Recipe of the Week :: Fleas Navidad Nibblers
Merry Dogmas! 'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for the dog eating off the counter... as quiet as a mouse. Keep in mind, these weekly recipes are not only all natural, but they are perfect bites for you and the dog in your life to share (just use separate bowls!).
2 tablespoons honey
2 3/4 cups water
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
4 cups whole-wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon nutmeg
Everything ready to go? Great! We're five simple steps away from a Christmas treat your pup will never forget. (He'll be one happy holidog!)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, mix together honey, water, applesauce, vanilla, and egg.
In a separate bowl, mix peanuts, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir, mixing well.
Spoon into a greased muffin tin, filling each cup two-thirds full. Bake for 35 minutes. Store in a sealed container.
