Treats for Puppies and People
Last week I made my sweet puppy, Lacey, some Pup Tarts from a doggie treat recipe I got from The Organic Dog Biscuit Cookbook. Lacey has loved all the treats I have made her and treats from this cookbook she has gotten from friends.
Pup Tarts, taken from The Organic Dog Biscuit Cookbook
1 c. oat flour (can be replaced with whole wheat flour, if your pup doesn’t have wheat allergies)
1/2 c. brown rice flour
1/4 c. safflower oil
1/4 c. water
1/2 c. blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 c. diced strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. peanut butter (unsalted)
Preheat oven to 400degrees. Combine all dough ingredients together and mix thoroughly.
Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4in. thickness.
Divide evenly into 24 pieces and press them into the cups of a lightly greased mini muffin pan.
Stir all the filling ingredients together and mix thoroughly.
Scoop even amounts into each of the crusts in the muffin pan.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges of the crust are golden brown.
Store in an airtight container in the refridgerator.
This is very important because since these treats do not have any preservatives they only stay fresh in the fridge for 2 weeks. If you are like me and have a small pup, it is best to either freeze what won’t be eaten in the next 2 weeks, or give to other dog owners so they can share these yummy dog treats with their puppies too!
Mmmm…Lacey loves these treats!! I think the combination of fruit and peanut butter must be really tasty to her!
