Grain Free Christmas Dog Treat

Updated: Mar 27



Who else has a furry child that they absolutely adore πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ


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!! πŸŽ„
