Homemade Dog Treat Recipe - Applesauce Cookies

Here is another easy to make dog treat recipe, just in time for the holidays!

The Applesauce Cookies aren't just yummy, but also healthy!

A short note about ingredients:
Make sure you use unsweetened applesauce and regular peanut butter. NEVER use "lite" or "sugar-free" peanut butter for your dog treats, as they contain artifical sweeteners that are toxic to dogs.
If your dog has a wheat sensitivity, use brown rice flour instead of wheat flour.


2 cups of oats
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup of organic unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon of baking powder


Preheat oven to 350° F (176° C)

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. 

Melt the coconut oil before adding it to the mixture.

Knead dough until smooth. Add additional applesauce if the

 dough  is too dry, or add additional flour if the dough is too



Roll dough to ¼ inch on floured surface, use cookie cutters to

 make  shaped cookies, or make small dough balls.

Arrange cookies on lined cookie sheet.

Bake for 20-30 minutes until lightly browned.


Let the treats cool off completely, before you feed them!

Remember homemade treats don't have any preservatives in them. You can store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

I hope you enjoy baking for your four-legged friends. Comment below if you like the post and let me know how your cookies turned out.

Until next time: Keep Your Paws on the Road!
