Easy, Healthy Dog Cookies On The Grill, are just that; easy. Oh, and healthy. I make delicious treats all the time for sharing with friends and family, and most importantly, you the reader, but I hadn’t made anything for my furry assistant who cleans the floor while I work. This simple recipe is made with wholesome ingredients that you would already have in your kitchen and is even edible if you wanted to try them. They will make your furry friends’ tongues and tails wag.

Easy, Healthy Dog Cookies

Serves: 24 Cookies       Total Time: 30 Minutes


  • 1 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
  • ¼ cup of peanut butter
    (Try our homemade peanut butter)
  • ¼ cup of coconut oil, softened
  • 3 cups of old fashioned oats +more as needed
  • whole wheat flour for dusting
    (regular flour works too)


Step 1
Preheat your grill to 375°F, preparing to use the indirect grilling method.
Step 2
Combine the apple sauce, peanut butter, and the coconut oil in a bowl. If the coconut oil is super hard, you may want to melt it a little first, it should be the same consistency as butter or peanut butter, however, if you accidentally liquefy it, that’s ok too. (Speaking of peanut butter, did you amp this recipe up by using our recipe for homemade peanut butter?)
Step 3
Add the oats to the peanut butter mixture. The dough should come together and not be too sticky. Add more oats until the dough no longer sticks to and stays on your fingers when you touch it.
Step 4
Lightly flour a work surface and roll the dough out, kneading it a couple of times before rolling it out until it’s about ¼–inch thick. Use a small cookie cutter, preferably bone-shaped, to cut out cookies. Place them onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Re-roll the leftover dough and repeat until all of the dough is used. Alternatively you can roll little balls, about 1-inch in diameter, and bake them. That way, you won’t need to use a rolling pin or a cookie cutter.
Step 5
Bake using indirect heat for 15 minutes, or until the edges are starting to turn golden brown.
Step 6
Allow the Dog Cookies to cool on a rack or in the pan before treating your pupper to a tasty treat.

Making these Easy Healthy Dog Cookies On The Grill was by far, simpler than trying to get a couple of photos with the treats and the dog. She enjoyed the treats more than taking the photos, but we all had a good time. Have you ever made treats for your pet on the grill? Dropping a hot dog doesn’t count. 

Happy Grilling!
