DIY Halloween Treats for 4-legged Trick-Or-Treaters

October 30, 2014

On Halloween, you’re sure to see some 4-legged tick-or-treators on your doorstep next to children. So, why not be prepared by having a batch of freshly made treats by your side? It’s a fun way to do something special for the dogs (and cats) that visit your home this Halloween.

Peanut Butter PupCakes

You will need…
½ cup brown rice flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/3 cup oil (no canola)
1/3 cup applesauce
1 egg
2 tbs. honey
3 tbsp. plain Greek yogurt
1 ½ tbs. peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl stir flour, baking powder, oil, applesauce, egg and honey until well-combined. Insert cupcake liners into a muffin or cupcake tin. Spoon the mixture into the cupcake liners, filling each about halfway. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the PupCake comes out clean. Allow to cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir yogurt and peanut butter until mixture is smooth and creamy. Use a small spatula or butter knife to smooth a layer of peanut butter frosting over the PupCake.

Noms for Cats

You will need…

1 cup flour
1 tbs. dried catnip
1 can tuna
1 tbs. tapioca flour
½ tbs. olive oil

Preheat oven to 250 degreed F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Throw all ingredients in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Pinch small pieces off and roll into small balls (about ¼” thickness), and over your parchment with them. Bake for about 10 minutes until they are dry to the touch. Allow them to cool completely before serving to your cat. Store in a dry, airtight container.

A word of caution: While pumpkin is healthy for dogs, remember that chocolate is not! Some of the recipes that we’ve seen listed as “dog safe” call for white chocolate, which is still deadly to dogs. You can substitute white or regular carob chips in recipes that call for chocolate for a dog-safe version.
