Valentine's Day Dog Treat Recipe: Cranberry Hearts

Valentine’s Day Dog Treat Recipe: Cranberry Hearts

Ingredients
  • 2 free range eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3-4 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

Valentine's Day Dog Treat Recipe: Cranberry Hearts

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Preheat oven to 165°C.
  • Beat 2 eggs and set aside.
  • Combine your almond flour, coconut oil and dried cranberries together in a bowl. 
  • Once combined, pour in the eggs and mix together with your hands. The dough will be very wet.
  • Begin adding in your coconut flour one TBSP at a time, mixing in each one after added. You want to achieve a consistency that is easy to roll and not super sticky. This will require between 3-4 TBSP depending on your brand of flour and size of your eggs. The dough should easily form a ball.
  • Rollout your dough and cut out the treats using bite-sized cookie cutters, like these hearts which are perfect for Valentine’s Day (Tip: Sprinkle a little coconut flour on top of your dough to keep it from sticking to the cookie cutters!)
  • Place your treats on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until crisp.
  • Makes approx. 20 treats (dependant on size of cutter).

Let cool before giving to your pooch and enjoy!

Have a beautiful Valentine’s Day, and give some extra smooches to those pooches xoxo
