The holidays are upon us… all the shopping, partying, visiting, wrapping, baking and cooking can get us in the most frenzied of states; or in the most festive! Depending upon the day, or the time of day, or who you’re with or if you just ran out of wrapping paper and you still have 17 gifts to wrap.
With everything that has to get done we tend to forget our furry little friends. Yes, some of us will buy a few new toys or perhaps a new bed but it’s rare to feel you have an extra 30 minutes to pamper your puppy with extra snuggle time or to even think of whipping up a batch of homemade treats. But don’t they deserve a little extra love this time of year too?
So if you can find an extra 30 minutes and want to make your puppy very happy this holiday season (or on any normal day too!), try these little cookies. They’re quick & easy and I find I usually have all the ingredients on hand throughout the year – so no rushing out to the grocery store for an ingredient you’ll only use once.
Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1/2 Cup raw, organic peanut butter
1/4 Cup raw, organic honey
1 TBS organic olive oil
1 Cup chicken broth (preferably homemade)
Whisk ingredients until well blended. Add the following to the wet mixture:
1 Cup organic rolled oats
1 Cup organic rice flour (or wheat if no allergies)
1 Cup organic milled flax seed
Stir until well combined. ( It will be a sticky dough. )
On parchment lined cookie sheet – roll out with your hands and drop teaspoon size cookies – Keeping 1/2″ between each cookie. Flatten slightly with your finger. Bake 15 minutes. Remove and let cool. Keep in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
And watch Fido (or in my case, Maxx) go crazy for these! I’m sure you’ll get extra kisses tonight too!!
