If you have any pets at home then you probably know the feeling of baking a fresh batch of cookies or cakes and then having to wrestle away your four legged friend as they try to gobble them up. Unfortunately most dessert recipes are not animal friendly because of their high sugar or chocolate content. It seems unfair for your animal friends to miss out on your delicious baked treats, so here are a few recipes that are sure to keep them satisfied.
Peanut butter and pumpkin cookies
This delicious blend of creamy peanut butter and sweet pumpkin will make a healthy snack for dogs.
Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix together, adding water to create a dough that’s stiff and dry. Roll out the dough and cut it into pieces using our paw print cookie cutter or mini bone cookie cutter, then place them into the oven at 180 degrees celcius until they’re hard.
Fish and coconut crunchies
Anyone who has a cat will know how picky those four legged felines can be, but these delicious treats are sure to have them purring for more.
Combine the ingredients in a food processor, or with a whisk in a bowl. Make sure to mix it evenly into a dough that is slightly sticky. Roll chunks of the dough into small croutons and bake on a tray for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until dry and crunchy.
A lot of pet treat recipes focus mainly on cats and dogs, which means that other animals are usually overlooked. This is a recipe for bird lovers to keep their avian friends chirping with joy.
Bring your water to the boil and then stir the gelatine powder in until it has dissolved. Stir occasionally as the mixture cools down and thickens. Add the rest of the ingredients and keep stirring to spread the berries and seed evenly. Separate the mixture into moulds of your choice and leave to set. If you want to keep your winged friends cool then simply pop the lollies in the freezer.
