Dogolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are universally adored. Whether they’re hot and melty or cold and chewy, there’s no wrong way to enjoy these delectable treats. Unless, of course, you’re a dog. Unfortunately, dogs will never be able to share in the magical taste of chocolate chip cookies. It’s common knowledge that chocolate is toxic to dogs and cats, which puts them on the no-no list for pets. What’s not common knowledge is that there is a chocolate substitute that is safe for dogs and cats to enjoy! Say hello to carob.

Carob is made from the naturally sweet pods of the carob tree, and has a similar taste to chocolate. Unlike chocolate, however, carob is free of theobromine, the chemical that makes chocolate toxic to dogs. This means that you can make dog-safe carob chip cookies for your pups to enjoy. These cookies are customizable, easy to make, and a fun activity you can do for your dog. The best part is that your pets will never complain about your baking skills, so if they come out a little burnt, you won’t hear a peep from your pooches.

One of the best positives about making your own dog treats is that you know exactly what went in to them. There are no dangerous chemicals in this recipe, just delicious ingredients that are safe for both people and pets. The first ingredient, pumpkin, is high in fiber, which is great for your dog’s digestion. The second ingredient, peanut butter, is high in protein, and is just plain delicious. And the carob chips add a sweet flavor that your dog will go crazy for.
