Grain Free Mock-Choc Peanut Butter Treats

Your pup will enjoy these grain-free peanut butter- carob “mock-choc” treats!  These treats are made with buckwheat flour, which is surprisingly grain free! Of course dogs can not have chocolate, since it’s on the list of poisonous food to dogs, but your pup can enjoy the natural sweetness of the carob in this homemade dog cookie recipe. I chose Santa, Snowman, and Christmas tree cookie cutters since we are just days away from Christmas, but you can choose any cookie cutter you like for this recipe!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 3/4 cups organic buckwheat flour
  • 4 tsp carob powder
  • 1 cup of organic, unsweetened/no salt added peanut butter
  • 1 cup of low fat or fat free milk (you can substitute water if your pup cannot have milk)
  • 1/4 cup carob chips

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the buckwheat flour and carob powder.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, warm the peanut butter for approximately 30 seconds.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the warmed peanut butter and milk (or water) together with a fork until thoroughly combined.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the peanut butter mixture.
  • Stir until combined – add water if necessary to get dough to a consistency you are comfortable working with
  • Fold in the carob chips.
  • Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet.
  • Using cookie cutters of your choice, cut our shapes in the dough.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes on a parchment paper-lined cookie tray. Cool completely on a wire rack. Or, for crunchier treats, leave in the oven, once turned off, to cool and harden for 2 hours.

 

These treats will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or freeze for longer duration.
