Homemade Dog Cookies! Droolicious!

Look at that face! He deserves a homemade dog treat...made with love, of course!
Look at that face! He deserves a homemade dog treat...made with love, of course!

I love dogs! I also love to bake! Then it hit me…why not combine the two! Before you get upset, let me explain what I mean. No, I don't bake dogs…I bake homemade dog treats for my dogs! You see, I have three rescue dogs and I love them dearly. Treats that are sold in the grocery store are full of fat and artificial colors (they are also expensive!). I enjoy giving my dogs a treat now and again (I know they enjoy them too) so I decided to come up with my own, all natural, healthy dog cookies.

If you have a dog and are concerned about what they are eating…why not make some time on a Saturday afternoon and bake your pooch some homemade goodness. If you have kids, why not make it a family project, after all, kids love to bake too (they probably also like spending time with you!). Be on the look –out for more droolicious recipes but in the meantime, what are you waiting for!? Go buy the ingredients needed for the Peanut and Banana Cookie recipe below and get to baking! Woof!

Granola Dog Cookie Recipe

Ingredients:

1 Cup of Honey Granola Cereal

1 & 1/2 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1/4 Cup of Molasses

1 Small Jar of Banana Baby Food

1/2 Cup of Peanuts (no salt)

1 Large Egg

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a non-stick cookie pan (I used PAM for baking). In a large bowl, combine cereal, baking soda, molasses, egg and the jar of baby food. Blend well. Next, add the peanuts. Once all of the above mentioned ingredients have been blended together, slowly add the flour (I always find it easier to add the flour last). A sticky dough should begin to form. Finally, form spoonfuls of dough into small to medium sized balls and place on the cookie sheet. Flaten each ball with a fork and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before serving to your pooch. Store extra cookies in an air-tight container. Enjoy!

Please remember that while most (If not all) dogs LOVE homemade dog treats some may have specific dietary requirements and / or allergies. If you are concerned about any of the ingredients in the above recipe, please do not hesitate to talk to your veterinarian before baking.
