A new collar, treats, or toys can all be great gifts for your pet on Valentine’s day. Valentine’s Day can also be a great time to try a new dog or cat treat recipe or make a new toy. If your pet is already swimming in toys and treats, consider giving toys, bedding, food, or a donation to an animal shelter or rescue group in your pet’s name. Read more
What pup doesn’t love to eat pumpkin and throw in some cranberries for a healthy option – for a wonderful experience. Cranberries contain a high level of resveratrol, which is a natural compound found to have anti-cancer properties. These properties also reduce the risk of heart disease.
Pumpkin helps to balance the pancreas, which produces insulin so it is especially important in the diets of dogs with diabetes or hypoglycemia.
Start by mixing the soy, fava bean and hazelnut flours together. Then mix in the baking soda and baking powder. Set aside.
Gather the wet ingredients and beat together.
Add the wet mix to the dry mix on low speed of a stand mixer. Beat on medium for about a minute.
Lightly oil a miniature donut pan and bake for 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and turn over to remove the donuts. Let them cool completely before giving to your little pup/s.
Keep in an airtight container within the refrigerator for a week or freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost completely before giving to your pup/s. Makes about 25 to 30 miniature woof-uts (donuts).
OPTIONAL: You can also make these into cakes and bones sticks. You can use any shape that you have, including miniature cupcakes.
Bone Sticks – Make this recipe as written and place in the bone pan shapes.
Bone Cakes – Make this recipe but add 1 cup of warm water to the recipe. This will make the cakes lighter.
Special Note: Remember that gluten-free flours do not react as wheat flours (gluten) do when mixing and baking. I have added fava bean flour, baking soda and baking powder so that these will expand some.
1 cup soy flour
½ cup hazelnut flour
½ cup fava bean flour
1-½ tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ cup finely chopped organic dried cranberries (no sugar added is the best)
2 eggs – beaten
½ cup olive oil
1 cup pure organic pumpkin (canned or fresh from the garden)
1 cup warm filtered water (optional: for cakes)
