Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups coconut flour You can change the flour to your favourite

  • 1 cup peanut butter i use smooth, but you can use crunch for extra texture
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons honey If you use local honey, it helps with the immune system
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil This helps keep their coat healthy

Frosting

  • 1/3 cup corn starch
  • 1 tbsp honey

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F
  • Whisk the eggs together, then put all the ingredients into a stand mixer bowl, you can combine this by hand, but it will take effort

  • 1. Place on parchment paper, and place another piece on top, then roll the dough out, then cut out the cookies – dipping the cutter in flour each time
  • 2. Spray the mold with oil. Fill the mold with dough and either press out or cook in the silicone molds.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes
  • Place on a wire rack to cool

Making the Frosting

Notes

This recipe is adapted from The Cookie Rookie – www.thecookierookie.com Please check out the website for more wonderful recipes
Using crunchy peanut butter can add a nice texture, but will not help when frosting your cookies
I love using coconut flour for my dog treats, but you can change that to wholewheat, almond, etc. Just know that different flours have different liquid absorption rates, so you might need to add or reduce the water amount.
If you cook the treats in a convection oven you will need to reduce the heat to 300°f. Keep an eye on the treats, so they do not burn. Every oven has its own little quirks, so learning how your oven reacts is important.
Local honey has health benefits as it helps your immune(and therefore your dogs) system, as the bees are filtering the local pollen’s etc
I have not tried freezing these cookies, so let me know if you do. I would expect that the raw dough could be frozen, and then cooked at a later date, so you can make a full batch or double batch and cook what you need.
I have three dogs so we get though a lot of treats
