I’ve had a few requests for gluten-free recipes, and I’m always happy to oblige. This Gluten-Free Carob Molasses Dog Treat Recipe uses rice flour to keep the gluten out and the tasty in. Because most gluten-free flours don’t stick together as well as regular flour (the gluten protein is what binds the mixture), I added an egg to help it keep its consistency. And be sure to make these treats thicker (about a ½ inch thick). Any thinner and they’ll crack and break apart. Following these instructions, my batch came out great!

This Gluten-Free Carob Molasses Dog Treat Recipe uses rice flour to keep the gluten out and the tasty in. Makes 40 cookies

Ingredients:

3.5 cups rice flour

1/2 cup dry powdered milk

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 egg

1/4 cup molasses

¼ cup carob chips, melted

1 cup water

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Melt carob chips in a double boiler. I added 1/8 cup water and 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil to make the melted carob mixture smoother.
  3. In a large bowl, mix rice flour, coconut oil, egg, cinnamon, molasses, powdered milk and water together.
  4. Add melted carob to the mixture in the large bowl. Combine into a moist yet stiff dough.
  5. Roll out dough to ½ inch thickness on a rice-floured surface. Cut using cookie cutters and place on cookie sheets.
  6. Bake in oven for 45-50 minutes. Let cool on rack, and store in an air-sealed container or zip lock bag in your refrigerator or freezer.
