2. Frozen Pup Cakes
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1 ripe banana
- splash of unsweetened almond milk (or water)
Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add almond milk (or water) to get the desired consistency. Pour mixture into muffin tins and freeze until fully solid. Pop them out of the muffin tray and serve em up!
3. Sweet Potato Treats
- 2 medium sweet potatoes (make 2 cups sweet potato puree)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup oats
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 3 Tbsp peanut butter
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Peel and cube 2 medium sweet potatoes and bring to a boil in a pot of water. Simmer on low for 15-20 minutes (until soft). Drain and puree. In a separate bowl mix flour, oats, and cinnamon. In a separate larger bowl whisk egg, puree, and peanut butter. Mix wet ingredients with dry. Pour onto a flour surface and roll dough out to 1/4-3/8″ thick. Cut out cookie shapes using your choice of cookie cutter shapes. Dough will be slightly sticky. Flour helps! Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Let them cool and harden, then serve!
It’s always nice to treat your pet, but make sure they don’t over indulge this holiday season! Keep human dinner scraps clear from your furry friends reach! If you choose to share your bounty with your pets, make sure you set aside unsalted & unseasoned portions for them!
