I confess, my dogs are spoiled. Very spoiled. Jessica’s is too. We both have rescue pups that deserve to be spoiled, so it’s ok. I have a 12 year old 10 pound shih tzu named Bailey who just hangs out and sleeps all day, but always finds time to bark at the evil mail man. He protects the house. I also have a crazy 1 year old boxer lab mix named Belle (she’s about 80 pounds.) Jessica has Bentley, a food crazy almost 1 1/2 year old beagle mix. Belle and Bentley are best friends and can play for (and I’m not kidding) 12 hours a day. They are messy, dirty, and stinky. But we love them that way!
I created this recipe a couple of moths ago and it has been a big hit around my house. So, this year I am giving them as gifts to my fellow dog loving friends and neighbors. I also make my own dog food but that’s another blog for another day!
I looked for a store bought grain free treat that wasn’t awful for a while and just couldn’t find anything I felt good about. Bailey has a grain allergy. So, I was excited to discover garbanzo bean flour. It’s inexpensive and has a nutty flavor. We’ve used it to test things like biscuits, pie crusts, etc.
