Tasty treats for your best friend

recipes to make homemade treats for man's best friends

Dog-gone Good Cookies

1/2 cup of peanut butter

(creamy kind)

1/4 cup honey

1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil

(or olive oil)

1 cup chicken broth

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together first four ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine flours and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Place dough on flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about 1/4” inch thick. Use a small bone cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Put cut out cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes.

Cat’s Meow Tuna Cookies

6 ounce can of tuna, undrained

1/3 cup nori (dried seaweed)

1/4 cup cornmeal

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

Tear your nori up into tiny peices or pulse it in the blender for a moment. Combine all your ingredients in a medium bowl and mix with a spoon untill well blended. The dough for these is rather gooey, so using a silpad or spraying your pan with oil before you bake is suggested. You can roll these out and cut them up, or just grab little balls and flatten them as you might with “people” cookies. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes

until brown.

Horsin’ Around Carrot Cookies

1 cup grated carrots

1 apple

2 tbs. corn oil

1/4 cup molasses

1 tsp salt

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix carrot, apple, corn oil and molasses together. Fold in salt, oats and flour until well mixed. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls on greased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
