Ohmiwoof you guys! I am so excited. Do you know why?? This is our FIRST EVER Tasty Tuesday guest post! Woof yeah! While the Mama was off galavanting at BlogPaws (more on that to come tomorrow), there was NO ONE to make my treats. Good thing Luna & Cynder’s Daddy K is was better than my Mama, eh?
Hello and welcome to Tasty Tuesday Downunder!
Luna & Cynder from A Dog’s Life
There are a few staple ingredients that we love cooking biscuits with in our place, carrot and peanut butter. A friend recently told us about a recipe that also included sweet potato, so we thought why not give it a try for the pup? It would be Cynder’s first try of homemade treats!
I got to Dad to get his paws dirty and whip us up a batch of tasty cookies.
I call them, Luna and Cynder’s Sweet Potato and Carrot Cookies!
Tasty Tuesday: Luna & Cynder’s Sweet Potato and Carrot Cookies!
The Stuff (aka Ingredients)
- 2 cups of wholemeal flour (Kol's Note: Use Garbanzo flour if your dog can't have grain)
- 1 carrot
- 1 cup of sweet potato, diced
- 2 generous tablespoons of peanut butter
- 1 egg
How We Do It (Instructions)
Preheat the over to 180 degrees Celsius (about 350 degrees Fahrenheit/
Chop the carrot and sweet potato into cubes and place on the boil
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, egg and peanut butter
Once the sweet potato and carrot are soft, take them off the boil and drain the water out. With a potato masher (or a fork) mash away, we left ours a bit chunky still so that there would be chunks in the biscuits! Yum!
Add this to the mixing bowl and then combine all the ingredients with a wooden spoon
You may need to get your paws dirty to help combine everything into a ball
Roll out the dough mix between two sheets of baking paper to your desired thickness, make sure you sprinkle a little extra flour to stop it sticking
Get your favourite cookie cutters out (we used our bone shape ones) and cut out the shapes, placing them on a lined baking tray
Put them in the oven for about 20 minutes until they get a nice brown colour. Wait for them to cool.
These biscuits are great and versatile. We recommend you keep them in the fridge, but you can also put some in the freezer to save for another time! :) We probably got about 24 biscuits out of these.
