Almond Butter Poppers

Ingredients

1 cup almond butter

1 cup milk

1 cup oat flour (sifted) or 1 cup instant oats

1 cup ground beef, cooked.

1 cup Honest Kitchen Verve™ dehydrated dog food

1/2 cup warm water

2 tsp ground flax seed meal (optional)

¼ cup plain yogurt

½ cup dried cranberries

What to do

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

To make the dough, mix the almond butter, milk, oat flour, and ground flax seeds in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix Verve with warm water & allow to rehydrate.

Combine the two and knead until soft and lubricated.

Flatten out the dough to be cut with cookie cutters or roll into small balls (poppers).

Bake cookies at 350°F for 15-20 minutes until firm to touch.

For the topping, mix the yogurt and cranberries together and stir well.

Pour this mixture onto the cookies and spread with a knife after they have been baked.
