Ingredients

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. Hearts are perfect for Valentine’s Day, I used this mini cutterTip: 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 – Enjoy!

** The above recipe is for treats only and should not replace your dog’s regular meal plans. Always check with your vet about any major changes to your dog’s diet.
