Apple Oatmeal Dog Cookies

I found this recipe on the For the Love of Pooch website - a page I'd highly recommend for all pet lovers, especially those who want to try baking for their furry friends.


1 cup of instant oatmeal
1 tsp baking powder
1.5 cups of whole wheat flour
1 egg
1 cup of finely chopped sweet apples
2 tablespoons olive oil
0.5 cup water

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix oatmeal, flour, and baking powder
  • Stir in egg, apples, olive oil, and water
  • Knead the dough for a minute. It should be moist, but not wet.
  • Scoop out in 0.5 tablespoon increments and press into a cookie shape
  • Bake for 20 minutes


Cool the cookies thoroughly before storing. They can be stored in an airtight container for up to two weeks, in the fridge for up to two months, or in the freezer for up to eight months.

Again, all credit goes to For the Love of Pooch =)


  1. Yummy, love apples...will have to try this one.

  2. And you're good at baking! My dogs mostly run in front of my feet asking when the treats will be ready. They're not interested in house work at all; only computers. Typical kids, LOL!
