Who else has a furry child that they absolutely adore 🙋🏻♀️
My puppy's name is Bernadette, Bernie for short and the guy in the picture is named Wolfgang aka Wolfie. Big name for such a small guy :)
Both these puppies have sensitive stomachs and I was surprised to see how many grains are in their foods. So because I want everyone I love to have a healthy and happy gut, I decided to start making grain free treats. Bernie gets a grain-free birthday cake every year...but that is for another time.
This recipe I like to make around the holidays so Berns has a different kind of treat to enjoy, the same way we get to enjoy our christmas cookies. I normally don’t recommend eating peanut butter to my clients, but most people have it in their pantry, so this is a great way to use it up, as it is not as irritating to dogs as it is for humans. If you have almond butter (go you!) then absolutely substitute it!
I love cooking for people but I enjoy making grain free treats for our furry friends as well.
Let me know how they like it and happy holidays to everyone!! 🎄
1/3 cup of natural smooth peanut butter (stir before using)
2 tbsp of freshly ground flax seeds
1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups of almond flour
2 to 5 tbsp of water to achieve a dough like consistency
Preheat your oven to 350 and like a cookie sheet with parchment paper
In a mixing bowl combine the peanut butter, flax seeds and molasses. Stir until well combined
Mix in the egg and stir thoroughly
Gradually mix in the almond flour until fully incorporated. Add water as needed until you have a dough like consistency
Roll out your dough until it is 1/4 inch thick and use your favourite cookie cutter shapes.
Bake for 25 to 35 minutes until the cookies are firm
Cool and have your dog enjoy them!
