Keep a steady supply of these cookies on hand for your canine pal.


  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 4 chicken bouillon cubes (low-sodium)
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1½ cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup nonfat milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • All-purpose flour (to sprinkle)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

Mix together the oats, bouillon cubes, and margarine in a large bowl. Add the boiling water and allow the heat to dissolve the bouillon cubes and margarine. Add the remaining ingredients except the all-purpose flour. Form the mix into a big ball, adding flour as needed to make a stiff dough.

Roll out the dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Use dog- or bone-shaped cookie cutters to cut out cookie shapes. Place them on the cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Let the cookies cool completely before offering as treats.

Arden Moore has a few more of the homemade, healthy dog treat recipes from her book to share. (Have you seen the ones people can eat, too?)

I want to make this treat because I believe it will be healthy compared to most that you can buy in a store.

I can't wait to try this! I think I'll add some Brewer's Yeast since it's so good for their coat
