When Birmingham Magazine asked me for some dog treats for my monthly food column, I wasn’t sure what to do. Honestly, this is not my area of expertise. I contacted our wonderful veterinarian, Andy, and I asked him to name a couple of ingredients which I could use to develop a cookie that would be good for dogs. I created these No-Bake Dog Treats which are great for people too. These came out fabulous, and my dog, Latte, loved every one of them. Note: For overweight dogs, these should be a “splurge” snack.
No-Bake Dog Treats
12 to 16 servings
1 cup oats
1/2 cup peanut or almond butter
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup granola
1. Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly combined. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Remove from the refrigerator and roll into 1-inch balls. Store in an airtight container between wax paper and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.

oh my puppy would love these I made some peanut butter oat meal biscuits and he loved them, these would be even better as I don't have to bake them :)
Such a cute little stinker you have there!!
And these treats are so great!
They might be dog treats, but they sound delicious--I would totally eat them! :)
HAHAHA Look at that pup! And how great that these are for human consumption too (it's the way it should be)
Shuuuut up! I'm kinda freaking out!
I don't have any dogs, but if I did, I know they'd love these treats!
I don't have a dog, but these actually look mighty tasty for humans too! ;)
This is so cool! I can't wait to get a couple puppies because I definitely plan to make them treats like this all the time!
giving these to my speech class for a dog presentation. i love this idea!!(:
Cute dog! What breed(s)? I have a similar looking "mystery" dog, except mine is chocolate colored. Can't wait to try your recipe.
Don't use granola with raisins, as they are toxic for dogs.
What a clever idea - it'd be perfect as a housewarming gift or something!
My dog so deserves these - and needs these! Making these today!
