Today was puppy spa day at the Langley household.  Astrid hates puppy spa day.  She doesn’t like getting her nails done, she can’t stand getting a bath, and she barely tolerates getting brushed. She cries through the whole experience. It’s really pathetic and you’d think she was being abused. 

Hiccup isn’t crazy about any of it, but he deals with it.  The one thing they look forward to on puppy spa day is their puppy cookies.  So in observance (I can’t say celebration or Astrid will get mad at me) I’m posting my recipe for Puppy Cookies.

Puppy Cookies


1&1/2 cups of oat flour (it’s just ground up oats)

1&1/2 cups of brown rice flour

1/2 cup of peanut butter (creamy or chunky)

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon of honey

1 egg

1/2 cup of water (more can be added to get the right consistency)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients, but add water last. Roll out and cut with cookie cutters. Bake for 22-28 minutes.

Note: These cookies don’t rise, so they will be the same size before and after baking. I put them in a glass jar in the freezer and they last quite awhile. Out of the freezer, they probably last a week or two.

Alas, all is well, the puppy cookies are in the oven.
