Homemade Dog Cookies

It was Hayden’s Birthday yesterday and I can’t believe he’s already nine years old! Today, I made him some delicious (they smelled delicious) homemade dog cookies – I know I’m such a good brother.

I saw this recipe on a towel in my neighbor’s kitchen with the heading “Healthy Dog Cookies” and decided to try them out. However, I swapped out cornmeal for another helping of rolled oats. Although, I sent the 1/2 cup of rolled oats through the food processor. They are really simple to make and if didn’t know they were dog cookies, I would have been eating the dough myself!

I had two different sized cookie cutters. I was able to make 90 cookies from the 1.5 inch cookie cutter, and 32 from the 2 inch cookie cutter. So over 122 cookies in total! I made two batches of these to split between the 15 dogs in our family for Christmas. They loved them!
