You’re Dog Will Love Them!
Here are some cute doggie cookies you can make at home. If you’re familiar with the Pokemon game, you’ll know that Poke Balls are used to catch and store Pokemon. If you’re not familiar with the game, just trust me. I Googled it because I didn’t have a clue what a Poke Ball was.
Below is a recipe for Poke Ball cookies for your dog. They are a little tricky to make, but if you follow the directions and watch the video, they step you right through making them.
If you’re dogs are anything like mine, they love any kind of treat. I’m sure they’ll appreciate them. If you have young kids in the house (the two legged kind ) I’m sure they’ll like the Pokemon theme.
Also, this time of year it’s getting a bit cooler so you probably won’t mind heating up the kitchen by baking cookies.
Check out the video below the recipe for visual instruction. Then please use the buttons on this page to pass this recipe onto all your dog (and Pokemon) loving friends.
Poke Ball Dog Treats
2 Cups of Coconut Flour
2 Cup of Oat Flour
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 Cup Water (room temperature)
2 Tbps Coconut Oil (the liquid kind)
Dog Safe Fondant (Can be ordered from: https://www.pastries4pets.com/)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together coconut flour and oat flour. In a small bowl mix together the applesauce, egg, water, and coconut oil. Once it is all mixed, slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. The dough should not stick to your fingers. If it does, add a touch more flour. If it’s too wet, add a touch of water.
Once you get your dough perfect, flour your surface and then roll the dough out to about 1/4 inch thick. This is where the adjustable rolling pin comes in handy! Now take your donut cutter, and cut out your Poke Balls! Place them onto your baking sheet lined with parchment paper, or a silicone liner. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes. If you want them to be extra crunchy, turn your oven off after they are done baking and leave them inside it to cool.
Fondant for Dogs
Once your Poke Ball dog treats are cooled, it’s time to play with the fondant. We made, white, black, and red fondant, and rolled it out as thin as we could. We used dog safe food coloring that we also purchased at Pastries 4 Pets. We cut the red and white with the same cookie cutter we used for the cookies, then cut them in half, and layered them on the cookie with a bit of cream cheese under it to hold it down. Then we cut the small white circle, a bit bigger of a black circle, and the black lines, and they turned out as you see in the photo below! Watch the video at the top of the page for more details on how that was done!
