Today’s Dog Treat Cookie Recipe

BLUEBERRY PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES – GRAIN FREE – GLUTEN FREE

Blueberry PB
BLUEBERRY PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES – GRAIN FREE – GLUTEN FREE
1¾ cups organic chickpea (garbanzo bean) flour – see notes
¼ cup organic pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
¼ cup organic raw honey
3 tbsp. organic, all-natural peanut butter
1 tbsp. finely ground flaxseed meal – see notes
½ cup dried blueberries (soaked in ¼ cup water for 10 minutes and drained) – see notes
Preheat the oven to 165° C (325 F°) and line baking tray with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the pumpkin, peanut butter and honey.
Add the flaxseed meal and mix thoroughly.
Add in the chickpea flour ¼ cup at a time and continue mixing until dough forms.
Add in the hydrated blueberries and gently fold in to combine.
Lightly flour a work surface and rolling pin with some chickpea flour.
Turn mixture on floured surface and gently bring together with hands.
The mixture can sometimes be sticky; you can add a little more chickpea flour to achieve a workable consistency. (It’s a forgiving recipe; don’t worry too much about gently working and adding flour to achieve a workable result.)
Continue to work the dough until you can roll it out to about ¼ inch thickness.
Using a small sized cookie cutter, dip cutter into chickpea flour and cut out shapes.
If you don’t have a small cookie cutter, just cut the dough into little squares with a pizza cutter or a sharp knife.
Continue working, rolling and cutting until all dough is used.
Place cookies on the cookie sheet and bake for about 10-15 minutes, depending on your oven. Cool completely and then store in an airtight container for up to a month.
I like to store these in the refrigerator so they stay fresh.
Makes about 36 doggie cookies using a 1 inch diameter cutter, perfect treat size!

Feed these Blueberry Peanut Butter Cookies as a treat.
Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pets diet.
As with any treat, always provide fresh water after feeding.

NOTES:
Chickpea flour – high in easily digestible protein and grain free and gluten-free. A significant source of calcium and foliate, and a good source of dietary fiber. Does not cause any known allergies in dogs.
Blueberries – antioxidant powerhouses (blueberries contain anthocyanins and phenolics that act as antioxidants). Antioxidants in blueberries have been shown to slow the aging process and reduce the risk of cancer. Researchers at Tufts University have given blueberries the highest rating of all foods tested for their capacity to destroy free radicals. Blueberries also contain beta-carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E.
Flaxseed Meal – full of Omega 3 fatty acids, excellent for your dog’s heart, skin and fur.
