Vegan MoFo: puppeh edition

3 Sep

As I was flipping through my copy of Chloe’s Kitchen this weekend I was reminded of this recipe for dog biscuits that I had earmarked ages ago.  They are so easy to put together and I was able to bake a batch while I made pancakes over the weekend.

Since my pup Rhodie is pretty picky when it comes to treats I only made a half batch, which still makes a lot!  The recipe is super simple–just whole wheat flour, peanut butter, molasses, and water. I doubled the molasses since I was worried he wouldn’t like them and skipped dipping them in carob.  I used cookie cutters for about half of the dough, then got lazy and just rolled the rest into balls that I flattened with my hand on the baking sheet.  Efficiency ftw!

When it came time to taste test there was some initial skepticism but after the first treat he was hooked!  Hooray!  I was so excited and Rhodie was so cute eating his little cookies that I may have given him way too many yesterday. At least they’re healthy!

    What a cutie!

    The cookies sound like they’d be tasty, actually. Did you try any, or does he get them all?

      I did try them! They taste like slightly sweet peanut butter crackers.

    Oh, such a cutie pie! Cookies are looking good too.
    I was thinking of doing a canine MoFo as well and bought the suppliesyesterday. But the peanut butter sounds great too, I will make it as a second option when I do the baking for the furkids. I will link back to you. Is that ok?
    I’m new to VeganMoFo, veganism itself AND blogging, so I’m hope I’m not breaking any rules here. 🙂

    Oh my gosh, yes! Adorable puppy pictures!! I love his look in the first pic—like, I dunno about this… My dogs would be all over those treats in a heartbeat no doubt.

    […] Hot Vegan Chick…Peas! – Puppeh Edition I don’t know if you all know this, but even though I am definitely a cat person, in that I might actually believe that I can’t make it through life without a glorious feline beast by my side and I feel lost when I go too long without hearing and feeling a faint contented purr, I love dogs. And I have missed having dogs so much, but my life just hasn’t been stable enough for such a creature. Up North, I have a beautiful Boxer for a Fur-Nephew, and while he already totally adores me, I have some extra flour I want to use up before leaving, so he is definitely getting a batch or two of these dog biscuits.
