A fan of ours sent us a recipe for these fun St. Patrick’s themed Shamrock dog treats! So of course we had to try them!
- 1 cup of whole wheat flour
- 1 cup of cooked peas (Frozen will be greener, but canned works)
- 1 cup of spinach
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 egg
- tsp sea salt
- 1 additional egg for egg wash (to make them shiny)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the dry ingredients in a big bowl (salt and flour). Puree the Peas and the Spinach together. You can use a blender or food processor for this. Add the green mix to the dry mix, and then add 1 egg. Blend it all together until it forms a nice dough. Cover you bowl, or wrap your dough and chill for 20 – 30 minutes. After it’s chilled, sprinkle it with a bit of flour and roll it out to between 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes! After you place them on a cookie sheet you can lightly egg wash them to make them shiny. Back for 20 – 30 minutes and enjoy!
