As Christmas approaches, we try to think of ways to show our pets just how much they mean to us involving them in our festive fun.
But sometimes the greatest pleasures can be had when we create memories as well, and so to celebrate the release of 'The Christmas Guest' written by Daisy Bell and inspired by a dog named Max, we're sharing a quick and simple Christmas treat recipe with you today from the book which we think your dog will love.
Teddy’s Favourite Christmas Treats (only for dogs)
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
To make 30 delicious doggy treats, you will need:
320g of whole wheat flour or gluten-free flour
100g of plain rolled oats
60g of grated apple (no seeds)
250g of smooth or crunchy peanut butter
40g of grated carrot
1tsp of baking powder
One large egg or 60ml of warm water
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
In a medium bowl add the dry ingredients and mix together. In a small bowl add the remaining ingredients and stir together until combined.
Transfer the contents of the small bowl into the dry ingredients and combine the two until a soft dough is formed. Lightly dust a work surface with flour and transfer the dough the surface.

Use a rolling pin to roll the dough to roughly 2cm width. Use Christmas themed cookie cutters to cut the dough.
Place the shapes on a lined baking tray and place them in the oven. After 10 minutes of baking, flip the biscuits and bake for another 10 minutes.
When biscuits are brown and cooked through, remove from oven and allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Finally, feed to your pampered pooch!
