Even the dog is gluten free...

Poor pitiful pup.  In the last four months, she seemed to be the only one who got to have glutenous foods in the house.  Sadly, those heady days are coming to an end.  Our dog, Chumley, and the Bee have a very sweet relationship.  "PupPup" was her first word and she loves to run up and pet Chums whenever she can.  Chums loves her back and gives Bee more kisses than anyone else.  Between kisses and dog biscuit crumbs, we've discovered that Chums is making the Bee sick.   Whaa whaa whaaaaaaa...

This weekend I whipped up some super easy GF dog treats.  This recipe is adapted from one found on the whole foods website.  Despite the despondent expression above, Chums approves.

Gluten Free Dog Treats

1 Banana
3 Tbsp Peanut Butter
2/3 Cup GF Oats
1 Cup Almond Meal (Trader Joes has big bags for $3.99) 
A few shakes of dried parsley
1 egg

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.  When combined, drop by rounded spoonful on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  If desired, flatten cookies with the back of the spoon.  These treats do not spread, so the finished product will come out of the oven looking like they went in.  Bake at 300 degrees for 30-40 minutes.  Store in an air tight container.
