Monday, October 28th, 2013

With the holidays coming up, I’m sure your dog could use a little holiday treat! For a delicious, tasty, and festive recipe, check out this one from The Bark Magazine!

Beyond biscuits—here’s a homemade nutritious treat perfect for those festive occasions.

Yield: About 24 mini-mutt cups and 24 garnish cookies

Dog-safe “mutt cups”
By

Ingredients
For the Cups
2 1/2 cups (310 g) whole wheat flour
1/2 cup (40 g) whole rolled oats
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup (240 ml) water
1/2 cup (130 g) all-natural crunchy peanut butter

For the Filling
1/2 cup (100 g) puréed pumpkin
16 ounces (450 g) cream cheese, softened to room temperature
Directions 
For the Cups

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Combine wheat flour and oats in a large bowl. Add egg, water and peanut butter and mix well.
On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough and roll out to 1/8″ (0.3 cm) thickness.
Cut out twenty-four 2″ (5 cm) circles. Use remaining dough to cut out 24 small garnish cookies (Here’s an idea: Cut the cookies into your dog’s favorite shapes.)
Spray a mini-muffin pan with oil and lightly dust with flour. Lay circles in the mini-muffin cups and press.
Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool enough to handle, remove from pan, then let cool completely.

Store in sealed container until ready to fill with cheese mixture.

For the Filling
With a hand mixer, mix pumpkin and cream cheese together until well blended.
Place cream cheese mixture into a pastry bag with a large-tip opening; you can also use a plastic sandwich bag—snip corner of sandwich baggie to create a 1/2″ (1.3 cm) opening.
Gently squeeze filling into cookie cups. Garnish with a small cookie.

Healthy Dog Biscuit Recipe

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

We love making treats for our furry friends and this dog biscuit recipe only includes six ingredient and it’s health for your dog also! It only takes about 20 minutes to make and I’m sure your dog will love these delicious snacks. Enjoy and happy Friday!

Healthy Dog Biscuits

Ingredients

2 eggs
½ cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons dry milk
¼ teaspoon sea salt
cups brown rice flour *
1 teaspoon dried parsley (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin to smooth. Stir in dry milk, sea salt, and dried parsley (if using, optional). Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine. Roll dough between 1/4 – 1/2? – depending on your dog’s chew preferences, – and use biscuit or other shape cutter to punch shapes, gathering and re-rolling scraps as you go. Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing or paper necessary. If desired, press fork pattern on biscuits before baking, a quick up-and-down movement with fork, lightly pressing down halfway through dough. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely on rack before feeding to dog. * Brown rice flour gives the biscuits crunch and promotes better dog digestion. Many dogs have touchy stomachs or allergies, and do not, like many people I know, tolerate wheat. Makes up to 75 small (1?) biscuits or 50 medium biscuits
