One of Wednesday’s favorite weird dog snacks are carrots. She adores them. She hears us cutting them and comes running. She loves cinnamon flavored things too and I think cinnamon is one of the best flavors for the fall, its slight spiciness and warmth are amazing for the chilly nights and sweater-wearing days–dog sweaters of course.
These treats are human friendly too, but try, just try to pry them away from your pup’s paws, I dare you.
Easy One Bowl P.B. & Carrot Cinnamon Pup Snacks
1/2 c rolled oats (Bob’s Red Mill or other organic brand)
2 tbsp. diced carrots
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. organic crunchy peanut butter
1 tsp. organic maple syrup
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/8 c warm water
Preheat oven to 400F
Mix dry ingredients in a small/medium bowl with a spoon
Add peanut butter, oil, maple syrup and water one by one and mix until texture is uniform
Drop rounded half-teaspoon fulls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake until browned and crispy (about 10 minutes)
Remove from oven and let cool completely before feeding to Fido
Feel free to sprinkle with some extra cinnamon while cooling!
Since this is a shorter post, I’d like to mention that you can get ah-mazing vegan pup treats without even turning on the oven…from Kate’s Etsy shop, also called Wednesday Cafe. Here’s what I got for Zeus, my dog-like cat (and Peaceful Dumpling Chief Assistant):
