Baking and sharing sweet dog treats the other day was a first for me …
I adore easy cooking recipes. The days of imitating Martha Stewart are over! #atleastforme
My biscuits may not look ANYTHING like the ones in the photo – but Harley nor Jaxson can read, so it will forever remain my little secret!
Any recipe with peanut butter will definitely be a hit with them. Adding pumpkin to the mix #punintended will motivate me to try it because pumpkin is so very good for them.
The ingredients required are –
- 1 cup pumpkin
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup oil (*I used Canola – I ran out of Coconut)
- 2.5 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons bacon grease, melted
- 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
DON’T BLOW THE DIET –
It’s been almost two months now since we made the switch to our “alternative to raw” diet and I didn’t want to blow it by adding the whole wheat flour.
I called Kimberly of Keep the Tail Wagging and she suggested I substitute the whole wheat with coconut.
I’d never heard of coconut flour before.

Apparently I’ve been under a rock – it’s plentiful in every grocery store I shop. #whoknew
Since this is Wordless Wednesday – the recipe instructions are here. I omitted the “glaze” – didn’t feel like frying the bacon. #keepingitreal
THIRTY SEVEN BISCUITS LATER –
OMDoodle! There were enough biscuits for the entire neighborhood! I placed a fair amount on a plate, stored a few in the freezer, and put the rest in an old Country Crock container. The Boys and I decided to share a dozen of these sweet dog treats with two adorable Doodle friends who live down the street.
We rang the bell, and waited patiently for someone (in addition to our Doodle friend) to come to the door (you can see her in the doorway)…
Their Doodle Dad came outside and talked to us first. He was impressed with my culinary Doodle skills and seemed excited to share them with his canine crew as well…
It was fun to share our sweet treats.
ONE MORE THING –
Commercial treats can have such questionable ingredients in them, I am trying to make more of them myself.
Grain-Free Coconut Flour Soft Chews is next on our list. They look A-mazing and I plan to substitute pumpkin for the sweet potato.
Do you make your own dog treats? Got any you’d love to share?
The more we share – the more we have ❤️
