Valentines Day... It's not just for humans!

I mean, it makes sense! Dogs are the most faithful and loyal beings after all. That doesn’t mean that our kitties don’t deserve something special too, because we know how much we love our four legged, whiskered friends. Why not take this day to show your pet how much you love and appreciate them with something as simple as a homemade, delicious treat?

We found some awesome Valentines Day Recipes for animals and put them all in one place for you to check out…

For Pups

Cranberry Hearts

2 Free Range Eggs
1 and 1/2 Cups Almond Flour
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
3-4 Tablespoons of Coconut Flour
1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries

Preheat oven to 330 degrees Fahrenheit.
Beat 2 eggs and set aside.
Combine almond flour, coconut oil and dried cranberries together in a bowl.
Once combined, pour in the eggs and mix together with your hands. The dough will be very wet.
Begin adding in your coconut flour one TBSP at a time, mixing in each one after added. You want to achieve a consistency that is easy to roll and not super sticky. This will require between 3-4 TBSP depending on your brand of flour and size of your eggs. The dough should easily form a ball.
Roll your dough and cut out the treats using bite sized cookie cutters.
Place your treats on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until crisp.
Makes roughly 20 treats. Let them cool down- let your pup enjoy!
