Honey Oat Cookies (For furry friends only!)

My dog was quite sick for the past 2 days from eating a store-bought dog treat. I stayed home with her today to make sure she was drinking water and not messing up the house and decided to make her some home-made cookies. She loves them and her tummy seems to be settled now. She is spoiled rotten!

They were very simple to make. I made 1.5 dozen and stored the remainder in a ball (freezer) for the next time I need some.

Ingredients & Directions: (Recipe from Cooking for your Dog by Ingeborg Pils)

  • 1 1/4 cups of flour

  • 1 1/2 cups of porridge oats

  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder

  • 2 tablespoons of butter

  • 2 tablespoons of honey

  • 2 eggs

  • 2/5 cup of milk

  • flour for dusting

Preheat oven to 400 F. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix the dry ingredients together. Add butter in small flakes, honey, eggs and milk. Knead together thoroughly.

Roll the dough out to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut out round cookies shapes. Place on baking sheet with some room between them. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow the cookies to dry for another 2 hours in the oven.

Serve with hugs & ear scratches!
