Valentine Pawcakes

Valentine Pawcakes
Skill level: for graduates of L’Academie de Cuisine (kidding! Easy!)
One container thawed Pawgevity Frozen Formula (choose your protein – you won’t be using whole container)
Pawgevity Chewz (one package)
Raw, unsalted: walnuts, almonds, sunflower or pumpkin seeds (or any combo you wish – we used local walnuts)
Plain yogurt
Strawberry or sweet red bell pepper

We found this neat mini heart cake pan at our local craft store but any mini muffin pan will do the job.

Take Chewz and nuts and crush and mix together.
Place a layer of Chewz/nut mixture in bottom of pan (no oil necessary).
Add raw Formula to fill and pat in well.
Add another layer of the Chewz/nut mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Cool and remove from pan.
Garnish with a small dollop of yogurt and slice of strawberry or sweet red pepper and serve.

U Stole My Heart Valentine Cookies

U Stole My Heart Valentine Cookies
Skill Level: Simple
Same as above, with the addition of organic coconut or extra virgin olive oil.

We used these heart shaped cookie cutters – if you don’t have any, you can form patties by hand and cut a heart shape out with a knife.

Roll out thawed Formula, thickly (about 1/2″ thick).
Take cookie cutter and grease with oil.
Use cookie cutter to cut out hearts, then press Chewz/nut/seed mixture firmly on top.
Remove cookie cutter and place hearts on oiled cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for ten minutes.
Cool and serve.
