I hope you are all out there working on your goals for the year, whether they are to fight for social justice…
or to stop and smell the flowers…
#throwbackthursday to our sunny trip to the RBG! Having a cold in a rainy January can really give you the winter blues, so I’ve been planning some summer trips to lift my spirits! Can’t wait to share our warmer adventures 😄 #tbt #royalbotanicalgardens #flowerchild #miagrace #instagramdogs #dogsofcanada #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #instadog #ilovemydog #gsd #germanshepherdsofinstagram #germanshepherd #shepherdmix #husky #huskiesofinstagram #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog #muttskickbutt #weeklyfluff #opttoadopt #adoptdontshop #muttsofinstagram #dogsoninstagram #dogs_of_instagram #dailydog #happygirl #shepsky
One of my new year’s resolutions is to post more frequently, and Truffle’s is to eat more snacks, so here is our first recipe of the year!
This cookie is loaded with healthy ingredients: carrots, flax seed, coconut oil (keeps our coats pretty!) and arugula, which is nutritious for dogs, but should be given in small doses, and preferably cooked.
2 large carrots
1 cup arugula
2 tbsp flax seeds
1 large egg
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of water
Preheat your oven to 350F. Grind your flax seeds in a food processor, then put them into the bowl of your stand mixer, or a large mixing bowl. Chop the arugula in the same food processor (no need to clean in-between), followed by the carrots. Add your egg and coconut oil, and mix thoroughly. Add the flour a bit at a time, and then the 1/2 cup of water.
Once your dough comes together, roll out to about 1/3 inch thick, and cut out into desired shapes. Bake for 30 min. Let cool, and enjoy!
As with all homemade treats, keep in the fridge, or freeze and defrost as needed.
