Advent Calendar for Dogs

Cayla Gallagher

Get your pup excited for Christmas with delicious cheese and peanut butter cookies!



  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • ½ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup organic peanut butter
  • 1/8 cup hot water
  • 24 pouches
  • markers or paint
  • mini clothespins
  • festive ribbon

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add the oats, cheese, peanut butter and water and mix well.
  2. Divide into 24 pieces and shape into cookies.
  3. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 325F for 15-18 minutes, until slightly hardened. Cool the cookies completely.
  4. Label 24 mini pouches 1 through 24 with some markers or paint. Place a cookie inside of each envelope, then attach the envelopes to a string and hang in your desired location. These cookies stay fresh for 3 days, so we recommend placing the cookies in a freezer bag, freezing them and defrosting 3 at a time at room temperature overnight. It KIND of kills the fun, but your pup will be getting wholesome, fresh treats each morning!
