Grain-Free Almond Delight Dog Treat Recipe

PetGuide logo

Next up in my adventures in grain-free baking is almond flour. After baking with almond flour, my house smelled amazing! But it’s not just the smell that makes my Grain-Free Almond Delight Dog Treat Recipe a must-try – almond flour (or almond meal, as it’s also called) offers a good amount of manganese and vitamin E, a healthy serving of monounsaturated fats and protein, and is low in carbohydrates and gluten free. I’ve also added coconut old, quinoa flour and carrot to this recipe. Both almond butter and milk are included, but can be substituted with peanut butter and water.

Makes 20 cookies


1 cup almond flour

1 cup quinoa flour

1 egg

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup almond or peanut butter

1/4 cup almond milk or water

1 shredded carrot


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir almond and quinoa flour together. In a smaller bowl, mix egg, melted coconut oil, almond or peanut butter, carrot and almond milk or water.
  3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together in the larger bowl. Mix until a moist dough forms.
  4. Roll dough into a ball and cover in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  5. Roll dough out onto parchment on counter. Using rolling pin, roll out to ½-inch thickness and cut out using cookie cutters.
  6. Place in oven and bake in oven for 20-25 until golden brown. Allow to cool and store in air tight container. Keep in refrigerator or freezer.
