Fleas Navidad Nibblers

Here is a fun recipe to make for all your doggie family members for the Holiday -- hey, you bake for your human family, so go ahead and bake for your doggie family too!

My dear high school friend Judi Giangiulio sent it to me -- she has 3 rescued dogs of her own, her daughter is a vet tech (and owns her own bakery! HOW COOL!) and also has three rescued dogs of her own so its a very rescue-oriented family down there in Austin Texas -- no Akitas yet but I'll work on her....HA!!
Here you go -- and her directions at the bottom are for making them into mini-muffins:

Fleas Navidad Nibblers

2 Tablespoons honey
2 3/4 c. water
1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
1/8 teas. vanilla
1 egg

dry ingredients:
1/2 c. chopped peanuts
4 c. whole wheat flour
1 Tbl. baking powder
1 Tbl. nutmeg
1 Tbl. cinnamon

350 deg. oven
In a bowl, mix honey, water, applesauce, vanilla and egg.
In another bowl mix peanuts, flour, baking powder, and spices.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir, mixing well. Spoon into greased muffin tin, filling each cup 2/3 full.

Bake 35 minutes
Store in sealed container. Makes 16 muffins

Kathy; the recipe is for regular sized muffins, but I make mini ones. Cut the baking time to around 15 to 20 minutes for mini. Do not forget to grease your pans; these will stick if you don't. Hope they enjoy them as much as my babies do.
