We often make homemade treats for human family but what about our animal family? The Organic Dog Biscuit Cookbook by the Bubba Rose Biscuit Company is filled with items to treat your pet. All ingredients used in the recipes are safe for your four-legged friends and by making them yourself, you know exactly what products the item contains. Everything I have made out of this book has been a hit with Chloe, my three-year old Sheltie. Pictured above are The Elvis Pupsleys, a muffin that is a combination of peanut butter and banana, the King's favorite. I generally cut all of these recipes in half because they tend to make a large amount if you have only one pet.
The Elvis Pupsleys
2 c. oat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. carob chips
1 c. bananas (mashed and pureed)
1 c. peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tb. honey
1/2 cup safflower oil (can be substituted for olive oil or canola oil)
Preheat oven to 350. Peel, mash and puree bananas in a food processor. Combine all ingredients together and mix thoroughly. Place cupcake papers into a mini muffin pan. Spoon mixture evenly into the papers cloes to the top of the papers (the mix will not rise very much). Bake 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on a wire rack. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator.
Happy Reading (and Cooking)!
