healthy dog cookies

Dogs love peanut butter, and these cookies are a great way to sneak some fish oil into your dog’s diet. Fish oil improves your dog’s coat, making it shiny, soft, and healthier.

Look for organic peanut butter at your grocery store. Many commercial brands of peanut butter have unhealthy hydrogenated oils and additives, or xylitol. Xylitol is toxic to dogs, so check the ingredients to make sure there is none added. Better yet, make your own peanut butter using raw peanuts and peanut oil, and processing the mixture in your food processor or in the peanut butter maker at your Los Lunas grocery store. 

Ingredients

2 cups of flour  (white or wheat is fine)
1 cup of rolled oats (not instant)
1/3 cup of smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon of local honey (using local honey will help reduce seasonal allergies)
1/2 tablespoon of fish oil (you can crack open fishoil supplements if you don’t have a bottle of fish oil).
1 1/2 cups of water


Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix the flour and oats together in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Pour in one cup of water and blend until smooth.
  4. Add in the peanut butter, honey, and fish oil and mix until all the ingredients are well blended.
  5. Slowly add the water until the mixture has a thick and doughy consistency.
  6. Lightly flour a cooking surface.
  7. Roll the dough onto the cooking surface to create a 1/4 inch thick sheet. You can flour your rolling pin if the dough is sticking to the pin. 
  8. Use a cookie cutter to create shapes.
  9. Place the cookies onto a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.
  10. Allow to cool completely before feeding.

These cookies will stay fresh for 1 to 2 weeks. You can also freeze the dough. Always consult with your Los Lunas vet before introducing new foods to your pet.
