    Is coconut flour a necessity or can I use whole wheat flour for these? They sound so interesting!

    Wheat flour would work just fine Erin, let me know how the pups like them. Woof!

    I tried to make these today but the dough was very moist and crumbly. It would not hold together when kneaded or when rolled out onto a floured surface.

    I also could not get it to come out of my cookie cutter without sticking and breaking. There is no way I am getting 3-4 dozen cookies…what am I doing wrong?

    I’m sorry you had trouble Vanessa I’m not a big fan of coconut flour myself because it’s so hard to work with! I used very small cookie cutter (1/2 inch) because the dough doesn’t hold together well enough for anything larger. It might work better as a drop treat, just scoop 1/2 teaspoon of the dough onto the baking sheet and bake it that way. I’m sorry you had troubles.

    Thanks for reponding :)

    I think we had the same thought that it was the coconut flour to blame (but it made your recipie smell sooo good). Would it be possible to subsitute a different flour, such as white rice or white wheat?

    I like your idea of it being a drop cookie, I think that would work and I will have to try it out. I was also thinking it might work as mini pupcakes if I use my mini muffin trays. Do you think that would work?

    The dough doesn’t rise so I’m sure it would work in a muffin pan but it wouldn’t ‘puff up’. Those two flours would work great, and would probably be a lot easier to work with too!

    i just made my second batch of your delightful yummy treats. My three, four legged kids always enjoy your delightful recipes. Been using them for about five weeks now. I ve been sharing the fruits of our labor with the neighborhood woofers as well. They all eat them up fast!
    To keep up with the yummies I do two different types at a time.
    The tomato paste and carrots were my first batch. However, This easy peasy banana recipe has me worried though… The dough didn’t seem moist enough. So I did add a few tablespoons of water to get them to stick a little more. Then formed balls and pressed them down .
    I did do some switching of incredients though replaced the pumpkin purée for sweet potatoes purée and added cinnamon had to make a tripple batch. My kids really have loved all of your treats. I just hope these don’t fall apart prior to getting to their mouths… I have never seen these three 60-70 lb beauties ever get crazy over the cookie jar as the do now with your recipes. It’s really funny to watch them. They have no idea of what might come next. Thank you for your precious gift. It has brought so much joy to us all.

    Thank you so much Monica, and I’m so happy you’re modifying it and making it work for you and your pups. I understand your concern, no one wants to have issues when giving treats to pups that big! haha I’m happy you found some recipes that work for you. Woof!

    This is the only homemade treat I have found that didn’t have any ingredient that wasn’t good for my dog. He has calcium oxalate stones and he can’t have peanut butter or and veggies that have octate in them…and flour isn’t good for him so using coconut flour was awesome. …thank you so much

    Are the cookies supposed to be a bit soft/crumbly? They didn’t really brown or harden. They are soft to the touch.

    They are Ashley, they are more soft then crunchy.
