After taking 3 weeks off from baking, I was itching to get back in the kitchen. With Vito’s weight gain in mind, I had new motivation to create some high calorie treats that would help him pack on the pounds. This was a little bit of a challenge because it's changing the way I bake…

You see, most of the ingredients I use are ones that I keep on hand. So first things first, I did some research to find foods that help underweight dogs put on weight healthfully. One of the foods I found happens to be one that I am allergic to - CHEESE! However, just because I’m allergic doesn’t mean I can’t bake with it ;)

A little fun fact about me...I have a dairy allergy, as well as a gluten allergy.

Cheese is a great snack for your pups and is one that should be given in small quantities. Since cheese is high in fat it can lead to weight gain - which is great for Vito - but to all our stable weight puppy friends, please enjoy these treats in moderation.



1 cup shredded mild cheddar and monterey jack cheese

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

1 3/4 cup oat flour

Optional add in ingredient, BACON!

Your eyes aren't deceiving you. Yes, there's tiny bits of bacon in the photos. I had a few pieces left over from Sunday’s touchdown bacon treats so I added them for a little extra calorie boost!


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together egg and milk.

4. Add cheese and flour. Mix everything together and form the dough into a ball or two separate balls.

7. Roll dough out to about 1/4” thick, then use cookie cutters to cut the dough into shapes.

7. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until edges are golden brown (mine took about 25 minutes).

8. Allow treats to cool completely before serving to your pup.

High Paws and Keep it Cheesy,

Me, my doods and I

I have a quick question. Can you leave the treats out in a bag or do you have to keep them in the fridge?
