Valentine's Day Heart Shaped Dog Treats
Valentine's Day isn't just for the humans anymore. After all we love and spoil our dogs everyday, so why not pamper them on Valentine's Day too with heart shaped dog treats! I find creating recipes for Teddy to be relaxing and an extra special bonding time for us. Teddy especially likes the clean up part when he gets to pre-rinse the spoon and bowls clean after I'm done baking.
Most of my recipes are easy with a few ingredients and this one isn't any different. These heart shaped dog cookies include coconut flour, coconut oil, eggs and strawberries. That's it! Feel free to use any type of flour. I used coconut flour because it is a healthier option and the white color makes the red in the strawberries stand out. Having worked with coconut flour a few times now, I find it harder to manipulate than other flours. This flour soaks up the wet ingredients and becomes sticky so I use floured hands to roll out the dough.
Whatever flour you choose to use, your dog will be drooling to try them!

Valentine's Day Heart Shaped Dog Treat Recipe
Yields: About 20 cookies
1 Cup of Coconut Flour ( Or Flour Of Choice)
1/2 Cup Cut Strawberries
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
Preheat oven to 350F
Combine coconut flour, coconut oil, and cut strawberries in a bowl.
In another bowl, beat 2 eggs. Slowly pour dry ingredients into bowl with eggs. Mix throughly. Adjust dough with more flour as necessary. When using coconut flour, the consistency of the dough may be wet, sticky and crumbly. Flour your hands and mix into a ball of dough.
Roll out your dough using a floured rolling pin or floured hands. Cut out treats using a cookie cutter. I used these heart shaped cookie cutters to make them more fun for Valentine’s Day.
Place your treats on a cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until edges are crisp.
Cool before enjoying!
Coconut flour tends to soak in wet ingredients and the consistency is more wet and sticky than regular flour. I recommend using floured hands to manipulate your dough instead of a rolling pin.
Using a different flour will change the consistency and time needed to bake the cookies.
