Tasty Tuesday: Valentine Baking for our Shelter Dog Friends!




What a great idea!!  Bake up a batch of these and drop them off at your local shelter!!  Make some new Valentine's friends!!

Gather your ingredients


  • 2 cups cooked and cooled carrots
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled, or another cup of cooked, cooled vegetables like peas or green beans
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1-1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups white flour, plus more for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 325° F (160° C).
  2. Blend the banana and veggies in a food processor. Add the soy milk, peanut butter, and molasses and blend again.
  3. Sift together the whole wheat flour and baking powder, then add to the wet mixture and blend well.
  4. Pour the batter into a large mixing bowl. Add 1 cup of white flour and stir thoroughly. Knead in the second cup of white four, adding more flour if necessary to make a stiff dough. Divide the dough into four parts.
  5. Roll out a piece of dough on a floured board to about 1/8 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter or knife to make heart shapes (or any other Valentine's Day symbol). Place the biscuits onto an ungreased cookie sheet—it's okay to put them close together; they won't spread out.
  6. Bake the biscuits for 10 minutes or until they are just starting to brown. Remove from the oven and turn over the biscuits with a spatula. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes. Turn the biscuits again and bake for another 10 minutes. They should be as crisp as crackers.
  7. Remove the biscuits from the oven and let them cool completely.
  8. Repeat with the other three parts of the dough, or freeze the remaining dough to bake later.
  9. Store the cooled biscuits in a covered container in the refrigerator until you can deliver them.

#Look Who's Happy!

**Disclosure:  I received pkgs of Look Who's Happy Treats for the dogs to sample.  I am not being compensated in any other way.  This is an honest review and my own opinion.  Look Who's Happy.com is not responsible for the content of this post.**


Allow me to introduce you to a new line of Dog Treats that are on the market!!  These treats are Made in the USA and Family Owned!  These treats are called Look Who's Happy!!

The girls are absolutely THRILLED with these new, natural treats!

They are carefully crafted from the purest, most nourishing ingredients:  cage free poultry, naturally raised meats, garden vegetables, and selected fruits.  All these treats are made in a new family-owned facility following stringent operating procedures from beginning to end.  The Look Who's Happy Plant conforms to higher standards than what is required for commercial pet products!!



Look Who's Happy carries three different product lines:  The first one being Fetch'n Fillets which come in several different flavors:  Beef Jerky, Bison Jerky, Chicken Jerky, and Venison Jerky.



The second product line is Tempt'n Tenders:  The flavor varieties in this line are:  Chicken with Blueberry, Chicken with Carrot, Chicken with Pumpkin, and Chicken with Sweet Potato.


The third product line is Happy Wraps!  Happy Wraps come in four different varieties...Carrot with Chicken, Carrot with Turkey, Sweet Potato with Chicken, and Sweet Potato with Turkey.


Look Who's Happy Treats have been featured on TODAY, Woman's Day, Real Simple Magazine, and Modern Dog Magazine.  You can find them just about everywhere on social media on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube!


All of the products that Look Who's Happy manufactures are made in Gainesville, Georgia in a brand new facility that is family owned. 

 They are able to keep track of every ingredient from start to finish and ensure that every single morsel meets the rigorous standards for quality, safety, and flavor.


You may have noticed that this post is packed with pictures!  The girls loved these more than any other treat I have given them!  It was amazing...they just couldn't get enough of these things!!


Look Who's Happy beef, chicken, turkey, and bison are North American-sourced.  All of the high quality meats are USDA inspected.  Their genuine, USDA inspected venison is imported from New Zealand.  The bison and venison are grass fed and the beef is naturally raised.  The poultry is cage free!

The fruit, veggies, nuts and grains in the entire product lines are grown in the USA.  No ingredients from China!!


Look Who's Happy treats do not contain a trace of additives like fillers, animal by products or artifical preservatives...and they never will!!  They are also free of hormones, artificial colors and flavors.

The entire Look Who's Happy plant is operated according to FDA food safety production guidelines, which are a lot more stringent than industry standards for pet food processing.  Every single lot is tested for safety by an independent laboratory!!


All Look Who's Happy treats are preserved with Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols -- alpha, beta, gamma and delta isomers).  Chemical preservatives such as BHA, BHT or ethoxyquin are NEVER used in the manufacturing of these treats.


Rest assured if you have any questions at all, you can phone the company at 855-567-8801 or email for information at info@lookwhoshappy.com.


Overall, we could not be more pleased with this entire line of products and we will HIGHLY recommend these products to everyone!
