When I first stumbled upon it I literally spent an hour exploring the dog treat recipes. I WANT TO MAKE THEM ALL. For real you guys go look at her recipes, I don’t even know how she comes up with half of these. This will probably be my go to for finding dog treat recipes, even before Pinterest. Yup, I said it. Before. Pinterest.
Here’s the recipe…
1 chicken breast, cooked and chopped
¼ cup dried cranberries
½ cup coconut milk
1 cup brown rice flour
2 Tbs dried coconut
1 Tbs dried peppermint leaves (Soooo this was nonexistent at the store I got supplies at so I skipped this ingredient. It’s not one of my recipe reviews unless something goes wrong. It's just part of the fun.)
· Preheat oven to 400F (or forget and wait till last minute, then sit around and wait for it to preheat like I normally do *sigh*) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
· Combine all your ingredients and knead by hand until all the ingredients are well mixed.
· Form dough into flat logs about 3in wide and 1in high I was very confused by this. Somehow what I gathered from this description was this…
· Remove from the oven and then allow to cool 10 minutes then cut into ½ in slices.
· Place slices back on sheet for 10-15 minutes until dry and crunchy. For me this ended up more like 25 minutes and I still didn’t feel like they were quite biscotti status crunchy. I’m used to feeling like I’m going to lose a tooth when I eat biscotti it’s so crunchy. I’m also pretty sure this result was courtesy of a combo of me being pretty careless while measuring the coconut milk and our oven from the 70’s.
· Cool and refrigerate.

Well my friends, I was mistaken. It was actually remarkably simple. Simple ingredients. Simple process. I was pleasantly surprised.
As for the fur babies, they love them! Whenever I leave the house and the girls think it should be adventure time, not mom needs to run errands time they go a tad insane. Last time they went crazy on my way out like that I just slipped em’ each a biscotti and it shut them right up. *Insert majestic voices singing from the heavens.*
These treats were a definite win, the dogs loved them and I felt like a super legit pastry chef/barista. Maybe I’ll have to try the puppacino recipe I discovered on Pinterest (obviously) with another one of her biscotti recipes… Hmmm…
