“Although my dog ADORES Keen and Force, she despises the very existence of Thrive (must be the Quinoa??). Having learned of her abhorrence only after purchasing and opening a 10-lb box, I’ve been forced to devise clever strategies to convince her to eat it. One thing I do is “sneak” it into her Keen/Force about ¼ to ½ C at a time – that usually works.

The best use, however, is to make cookies using the following recipe I created only this morning. She LOVES these cookies.

1 ¼ C organic oat flour
1 ¼ C organic brown rice flour
1 C rehydrated Thrive
1 egg

Mix all ingredients, adding equal amounts of oat flour and brown rice flour or water to create a semi-stiff dough. Roll out between two sheets of waxed paper/parchment paper/plastic wrap. Cut into shapes, bake at 375 for about 30-35 minutes (or until lightly browned on both sides – I turned mine over after the first 25 minutes) cool on rack. Store in fridge for up to 2 weeks.”
