I shared with you some of the benefits of our juice fast, but we are not the only ones who benefit from our juicing. Basil is enjoying it too.
I have used juicing pulp in baking breads and muffins before. Now while we are fasting, Basil is enjoying homemade treats made from juice pulp! I have made a few flavors, and while Basil is not partial, I think these are his favorite.
Who doesn’t like apples and peanut butter? Classic.
If you aren’t a juicer, you can use chopped or shredded apples, maybe reducing to 3/4 cup.
apple & peanut butter dog treats
1 cup apple pulp or shredded apple (I juiced 3 apples)
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown rice flour (plus additional for kneading, rolling)
1 egg (or flax, chia or Ener-G replacer)
Core and juice 3 apples, reserving pulp. Combine apple pulp and peanut butter, then add egg and flour.
Basil loves these! They are soft out of the oven and as they cool they become crisper but not too crunchy. Cooking for another 5-7 minutes makes them crunchy (this is what I did with a carrot batch).
These are so quick and easy to make, I like the short healthy ingredient list for Basil, and I’m using most of the pulp when we juice, which makes me happy too.
Basil says Happy Tuesday – *wag wag wag*
