Basil LOVES treats. I’m sure that’s a universal trait among dogs, but Basil has a very willing palate. He’ll try (almost) anything once! I was thinking about how at Christmas us humans get all kinds of yummy cookies, snacks and treats and thought, “why shouldn’t little buddy?” Thankfully, I found a super easy recipe that I could throw together in a matter of minutes. Plus, I had all of the ingredients on hand! (and if you’re curious, they are vegan as well! :))
