Recipe: Carob Cookies for Dogs

Carob Cookies for Dogs

Carob is made from the pod of a carob tree. There is a sweet pulp inside the pod that is dried, roasted and then ground into a powder. It has a nuttier flavor than cocoa that is appetizing to both dogs and people.



Carob Cookies

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 3 tbsp. carob powder
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. raw honey


  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp. raw honey


Preheat your oven to 400˚F.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal and carb powder together. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the water, oil, egg, honey and peanut butter. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and continue to knead until it forms a ball of dough.

Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until it is about 1/4″ thick. You cookie cutters to cut desired shapes. You could also cut the dough into small squares using a pizza dough cutter or butter knife.

Lay the cookies on a well greased cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. You’ll know they are done because they’ll be darker and begin to crack on the top.

If you’d like to frost the cookies, you can prepare the glaze while the cookies are baking. Combine the yogurt, cornstarch and honey in a small bowl. Whisk until smooth.

Once these carob cookies for dogs have completely cooled, you can spread a small amount of glaze on top of each. I use a fine tipped frosting bag to draw designs on the cookies.
