We know you love treating your dogs, so Head Vet Sean has created The Happy Dog Cookbook with Annabel Karmel, leading children’s cookery author and family food expert. It’s a collection of 24 delicious recipes to reward your dog in a healthier and nutritious way, plus there are plenty of tips on nutrition, health and weight control.

To give both you and your pup a taste of The Happy Dog Cookbook, check out our apple, cranberry & peanut butter oat cookies which are made with antioxidant-rich cranberries and irresistible peanut butter, yum!


  • 165g coconut flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 40g porridge oats
  • 25g desiccated coconut
  • 40g dried cranberries, chopped
  • 40g dried apple, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 heaped tbsp xylitol-free peanut butter
  • 3 eggs, beaten


  • Bone-shaped cookie cutters


  1. Preheat the oven to 140°C (fan)/gas 3 and line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Put the flour, oats, coconut, cranberries, apple and cinnamon into a food processor and whiz until finely chopped. Add the peanut butter, eggs and 6 tablespoons or water and whiz again until mixture comes together into a dough.
  3. Dust a work surface with a little coconut flour. Lightly knead the dough until workable, then roll out to 1½ cm thick.
  4. Cut out shapes using doggy cookie cutters to make bones or paws, and lay them on the prepared baking trays. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  5. Transfer to a wire rack to cool before treating your tail-wagging sidekick.
  6. Store the cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.

  1. I have been looking for dog treat and cake recipes for a long time, but I am concerned about this recipe as it contains coconut and coconut flour. I read and copied down all the things you shouldn’t give a dog, example onions, chocolate, etc etc including coconut. So now I’m not sure whether to go ahead and make these treats dog. Can you help me out with an awnser with this please? Many thanks.

    • Hi Sandra,

      All the recipes from the book were developed by our head vet sean, and the ingredients are all dog safe, including coconut flour/oil. the main thing to watch with coconut oil/flour is that it is high in saturated fat, so not suitable for dogs with pancreatitis or that are overweight. Coconut oil contains medium chain triglycerides which can support skin health.

      Kind regards,
