Delicious peanut butter with a hint of blackstrap molasses and a droolworthy carob drop "kiss" make these downright irresistible to my boys. Meet me under the mistletoe! Puppy kisses for kisses accepted.


Molasses "Kiss" Carob Drop Dog Treats 


🥄 Treat Ingredients:

1 egg
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
1/4 cup room temperature water
Approximately 1 cup brown rice flour
Miniature dog-friendly carob drops/chips

🥄 Making the Treats: 

Preheat your oven to 180C (or local equivalent) and gather together your baking ingredients and materials.

Combine peanut butter, egg, molasses, and water in a mixing bowl.  Incrementally add flour, mixing into a cohesive workable dough.  The amount of flour required will vary depending on your individual ingredients and any optional add-ins or substitutions. Missed the mark? No worries! You can add a little bit of water, a small amount of olive oil, or additional flour to adjust consistency if/as needed. Rest dough (optional).

Hand roll into small bite-sized balls and place on a prepared baking pan. Pus a mini carob drop into the top of each ball for the kiss. Bake for approximately 10-15 minutes. Cooking time will vary with shape/size, so keep an eye on the oven. Cool before serving and storage.

Tips and Tricks:
  • Peanut butter and molasses can be particularly tricky ingredients to measure perfectly. Don't stress about it - close enough is good enough! There can be big differences in consistency of peanut butters as well. Little variations like that as well as variations in egg size, temperatures, etc are all  part of why we work incrementally when mixing our doggy doughs. 
  • Go natural or take care when when shopping to avoid artificial sweeteners in ingredients peanut butter when used for your dogs - xylitol is particularly dangerous for dogs.
  • Carob drops are often sweetened, whether you are buying them from the human baking good section or specially marketed dog treats. Many are a combination of sugars and oils with carob powder, some are unsweetened carob and oil mixtures.  Either way, there's nothing wrong with an occasional special treat, but always read your ingredients to know what you're buying and eating/sharing.
  • Not into carob? Press with a fork to flatten the balls or used as a roll-and-cut dough.
  • These treats are best consumed within a couple of days from baking or frozen for longer storage.
