A real departure from typical dog treats, this recipe is fun to make, tastes delicious, and is good for either humans or dogs. Each ingredient is laden with antioxidants or other important nutrients that support the immune system, especially during stress, chronic illness or aging. As an alternative to the wheat germ, yeast, kelp and vitamin C, you could use The Honest Kitchen’s Invigor™ antioxidant supplement if you prefer. You will need a small size muffin pan and small paper cups for this recipe.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1/4 cup flax meal (or ground flaxseed)
1/2 cup dried or fresh blueberries
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon kelp powder
1 teaspoon vitamin C powder (optional)
2 large free-range eggs
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat the oven to 350°. Combine flaxseed, blueberries, wheat germ, nutritional yeast, kelp powder, and vitamin C powder (if using) in a mixing bowl; fold together to combine thoroughly.
Add eggs, yogurt, and oil, and stir again to form a thick batter. Pour into mini muffin pans lined with paper cups until about half full.
Bake for about 25 minutes until firm to touch. Cool thoroughly before serving. Store in an airtight refrigerator for up to a week. The muffins can also be frozen, if desired.
