My boxer LOVES these cookies. Easy to digest, gluten-free cookies.
I did not create this recipe, I just edited the ingredients a bit to make them gluten-free. I had a lab with megaesophagus and she had trouble digesting food, so these were made specifically for her - but my boxer absolutely LOVES them! The drooling starts when I put them in the oven.
Pumpkin Oatmeal Dog Cookie recipe. It makes about 4 dozen cookies
What you need:
2 cups of rice flour (available in the health foods area usually)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of steel cut oatmeal, uncooked. I buy gluten free
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 small can of pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth)
1 – 2 teaspoons water, as needed
Preheat oven to 350
Spray cooking spray on cookie sheets. I use Pam Baking Spray
In one bowl, mix dry ingredients and set aside
In a larger bowl, mix wet ingredients. Make sure the peanut butter is mixed in well. You can use a mixer, or a spoon.
Then combine all ingredients. It will be thick and dry. Add a little water so that you can get it all mixed up.
I like to chill the dough for 15 minutes or so before starting, but its not necessary.
Take teaspoonfuls of dough and place on cookie sheet. I put 12 on each sheet. Then press them down into a circular shape. Thin, maybe 1/8 inch thick.
Put into oven for 14 minutes. Flip cookies and cook for another 14 minutes.
Cool completely on cooling rack. Then store in airtight container in the refrigerator. You don’t have to put in the frig – but they last longer if you do.
I am not sure how long they stay good in or out of the frig. Since our doggies love them so much, we use up our bag in about a week and a half.
Note: if you have a smaller dog, you can make the cookies smaller. This size is perfect for my large dogs.
I hope your dogs enjoy this Gluten free Pumpkin Oatmeal dog cookie recipe!
