Made from nutritious coconut flour to help nourish the skin and coat, these grain-free cookies are perfect for dogs with grain allergies or sensitivities. They are flavoured with real peanut butter and made entirely from whole foods. It cost me a mere $4 and some change to make a large container of cookies, which makes them extremely cost effective! On top of that, they only took approximately 30 minutes to make. These cookies are big on flavour and small in the cost and time department!
You can substitute the coconut flour with whole wheat flour if that is your preference. Be aware that coconut flour absorbs more liquid than your typical grain flour. This means you will have to add more water to accommodate the potentially dry batter.
- 2 cups of coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 cup of smooth or crunchy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup of hot water (add more if needed!)
- Preheat oven to 360 degrees F.
- In a large bowl combine the coconut flour and baking powder.
- In a separate bowl add the eggs, honey, water, oil, and the peanut butter and then whisk everything together until combined.
- Add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture and combine.
- Place the batter in your size and shape of preference on a cookie sheet on parchment paper (or a non-stick pan).
- Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Shape these however you want since this is a versatile cookie batter. I always make the bite sized balls, approximately one inch in size. Perfect bite sized pieces for a big German Shepherd mouth!
These are definitely Hunter's favourite cookies. He leaves a pile of drool behind when he is done snacking on these delicious peanut butter treats!
