OK, obviously I didn’t eat the doggy treats made by Akasha Richmond of Akasha in Culver City, although I bet I could and I’d be fine since they’re made with peanut butter, honey, oats, brown rice flour and peanuts. Yup, I could so eat that! But no, Akasha gave the treats to my dog Mya who looovvved them.
The gluten-free biscuits are made at Akasha’s bakery in the restaurant and she sells two flavors — oatmeal-peanut butter “cookies” and cornmeal dog bones — at two for $1. You can pick up a bag in the cafe area.
Akasha doesn’t have a dog of her own, rather she has three cats, but she still loves canines and when she came across the recipes for dog biscuits in a cookbook she felt compelled to make them. I’m so glad she did.
When we visited her at the restaurant this past Sunday she fed them to Mya who instantly became her best friend, staring after Akasha every time she got up just in case she was really getting up to get more biscuits. My doggy totally loved them.
The dog bones come in two sizes — small and large — which I just fed to Mya in one sitting since they’re kinda tough to break in half. But the peanut butter cookie I broke up into bits since it’s softer and moist like a regular cookie. Man, they look good. I might have to give ’em a taste myself.
