There's no reason why our dog's need to miss out on the charm of chocolate. Here's my special recipe that can be enjoyed by our dogs all year long.
Makes 6 large or 18 small chocolates
1/4 cup (62.5 ml/ 2 fl oz) coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup (60g / 2oz) coconut flour
2 teaspoons carob powder
In a bowl, combine coconut oil, coconut flour and carob powder.
Pour the mixture into your dog’s favourite chocolate mould and place in freezer to set.
Store in a refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to a month.
Note: if coconult oil is new to your dog, start at a dailiy dose of 1/4 teaspoon and gradually increase. Research suggests feeding dogs 1 teaspoon per 4.5kg (10 lbs) of body weight, daily.
