Three Easy And Healthy Dog Biscuit Recipes

Our selected dog biscuit recipes are all quick and easy to make at home, under your dog’s watchful – and eager – eyes.

Dog Biscuit Recipe #1 – Two ingredients only

The perfect recipe for beginners, you only need to combine two ingredients!

This recipe makes around 20 medium sized-treats at roughly 25 calories per treat. For a larger batch, just double up the ingredients.

  • Preparation time: 10 min
  • Oven temperature: 175°C
  • Baking time: 20-25 min

Ingredients

  • 1 cup or 150 g of wholemeal flour (can also be substituted with bran/wheat germ or rolled oats)
  • 1 jar or 125 g of baby food – This recipe was tested with carrot flavour, which is a favourite vegetable of Cody’s

Tip: Bear in mind that certain ingredients – including garlic, onions, chives, avocado, peppers, grapes, raisins, corn, macadamia nuts, chocolate and artificial sweeteners such as xylitol – are harmful to dogs and need to be avoided. Most baby foods, however, do not contain any of these ingredients.

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 175°C.
  • Cover your baking sheet in baking parchment.
  • Place both ingredients together in a bowl and combine until a stiff dough is formed. Add a splash of water or a dash of extra flour, if necessary.
  • Lightly flour a surface and roll out the dough until it is roughly 6 mm thick.
  • Use a cookie or pizza cutter to cut your treats into the desired shape.
  • Place the treats approximately 13 mm apart on your lined baking sheet.
  • Bake the treats for between 20-25 min.
  • Remove the treats from your oven and let them cool off completely.
  • When cooled, store in an airtight container (which will make them go soft, but they’ll still be edible), paper bag or freeze them.

Dog Biscuit Recipes #2 – Peanut Butter Treats

Show us a dog that doesn’t love peanut butter, because we’ve yet to meet one. These delicious dog treats only require six ingredients and look amazing when shaped with a star cookie cutter.

This recipe will make around 24 medium-sized dog treats at approximately 40 calories per treat.

  • Preparation time: 15 min
  • Oven temperature: 175°C
  • Baking time: 4-45 min

Ingredients

  • 1 peeled and mashed banana
  • 2/3 cup or 60 g of rolled oats
  • 1 cup or 155 g of oat flour
  • 3 tbsp. of peanut butter – When opting for sugar-free peanut butter, be sure to check that it contains no artificial sweeteners, such as xylitol, as this is extremely harmful to dogs
  • 1/2 cup or 8 g of dried parsley
  • 1 beaten egg

Tip: Swap out the dried parsley with half a cup (or 65 g) of grated carrot if you desire a different colour.

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 175°C.
  • Cover your baking sheet in baking parchment.
  • Use a fork to mash the banana in a big bowl.
  • Add all the remaining ingredients – beaten egg, dried parsley, peanut butter, oat flour and rolled oats – and mix until everything is thoroughly combined.
  • Roll the dough into a ball and let it rest for 5 min.
  • Proceed to lightly flour a surface and roll out the dough until it’s approximately 6 mm thick.
  • Use a cookie or pizza cutter to cut the dough into your desired shape – Alternatively, roll the dough into little walnut-sized balls.
  • Place the treats approximately 13 mm apart on your lined baking sheet.
  • If you opted for walnut-sized balls, gently flatten them with the heel of your hand until they form 1.5-2 cm circles in diameter.
  • Bake the treats for 40-45 min.
  • Remove the treats from the oven and allow them to cool completely before storing away.

Dog Biscuit Recipes #3 – Diabetic Dog Treats

If your dog is suffering from diabetes, you already know the importance of a good diet in managing the condition. Feeding your pup the same amount of food, the same time every day will help reduce any fluctuations in their blood glucose levels.

Be sure to check in with your vet before making any changes to your dog’s diet if they are diabetic. Diabetes can make it a challenge to find your dog an appropriate treat, as many ingredients will be unsuitable.

One great snack for diabetic dogs is crunchy carrot slices. This easy-to-prepare recipe is much more special, plus non-diabetic dogs also love them! These treats were identified as the firm favourite by our qualified treat tester, Cody.

When combining the ingredients, we used a handheld mixer. This recipe makes approximately 50 small-sized treats at around 18 calories each.

  • Preparation time: 10-15 min
  • Oven temperature: 175°C
  • Baking time: 15 min

Ingredients

  • 1 cup or 155 g of wholemeal flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 250 g of baby food – This recipe was tested using chicken, potato and broccoli (some of Cody’s favourite vegetables)

Tip: When preparing treats for diabetic dogs, you should avoid ingredients or products containing ingredients such as molasses, syrup, fructose, maltose and dextrose.

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 175°C.
  • Cover your baking sheet in baking parchment.
  • Combine all the ingredients together in a big bowl.
  • Pour the mixture onto your lined baking sheet and proceed to spread it out evenly.
  • Bake this slab for 15 min.
  • Remove the slab from the oven and allow it to cool off a little before turning it over onto a cutting board; proceed to cut the slab into strips.
