No-Bake Hidden Treasure Cookies

I got the idea for this recipe from a batch of “human cookies” that have a Hershey’s Kiss hidden in the center. I switched up the ingredients to make these cookies dog friendly, but they are still really tasty for humans too. The cookies are also very quick to prepare and travel really well on long walks or car trips.

If you want to be extra fancy, you can roll the treats in finely chopped peanuts (unsalted), shredded coconut, or carob powder before putting them in the refrigerator to set.

No-Bake Hidden Treasure Cookies

Makes about 45 treats

 

2/3 cup natural peanut butter, no salt added

2 tablespoons honey

3/4 cup oat bran

2 tablespoons wheat germ

Unsweetened carob chips, as needed (about 1/3 cup)

 

1. Place the peanut butter, honey, oat bran, and wheat germ in a bowl, and stir until well combined.

2. Take about 1 teaspoon of the mixture, and form it into a ball around 1 carob chip. Repeat until you’ve used all of the mixture.

3. Allow the cookies to set in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.

 

These treats should be stored in the refrigerator. They also freeze well—you can actually serve them right out of the freezer if your dog likes chilly treats.
