I am so happy with how these homemade dog treats turned out, and I can’t wait for you to make them for your “goodest” boys and girls! If you do, can you please post a picture/story on Instagram and tag or DM me? I would love to see it!! @house_fur
I have other treats on the blog that have peanut butter in them and to be frank, Vík isn’t crazy about them because he has never been a fan of peanut butter. Kenzo, on the other hand, goes nuts for anything with peanut butter in it and devours those treats in seconds.
I wanted to make a dog treat that I knew Vík would go crazy for and today was the day!
One thing I will never understand is why dogs love cheese so much. In what natural scenario in the wild would canines ever have been introduced to cheese? haha
Anyways, Vík (and Kenzo) love cheddar cheese so I wanted to make a homemade dog treat that Vík would really enjoy. Vík also prefers his treats to be crunchy, vs soft, so I made sure to bake these a tad longer than my other treats so they would be crunchier for him. Wow. He is kinda spoiled, eh? But, I don’t consider it spoiled, I consider it “so loved.”
I hope your dog enjoys these homemade cheddar dog treats as much as my boys do!
Triple Cheddar Dog Treats
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 20 minutes
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: Depends on the size of your cookie molds (mine made about 12 dog treats)
- 2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
- 3 Tablespoons of Refined Coconut Oil
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup Kraft Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Put old-fashioned oats into a blender or food processor. Place the lid on, and give it a go on high speed until the oats start to turn into a course flour consistency.
- Add the Eggs, Coconut Oil, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese to the blender/food processor and set to pulse for 1-2 minutes.
- Scoop spoonfuls into your silicone baking sheet and press down to fill the molds. I used this one for the dog Bones & Paws shapes, but any silicone mold will do just fine.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until browned on the top
- Remove from the oven.
- Pop treats out of silicone mold.
- Allow the treats to cool completely before giving to your dog.
- Cover and store leftovers at room temperature or in the refrigerator. These treats will look and feel a little denser than a typical human-grade Oatmeal cookie.
How Do I Store Dog Treats?
These homemade dog treats should be stored just like cookies in an airtight container for up to one week.
Can These Dog Treats Be Frozen?
After they have cooled, place in a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 2 months.
