It’s All Greek Yogurt To Me Dog Treat Recipe

One of my favorite snacks has to be Greek yogurt. Smooth, creamy and rich, Greek yogurt is a little taste of the Mediterranean you can enjoy in the middle of the day. And I’m so glad I can share it with Oscar… in the form of a homemade treat. For my “It’s All Greek Yogurt To Me” Dog Treat Recipe, I combined oatmeal, yogurt and peanut butter to add a dog-friendly flavor to this cookie.

Makes about 35-40 treats

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup oats

½ teaspoon parsley

1 egg

2 tablespoons peanut butter

1/2 cup natural Greek yogurt

Water (as needed)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Combine oats, parsley and flour in medium-sized mixing bowl. Add eggs and peanut butter, stirring until well combined.
  3. Add Greek yogurt to the mix. Stir until a firm dough is formed. If the mixture is too dry, add small amounts of water until it’s stiff.
  4. Roll out dough onto floured surface to ¼ to ½ inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters and place on parchment-lined cookie sheets.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove and let cool. Use air-tight containers or bags, and store in fridge or freezer.

I recommend that you poke some fork holes in the middle of this treat. I whipped up a first batch, but pesky air bubbles caused some major aesthetic issues. For my second round, a few pokes with the fork solved that problem, and I was able to dip the perfectly formed treats in melted carob chips to add a bit of pizzazz and sweetness. Give them a try and let me know what you think.
