On the heals of another dog treat recall, I present a “Homemade Coconut and Pear Dog Cookie Recipe” from K9Instinct.
A healthy, nutritious homemade coconut and pear dog cookie recipe that is grain free and egg free, making it ideal for dogs with allergies or food sensitivities! Coconut flour is grain and gluten free and is a healthy, low carbohydrate alternative to bleached grain flour.
Coconut flour is especially good for helping to improve the skin and coat. Coconut oil is a healthy, easily digestible oil that helps improve the skin and coat condition! Raw, local honey is also great for dogs with allergies and adds a healthy sweetness to the treat! Lastly, this recipe uses pear puree (or baby food) as a main flavor ingredient and is sure to satisfy your dogs!
Due to a lack of preservatives in this recipe, these cookies will need to be stored in the refrigerator and can also be frozen!
* 1/2 cup of coconut flour
* 1/2 cup of pear puree or pear baby food
* 1 tablespoon of raw, local honey
* 2 tablespoons of virgin, unrefined coconut oil
* 3 tablespoons of water
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Combine ingredients, mix thoroughly.
3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
4. Roll dough into small balls, place on parchment paper.
5. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
Making dog treats from home using healthy homemade recipes is the best way to provide nutritious treats that are easy to make, inexpensive, and do not contain any harmful or dangerous ingredients. Making your own dog cookies at home is the best way to avoid pet treat recalls and keep your furry family healthy and safe!
Note: I made these myself, and didn’t add enough water, even though I added more than the recipe calls for, so mine were rather dry. My suggestion is to add enough water so that the mixture is completely moist, and bake accordingly.
