1 cup oat flour (porridge oats which have been whizzed in a food processor until very fine)

1 cup rice flour

½ cup grated parmesan

1 cup tightly packed spinach leaves

1 egg

½ cup of water

  • Puree spinach in a food processor until smooth.  Add the remaining ingredients and continue to process until fully combined.
  • Roll the dough until balls are approx. 1” in diameter and place on a baking tray. (TIP:  Roll the dough out and use cookie cutters to make your own shapes or even cut out the letters to spell their name!)
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes at 180o. Remove and cool on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container in the fridge. Pawfect for a pet party that is sure to be a howler.

2 cup oat flour

3 eggs

½ cup honey

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

2 cups pureed carrots

¼ safflower oil

1tsp vanilla essence

  • Combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Place cupcake papers into cupcake baking tray – spoon mixture into each paper, filling almost to the top as it won’t rise too much
  • Bake for 10-15 mins for mini cupcakes, or 20-25 mins for regular sized cupcakes, in the oven at 180o until a skewer put into the middle comes out clean. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
  • TIP: For an added treat, whip 8 oz of low fat cream cheese with 2 tbsp honey until fluffy to make ‘frosting’ that can be spread on top of the cakes once they’ve cooled.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

SNACK/ NIBBLES – Homemade jerky

450g ground beef mince

  • Puree the mince in a food processor until it’s a smooth paste.
  • Line a shallow baking tray with parchment paper (TIP: makes clean up easier!) and spread the paste evenly across the sheet.
  • Bake on a very low heat (100o) for 2 hours with the oven door ajar to allow all the moisture to escape.
  • Remove from the oven and use a pizza slice or knife to cut into strips/ individual sized portions.
  • Place back on the tray and bake for a further 1-2 hours until the pieces are dry and leathery.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge until the pet party guests have arrived.Doggy Party
