March Recipe - Banana & Apple Cookies

We started Fetch & Follow by making handmade and all natural dog treats and we thought it to be only fitting that one of our first blog posts should be a dog treat recipe for you to try and make at home.
 
Now nothing much has really changed since the beginning when it comes to how we make our dogs treats, they are still made in our kitchen by hand (apart from the use of our handy nutribullet) in small batches using where possible locally sourced ingredients, meaning you at home should have no trouble in knocking up a batch of these Banana and Apple Cookies.
 
Ingredients
1 small eating apple (we get ours from our local farmers market)
½ fair trade banana (mashed)
1tsp cinnamon
1 cup of spelt flour
½ cup of oat bran
shaped cookie cutters
 
Method
  1. Pre heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper
  2. Using a blender blitz the apple and 1/4 cup of water
  3. Sift the flour and cinnamon into a bowl then add the oat bran
  4. Add the mashed banana and using your hands start to combine with the dry ingredients
  5. Slowly start to add the apple water a little at a time until you have a firm dough. If your mixture is too dry add a little more and if it is too wet add a little more flour.
  6. Lightly flour a clean surface or line with baking paper
  7. Turn the dough out onto your floured surface, then using a rolling pin roll the dough to the same thickness as a pound coin.
  8. Using a shaped cutter start cutting out your desired shape placing the cut cookies onto the lined baking tray making sure to leave 1cm gap between each cookie
  9. Bake for 10-12minutes or until golden and no longer soft to touch
  10. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool – please make sure the cookies are completely cooled before giving to your dog
 
Keep the biscuits in an airtight container for 5-7days

Blue Sky Thinking for Spring

With spring just around the corner here at Fetch & Follow we are getting very excited about the launch of our new collection in mid-March and to celebrate we wanted to share the inspiration behind the range with you.
 
Inspired by a recent trip to New York where we picked up some beautiful traditionally hand block printed indigo fabrics (which we will be using for an exciting project, more news to follow) at a local flea market, we knew we had found the starting point of our new collection.
 
Once back in London we went about exploring different ways in which we could incorporate block prints into our range of different products, but making sure it was done in a playful and fun way. We also wanted to make sure that the fabrics we selected encapsulated this beautiful and traditional way of printing while also being ethically sourced and we cant wait to show you the results.
