Homemade Dog Cookies

I started making Charlie his dog treats about a year ago after learning of his food allergies. Not only do I think he prefers fresh cookies, making my own treats is a way to control the ingredients, fat, calories etc. I usually try and mix up the recipes a little bit, but this one is simple, easy and he loves it.


·         1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

·         ½ cup apple sauce

·         1 cup oats

·         1 banana

·         ½ cup peanut butter

·         1 ¼ cups hot water

·         ½ teaspoon cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2. Mash banana with a fork until smooth. 3. In a large bowl mix all ingredients one at a time, kneading well after each addition. 4. Knead dough into ball and roll onto a floured surface 1/4 inch thick. 5. Cut with the cookie cutter of your choice.6. Place on your prepared cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until edges browned. Cool and refrigerate.

Yields 4 – 5 dozen dog bones.

*Note: If you want a “shinier look,” you can also brush a thin coat of egg whites on the cookies before baking them.

These also make for a cute gift to other fur parents!

    Wow – great idea! I want to try these. Am curious-do you think it's cheaper to make your own than buy? Obviously it's a lot healthier!
