Best In Treats

As seen on “Best In Show”

Ingredients

  • 2 cups dark rye flour
  • TSP cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 TBS natural peanut butter
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 1½ TBS melted coconut oil (or canola oil)
  • For “chocolate” biscuits: ½ cup of carob powder

Recipe:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

A stand mixer or food processor works best for this recipe, although you can mix by hand.

First, you need 2 cups of dark rye flour (you could also use spelt or whole wheat ). Next, a teaspoon of cinnamon. Then add 1/2 cup of water, 1½ tablespoons of melted coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of smooth natural peanut butter, and one egg.

This is a wet dough, which means it will roll out nicely. You just need to be liberal with the flour on the counter and sprinkle some on top. Roll them out. You want these to be between ¼ inch to a ½ inch thick. Cut into shapes. Hand form the cannolis and pretzels.

Bake for 15-20 minutes.

To make a “chocolate” looking biscuit dough, by simply repeat the same recipe but add a ½ cup of carob powder after the flour. NEVER USE COCOA OR CHOCOLATE.

 

Icing and Dip/Drizzle Ingredients

  • ½ cup – cup carob chips
  • ½ cup yogurt
  • 2 TBS peanut butter
  • Water
  • Optional: TBS coconut oil

Recipe:

Now for the fun part. This is not difficult, but requires some patience. First, you need to melt the carob chips in either a double boiler, the microwave, or a fondue pot. While that’s melting, make the peanut butter yogurt icing. Simply take a half a cup of plain yogurt and add 2 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter and mix together. This will harden a bit as it dries.

You need a large piece of parchment paper for the treats to dry on. Use a pastry bag to place filling on a bone and add another bone on top to make a bone cream sandwich. Squeeze some icing into ends of cannolis.

Once the carob is melted, it’s a bit thick to dip and drizzle, so you need to thin it out with a bit of water and some coconut oil. You don’t have to add the coconut oil — we just love the health benefits, and it adds a bit more shine to the dip.

Dip the cookies and pretzels.

Once you’re done dipping, it’s time to drizzle. Put some of the carob into a pastry bag and go crazy!!
