7. No-Bake Snowball Bites
If you want something to remind you of winter, then try these amazing No-Bake Snowball Bites! This is a no-bake recipe, so you can make it where and whenever you want as long as you have all of the ingredients.
To make No-Bake Snowball Bites, you’ll need:
- 1 - 2 c. plain (unsweetened) shredded coconut
- ½ cup of coconut flour
- 1 cup of oat flour
- 1 cup of plain nonfat yogurt
- ¼ cup of peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (the kind made just for dogs)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Pro Tip: You don’t need to buy oat flour! If you have some regular rolled oats, you can pop those into a food processor to make your own oat flour.
Once you’ve gathered your ingredients, it’s time to start prepping these homemade dog treats! Start by getting a nice, big bowl and filling it with the shredded coconut. Now, you’re ready to start.
If you have a food processor, add all of the ingredients except for the shredded coconut. Use the pulse function until the dough is nice and gooey, like clay.
If you don’t have a food processor, then you’ll have to mix this by hand or with an electric mixer. Again, you’ll want to make sure that the dough is a nice consistency.
Once the dough is the right consistency, roll it into balls. Adjust these as needed to suit your pup’s size. Smaller dogs get smaller bites, and later pups get bigger servings!
Roll the balls into the bowl of shredded coconut. This creates the “snow” effect for your Snowball Bites.
- Serve as is or refrigerate.
Keep in mind that this recipe will produce a few cookies, so you’ll probably end up with more than your pup should eat in one sitting. Fortunately, these wintery bites last for a week in the fridge, and up to a month in the freezer.
