Baking Doggie Cookies! :)

So we made cookies!
When I say we, I mean I did all the work & Ace Chan did all the eating :)
It was SO hard to decide which recipe to make out of the book!
*The Ultimate Dog Treat Cookbook by Liz Palika*
(Pictured in Previous post)
After much deliberation, we decided on Peanut Butter-Honey Nut Cheerios Balls-YUM!

The Recipe is as follows....
(Makes 50-60 bite size treats) *I made like 30 though, mine are more like cookies (3 bites) hehe
*These cookies are soft and crumbly & deliciously peanutbuttery!*(Yes..I made up that word..)
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter (creamy or chunky) * I used regular KRAFT peanutbutter/chunky*
  • 2 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
  • 1 cup all purpose flour *If your pup has allergies, you can make flour from quick oats*
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  1.  Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Warm Peanut butter in microwave until soft.
  3. Add rest of ingredients to peanut butter and mix gently but thoroughly
  4. Form round teaspoons of dough into balls, squeeze each ball in hand (This reduces crumbling)
  5. Place on greased cookie sheet *I used parchment paper*
  6. Bake for 8-10 min or until golden on the bottom of cookies
  7. Remove from the oven & let cool thoroughly & store in airtight container!
This is the page of the recipe! The pictures are SO cute!
I usually prefer cook books with the completed recipe shown, but I suppose after a Culinary Arts Degree, I should be fine without pictures haha
 These are our ingredients laid out!
This is the finished product!
(These are only part of them, I had another sheet in the oven @ the time)
Uh-Oh...notice that one is missing!..I wonder where it went!
There it is! My little Taste Taster! :)
Ace Gobbled his cookie up in a couple of bites!! After he was finished he ran around the living room asking for more...
Only 1 Ace-Chan! I don't want you to spoil your dinner :)
.....sad face....But why????
Overall, they were SUPER easy to make (a little messy while molding them) but they mix up & bake quick! I think I spent about 25 minutes total on these :)
If your pooch likes peanut butter, they will love these!
Ace Chan wasn't a big fan of peanut butter when we first brought him home, I think it was because he had never had it before, now he gobbles it up in an instant!
I make yummy frozen treats for him in the ice cube tray
-Low Sodium Beef Broth with a dollop of peanut butter in the center-
Freeze...and voila! an icey beef broth with a gooey peanut center!
I must say, I loved the feeling of him gobbling up his cookie after I made them! It really showed he enjoyed them! He must have paced through the kitchen about a dozen times before finally setting down for a nap :)
Can't wait to try the other recipes!! Next weekend...Turkey treats! ( a play on Thanksgiving, but in a cookie!) Who doesn't enjoy Thanksgiving?!?! It doesn't matter if it is Spring :)
If anyone has any questions about the recipe or tries it out, let me know how it goes!
These cookies can be stored in a sealed container (or baggie) for up to 2 weeks!


  1. Mmmm. Yummy!
    Thanks for the recipe.
    Ace sure is going to be a fatty if he eats all of them !

  2. Those look yummy! It's good to know that Ace gave them a thumb's up (paw's up). Be honest, did either you or your husband have a little bite, too?!! ☺

  3. I sure did have a bite! :) Delish haha! No wonder he gobbled them up in a flash!
    (They are all normal/healthy ingredients) so they are safe for human consumption! :)

  4. I would have tasted them, too! ☺

  5. the frozen treats will be great when you start teething!
