We’re celebrating Cocoa on the blog today with gluten-free peanut butter dog treats and her favorite new limited-ingredient dog food, GO! by Petcurean. This is a sponsored post but all opinions, as always, are my own.
It’s no surprise that I love my dog.
I write about her on the blog all of the time, she’s a little bit spoiled, and I’m pretty sure more than half of my Instagram followers follow me just because of her.
Heck, I even make her a dog birthday cake every year (made with bacon), which has actually became one of the most popular recipes on our site.
So that tells me one thing: you guys love your dog a ton, too.
Let me tell you a list of Cocoa’s favorite things.
- Treats (that are not cheese)
- …wait, is there more to life?
As you can see, three out of the four things on Cocoa’s list are food related.
Cocoa is a true foodie. Like her mom.
She knows it, too.
We had to put her on a limited ingredient diet a few years ago when she was having digestion issues and severe allergies.
She’s been on this kind of diet since then, and it’s worked wonders for her.
No more bi-monthly vet visits, lethargy, or itching. So. Much. Itching.
Cocoa’s current favorite food is GO!, which makes total sense because Cocoa is an epicurean kind of dog.
She loves the flavor, of course (her favorite being duck). I love that it’s high-quality and that it’s made with limited ingredients.
I also love that it gives her a shiny coat, a happy tummy, and tons of energy. I always chose pet food that is made with zero growth hormones, by-products, or artificial preservatives (check, check, check). But GO! SENSITIVITY + SHINE™ Limited Ingredient Diet Duck recipe by Petcurean is particularly good for Cocoa’s sensitive needs. If your dog also requires specific dietary needs and/or has food sensitivities, I highly recommend it.
- No grains, gluten, potatoes, corn, or soy
- Antioxidants for immune support
- No artificial preservatives
- Omega oils to support healthy skin and coat
To celebrate Cocoa even more, I’m also making her these tasty gluten-free peanut butter dog treats.
These treats are gluten-free and made with oat and coconut flour, pumpkin, peanut butter, and coconut oil.
They are easy, and pup-approved!

We’re celebrating Cocoa on the blog today with gluten-free peanut butter dog treats. These treats are gluten-free and made with oat and coconut flour, pumpkin, peanut butter, and coconut oil.
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon raw honey
- 3/4 cups coconut flour
- 1 1/4 cups oat flour*
For the Glaze (optional):
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, peanut butter, melted coconut oil, honey, and pumpkin until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the baking soda, oat flour, and coconut flour until incorporated.
- Stir the flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture until thoroughly combined and a dough forms.
- Divide the dough into two disks and wrap the dough in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
- On a floured surface, roll the dough out to about 1/4″ thick. Cut out cookies using any small cutter of choice.
- Place on parchment-lined baking sheets and bake until golden and firm, about 20 minutes (this will vary on the size of your cutter).
- Let the cookies cool. If using the glaze, whisk the peanut butter and melted coconut oil until combined. Drizzle over the cookies.
- Store cookies in the refrigerator.
*I make my own oat flour by simply blending oats in a food processor or blender into a powdery flour.
