It’s been awhile since Frankie has appeared in one of my videos. His face, I mean. Trust me, you hear the click-clack of his paws all the time, even if you don’t realize it! So it’s high time we do a recipe for this little nugget.

Seriously, how can you resist this face and not want to give him the best of everything? He is one helluva trooper. From tick-infested sickly thing found wandering a mountain in Korea to surgeries on his back and mouth to a stomach that is growing ever-sensitive as he gets older, I will do everything in my power to keep him healthy and strong. Recently, we stopped buying store treats and started making these. So simple. Four ingredients + a lot of love — that’s all you need!

Recipe:

2 cups rolled oats, blended into powder-like form
1 medium sweet potato, chopped and boiled
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (no sugar or oils added)
2 tsp baking powder

Combine all ingredients in a food processor until a rough dough forms. It should stick together but not stick to your hands. Working in batches, roll out dough on a cutting board. No flouring of the board or rolling pin necessary with this recipe! Use a bone-shaped cookie cutter and place biscuits on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 375F for a full 25-30 minutes until golden and crispy. Let cool before storing. The key is to ensure that all moisture is removed so that they can keep for a few weeks.

Trust me with this recipe — you will have one happy pup on your hands!

Happy #nationaldogday to my #furbaby Frankie! He devoured these homemade treats (video and recipe coming soon)! Sweet potato, peanut butter & oats - so easy. Follow his adventures @frankiequitefrankly! #dogsrule #dogstagram #instadog
