Brianne DiSylvester, owner of Get Lick’d Organic Dog Treats and Change Agent featured in today’s Ask Umbra video, was kind enough to give us this tasty treat recipe for your furry friends. Enjoy, dearests, and let me know how your pups like the muffins in the comments below (FYI, you can eat them too, but they may not be up to your palate standards).

Fill a pot with an inch of water. Heat on high. In a bowl, combine carob chips, peanut butter, and water. Place the bowl on top of the pot so the steam and heat melt the carob chips (a double boiler). Whisk occasionally for a minute or two until the carob chips are completely melted. Remove the bowl (careful, it’s hot), and whisk in the brown rice flour, baking powder, and vanilla. Once combined, whisk in an egg. Heat the oven to 350 degrees, and fill the mini muffin tin cups 3/4 of the way to the top. Bake for 12 minutes for the soft version, which lasts about a week (perfect for pooch parties). For a crunchy version that lasts three to four months, place the mini muffins on a cookie sheet and bake an additional three to four hours at 200 degrees.
