Dog with Treat

The Pawsitively Organic Mystery series chronicles the new life of
Stan Connor, a corporate media maven turned gourmet pet food chef
and amateur sleuth. Stan left city life behind in favour of a
small-town full of new friends, a new love, and a whole lot of dead

Murder, She Meowed
, Stan is planning her wedding to pub owner
Jake McGee—a process complicated by her mother and sister, who
insist on trying to make the event what they think a wedding should
be, despite what Stan wants. When Stan’s bachelorette party goes
terribly awry, she has to figure out who killed her
farm-delivery-guy-turned-stripper before the whole wedding is
completely upended.

These coconut-carob cookie treats are perfect for a casual
wedding with lots of doggie guests. Who doesn’t love cookies? Well,
if you’re a dog, anyway…



1 cup oat flour

½ cup old-fashioned oats

½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2/3 cup water

¼ cup carob chips



Combine all ingredients except for carob chips.

Using a cookie scoop, drop batter onto a lightly greased cookie
sheet. Bake for 25 minutes at 350°F.

While cookies are baking, slowly melt carob chips. This can be
done in the microwave, heating carob in 10- to 20- second
intervals, or on the stovetop, using a double boiler on a low heat.
Carob can be thinned out with a drop or two of vegetable oil to
help bring to desired consistency.

Once cookies are done and have cooled, drizzle melted carob over
the top. This can simply be

done with a spoon and a light hand—no pastry bag

Allow a few minutes for carob to harden and then feed to
drooling doggies!

Note: Cookies can be dehydrated prior to topping with carob for
a longer lasting shelf life.

Makes approximately 18 cookies.
