coconut oil dog treats


If you’ve read any of my other posts about homemade dog treats, you know how much I LOVE coconut oil for dogs! It provides many benefits for their skin, coat, hips, and joints. I use it in all of my baked treats. Many people mix some right in with their dogs’ food. If you’re looking for a simple, beneficial treat for your pups, look no further!

There’s just one ingredient: coconut oil. And, you can make as many or as few as you want! Simply melt the coconut oil, pour it into molds, and freeze them until solid. Once they set, pop them out of the molds, and store them in an airtight container or freezer bag in the freezer.


I like to fill a spouted, glass Pyrex measuring cup with the coconut oil and microwave it. I use the one cup size and fill it to the top. It takes about two minutes in the microwave to melt to liquid. Then I pour the oil into the molds (I got these on Amazon). *TIP: Place the molds on cookie sheets before filling them, or you’ll have a heck of a time moving them when they’re full of liquid! Set the cookie sheets in the freezer, and allow the treats to set. I get about 48 small treats out of this much coconut oil.
