We have returned to volunteering at SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary! As you can see, we’re very excited about this. So we thought we would share some photos of our first day back with our animal friends.

You can come out and meet them yourselves on May 18th (this Sunday) from noon to 4 pm. Admission fee is $10, kids 5 and under are free. Tour the farm, hang out with the animals and hear their stories, and tasty vegan food will be sold by Shimmy Shack.

We tried this recipe from veganprairiefood.wordpress.com a couple of months ago and we have yet to have ANY dog reject them. We found that the dough was really great to work with and it made the apartment smell fantastic while it was baking.

100% of our test subjects (Ozzy, BeeBee, Brutis, and multiple friends’ dogs) adore these treats and recommend them to your furry friends!

Vegan Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats.

Vegan Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats.

 

Ingredients:

(makes about 25 small cookies)

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy. we used creamy this time.)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (canned or fresh — not pumpkin pie mix)
1 cup non-dairy milk (We used almond.)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 F and place  a rack in the center of the oven. Lightly grease a baking sheet. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Set aside.

In another bowl combine the  peanut butter, pumpkin, and non-dairy milk. Add the flour mixture, in small batches and mix well.

Knead the dough two to three times on a lightly floured surface. With a rolling pin, roll the dough out about 1/4 inch in thickness and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter. I used the rim of a shot glass.

Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.

Enjoy! We’re off to try another recipe!

So it would seem that since the dog treat recalls we’ve been baking practically non-stop. Friends and family have been asking for recipes or for us to bake the snacks for them so that they do not (or can reduce the amount) that they buy commercially made dog treats. We’re happy to oblige and thankfully people are willing to pay for them.

(By the way, here is a link to the list of recalls. http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-food-recalls/ )
