Holiday Recipe: Gluten-Free Bonbons

Holiday Recipe: Gluten-Free Bonbons

Posted by The Honest Kitchen on 6th December 2016


  • 1 cup The Honest Kitchen Force™ dehydrated dog food
  • 1/2 cup ground beef
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 free range egg
  • 1 small handful of quinoa or buckwheat flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Mix equal part of the Force™ and pumpkin together in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add in the beef, quinoa flour, and egg, and mix until well blended.
  3. Shape into balls of a size appropriate for your dog, and place onto a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, or until slightly golden on the outside, but soft in the middle.
  5. Cool, and then call in the hounds.
  6. These treats will store for about a week in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


These treats are quick and easy to make and are suitable for most sensitive pets. Quinoa and buckwheat are not true grains and are very well tolerated, even by grain-allergic pets. ALSO: Quinoa flour has quite a strong taste and aroma, which most pets love, but some animals take a while to get used to it. If you have a fussy pup, buckwheat flour is a perfectly good alternative.
