I’m not going to say my dogs are spoiled…but they do eat very well. I’m a professional foodie and believe in nourishing my body with high quality, plant-based food. So to me, it only makes sense that I do the same for my fur babies.

Today I’m going to show you how to make a simple and easy dog-friendly treat: Puppy Chow! No, not the traditional cereal coated in chocolate and nut butter and powdered sugar. This version is dog-friendly and delicious – at least, that’s what my pups tell me.

INGREDIENTS FOR PUPPY CHOW

This puppy chow is made from only 3 simple ingredients that both you and your pup can love:

  • Wild Earth Dog Food: I care a lot about what I feed my pups, which is why I choose to feed them Wild Earth. This vet-developed formula is made from high-quality, sustainable, and plant based ingredients. It has a 31% protein base and is packed with superfoods (like oats, chickpeas and sweet potato) and all the nutrients your dog needs to be happy, healthy, and well-fed!
  • Peanut Butter: a thin layer of nut butter helps to coat the dog kibble and make it sticky. If you have a nut allergy sunflower seed butter will work as well.
  • Powdered Coconut Milk: this pup-friendly ingredient replaces powdered sugar and coats each piece of kibble to give us the classic Puppy Chow look we are going for. It’s definitely more of a specialty item – I found it at my natural foods store, but you can also purchase it online. Oat flour would also work well here, though the final color will be a little darker!

This Puppy Chow is not intended to replace your dogs regular food – just stick to plain ol’ Wild Earth for that 😉 We like to use it for fun (and small) treats after walks, or when we are training our dogs. It keeps for 2 to 3 weeks in the fridge, so you don’t have to worry about it going bad either.
