In a bowl combine all ingredients except the apple and water. Grate apple into mixture and add water. Mix until it starts forming a dough. Turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead well. Roll out to 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick. Take a straight edge and score the dough horizontally then vertically to make a grid of 3/4-inch squares. Be careful not to cut through the dough completely. Place the dough on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with a nonstick spray. Bake at 325 degrees F for 1 hour. Break apart for storage.

I think dogs can do without the cornmeal. It causes allergies in some. If I made this I'd substitute something else like rice flour or grind up brown rice into flour or maybe ground up oats.

In the Apple Cinnamon Dog Training Tips.... How many cups of water?? It looks like a question mark to me!

Would these be OK for monkeys and lemurs? They love apples.
