Bake a batch of these tasty biscuits to celebrate Earth Day with your furbaby! They’re made with a host of nourishing, unprocessed ingredients, including brown rice flour, oat flour, arrowroot starch, applesauce, flax and all-natural powdered peanut butter. Add chlorophyll and blue butterfly pea powder to naturally infuse these treats with vibrant earth-like color.
For crunchy cookies, store them in an airtight container in a cool dry place (will last 4 to 6 weeks). If your pup prefers the soft-baked variety, seal them in an airtight container in the refrigerator instead. They can also be frozen for up to three months. Keep in mind that every day is Earth Day! So make these delicious plant-based treats all year long.
Peanut Butter Earth Day Dog Treats
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or non-stick baking mat.
In medium bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Mix well.
Divide dough. Sprinkle butterfly pea powder onto one half. Empty chlorophyll capsules onto the other half. Blend each thoroughly until the color is smooth. (If dough feels too dry, add ½ teaspoon water for easier blending.)
Separate dough into small chunks.
Press the different colored pieces together into a ball. Roll dough out into ¼-in. thickness.
Use cookie cutter to cut out circles, then arrange on lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 25-35 minutes or until firm to touch, and bottoms are golden brown. Note: For softer treats, remove a few minutes early.
Transfer to wire rack and let cool completely.
- Repeated rolling and reforming will eventually muddy the marbling effect, set some solid-color dough aside to back roll in if needed.
- *For a darker green, use three chlorophyll capsules.
- **Add more butterfly pea powder to deepen the blue color if desired.
