Make This Sweet Peeps Dog Recipe While You’re Stuck at Home

sweet peeps dog recipe

Springtime conjures up the image of colored eggs and bunnies — or, if you have a sweet tooth, Easter candy. One of my all-time favorites growing up was Peeps — those delightful, sugar-coated, marshmallow bunnies and chicks in amazingly neon colors. While these are clearly not dog treats, I wanted something equally memorable for my pups. And so these peep-inspired dog treats were born.

You can find licensed Peeps cookie cutters or silicone molds, or use any cutter or mold to shape these adorable peep treats

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter (without xylitol)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2½ cups rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened, finely shredded coconut
  • You can also use a little bit of natural food coloring or a touch of beet juice if you want to give it a fun peep-like color.

Directions:

In a food processor, combine all ingredients except the coconut.

Pulse until oats are ground up a bit and everything is combined.

For shaping, you can choose any of these options:

  • Scoop the ingredients into a silicone mold, and cover the back of the mold with the shredded coconut.
  • Chill for 10 minutes, then roll between parchment paper and cut out shapes with cookie cutter. Sprinkle with coconut
  • Roll into balls and immediately roll into the coconut.

Chill for 30 to 40 minutes before serving to your dog. Keep leftovers refrigerated.
