It’s International Peanut Butter Lover’s Day.
Did you even this was a thing? I did not. I was browsing one of those websites that lists like a million and twelve obscure holidays and found it. I don’t know what goes down at your house, but at Casa de Kolchak EVERYDAY is Peanut Butter Lover’s Day. We adore the stuff. It’s just so rich and gooey and peanutty. We go through a ridiculous amount considering that not many people live here. (Peanut butter and black current jelly sandwiches are a proper dinner for humans right? RIGHT?!)
It’s not just a good PB&J that gets me excited. It’s all things peanut butter. Last week, I made chocolate cupcakes with banana filling & peanut butter frosting and I thought I was going to DIE from pure delight.
One of my favourite human treats is peanut butter fudge.
It’s so good. Sooooooo good. I make this recipe all the time. Tonight, I got it into my head that I was going to make a dog friendly version. I was surprised how EASY it was! This recipe has only 4 ingredients, takes 5 minutes to mix up and 30 minutes to bake. If you’re as
lazy crafty as I am, you can even mix them up right in a silicone cake pan. No dishes! Yesssssss!
Peanut Butter “Fudge” for Dogs
1 cup natural, unsweetened peanut butter
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 cup gluten free flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill) or all purpose flour if your dog is grain tolerant
How we do:
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a medium bowl (or right in a 9×9 silicone cake pan), mix together peanut butter, eggs and yogurt. Make sure you get it all completely mixed together. Sift in the flour, stirring until combined.
If you’re using a metal cake pan, line it with parchment paper and fill with peanut butter-y mix goodness. Use the back of a spoon (or if you’re me, your hands) to flatten out the mix evenly in the pan.
Bake for 350F for 30 – 35 minutes.
While the fudge is baking, clean up! Kolchak recommends having your canine kitchen helpers get involved by licking the leftover peanut butter off the spoons and measuring cups.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Cut into small squares.
Enjoy! (I know my dogs did!)
