Roses are red, Violets are blue, These treats are the bomb, Your pup will think so too!
Valentine’s Day is very much a human holiday, but we love including our pets in on the festive fun with these Valentine’s Day Dog Treats. These grain-free treats are a breeze to make, have 5 healthy ingredients, and are deeelicious – Our treat testers can attest to that last part! The dried cranberries add a pop of fruity flavor to each bite size treat. Your pup won’t be able to resist these little love tokens.
Have a beautiful Valentine’s Day everyone, and give some extra smooches to those pooches! xoxo
2 Free Range Eggs
1 and 1/2 Cups Almond Flour
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
3-4 Tablespoons of Coconut Flour
1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries
Preheat oven to 165°C.
Beat 2 eggs and set aside.
Combine your almond flour, coconut oil and dried cranberries together in a bowl.
Once combined, pour in the eggs and mix together with your hands. The dough will be very wet.
Begin adding in your coconut flour one TBSP at a time, mixing in each one after added. You want to achieve a consistency that is easy to roll and not super sticky. This will require between 3-4 TBSP depending on your brand of flour and size of your eggs. The dough should easily form a ball.
Rollout your dough and cut out the treats using bite sized cookie cutters. Hearts are perfect for Valentine’s Day, I used this mini cutter. Tip: Sprinkle a little coconut flour on top of your dough to keep it from sticking to the cookie cutters.
Place your treats on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until crisp.
Makes approx. 20 treats (dependant on size of cutter). Let cool before giving to your pooch – Enjoy!
