Don’t let dust collect on your cookie sheets just because the holidays are over. Why not whip up some edible TLC, dog-treat style? Here is the perfect recipe to cure your favorite couch companion’s winter blues.

Vegan Carrot, Date, and Oatmeal Treats
1 1/2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
1/2 cup instant unsweetened oatmeal
2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup finely chopped or grated raw carrots
2 Tbsp. pitted and finely chopped dates
1/2 cup natural unsalted peanut butter
1/2 cup filtered water

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, oatmeal, and baking powder. Make a well in the center.
  • Place the carrots and dates in a separate bowl with the peanut butter and water.
  • Add the peanut butter mix to the well in the flour mix and stir until combined.
  • Flatten the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is approximately 1/4-inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut the treats.
  • Arrange on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 14 to16 minutes, or until dry.
  • Let cool for 30 minutes before serving.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
