Have you made heart cookies for your pup yet? Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, so you really need to get baking for your dog. I made these honey, peanut butter, oat cookies and they are super delicious! Even our own Madison loves them and we all know she can be a super picky hound!
Baking The Cookies
You know I love to bake, but I am not good at complicated recipes, so this is another easy one anybody can make! Only five ingredients are needed for these cookies, six if you want to do some fancy decorating with carob after they bake and cool. Grab my recipe at the end of this post and start baking!
We got a new food processor and it works perfectly for me and my baking endeavors. I start by grinding up the oats into an oat flour. Next I add in the rest of the ingredients. Pawing at the pulse button with my paw, the ingredients slowly form a nice dough consistency. I flour the counter and roll out the dough. Using my Valentine cookie cutter I cut out my heart cookies. I should end up with around three dozen delightfully tasty cookies.
Since I’m all about the taste, I have to always sample my work. My tongue reaches out and grabs some of my dough. Yes, I can say with 100% certainty, these cookies are going to make dogs drool. Yummy!
It takes a lot of time to cut out all the hearts, but finally I am finished and ready to stick my cookie sheet into the oven. Thankfully they only need to bake about ten minutes. Before we can try them, or decorate them they will need to cool completely. It is below freezing here in Minnesota, so I will put them outside for about five minutes and they will be cooled off.
Decorating Your Heart Cookies
Valentines cookies should be fancy, so I melt some of my carob chips for decorating. I dip some of the hearts in the carob, and I drizzle some carob on the others. Don’t they look nice and fancy?
For serving, load your cookies onto a plate. Be careful not to leave them unattended as you dog will try to steal some. Yes, they are really that tasty!
I am really proud of my Valentines heart cookies as you can see in my smile. Would you like to bake some for your pup? Give my recipe a try. I am certain your furry pup will love these cookies as much as we do. She will be super thankful that you bake for her too!
