I’m back to baking dog friendly recipes with pea and rosemary dog treats. What a pealicious way to start the ball rolling! Plus they have only four ingredients. You could say they are easy peasy.
Long time readers will remember Sally and know it has been a few years since she passed. If you receive our newsletter or follow Belly Rumbles on social media, then you will have the heads up on this announcement over everybody else.
Early February there was a new addition to the family in the form of a fluff ball called Harley. Harley is a loving bundle of husky energy. Extremely social, loves both humans and other dogs, and basks in the attention she gets when we are out and about.

To say she is an attention magnet would be understating things hugely. From her daily walks, to being out and about around town, she receives pats and cuddles from strangers, as well as the occasional selfie. A recent venture for lunch ended with a small queue of people wanting cuddles and photos.
Minx should be her middle name. Harley has worked out how to undo her seatbelt in the car. Driving down the highway at 70km/hour the other day I got the shock of my life. I thought she was safely belted up on the back seat, then all of a sudden she popped up on the centre console and promptly put the car in neutral!
At first I thought the seatbelt escaping incident was an accident. Promptly found out I was wrong on a recent trip to the post office. Calling in to pick up the mail I left the back windows of the car open less than half. Before the emails start coming in about leaving dogs in cars, yes I know. It’s winter here in Australia, and I was gone for less than two minutes, and car was in front of post office.
But fool me, as it seems that great husky feats can be achieved in less than two minutes. I came back to an empty car. My heart sank, I panicked, and nearly had a heart attack on the spot. It’s amazing what thoughts flash through your mind in a few seconds. Had somebody nabbed my dog? Has she run in front of a car? Am I ever going to see her again? What am I going to tell Josh??? (Josh thinks she is his dog, Harley and I are yet to break the facts to him)
We live in a quiet suburb and luckily her Houdini act was performed at a quiet time of the day. After I stopped freaking out, I spotted her across the road in front of the primary school. There she was, on one side of the fence, with about eight students on the other. One holding her lead, another taking down the phone number on her collar and the rest pampering her with multiple hand rubs and pats. She was in her element, I on the other hand was a neurotic mess.
Big thank you to those wonderful kids at OBP!

These pea and rosemary dog treats are a sinch to make, they won't leave you a neurotic mess in the process. Plus they only use four ingredients.
I cut mine out with heart shape cookie cutters, but don’t feel you need to be fancy. Simply rolling the dough in to balls and press them down to form round cookies will be just as delicious in your dog’s eyes.
What did Harley think of the pea and rosemary dog treats? To say she went a little gaga for them would be an understatement.
Pea and Rosemary Dog Treats
These pea and rosemary dog treats with have your favourite puppy doing back flips. Only 4 ingredients and easy peasy to make.
- 2 cups (300g) frozen baby peas, defrosted
- 1 egg
- 1 cup (140g) wholemeal flour
- ½ tablespoon rosemary, finely chopped
- Pre-heat oven 180°C (360°F)
- Biltz half the peas with a stick blender or in a bullet blender with the egg.
- Using a potato masher, mash the remaining peas slightly. The idea is to just break and squish them a little.
- In a medium size bowl place both lots of peas, flour and rosemary. Mix until well combined.
- Turn dough out on to a well floured surface and flatten out to 1cm thick (¼ inch) and cut into desired shapes.
- Place on lined baking tray.
- Alternatively roll small portions of dough in to rounds, place on lined baking tray, and flatten with fingers or a fork.
- Bake for 40 minutes.
- Once cooked place on a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
