Doggie Cookies

Doggie Cookies

My pup loves these cookies. 3 Ingredients, that’s it! Your house will smell wonderful while baking.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Peel and cut up the sweet potato in chunks, boil until fork tender.  Mash with potato masher until thoroughly mashed.  Let cool.
  2. Add the peanut butter, mix until completely combined.
  3. Add the almond flour, one up at a time.  Combine completely after each addition.   You will need to eyeball this step to determine how much flour you end up using.  Should be a  dough that when you pick up it does not stick to your hands or the mat you will roll out on.
  4. Roll dough out to your desired thickness, and use a small cookie cutter to cut into shapes.  I used a heart, circle, and square.
  5. Place on a cookie sheet topped with parchment paper.  Place each cookie on the baking sheet, and bake @ 350 for about 13 - 15 minutes, depending on thickness of cookie.  You will need to eyeball this step as well.
  6. Your pup will love this!

My doggie loved it!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F/175 C. In a large bowl, mix together the vegetable oil, peanut butter, pumpkin puree, apple sauce and honey. Add in the flour and egg, then whisk until smooth.
  2. Grease three 5 inch ramekins and split the cake batter evenly between them. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely.
  3. While the cakes cool, whisk together the remaining peanut butter, Greek yogurt and cream cheese. The icing may be lumpy (but if your dog doesn't mind, that's okay!).
  4. Spread the icing between the layers of cake, including the top. Add sprinkles, as desired, to the cake. Light a candle and sing happy birthday to your pup, then cut into bite sized pieces - this cake has 6-8 individual servings for a 30 lb dog. Enjoy!

Best Buttermilk Pancakes

Yield: 2 Servings
Author: Naples Foodies
The best buttermilk pancake recipe! I always swirl in some preserves or jam!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Make sure the egg and buttermilk are at room temperature.
  2. Preheat and lightly grease a large cast iron skillet.
  3. Mix the flour, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Add the egg, buttermilk, and butter; stir together lightly, but keep it lumpy. The batter should look thick, spongy, and puffy.
  4. Very IMPORTANT - LET BATTER REST FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES BEFORE MAKING THE PANCAKES, AND USE A CAST IRON PAN!!
  5. Drop 1/3 cup of the batter onto the cooking surface, spreading lightly with the bottom of the cup. Cook until lightly-browned on each side, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

Notes:

I swirled in organic whole blueberry preserves!

Chocolate Dump It Bundt Cake

This recipe surprised me!  Frosting is a bit funky, made with semi-sweet chocolate and sour cream.  Depending on how sweet you like your frosting will determine if you actually like it.  Personally, for my own taste, next time I will use milk chocolate chips for the frosting.  Overall the cake was amazing.
