Now I am one smart dog, after all I am almost 3 years old, but these holidays are a bit confusing to me. Every year around this time of year we pull out all my bunny and lamb toys and sometimes wait in line to see a HUGE rabbit.
The two-leggers often eat chocolate eggs that ooze out sweet smelling creams and tell me no-no you can’t have that! Well, if there is a real Easter Bunny I know he would surely let me have one of those chocolate bunnies too. So this year I am sending him a letter to ask for a carob chocolate egg.
I even have sent him the recipe! If you would like to try it out please feel free to mix some up this easter for your four-legger.
Grain Free PB & Carob Pup Egg Recipe
- 1 banana
- 2 eggs
- 1 c. natural, unsweetened peanut butter
- 1 1/2 c. Garbanzo Bean Flour
- 1 c. Carob Chips
- Per-heat the oven 350 F (you can line the baking sheet with parchment paper or spray it with PAM
- Mash up the banana until silky smooth (the ripe ones work well)
- Add in the Peanut Butter and Eggs, stir til well blended
- Mix in the flour
Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface to 3/16″ – 1/4″ thick.
Use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. I want mine to be egg shaped but you can make it into any shape you would like.
Cut paw prints out of each cookie.
Bake 10 minutes, flip… bake for 5 – 10 minutes more til a light golden brown.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Once cookies are cool to touch. Melt the carob chips, stirring constantly. Remove the carob from heat just before you think it is fully melted.
Fill a piping bag, with melted carob. Fill each paw opening with carob and allow to cool until hard set. If you do not want to do paw prints you can cover the top of the egg shape and make it look like the carob is melting down the cookie!
Mr Easter Bunny get baking! I will be waiting for my cookies!
Every day is a love fest for Sadie, tails wag constantly even in her sleep. You have to wonder what magical land she dreams about. Hillsides of tall grass with trees that grow cheese.
Anyone can own a dog, but only love can make them wag their tail. Make a dog wag their tail today!
A dog is always happy to see you, even if you just walked into another room.
A dog listens to you, no matter how boring the subject might be.
A dog will give you a kiss, even if you have morning breath.
A dog loves you unconditionally.
So this Valentine’s Day remember to pay a little extra attention to that furry friend who loves you so much.
2 eggs (we use the brown shelled ones but don’t use the shells!)
1/2 cup canned organic pumpkin
2 tablespoons dry milk (great for putting protein into your dog’s diet)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt (sea salt is good for pets with pet arthritis)
2 1/2 cups brown rice flour (traditional flours don’t provide good nutrition for dogs)
1/2 teaspoon honey (optional, it is just a taste that Sadie likes and your pup might like too)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Blend together; eggs with pumpkin and honey together
- Add in sea salt, dry milk, and flour.
- Add water as needed to make the dough workable be careful not to make soggy.
- The dough should be dry and stiff. (crunchy and good for teeth brushing)
- Mix this with your hands because it might burn out your electric mixer’s motor.
- Roll to 1/2-inch thick.
- Cut into shapes, most people shape like dog bones but you can add some fun to your pup’s life by making fun shapes like hearts for valentine’s day or bat for howl-O-ween. We like this website for buying cookie cutters: TheCoookieCutterShop
- Place 1″ to 1”1/2 apart on an un-greased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then flip and bake another 20 minutes.
I have been a good girl all year and won’t take up too much space. I would really like to help you bring some good cheer to all the other good four-leggers this year.
So, if dear reader, you happen to spy this Christmas Eve a small four-legger with the wind in their hair and a wag in their tail helping St. Nick deliver good cheer it’s just me Sadie Paws!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night!
