Simple but Delicious Dog Treat Recipe

Updated on November 27, 2019

Carob Coated Honey and Oat Dog Treats

These delicious dog treats are simple to make and I'm sure your dog will love them!

INGREDIENTS:

Cookies:

  • 170 grams (6 ounces) of oat flour
  • 170 grams (6 ounces) of brown rice flour
  • 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of oats
  • 1 egg
  • 125 ml (1/4 of a pint) of water
  • 2-3 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Frosting:

1 cup of *carob chips

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius (350 degrees fahrenheit)
  • Mix everything together until you end up with a big ball of dough.
  • Roll the dough to a thickness of around 7 (1/4 of an inch) and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter and place them on a baking tray.
  • Bake for approximately 25 minutes at 180 degrees celsius (350 degrees fahrenheit)

For the frosting, simply melt some *carob chips and dip the top of the cookies into the mixture. For best results, let the cookies cool first and allow the carob to dry naturally (not in the refrigerator).

* Do NOT use chocolate. This is poisonous to dogs!!!

TIPS

Because we're using uncooked oats in this recipe, you might find that during the cutting process, the dough dries out a little and becomes difficult to roll out. Don't worry about this, it's normal, the oats sucks the moisture out of the dough. Just add a little more water to the dough.

If you want your treats to be extra crunchy, turn the oven off but leave your treats in for a couple of hours. This will 'pull' the moisture out of the cookies and make them much crunchier.

As soon as your cookies have cooled, put them in an airtight container and they'll stay fresh for a couple of weeks.

I hope your dog enjoys these treats!!

      Dogs do love chocolate type stuff. I have made dog treats, and always use carob or chocolate flavored ( not actually chocolate) yogurt wafers. Yours sounds like a good recipe, thanks. I have 3 hubs on making dog treats; check them out!

      Thanks JenJen0703! I'm really pleased you found it interesting. Carob doesn't contain theobromine, the ingredient that is toxic to dogs so it's totally safe to give them carob. I've tried all of the treats I make myself and they taste pretty good!!! I make a cheese one too and it's delicious....my dog looks at me in a strange way when I'm helping myself to HIS treats though!

      This was an interesting article. I knew dogs could not eat chocolate, but I never knew they could have carob. Your treats look good enough for human snacks.
