Homemade Peanut Butter Cookies

Yesterday I decided to make some treats for Maya and use up some of the THK Verve (I got a 10 lb box but switched back to home prepared raw). I found a recipe on THK's website, and made a few adjustments.

  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup THK Verve
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (crunchy, unsalted, unsweetened)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp virgin coconut oil 
  • 2 tsp shredded mozzarella cheese

  • Mix everything together
  • Roll into small bits
  • Bake at 380°F for 20 minutes
  • Cool and store

Everything mixed together

In the oven


Ideally, I would use some other type of flour instead of wheat flour, but Maya never had any problems with wheat and it's only for treats, so I used whatever I had in hand. It ended up crunchier than I expected, so next time I might add some meat or canned fish. Maya waited patiently in the kitchen when I prepared the cookie. Cooking for Maya is always satisfying, because she gobbles up whatever I make!

  1. How cute! I've tried a couple different things with THK and baking. A few have worked, others... Well, the dogs still ate it so I guess those could be counted as successful?

    I'm better at making complete meals from scratch than treats. Even if I've got a recipe I often mess them up.

    1. Haha, that's why I bake for the dog but not for the humans. So far everything seems "successful". :)
