#RECIPEFRIDAY: 4 Ingredient Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Cookies!

I totally made these cookies for Teddy's birthday.

They were a hit!

Don't worry though...

These cookies are dog and human friendly too. (Win!)

That monster cookie on the far right was Teddy's ;)

As we celebrated Teddy's second birthday on December 29th (oh how time flies!)...

I wanted to treat him to something special! (Corny? Don't care lol)


I decided to make him birthday cookies for all of us to enjoy! (Which means, his two brothers and me of course...although I'm pretty sure SuperFit sneaked in a taste too!)

They were super easy and FUn to make and...

I love how they turned out to be 'treat' we could all dig into! (I totally couldn't help myself to a taste hehe!)


After taking The Bears out for a chilly walk ...

Nothing is more scary than being chased by a Teddy Bear ;)


Once the cookies cooled...

Cooling on the cooling rack.

You better believe...

I we The puppies savoured the cookies to no end!

He's so patient.

Having briefed you into the creation of these tasty delights...

I guess you assumed right when you thought...

I would be sharing this recipe in this edition of...


I hope you (and perhaps your FUrry friends) enjoy them as much as we have been!

  11. I absolutely love this! The recipe AND all kinds of Teddy goodness. I'm laughing and salivating and "awwww"ing at the same time! I will make these this weekend. It seems like my "biggie Iggy" Link could have them along with his sis (he is prone to pancreatitis so we keep it really clean). Thank you! This weekend, we're taking my baby back to college. Battling some more interesting weather while doing so, perhaps. Yikes! Hope you have a great one, yourself!
