Making treats on a snowy afternoon is always a great way to spend the day at home. And you know your dog always wants to be included when treats are involved. What’s better is when you can make treats and you don’t even have to bake them! That’s why these easy do-it-yourself snowball dog cookies are perfect for a snow day. Your dog will be so happy to have their own little morsels to snack on while the snow falls.
Snowball Treat Needs:
- 2 1/2 Cups of Rolled Oats
- 3 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter
- 1/3 Cup Coconut Oil
- 1/3 Cup Finely Shredded Coconut Flakes
- A food processor
How to Do it:
Mix the coconut oil, peanut butter, and rolled oats together in a food processor. The dough should be slightly sticky, but not too wet. If the dough seems like it is too wet then add a few extra oats. If it seems a little too dry, you can add a bit more coconut oil to moisten it up. Once the consistency seems right, use a tablespoon to dip out the dough and roll it in your palms to form a ball.
After you have the balls made, roll them in the coconut flakes. The flakes should be pretty fine so that it looks more like a real so ball. If your flakes are on the chunky side, you can put them in the food processor and chop them up a bit to make them smaller.
Set the covered snowballs onto a baking sheet or a large plate. Then put the balls into the fridge to set. After about 30 minutes your dog will be doing the happy dance while enjoying these delicious little snowball treats!
You can store the cookies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, that is if they last that long!
