Scooby Snacks

Caleb found a recipe for Scooby Snacks in one of his books and wanted to make them.


I had to adjust the recipe a little bit for us to eliminate the walnuts but they were easy to make. We used cooking spray for our counter instead of using flour to roll it out so we didn’t dry the dough out. Caleb did all of the rolling and pressing the dog bone shape into the dough but I needed to put them onto the greased cookie sheet with a spatula.



They were a huge hit with our kiddos and I was pleasantly surprised by how good they tasted. They really look like dog bones -which I know is the point but still its a little hard to eat a dog bone 🙂


Scooby Snacks

2 c flour
1 c oatmeal
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c cocoa
1/2 c butter, softened
2 eggs
1/4 c milk
4 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp almond extract

Its important to preheat with this recipe so be sure to preheat oven to 350. Mix ingredients in mixer until combined. Spray a clean counter with cooking spray and roll dough out to 3/4 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutter shape. Carefully use a spatula to place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes.

  • Hi! Just wanted to let you know that we (my daughter and I ) made these today. Made some changes & thought I’d share them with you.
    Half batch:
    1/2 Cup Brown Rice Flour
    1/2 Cup Spelt Flour
    1/2 Cup Oat Flour
    1/4 Cup Maple Syrup Sugar
    1/4 Cup Natural Unsweetened Cocoa
    1 Egg
    2 TBSP. Water
    1 very small banana mashed (about 5inches)

    We shaped the dough with our hands into little T-Bone steak shapes (my daughter insisted that was how they should be shaped).

    Later my son called out from the kitchen: “Mom, these cookies ROCK! They’re so filling!” To which my daughter replied: “Well, you can’t have any more!”

    THANKS for the great template!

  • about how many scooby snacks did this recipe make? considering using this recipe for one of my son’s book reports he has to do. They had to tie in a recipe with the book and bring in the treats for the class.

    • I would say that it made about 20. Our bone cutter was pretty big and so the snacks broke pretty easily because ours were so long. I would definitely do a small bone cutter and I bet you would get 35 out of that.

    >He looks like he is having so much fun! My kids love helping me in the kitchen especially my daughter! Thanks for sharing this at What's In The Gunny Sack last week and I hope to see you again tomorrow!

  • >Those are cute! 🙂 That's great that you are getting your son to be comfortable in the kitchen. His wife will thank you. 😉

    >How cute! And what a great helper! I have to tell you – when my son was about Caleb's age he didn't help at all in the kitchen and was an incredibly picky eater (my youngest). Whatever I made, he'd want something else. Now, umpteen years later, he's a Cordon Bleu trained chef. Ha! All those years he drove me nuts, and he was a chef-in-the-making!

    Dropping by from Tatertots & Jello. Have a great weekend!
