I am not only a pet-friendly realtor specializing in real estate for both owners and their pets throughout Miami-Dade and Broward; I am also a mother, auntie and sister to 10 dogs combined. Pets are my passion. During the holidays, I show my family love through my cooking, while never forgetting my beloved furry gremlins. In fact, we always cook for our pets. It’s healthier, there are no preservatives, and cooking for them addresses many of their allergies. So, first, let me take this opportunity to wish you a very happy, healthy and memorable 2013 holiday season.
I’d like to share the following easy-to-bake peanut butter & pumpkin doggie treat recipe. You’ll need:
• 2 1/2 C whole wheat flour
• 2 eggs
• 3/4 C pumpkin puree
• 3 Tbsp all-natural peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350°F. Place all ingredients in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, use your paddle attachment. Mix on low for about a minute or until the dough starts to come together. It won’t be one big ball yet, but a bunch of smaller ones. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Work it together into a large ball, then roll it out to about 1/4″ thickness. You can use a cookie cutter for shapes or a knife to cut strips. (I used a 1″ 2-sided biscuit cutter.) Roll out the scraps again and again until there’s not enough dough left to work with. Place the treats on a baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray. They don’t expand, so 1/2″ between treats is enough. Bake 30 minutes. Let cool completely. Makes 75+ 1″ treats.
From my home to yours, I hope your little one/s enjoy this yummy and healthy treat!
