Sometimes my pup gets a grumbly tummy. I’ve read about how it can be something really serious, but that doesn’t appear to be the case with him. And he’s always been a weird eater. So I sometimes have to get him to eat something, and usually, these doggy cookies do the trick. My favorite part? I get to eat them too.
These doggy cookies are perfectly delicious on their own, but I do like to jazz them up a bit more when I make them for myself. I’ll add apple chunks, flax/chia, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup, turmeric, and even chocolate chips. If that sounds delicious, you may want to try my Breakfast Cookies recipe. As long as I put dog-friendly ingredients in (which most are!), I share with my pups. They love it, and I’m glad they’re eating nutritious food.
I plan on posting more recipes for dogs on the blog, so if you’re into that kind of thing, let me know what else you’d like to see! And you can find all dog recipes on my blog by clicking right here. I’ve posted doggy cupcakes and I have doggy treats and carob cookies coming up, but I’m happy to experiment with something new! And I’m sure my dogs will be eager taste-testers. 😉
Let me know if you try this recipe! Comment below, rate it, or take a photo and tag me @fruitsohard on Instagram. I’d love to see your creations. And don’t forget to cultivate some positivity and gratitude today. Tell me in the comments what you’re grateful for if you’d like (maybe your dog!). Vibe high, friends!
Cookies for dogs? Oh yeah. These doggy cookies require minimal ingredients you probably have on hand right now, and dogs go wild for them. Plus, you can indulge too!
- 1 ripe banana*
- 2 tbsp applesauce
- (optional) 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1-2 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cup 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 applesauce, (optional) cinnamon, and peanut butter 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 PB/applesauce.
Drop batter onto cookie sheet in 2-3 tbsp. Shape them into cookies and then bake for 20 minutes or until they hold together.
Let cool for 10 minutes and then enjoy! When serving to dogs, make sure they're cool enough first.
*You can use fresh or frozen-thawed. Both work perfectly.
