Blueberry Dog Cookies

Blueberry Dog Cookies - simple & healthy DIY snack for your dog! Lolathepitty.com

A few weeks ago, I bought almond flour to make macaroons. Well I had almost an entire bag sitting around and didn’t want it to go to waste so I whipped up these puppies…haha (pun intended).

This may be one of my favorite dog treat recipes I’ve made…

I’m seriously considering adding a little sugar and more moisture to the batter and baking another batch for myself – they were that good. Regardless, I may or may not have ate about 5 of these myself.

These blueberry dog treats are a slightly chewy, slightly crisp (tiny) cookie that I broke in half and fed as a little treat to Lola and Rio.

I’ll be honest, my dogs aren’t really the best judge of flavor – Rio’s favorite snack, if he were to choose, would be sticks. And Lola, well…fairly certain she’s never tasted anything she’s eaten in her life as she literally inhales all food. So you can just trust me on this one – these are awesome.

    Love it! I’m hesitant to use almond flour for Sugar but I read many benefits of using nut flour. Golden Thanks for sharing. Happy Tasty Tuesday. Golden Woofs

      Hi there! Yes, I also had to research it. I found that almond meal was safe but too many whole almonds are not great for dogs – strange. Thanks for stopping by!

        Could whole wheat flour be used in place of the almond and rice flour? Just wondering because I saw another dog treat recipe that used whole wheat flour.

          Yes – sure could! This is just a grain free option :).

          More than not dogs have allergies to wheat. My dogs love the almond flour meal.

    Can’t wait to make these for our grain-free fed bulldogs! However, rice is a grain…so this recipe is NOT grain free, but it’s gluten free. I will simply replace the rice flour with coconut flour and add an egg to the mixture (2 eggs total) for the grain free version.

      Thanks for catching that, Carlene! I’m fixing that in the recipe now :). I hope your bulldogs enjoy the modified version, I’m sure they will!

      I am not sure how much coconut flour to use when doing the conversion you mentioned. I am new at using it and very confused how to work it into recipes. Can you please share how much coconut flour you used with the 2 eggs?

      • March 3, 2015 at 6:13 pm — Reply

        Hi Deb, I would use the same amount! This is a pretty giving recipe :). Thanks!

      Hi, can we use Garbanzo or Potato flour instead of Almond/Brown rice flour for a 1 to 1 ratio? Would there need to be extra binder?

    Isn’t it so confusing having a grain free pooch esp if you have other pooches that can eat anything! I do get in a muddle with lot if recipes saying this flour or that flour or say there’s a substitute to make it with a grain free flour. So now after reading these comments if I change recipes to coconut flour I need to use more wet things ie it’s suggested here to use an extra egg – what flour is best when making grain free stuff and is it as simple as just changing the flour over for every recipe or not – I thought I could cook but now I question myself!!!!! HELP! Many thanks … Ooh keep I. Mind too that in this silly little country (the UK) it’s quite hard to find some ingredients etc! Xx

    Just love these, such a healthy yummy treat, featuring one of nature’s superfoods, the blueberry! I’ve been on the lookout for a recipe to make for Christmas to give out at the Christmas party we have at dog training, as well as for Christmas gifts and these will be perfect! I also dipped a few in some organic additive free peanut butter and my dog Charlie went nuts. Thanks for all the great recipes! 🙂
