Paisley’s Peanut Brittle

This fun and easy recipe makes a wonderful Thanksgiving gift and can be put in a pretty box wrapped with a bow so that it can be easily given out to fellow dog lovers. Pay it forward with these peanut delights.

3 ½ cups of rice flour
1 teas. ground cinnamon
½ teas. baking powder
1 egg
¼ cup honey
¼ cup unsalted peanut butter
½ cup canola oil
1 teas. pure vanilla extract
½ cup chopped unsalted peanuts

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  
Grease a jelly roll pan with nonstick vegetable spray.

Stir together the rice flour, cinnamon and baking powder in a bowl and set aside.  

In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, honey, peanut butter, oil and vanilla.  

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and add 1 cup water.  
Stir to form a stiff batter.

Turn the dough out on the jelly roll pan.  
Cover the dough with plastic wrap. With a rolling pin, roll the dough out evenly to ¼ inch thickness. Remove the plastic wrap and sprinkle the dough with peanuts, pressing them into the dough. Score the dough with a knife into small squares.

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until it starts to turn a golden brown.
 
These can be frozen up to 3 months.

WARNING: Did you know dogs should not have macadamia nuts? Did you know zylitol is extremely toxic for dogs and it can be found in Nuts’n More, Krush, P28 Foods and Go Nuts peanut butter brands?
