Pumpkin Flaxseed Dog Treats from the Whip it Up Cookbook by Billy Green (Wit and Vinegar).
Wit and Vinegar’s Whip it Up cookbook is finally out! Remember when Billy Green and I talked about the process of making this on our podcast?!? It all seemed so far away back then. I am so happy for him that all of his hard work is paying off right now.
Now the book is real! It releases on October 13th – you can buy it by clicking here (FYI that’s an affiliate link). I am in love with the cover. As you may remember, Billy is a graphic designer. So you know the whole book is going to be easy on the eyes.
Look at these gorgeous photos he has taken of his spectacular, colorful, sprinkly food.
There’s so much fun I don’t even know where to start. I love how bright and colorful (and easy) all these recipes are. Breakfast? Tacos? Popsicles?
Let’s just begin at the back, since Julius can vouch for how good these dog biscuits are. They are Pumpkin Flaxseed Dog Treats, made from pumpkin puree. For actual human delights, follow the blogger book tour via #whipitupcookbook on social media. Congratulations to you Billy! You did it!
Recipe from "Whip it Up!" Cookbook by Billy Green
- 1 Tablespoon Ground Flaxseed
- 5 Tablespoons Water
- 2 Tablespoons Organic, Sugar-Free Peanut Butter
- 125 g (1/2 cup) Pumpkin Puree
- 350 g (2 cups) Brown Rice Flour
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
- In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the flaxseed and water, then let it sit for 2 minutes
- Whisk in the peanut butter until completely smooth, followed by the pumpkin
- Add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes together. Use your hands to kneed the dough, moulding it into a ball. If it seems too dry add an additional tablespoon of water.
- Roll the dough out between 2 sheets of parchment paper to 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) thickness.
- Use a cookie cutter or small biscuit cutter to cut out shapes, then place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Re-roll scrapes as needed: you should get anywhere from 24-36 treats, depending on the size of the treat.
- Bake for 30 minutes, until lightly golden and dry to the touch.
- Let cool completely before giving to your dog. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
