Banana peanut butter pup cakes!

So this one was SO much fun to do! I had a little assistant in the kitchen this time! So with some lovely help from Sophie, we made some treats that barely got done before one got gobbled up!

Here we go.

1/2 c vegetable oil
1/2 c applesauce 
1/4 c molasses 
1/4 c peanut butter
1/4 cup pumpkin
2 c potato flakes
2tsp cinnamon 
2tsp baking soda
2 ripe bananas

Add oil, applesauce, molasses, and pumpkin. Combine in bowl until smooth. Add peanut butter and mashed bananas. Blend completely, 


In another bowl, combine flour, soda, and cinnamon. 
Add wet ingredients to dry, stirring completely. 
Pour into cupcake molds and bake at 350 for 20 minutes
Let cool then ice!


2/3 c plain yogurt 
1/2 c pumpkin
2 tsp cinnamon 

Mix in mixer and ice pupcakes!

Peanut butter banana pupsicle

So my picky eater wasn't as fond as my other pup with the last Pupsicle, so I altered it and added what I KNOW she is a variation recipe

1/2 c peanut butter
1/4 c yogurt 
1/4 c applesauce 
1 banana mashed
2tbs each chamomile,  and lavender (optional)
Mix ingredients together and scoop into mini cupcake tin, or ice cube trays

Freeze for 1-2 hours, 

To remove, either scrape down sides with a knife, or if you have a metal tin heat bottom for a few second on stove and that should help loosen up the pupsicles!

Banana pumpkin spice pupsicles

This is a wonderful treat for a hot summer day! You can add lavender for a calming effect.

1 mashed banana
1c plain yogurt
1c pumpkin
1tbs cinnamon 

Combine ingredients and place in ice trays or mini cupcake mold, or tart tins...the one in the picture is a Demarle tart mold.

Freeze for 1-3 hours depending on how deep the mold you are using is.

Keep in freezer till use! 


Beef stew bites!

Here is a meaty treat that will surely get your pups sitting pretty! If your pups don't like beef, switch it with the ground meat of your choice!

1/4 lbs ground beef
1/2 c potato flakes
1/4 c green beans chopped
2tbs parsley
2tbs beef broth (or broth of choice)

Put all ingredients into food processor and blend till green beans are minced. (If you don't have a food processor, mince beans, then mix all ingredients in a bowl till well combined.

Scoop ingredients into into a pastry bag and squeeze out small balls onto a greased sheet
(or use a ziplock bag with a tip cut out)

Bake in oven at 375 for 20 min.

Let cool, place in air tight container and store in fridge

Applesauce! And, shock, calming!

So, I decided to make some flour out of garbanzo beans. Well....the food processor was loud and scared the dog, they went out side. It took some time, and shifting from processing to sifting out the pods to re process into flour.... Needless to say, I only got about a cup before I had to stop for sanity's sake.

I mixed up a small "starter" batch of apple cookies with just the cup, and got a dozen cookies! The recipe I'm posting will be double that.

2c garbanzo four, plus extra for rolling
1/2 c applesauce
1tbs cinnamon 
2tbs each lemongrass, lavender, camomile. 

Mix together,  layout on a lightly floured surface and roll out. You want t to be about 1/4 in. Cut out using favorite cookie cutter- I use bones so we don't mix up dog treat and people treats.

Combine extra bits and re roll till there is not enough left to cut, take these and place them on the cookie sheet as taste testing (or extra goodies for puppies)! 

Bake in a 350 oven for 20-25 minutes
Let cool!

Peanut butter calming!

So, I make a lot of treats with lavender, lemongrass, and camomile- these are optional. I put them in so my anxious dog has some calming goodies! This concoction was a big hit!

Once again, if you don't want bean flour, feel free to switch it up.

1 1/2 c. Bean flour
3/4 c. Peanut butter
2/3 c.  Beef broth (or other broth of choice)
2 tbs each camomile, lavender, lemongrass (optional)

Mix well, 
Using a tablespoon scoop out and roll into ball, consistency might be a little crumbly at first, but a quick roll in the hand makes it perfect. Squish with a fork to get the fun crosshatch. 

Bake in oven at 350 for 30 min.. Let cool!  Bone-appatit

Pumpkin spice rolls!

Okay, this one takes a little commitment to make the tiny balls, but feel free to make them bigger, but be careful not to let your dog choke! Also, the bean flour is fragrant, if this bugs you, feel free to use a different kind!

Here it goes:

1c bean flour (or flour of choice)
1/2 c pumpkin
1/4 c honey
4 tbs cinnamon
2 tbs ginger

Mix well

Heat oven to 350- 

Using your hands-this is where it gets messy- roll into small balls. I used an 1/8th tsp to measure.  You can also use a pastry bag, or take a ziploc bag and cut a tip of a corner out....Thought of that AFTER I had my hands messy! 

Place on a greased pan and bake for 15 min.

If you make bigger balls, adjust heat time- you want them to be nice and brown, but supper gooey one the inside! Bone-appetit!




Grain free/veegan!

During the most recent holiday that people love, and dogs hate, I made this delightful goodie that helped my little dears stay calm while the fireworks were going off. It's relatively quick to make, and quite easy!

All you need is:

1c potato flakes
 1/2 c pumpkin,
 1/4 cup water ( or broth of choice,)
(2tbs of each) lavender, camomile, and lemon grass .
  mix well- if the mixture isn't staying together add more water, if it's too wet, add a little more potato
Take a table spoon to scoop and flatten on a cookie sheet.
 Bake at 350 for 35-45 min!
