Organic Dog Biscuits: Yes Please!

apple pie biscuits

I recently came across this amazing bakery that sells organic dog biscuits. We constantly hear all the fuss about eating healthy for ourselves, but what about those furry friends of ours? They should be fed the best food as well that will help them live long, healthy lives. If I had the time, I would make these myself but I will leave it to Chloe’s Bakery. Such a great concept and the prices are definitely reasonable. Thank you so much for sending me a free sample- my Khloe LOVED them! =)

This is their story:

“Chloe is a 1 year old Yorkshire Terrier. I started making her all-natural, organic biscuits because I want her to live a long and healthy life,I believe dogs deserve REAL wholesome healthy food just like us. I see so many dog treats out on store shelf’s that contain chemicals,preservatives, or water-y broths,that is just not healthy period.I wanted to make a change.

So that’s when I decided I’d take my love for baking & cooking with fresh seasonal,organic ingredients, and Chloe’s love for treats and start an all-Natural,organic dog biscuit bakery. Right in the heart of Westchester County in New York. We bake the biscuits by hand in small batches,with the finest ingredients we can find. All Natural with no chemicals,no preservatives,or water y-broths as flavoring. Just REAL simple wholesome human grade ingredients for your four legged furry friend.”

You can purchase the biscuits here. You can also find Chloes Bakery on instagram @ChessDevino. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Old Fashioned Oats (Gluten Free if needed)
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, loosely packed
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (I didn’t use because I was out)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.

Toss the oatmeal, almonds, and coconut together a sheet pan and bake for 10-12 minutes. stirring occasionally, until lightly brown. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in the wheat germ.

Place the butter, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt in small saucepan on medium heat. Cook and stir for a minute and then pour over toasted oatmeal, apricots and cranberries and stir well.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Wet your fingers and lightly press ingredients into pan. Bake for 25 to 30 more minutes until golden brown. Cool for at least 2 hours. When cool, cut into little squares. Serve at room temperature.

Keep in mind-the more dried fruit you use the chewier the bars will be. I used mango and they were pretty chewy! Good luck…these are good!

Pumpkin Sugar Cookies…Happy Halloween!

{Pumpkin Shaped Sugar Cookie}

Happy Halloween! I have been on a baking spree the last 2 weeks, and these cookies are my latest creation. Made from scratch (frosting as well) pumpkin shaped sugar cookies. With the help of my sister, who is beyong crafty in all areas of craft- she showed me how this piece of art is done. We started by making the sugar cookies, baking and letting cool. Then we made the royal icing from scratch w/ meringue powder. We outlined the cookies, let them sit, and them filled them in all the way. Now I completely understand why a cookie at Whole Foods or any bakery for that matter is $4.95. The effort and the time it takes to make is worth every penny. Let’s clarify really quick- I would rather make anything I eat from scratch than buy from the store. After all, if you are going to go through the trouble of making it…you should be able to enjoy it! (Just not the whole batch.)

Hope you have fun trick-or-treating tonight. Did you make any fun cookies for the holiday?
