McMochi's Pot O' Gold

They're magically delicious!
You've followed the rainbow to McMochi's Pot O' Gold.... these homemade greenies. Don't know how she followed the rainbow since dogs are color blind and all but she's a gangsta and we don't question gangstas.

Since dogs can only see limited colors, I believe their red or green color blind it doesn't make much different what color their treats are. So I try to stay away from artificial food coloring as possible. I pureed boiled spinach to achieve a natural green color and used white whole wheat instead of regular whole wheat to not interfere with the coloring. Voila! Magically delicious all-natural green treats just in time for St. Patty's.

  • 3 C. of white whole wheat flour (use white to let the green color come through)
  • 3 tbsp. of olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. of soy milk
  • 1/4 C. water from boiled spinach
  • 1 C. of spinach puree (1 bag of spinach)

Spinach puree
1. Preheat oven 350 degrees.
2. Bring a pot of water to boil. Add 1 bag of spinach and boil for about 5 minutes.
3. Scoop out 1/4 cup of boiled spinach water and set aside.
4. Drain spinach. Put into food processor and puree.
5. Mix flour, olive oil, egg, soy milk, water from boiled spinach, and spinach puree together. Dough should have consistency of play doh.
3. Roll the dough into a 1/4-inch-thick roll. Use bone or floral cookie cutters.
4. Bake for 20-22 minutes.


Store in an airtight container once on counter after thoroughly cooled for up to 1 week . Waiting until cooled is an important step; condensation can build and the moisture will cause treats to mold.

For longer shelf life: store in fridge for up to 2 months. Store in freezer for up to 8 months.
Tip: Write date on plastic bag to keep track of expiration date.
