Gotcha Day Treats for a Pampered Pooch

I’ve just been making treats for Chippy and somebody asked for the recipe so here it is:


1 cup powdered carob

4 large eggs

1 cup desiccated coconut

1 cup oat bran

1/3 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup peanut butter (make sure it isn’t sweetened with anything nasty like Xylitol which is poisonous for dogs)

1 can pumpkin

1 teaspoon mixed spice

2 tablespoons soft brown sugar


Mix all the ingredients into a dough then use a heaped desert spoonful of the mixture to roll into balls, about the size of a ping pong ball.  Place on a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 200C for about 15 minutes.  They freeze well but should be fine in an air-tight container for a week or so.


Chippy was very impressed – she even licked the bowl!
