Blueberry Dog Cookies

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

A few weeks ago, I bought baking ingredients to make macaroons. Well, I didn’t want to leave Lola and Rio out 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.

    1. 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!

      1. 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.

  1. 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.

    1. 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!

    2. 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?

    3. Can I ask why you add an extra egg? I also was wondering if I could use coconut flour instead of rice flour! Thanks for your ideas!

      1. Coconut flour takes extra moisture. So the final result would be drier if you use the same amount of coconut flour as you do rice and almond flour. You would need to add the extra egg or more liquid to get the same consistency.

    1. 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?

  2. 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

    1. Coconut flour is grain free. My fur baby has allergies & that’s what I was told to use.
      Extra egg in Coconut flour is said to make it more workable. Coconut flour is dry.
      Yoy need to check the conversion on line cause it takes less coconut oil than whole wheat.
      Hope this helps

  3. 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! 🙂

  4. Be careful with almond four. I just made some treats for my dog with it. Found out right after that almonds are full of fat and can cause pancreatitis. So…will not be giving hardly any to her. If I do they will be very small portions. I will use oat powder next time or spelt flour. I think I’ll glaze them with sugar and eat them myself. Actually I did eat a couple and they were good, just not sweet. I’ll make more for the dog with something else.
    This was my first attempt and I had thought that almond four was ok, but looked into it further and for the above information.
