It’s pretty common knowledge that chocolate is bad for dogs. But it’s not super common knowledge that carob is just fine for them! So let’s make our pups some chocolaty treats that are safe and healthy for them, shall we?
These are delicious and easy to make. In fact, I have to admit I might have eaten more of these than my dogs did. But they definitely enjoyed them when I offered them! They’re close the usual oatmeal cookies I make for them, but that carob was a nice added treat.
Basically, combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix, put on a cookie sheet, and then bake! After they’ve cooled enough, you can offer them to your pups. Or you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. Pups love them cold or warm from the oven. 🙂
The last Wednesday of the month is doggy recipe day here on the blog. So far, we’ve made doggy cookies and doggy cupcakes! Stay tuned for more doggy recipes throughout the year. My dogs are willing taste-testers to bring delicious vegan treat recipes to your pups. Promise. 😉

Seriously yummy carob doggy cookies that pups love! Carob adds a chocolaty flavor that's safe for them, and the banana sweetens the oats that make the base of these delicious treats.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2 tbsp peanut butter
- 1-2 tbsp carob powder
- 1 1/2 cups oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C) and ready a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, mash banana. Then add peanut butter and carob powder and stir well to combine.
Add oats and mix well. If the mixture is still pretty wet, add more oats. If it's too dry, add more peanut butter or even some applesauce.
Drop batter onto cookie sheet in 1-tbsp increments. Shape them into cookies and then bake for 18-20 minutes.
Let cool for 10 minutes and then enjoy! When serving to dogs, make sure they're cool enough first.
