Human-Friendly Dog Cookies

One of our pack leaders here at Dogtopia of Alexandria wanted to share a recipe she picked up from Chef George Duran from the Food Network. They are delicious doggie (and human) treats! The recipe is as follows:

2 cups whole wheat flour
½ cup cornmeal
½ cup wheat germ
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 large eggs
¼ cup carob chips
¼ cup honey
2 to 3 tablespoons water, as needed

Heat oven to 350 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Put the cinnamon, cornmeal, flour and wheat germ into a large bowl and mix to combine. Add the carob chips, eggs, honey and 1 tablespoon of water. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together to form a smooth dough. Add water if it feels to dry. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for 10 minutes.

Dust your counter with some flour and roll out the dough to ¼ inch thickness. Cut into shapes using a dog bone cookie cutter. Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the cookies are well browned. Remove them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once they’re cool, be sure to eat lots of these scrumptious treats, but be sure to share with your two-legged friends.

*Recipe can also be found on the food network site.
