Canine Carob Conversation-Heart Cookies


If your dog has ever looked at you longingly while you’re munching on a chocolate cookie, you’d swear he knows exactly what he’s missing. Luckily, nature has an alternative that’s not toxic to your pooch. Carob comes from the seed pods of a type of Mediterranean evergreen tree, smells remarkably like chocolate, and is full of vitamins, minerals and fiber. With a dough made of brown rice flour, applesauce and carob, these canine cookies are super healthy for your furry bestie. Grab some heart-shaped cookie cutters and letter stamps for customizable love notes and make this fun doggie version of conversation hearts!

Recipe Notes

Sometimes rolling pins pull at dough, causing small tears and marks. To keep the surface smooth, roll out the dough under plastic wrap.
Shelf-life & Storage
Crunchy: Keep stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Treats will last 4 to 6 weeks. Refrigerate for longer shelf-life.
Soft: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freeze for up to 3 months. If your dog doesn’t have teeth issues, there’s no reason you can’t give him a frozen treat.

Add the ingredients to your cart and pamper your pooch!
