Proud Dog Chef

Aug 20, 2019 | Pets, Treat Recipes

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!  I’ve been wanting to tell you about a cookbook that I purchased called The Proud Dog Chef written by The Proud Dog Mom.  She has a blog called that I’ve been following and really enjoy reading her articles.  I found her through another blogger from Pittsburgh called Wear Wag Repeat by Tori Mistick at  Their blogs are unique and different in their own way and each are very passionate about their pups as I am about Jake and Maggie.  Sooo, I wanted to share this cookbook with you and will be making recipes from the book along the way to blog with all of you!!!  
Proud Dog Mom shares the ultimate collection of healthy dog treats that are bound to make even the pickiest pup’s tail wag.  Leaving behind questionable ingredients and red-flag preservatives, dog treats have never tasted so good!  Filled with 60 gluten-free and grain-free recipes that range from biscuits and cupcakes to jerky and veggie chips, your canine companion is in for a real treat!  You can find this cookbook on Amazon for $28.50.

Protein Power Bites recipe taken from the Proud Dog Chef cookbook


  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • Pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup all natural applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
  2. Line one baking sheet with parchment paper.  Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add quinoa flour, coconut flour, turmeric, and black pepper.  Whisk to combine.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk egg.
  5. Add applesauce, water, and coconut oil to egg.  Mix together until combined.
  6. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together with a spoon or fork.
  7. Using your hand, knead dough for several minutes, eventually forming a dough ball.  Dough will feel dry at first, just keep folding and kneading.
  8. Sandwich dough between two layers of parchment paper.
  9. With a rolling pin, carefully roll dough to about 1/4 inch thick.
  10. Stamp with cookie cutters and place biscuits on baking sheet.
  11. Bake for 25 minutes.
  12. After the timer goes off, remove biscuits from oven, flip them over, and bake for another 5 minutes.
  13. Transfer biscuits to a wire rack to cool.
Although I have never met Proud Dog Mom, if I did, I would tell her that her cookbook is very well thought out, informative, colorful and the recipes look delicious.  If you try this recipe, let me know how it turned out.
