Carrot Dog Cookies

Today is the pup’s second birthday! I can’t believe it, they are growing up so fast!

I decided to make them a puppy cake – that’ll be the next post!

But one of the main ingredients in the cake was a cup of shredded carrots….  Not sure what i was thinking but i ended up shredding probably 3-4 cups of baby carrots! So…  what does one do when they have too many carrots and the oven is already on…  I took the original recipe i started with for making cookies for the pups and replaced the cranberries with carrots and whala!


  • 2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup dry milk powder
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 egg – beaten
  • 2/3 cup to 1 cup water


1. Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, stir together all the ingredients and 2/3 cup water, adding more water as needed if the dough is too stuff (i’d use my kitchenaid mixer next time, stiring with a spoon is a pain!)

2. Instead of cutting out the cookies i picked up a trick from mom – take the ball of dough, put it on silpat, roll it out to the 1/4 inch, and using a pizza cutter – cut it into desired size pieces! Put the whole cookie sheet in the oven, bake until crisp  40 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool, break them into their pieces before they get too hard!

The boys gobble them up as well as helping to clean the bowl!
