Please allow me to introduce our family dog Max. Max has absolutely zero interest in fetch or playing games. His sole purpose in life is to run. He’s like the running Forest Gump of dogs. My husband hops on his bicycle daily and rides like the wind while Max with his floppy ears runs right along side him.


Inspiration hit for our next clubhouse foods session when a notification appeared on my Apple Watch indicating it is Max’s 10th birthday next week. We were in the school clubhouse at the time and I mentioned it to my fellow EA’s. That got us talking about an afternoon foods session of baking dog biscuits for staff members who own dogs. We looked online for recipe and packaging inspiration and this is what we came up with. The bags were divided up and the students personally delivered the bags to the specific staff members. Our school principal owns a dog and after receiving his bag said he would video his dog enjoying the gifted doggie treats so the students could see. Too fun!

What is great about the doggie treat recipe is it calls for ground oats. We have a magic bullet blender in the clubhouse and the students enjoy using it, perfect for grinding oats. The students also enjoy using the clubhouse hand blender which was used to mix the peanut butter and banana together. These three ingredients were combined, the students rolled the dough into balls and placed them on a greased cookie sheet, then baked in the oven.

This is a wrap for clubhouse foods this school year. I’m sure our furry friends enjoyed eating them as much as we enjoying making them, I know mine did.
