Some of you may have seen our little “farting machine” here on the blog or on Instagram already. Our French bulldog Bruno is bringing us joy for seven years already with loud snoring at night and frequent farting attacks when we are innocently watching a movie on the sofa. Yesterday was his birthday – Bruno and I have the same zodiac sign and are both equally stubborn – in order to celebrate that special day I made him some Doggie Cookies with Carrots, Potatoes and a tiny bit of peanut butter… because he loves peanut butter ;)
I know that Cookie Friday is normally only for humans and their cookie cravings, but today’s cookies are made especially for dogs… but can be eaten by humans as well – in theory. You have to like dry and hard cookies that taste almost like cardboard – without any seasoning, they are not the tastiest cookies for us humans, but dogs like Bruno love them. He enjoyed the cookies a lot actually. But that’s not very surprising – he eats everything you place in front of him. He is not really a picky dog ;P
Anyway. If you have dogs at home or maybe your family or friends have dogs, you can bake some cookies for them too from now on. I am pretty sure the dog-shaped fur balls will appreciate the little extra treat. I recommend checking with a dog owner first if they are allergic to any of the ingredients – you never know. Our Bruno, for example, is allergic to apples – even though he loves to eat them – but apples cause rashes in his ears… ;)
If you give dogs a snack on the side, you have to keep in mind, that each snack has to be added to his daily food intake. To many snacks make doggies fat ;) I don’t know how much other dogs can have on the side, but a small breed like Frenchies should not eat more than two of these cookies in addition to the regular dog food. You don’t want your dog to turn into an overweight fur ball and in the case of Bruno too many cookies with that kind of ingredients (the flour) would make him fart more… and nobody wants that! Believe me ;)
INGREDIENTS / ZUTATEN
6.7 oz. (190g) wholemeal spelt flour
6.7 oz. (190g) baby food carrot & potato (without salt!)
1 tbsp. peanut butter
1 Glas (190g) Babynahrung Karotte & Kartoffel (ohne Salz!)
1 EL Erdnussbutter
DIRECTIONS / ZUBEREITUNG
2. Add flour, baby food, and peanut butter to a mixing bowl and mix/knead until you get a nice (and wet) dough. Roll out (not too thin) on a well-floured surface and cut out as many biscuits (e.g. dog bones*) as possible. Collect the scraps and roll out again to cut out more cookies. Place them on the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes – they should be quite dry and crunchy. Take out of the oven and let cool down completely on a wire rack.
2. Mehl, Babynahrung und Erdnussbutter in eine Rührschüssel geben und zu einem glatten Teig verrühren/kneten. Den Teig auf einer gut bemehlten Fläche nicht zu dünn ausrollen und dann Kekse ausstechen (z.B. Hundeknochen*). Teigigste zusammensammeln und erneut ausrollen und Kekse ausstechen. Auf das vorbereitete Blech setzen und dann für etwa 20 Minuten backen – sie sollten relativ trocken und “crunchy” sein. Aus dem Ofen holen und auf einem Kuchengitter komplett auskühlen lassen.
