Protein Free Dog Treat Recipe

So I went to a dog fair today and thought it would be fun to make some treats for the pups that would be at the event.  While I did not know it when I was making the treats, when people asked me for the ingredients,  a few were delighted that they were “protein-free” because their dogs were allergic to protein.  So for anyone looking for a very easy, tasty, protein-free dog treat, this recipe is for you.  Kisses to your pups!


  • 2 cups of whole oats (old fashioned Oatmeal)
  • 2 cups of flour (I used tapioca flour but any flour will do)
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons of honey
  • 4 tablespoons of water or vegetable stock


  • Preheat oven to 400
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and form them into dough.
  • Roll out the dough and cut out your favorite shapes for the cookies.  If you do not have a cookie cutter, don’t worry, use anything that can form a shape.  Depending on my mood, I will use a dog bone cookie cutter or a screw-off bottle top which will make smaller cookies.
  • Place the cookies on a greased cookie sheet.  Since there is no leavening agent used, you can put the cookies very close together.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.  For crunchier cookies, turn off the oven and leave the cookies in there for another 30 minutes.
  • Cook cookies on a wire rack
  • Store in a seal-tight container
