Conversation Hearts Homemade Dog Treat Recipe

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 60 minutes
  • Category: Special Occasion



  • 2 cups oat flour (pulse rolled oats in the food processor to make your own)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour or any flour your dog digests well.
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • Natural food coloring

For Decoration

  • Fido’s Icing for a smooth white royal icing effect
  • Food Pens to write your cute inscriptions

Making a big pile of treats? You can opt for food safe ink and some cute stamps for quicker decoration.


Preheat oven to 350º

Combine all ingredients and divide dough into 4 equal portions.

Add food coloring to each section to make your preferred colors.

Roll out each color and cut out your hearts. We made lots of tiny hearts for easy treating, and a few bigger treats to ice and decorate for show.

Place cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes or until just starting to brown on the bottom.

Cool completely before icing, writing, or stamping your designs.

When cookies are cool, you can follow the package directions on the Fido Icing, then allow to dry completely before writing your inscription. This will be 8 hours to overnight if your icing is thick. Life Hack: Pop them in your dehydrator with the fan blowing but no heat to help remove moisture.
