Hispanic Heritage Month Recipes

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Each year, from September 15 to October 15 Americans celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. 2021 was especially significant because it was the 200th anniversary of Costa Rican Independence from Spain. Here are a few traditional & unique Latin American recipes you may want to add to your menu: 

Banana Pumpkin Dog Treats - Grain & Dairy Free

This year we decided in addition to celebrating Diwali we would celebrate the Nepalese holiday of Kukur Tihar, October 26th. Kukur Tihar is a special holiday celebrating the relationship between humans and dogs. All dogs are thanked for their companionship throughout the year, they are garlanded with flowers, tika of kumkum and turmeric is applied to their heads, and they are given delicious treats.

For our puppy Sita, she got a new outfit, some new toys and I made her these healthy baked dairy & grain free treats.

  2. Can I substitute grain free flour for the coconut flour?

    1. Hi! Yes as long as it's not Almond flour, dogs can get severe GI distress from almonds. I've used Oatmeal flour and it came out very well!
