DIY – Homemade Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Dog Cookie Recipe

September 12, 2014 3 min read

Anyone who knows me knows how obsessed I am with my pups! Please meet Jack (German Sheppard/Pit Bull Mix) and Snoopy (Full Blue Nose American Pit Bull)! Also, for anyone who knows me, knows how cheap I am! Lol Now, not all store bought dog treats are bad, but I just have a general rule of thumb – if it’s not all natural, I just won’t give it to my pups. Typical Store bought dog treats, such as the imitation bacon treats or similar treats are extremely high in calories. You wouldn’t give your kid cookies every day after every meal, so why would you give your pets them? If you choose to give them to your pups, it should just be very rarely.  Some dogs have allergies to these types so you have to watch for skin and coat allergies. On top of skin allergies, they are horrible for your dog’s teeth! Either way, I choose to bake my own puppy cookies because of all those undesirable additives, including preservatives. Other benefits for baking your own dog treats: -          You determine the quality of the ingredients you are using -          The recipe could be altered for any dietary restriction or allergies your pups might have -          It is easy -          It’s quick to mix up a batch that could last for a few weeks – while you’re doing your own meal prep, go ahead and prep for the furry babies in the house as well -          It is inexpensive. Most recipes cost a fraction to make as opposed to store bought – and chances are you already have the ingredients laying around the house. Try out this quick easy recipe for your DIY Homemade Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Dog Cookie! Your pups will LOVE it! Ingredients: -          2 cups whole wheat flour (add in extra flour if needed, if the dough is too sticky) -          1 cup rolled oats -          1/3 cup peanut butter (I use crunchy because well, my pups are picky and that’s what they like haha) -          1 ¼ cup hot water Directions: -          Preheat oven to 350 -          Mix dry ingredients together first -          Mix in the peanut butter and add the hot water. -          Knead the dough -          Roll out the dough into a ¼” thickness and cut into shapes with your favorite cookie cutter -          Optional: Egg Wash
  • Make an egg wash and brush onto the cookies before baking. This gives the cookies a nice sheen
-          Place in over and bake for 40 minutes -          Turn off the oven and allow the cookies to cool in oven overnight – this will make them nice and hard just how dogs like them! One thing you have to remember is these will not last very long! Since they are natural and not made with all the Preservatives like store bought treats that are meant to last forever, make sure you are checking them every few days to see if they turn. Mine usually last about a week and a half to two weeks. These are also great for presents around the holidays – hence the ginger bread cookie cut out.  Place them in a small mason jar, tie a ribbon around them with a gift tag and easy and great gift for all your dog lover friends! Comment below and let me know how your pups liked them!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
