Our friends from Kriser’s Natural Pet Store shared a special dog treat recipe,
GRANDMA KRISER’S PUP-KIN PIE.
The recipe is pawfect to make for the holidays.
What’s makes this recipe special? Four Main Ingredients:
1. High Hopes Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Baked Cookies – Nothing but baked goodness! Nutritious and delicious dog crunchy cookies.
2. K9 Granola Organic Virgin Coconut Oil – Absolutely pure coconut oil! Made from freshly pressed coconut milk, chilled and separated by centrifugal force, allowing the coconut oil to remain raw.
3. Fruitables Pumpkin SuperBlend Digestive Supplement – made with harvest fresh pumpkin that tastes like a favorite holiday pie.
4. Primal Goat’s Milk – great for use as a digestive aid. By adding goat milk to your pet’s diet, they will gain the benefits of moisture and the benefits from raw nutrients.
GRANDMA KRISER’S PUP-KIN PIE
Makes 12 Pup-Cakes
One bag of High Hopes Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Baked Cookies
5-6 TB of K9 Granola Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
One can of Fruitables Pumpkin SuperBlend™ Digestive Supplement
½ Cup Primal Goat’s Milk – thawed
1 tsp of cinnamon (optional)
*All ingredients can be found at Kriser’s Natural Pet, or likely at a natural pet supply store in another market if Kriser’s isn’t there. For store locations visit Krisers.com.
• Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
• Melt the coconut oil in the microwave until just liquefied,
about 10 seconds. Crush the High Hopes cookies in a food
processor until it forms find crumbs. Mix the oil into the crumbs, then gently press 2 tablespoons of the mixture into lined muffin pans, making a crumb-crust. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool in pan for 5-10 minutes.
• Meanwhile, make the pie filling. By hand or with an electric mixer, combine pumpkin, goat’s milk, eggs and cinnamon (if desired).
• Once pie crusts are cooled, fill each crust with the pie filling – about 2-3 tablespoons of filling should fit in each crust.
• Bake for 15 minutes until just golden on top.
• Because there is no sugar, like a human pie would have, these will stay soft and crumbly. We fed them to the pups as is, but you may want to freeze them for a longer lasting treat. We also strongly suggest keeping them in the bowl or on a plate – they definitely crumble a bit!
• Also, for smaller pups, you can make them in mini muffin tins – just use less crust mixture!
• For a slightly sweeter crust, try Grandma Lucy’s Organic Pumpkin Biscuits to replace High Hopes.
I omitted the eggs and cinnamon from the recipe and made a
Stackable Mini-Pup-kin Pies Top with Fruitables Pumpkin & High Hopes Cookies Crumbs.
Lots of Golden Thanks Kriser’s for the recipe.
