I would like to make the puppy chows but I live in New Zealand, I have never heart about peanut flour and have never seen it either. What could I use instead of the peanut flour? It doesn’t have to be gluten free.
Thanks in advance for your help/advice
We have a brand called PB2 here in the U.S. but I’ve seen other brands. I order mine online. If you can’t get your hands on them over in New Zealand perhaps try a 1/4 cup coconut flour? It’s tricky to think of a substitute as the peanut flour enhances the peanut butter/chocolate puppy chow flavor. If all else fails I’d use powdered sugar, but would cut the powdered sugar from 1/2 cup the peanut flour requires to just a 1/4 cup of powdered sugar to keep lower-sugar (Adding 3 grams of sugar per serving) but allow that powder coating – that would be my plan of attack 🙂
Hope this helps! Let me know how it turns out if you try this!
This sounds wonderful and as I have a good friend who has to be gluten-free, I will be trying it. Could I use tapioca powder instead of the potato starch, do you suppose? Otherwise, I have the rest of the stuff! Thanks for a healthier alternative to regular puppy chow!
Hi Sherrie! I definitely believe tapioca powder should work just fine. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂
Hi Lindsay, I would love to make this and was wondering what the reasoning for the potato starch is? Would I be able to use powdered hydrolyzed collagen in place of it? Thanks! Trying to figure out how I can make it even healthier 😉
I’ve never worked with powdered hydrolyzed collagen before. I liked the potato starch because it subbed instead of adding extra sugar. It prolly can be omitted entirely, it just would be less powdery. 🙂
