Pineapple Coconut Dog Macaroon Recipe

After such a long winter, we can’t wait for the summer to come. Our thoughts turn tropical, wishing for lazy days by the pool and basking in the sun. We wanted to bring a little bit of paradise to our Pineapple Coconut Dog Macaroon Recipe.  Pineapple is sweet and full of fiber. And here’s an interesting fact: if your dog eats his own poop (Coprophagia), feeding pineapple will discourage the practice. After this fruit is digested, it gives your dog poop a distinctive and unappetizing smell, and your dog will forgo his usual snack for more of these homemade treats!

Pineapple and coconut come together in a topical delight that’s just for dogs.Makes 30 cookies

Ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose flour

8 ounce can crushed pineapple

1 cup shredded coconut

⅓ cup molasses

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine pineapple, egg, molasses and vanilla. Mix well.
  3. Add coconut and flour, stirring until a sticky dough is formed.
  4. Because this is such a sticky dough, spoon it out in tablespoon portions on baking sheets. Space cookies 2 inches apart so they don’t stick together.
  5. Bake in oven for 30-40 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool for an hour.
  7. Store in air tight bags or container and keep in fridge or freezer until needed.

These are soft cookies, which makes them perfect for dogs with dental problems who can tolerate hard treats.
