that I have omitted, please let me know!
