Cookies for Sparky

A friend posted this recipe that she had recently baked for her dogs and piqued my baking curiosity.  Feeling a little restless, I decided to whip up some of these treats for the pooch.

The recipe looked relatively simple but while trying to form the shapes of the cookies, the dough became really sticky and I wondered if it’s because I hadn’t added enough flour.  Took a quick glance at the recipe which I followed to the tee so I don’t know what went wrong..hmm.

So if you are game to bake up some healthy treats for your fur-kids, here’s the recipe:

Bonnie’s Banana Cookies (taken from Baking for your dog)

Ingredients: (Recipe makes around 30 cookies)

  • 2 carrots
  • 1 banana
  • 7 oz.(200g) all purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 oz.(100g) fine rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 fl. oz.(50ml) sunflower oil
  • water as required


  1. Grate the carrots finely and mash the banana with a fork.  Mix to make a dough with the flour, rolled oats, and oil.  If necessary, add a little water.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.  Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
  3. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thick and cut squares. ( I used a crown-shaped cookie cutter – a gift from my sister).
  4. Place cookies on the baking pan and bake for 25 minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat and let cool overnight in the oven.  Store in a paper or linen bag.  The cookies will keep for about 3 weeks.

If you do bake these cookies, let me know how these turn out for you.

      It was a house-warming gift from a dear friend. She didn’t know what to get us but knew we love Sparky to bits, so decided to get a present for him instead. Hehe

    Sparky is a one handsome boy! I want a dog now but we would have to wait abit because I dont think I can handle a puppy, a baby and two cats now. Maybe later on.. Love that food bowl.. 🙂

      That would really be a handful! 😉 I guess you can always consider getting a dog once Baby Sunshine is a little bigger.
