Isaac and his mother lived alone in a small house on the hill. That much is certain. But on a fateful day, a voice from above changed all of that. A voice of divinity demanded the end of a peaceful existence that Isaac had grown accustomed. An end to both the peaceful… and the existence. Both parts. Not just, like, a small temporary ban on peace. You figure a heavenly voice looking down on a child would be fine with one or two toys taken away, but this? Subjected to escaping a vengeful mother fueled by irrational anger and zealotry? To be forced to navigate increasingly more treacherous dungeons and passages with nothing more to defend himself from the evils and terrors that haunt the halls than his own tears and perhaps a Box of Spiders? Oh, wait you don’t want to use the Box of Spiders. I mean sure, if you have nothing else to use, but really you want at least a Deck of Cards or the Best Friend. With the Best Friend, you can save your bomb ammo and have access to more secret rooms. A Box of Spiders isn’t going to open any secret passages for you and you’ll just confuse the spiders for bad spiders and try to avoid them even though they d… oh and uh.. umm… Binding of Isaac! This kid sure has it rough.
Recently my husband has been playing a lot of Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. I’ve enjoyed watching him go through his different runs and all the madness that can happen depending on the items your character picks up. A few of the pickup are food related but none of them are human friendly. However, a few of the items are friendly for everyone’s best companion. Our little corgi, Kanji, celebrated his 3rd birthday yesterday and I thought it would be appropriate to make him some homemade treats. He LOVES these treats and I’m sure your little ones will love them too. This treat is human safe but I wouldn’t really recommend it.
Required Equipment: bowls, baking sheet, dog bone cookie cutter
Serving: about 30 treats
– 1 1/3 cup flour
– 1 cup oats
– ½ cup peanut butter
– ¼ cup bacon fat
– ½ cup yogurt
– 1 egg
– 1 cup bacon, cooked
– 1 carrot, shredded
Preheat your oven to 350°F. In a small bowl combine the flour and oats. In a large bowl combine the egg, peanut butter, bacon fat and yogurt.
Combine the flour and oat into the wet ingredient bowl. At this point you are going to need to use your hands because the mixture will be a bit sticky.
Add the shredded carrot and bacon pieces into the dough.
Place the dough onto a lightly floured table. Press the dough into a thin disk at about ¼ inch in height. Use cookie cutters to shape little fun shapes for your dog. Place the cut cookies onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Once your sheet is full, place it in the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes for a softer cookie or 30-40 minutes for a crunchier treat. I made Kanji the softer ones and he is LOVING them.
