I love to travel with Miles, and that includes many half-day trips. I like to bring along snacks that can double as healthy meals for me and treats for Miles. This recipe I came up with does the trick. The broccoli can be substituted with other sorts of dog-friendly vegetables, and if you want to make them more indulgent, you can also add shredded cheddar. These muffins are easy to make, filling, healthy, high-protien and low-carb. When I make a batch, most go to people. But they do double as great one-serving special dog treats, or you can break up a few and use them as healthy high-reward training treats (which you can also keep in the freezer in between training sessions).
- 1 carton pasteurized egg whites
- 8 large eggs
- 1 large container cottage cheese
- 2 large heads of broccoli, chopped (or chopped spinach, kale, chard or basil, or shredded zucchini)
- 1 cup cooked and chopped bacon
Step 1: Prepare ingredients.
Step 2: Whisk eggs and egg whites in a bowl until well mixed, add cottage cheese and mix.
Step 3: Grease cupcake pans or use muffin liners (use liners!) and fill each cup with equal amounts of broccoli and bacon.
Step 4: Stir egg mixture well, and spoon over broccoli and bacon until the cups are evenly full.
