So, what’s on the menu?

This fresh and springy menu has something for all you dog moms and your pups!

For the humans-only menu, we have a fresh and zesty drink, a light spring salad and a scrumptious little snack – coconut macaroons.

For the dog-friendly menu (in-keeping with our St Patrick’s Day green theme) you’ll find our delicious spinach and apple dog biscuit recipe.

Everything on the menu is 100% vegan, gluten free, grain free, and contains zero refined sugars. This goes for the dog treats as well.

Dog Treat: Spinach & Green Apple Dog Biscuits

Ingredients:
  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup organic unsalted peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 green apple, seeds and core removed
  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp water
Directions:
  • Use your hands to mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl and form the dough into a large ball. If too wet, add more almond flour.
  • Sprinkle almond flour or coconut flour on the counter to prevent from sticking, and roll the dough out flat.
  • Use a dog shaped cookie cutter (or any shape you would like) to cut out the biscuits (don’t have a cookie cutter? Just use a knife and cut into bite size bars or squares. You’re pup will love them no matter the shape!)
  • Preheat your oven to 400°F /200°C and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Rotate the cookie sheet and bring the oven temperature down to 350°F /175°C . Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until crisp.
  • Be sure to let cool completely before serving or storing in an air tight container.
  • Try our DIY dog treat jars for trendy storage!

  1. Serena,
    Just popping in from the BYW forums. Thanks so much for visiting my little blog and for your lovely comments.
    Your blog is such a delight to look at and to read – today’s spread of food looks scrumptious and perfect for the hot weather we’ve been having here in Melbourne.

    Sarah, this is super brilliant! I’m gonna at least try the salad and the dog biscuit 🙂

  3. Tricia says:

    I was told avocado is poisonous for dogs. Is this true???

    • says:

      Yep – avocado is not good for dogs, best to avoid.

      The avocado recipe above is for humans only. Best for the pups to stick to the dog treat recipe 🙂
