  1. Thanks so much for the feature! I hope all the pups enjoy these as much as Lola & Rio did!

    What a great treat! Our pup has a grain allergy. Do you have any suggestions for a substitute for the rice flour? Thanks!

    This recipe inspires me. Thank you so much!
    Carob is great for healthy canine digestion, so I enjoy using it in treat recipes. This recipe is a great use of that healthy ingredient. And my dogs love the taste.
    The dogs already get whole raw eggs in their meals, so I substituted the egg with a flax meal-water mixture.
    The coconut oil is another healthy ingredient for dogs, so yet another plus for the recipe. I melted down the oil though to incorporate it better into the batter.
    Instead of yogurt, I used previously frozen bananas of the same volume (about 2 bananas).
    I made a few batches with variations and all were great. I came up with some other frostings though since one dog is not a fan of nuts. Rosie the Leonberger and Porter the Leonberger (both rescues) will enjoy all the variations for her birthday bash (week long feasting)!
