Dog Cookie Recipe: Double Seeds Gone Nuts

Today's Latte's birthday and he gets a double treat! Besides baking him a huge batch of Double Seeds Gone Nuts cookies, he got to chomp on his own doggy birthday cake - a Honey Peanut-Butter Cake.
I always steal a little of his cookies (i bake it anyway :p) and found it a little too bland for me. I believe in not adding too much flavoring like sugar and salt since dogs don't need their food to taste 'good' in our human sense.
Latte loves these cookies and I bet all the baking helped release the aroma from the double seeds and nut. Check out an earlier post on the nutrition of flaxseeds and sunflower seeds.

  • 2 cups of wholemeal flour
  • 1/4 cup flaxseeds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 3 tbs natural peanut butter (no salt and sugar)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3/4 cup water
1. Grind the flaxseeds and sunflower seeds in a blender until coarse.
2. Mix everything except the oil and water in a mixing bowl.
3. Add oil and water to the flour mixture - add the water gradually while kneading the dough. It's one of the best doughs we've worked with, it's non-sticky and very easy to handle - great for cookie cutters.
4. Bake at 180˚C for 20 mins. Let the cookies cool in the oven and store in an air-tight container.
