Chock Full Of Carob Chip Dog Treat Recipe

PetGuide logo

Chocolate is deadly to dogs, so they miss out on the joys of chocolate chip cookies. But they can have the next best thing – carob! Carob is naturally sweet, low in fat, high in fiber, has calcium, and contains no caffeine. You have to be a bit extra when baking with carob, as it can burn. It’s a good idea to set your oven 25°F lower than usual when baking with this ingredient.

Makes about 30 cookies


2 cups brown rice flour

1.5 cups oat flour

1 cup carob chips

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 egg

1 cup water


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Use a spoon or use your hands to knead the dough to moisten it throughout. Continue until you have a stiff, dry dough.
  3. Roll out dough onto parchment paper or floured countertop. Dough should be ¼ inch thick. Use cookie cutter to cut into desired shapes. Place on lined cookie sheets.
  4. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes. Place on cooking racks and store in fridge or freezer in air tight containers.
