Talking Grain Free Halloween Bon Bons

Pet nutritionist and founder of The Honest Kitchen, Lucy Postins, has created a delicious recipe made with pumpkin and real beef to help pet parents celebrate All Hallows Eve with their furry friends. Lucy’s Halloween Bon Bons are quick and easy to make, and use common ingredients found in most people’s kitchen so you know pets are getting a healthy treat that’s safe enough for even humans to eat! You can view a step-by-step tutorial of Lucy preparing the Halloween Bon Bons here: http://www.youtube.com/user/HonestKitchen,

These treats are quick and easy to make and are suitable for most sensitive pets. Quinoa and Buckwheat are not true grains and are very well tolerated even by grain-allergic pets. Note: Quinoa flour has quite a strong taste and aroma which most pets love but we’ve found some animals take awhile to get used to it. If you have a fussy pup, we suggest the Buckwheat alternative.

1 Cup Force (dry)
½ Cup Ground Beef
1 Cup Canned or Cooked Pumpkin
1 Egg
Small handful of Quinoa or Buckwheat Flour
What To Do
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix Equal parts of Force and Pumpkin, add the Beef, Quinoa flour and egg and mix until well blended.
Shape into balls and place it on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes or until slightly golden on the outside, but soft in the middle. Cool, then call in the hounds.

For an extra burst of healthy stuff, add in a teaspoon of powdered greens or spirulina.
For extra flavor, try adding a little sliced ham or some grated cheese.

Don’t forget – even though Halloween is great fun for humans, it can be a frightening and potentially dangerous time for pets. Trick-or-Treating is not a good activity for most pets since they may become frightened by unusual sights and sounds. Make sure your pet is secured before answering the door in case they take fright and try to escape, and be especially careful that they have an opportunity to raid the Halloween Candy; chocolate in particular can be fatal.
