While listening to the radio on the way to work this morning, I heard about a tasty sounding recipe for chocolate brownies that are OK for dogs to eat. It’s not real chocolate, it’s carob. What a great idea to make something special for Kaylee. I hope my vet is NOT reading this. She’s on a diet… SSSHhhhh.
Putting good old Google to work, I found this recipe. It comes from a site called http://www.seefido.com.
I’ll post the recipe, but you might want to visit their site if you have a dog. Lots of little tidbits of helpful info.
1 and ½ cups of all purpose flour
3 tablespoons of carob powder
½ teaspoon of baking powder
½ cup of canola oil
½ cup of honey
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Oil an 8-inch baking pan with vegetable oil.
2. Use a large bowl and mix the flour, carob powder and baking powder together, then set the mixture on the side. Then in a small bowl beat the oil and the honey, and then add the eggs one at a time by beating them as you incorporate them into the mixture. Next, mix the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and stir well until you have obtained a homogenized mixture.
3. Spread the batter into the pan and smoothen the top out with a spatula. Put it in the oven and bake for 20 t 25 minutes or until you notice that the brownies start to pull away from the sides of the baking pan.
4. Once they are ready, allow them to cool before serving them out.
Store leftovers in an airtight container for no more than 4 days, or wrap well in freezer wrap and store in the freezer for no more than 2 months.
My Corgi, Kaylee, needs to lose a ‘little bit’ of winter padding so she is on a diet. This is an utterly lunatic idea from her point of view, but she really needs to drop a few pounds.
To help reward her, I thought I might make some of these when she gets down to her swimsuit weight. 😉
