Ginger Snap Doggy Treats

At The Future Breakfast, we have a lot of gluten-free customers and many who are vegan. To cover all the bases we devised a brownie recipe that was both GF and free of animal byproducts, using sweet potato puree and peanut butter as main ingredients.

Since many dogs are wheat and gluten intolerant, we decided our doggy snack collaboration with HUND HUND could be a variation on this recipe. Sweet potato is high in fibre, so it’s great for dogs’ digestive systems, and peanut butter is a great source of vegetable protein. Of course we haven’t added any sugar or cocoa powder, as both can be harmful to our furry friends; instead, they contain the digestive aid ginger, which also possesses numerous therapeutic properties including antioxidant effects, lowering cholesterol and improved blood circulation.

These are simple, 4 ingredient biscuits that can be whipped up in no time and saved in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.

Ingredients:

1 cup ground oats or buckwheat flour

1/3 cup sweet potato purée (peeled, boiled and blended sweet potato)

1/4 cup natural unsweetened peanut butter

1 tbsp of ground ginger

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 150c.

  2. Combine ingredients in a blender or by hand and then roll out on a lightly floured surface (another handful of blended oats or buckwheat flour will do).

  3. Keep on adding peanut butter until it reaches a gooey consistency.

  4. Cut into shapes with a cutter or into rectangles then bake for 25-30 minutes or until dry and hard.

  5. Let them cool and seal them in an airtight container to keep ‘em snappy.
