Homemade Dog Treats

Biscuits

Like most girls, I’ve thought about what my wedding will be like….err maybe only once or twice (or three times). I think a farm wedding in the summer would be straight up dreamy;  with a barn, and tall grass, mason jars and fireflies–it’d be magic. It got me sort of thinking about how awesome it would be to have a petting zoo, too. A freakin’ petting zoo! How amazing would that be?!  Now, I usually have huge issues with petting zoos, because while I LOVE petting farm animals, I don’t really dig petting goats–they kinda suck.  I don’t get them. We don’t get each other.  And that’s usually all petting zoos consist of…that and random chickens that want nothing to do with you. Kinda boring.

So at my future wedding’s petting zoo, there will be animals I do wanna pet like dogs, cats, pigs, and miniature horses.  And I will pet them in between dances and knocking down champagne, and so will my guests.  It’ll be lovely.

And you know how you you’re supposed to give guests, like, a little gift bag or something? Well, I’d want to give the animals gifts too.  I’d probably give the pigs the leftovers from the reception, the miniature horses would get some sweet apples, I’d give the cats some private time…and the dogs, well, I’d make them these homemade treats.  I bet they’d really like them because I gave them a try and they’re not half bad. Sooo if your dog is peering over your shoulder as you’re reading this blog post, you can tell them this: these treats have a predominate peanut buttery taste, the texture is hearty and nourishing due to the rolled oats, and the finish has a lovely hint of coconut and chicken.  Yum!

{Chuck and my little brother, Daniel.  Chuck will be getting a care package this week and these will be included–he’s pumped about them.}

Homemade Dog Treats

Recipe tweaked from Shared Sugar

Print this recipe!

I added virgin coconut oil to the batter because it’s awesome for dogs and humans alike.  If you don’t have coconut oil on hand, and don’t want to run to the store, simply replace it with olive oil.

1/2 cup of peanut butter (I used the creamy kind)

1/4 cup honey

1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil (or olive oil)

1 cup chicken broth

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth. In a separate bowl, combine flours and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Place dough on flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about 1/4” inch thick. Use a small bone cookie cutter to cut out cookies. My cookie cutter was a 5-inch bone-shaped , but for small dogs you may want to use a small cookie cutter (around 2″). Roll out leftover scraps and cut out as many as possible. Put cut out cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.

    Well, now I’m at a crossroads. I can’t think of a better excuse for a little more bonding time with my doggy. But, she’s getting a little…”voluptuous” or “curvy” as we like to put it. Okay, okay, the bitch knows how to EAT and she’s downright FAT. But what can I say, I’m a sucker for her doggy ways and it’s a dog-eat-treat world. We’re going to throw on our chef hats and give these a try. Maybe throw on the Lifetime channel and eat away together. Great post. Wish I had thought of that petting zoo idea. I wouldve have like to have contained a few of my husband’s family members in there too…

    There’s something about You making these treats that just seems so perfect. For those of you who don’t know Adrianna, she’s quite the character when you get her around a dog. Her love for them makes this blog all too appropriate.

    Since I currently only have my kitty nosey, I might have to make them for my boyfriend’s dog. — Who knows — Would be a great Christmas Gift for people with doggies. Don’t have to worry that that gift box of Mixed Popcorn will go stale — A dog Treat is ALWAYS enjoyed! Thanks for the tip!!!

    I really like that you used coconut oil.

A suggestion… I only keep a couple handful of treats in a jar at a time and put the rest in a ziplock bag in the freezer so I don’t have to worry about spoilage due to the lack of preservatives. Just pull a couple handfuls out every week, so they are always fresh.

    My “little girls” first birthday was this weekend. We have a Golden named Maggie. My daughter and I decided to make treats for her to “celebrate”. This recipe looked great and got awesome doggie reviews. I cut the recipe in half (you mentioned 50) I figured-for now-lets try 25-less to throw away if I blew it!! They were so easy to make and roll. I rolled them a bit thin-will make them much thicker next time (yup-next time!) Now, for Maggie’s review…she loved them…though at first I did worry. She took the treat with a look in her eye of is this ok?? Even took her a minute to eat it (trust me-at 65 lbs. it should have taken just a few seconds!) I figured out her hesitation! We don’t give her food or treats from the kitchen counter (no trying to steal food or beg while I’m cooking!) I had cooled the treats there and couldn’t wait to give her one! She must have thought I was setting her up for trouble! Once she saw that it was ok she came back for more!!! Huge winner with Maggie! Thanks for sharing the recipe…

    I was wondering if you would be willing to sell a solo ad?

    If so how many subscribers would we be mailing to?

    Also do you know your open rate?

    And of course how much would you be asking?

    Thanks for your time,

    I was wondering what you could use to replace the wheat and chicken in this recipe. My dog is allergic to both but this recipe sounds awesome.

      Hi Corie,

      Yes, I actually have this recipe:

      Which is grain-free and doesn’t use any chicken broth.

      My dog is allergic to chicken, too. I usually just substitute organic vegetable broth when I see chicken broth in a recipe.

    Hi I have 2 dogs and they are losing there teeth . But they love soft treats is there any thing I can substitute the flour with so it will hold together but maybe make them a little more moist. Also can I leave out the chickean broth and add some thing else like mashed bananas. Please help me make my dogs happy. Thank you Susan Calise

      Hmm…I’m not quite sure. I haven’t tested this recipe in this way. You can feel free to substitute the chicken broth with water. You can also cut down on the baking time tremendously. I’d say bake them in half and remove them when they’re a teeny bit golden brown on the edges but still really soft on the inside. Let them cool completely and they should be a bit softer. Hope this helps!

      for my dog i put in a blender peanut butter oats strawberries and some cheese the blender then i transfer it to an ice cube tray and freeze it this might feel good on the gums!

    • Reply deb January 24, 2015 at 6:57 pm

      If you bake the whole batch on a cookie sheet and and then use a pizza cutter to cut them, and take them out when just done they will stay fairly soft. My 4 like them soft or crunchy so I do batches of both.

    Ha! Ha! I’m with you Vanessa (comment dated February 8th) My husband came home and said “Yum! The house smells good! Oooo cookies! Why are the cut into the shape of a Boxer?” Me ” They are Dog cookies, and I used our Boxer cookie cutter. Try one if you’d like”. He did, and liked them! My poor boxer girls Stella & Sophie just sat and stared at him with sad eyes. 🙁
    I did stay away from the whole wheat flour…they are just as tasty!

    Does anyone know how to make dog treat for dog with urinary crystals, that would be safe.Just spent 1600.00 on surgery for blockage

    • Reply Kathleen December 28, 2014 at 4:51 pm

      I started making my own dog treats when my shih tzu got a urinary tract infection. I use a turkey cranberry recipe (all organic ingredients) and a pumpkin peanut butter one as well. I, of course, changed her diet to a urinary care one (she didn’t care for the hills’ Science so my pet store did some investigating and found essentially the same ingredients in a Wellness brand). Really don’t want to go thru that infection again so I’ll do anything to keep her healthy.

      Molasses is fine for dogs. In fact, honey is bad for dogs in large quantities. I never use more than 1/4 cup or so for a full recipe of treats.

    These treats didn’t work for me as the dough was way too wet and no matter how much flour or oats I added it didn’t get anywhere near the consistency that I would be able to roll it out!! Very disappointed and waste of time and money to have even tried them!!!!

    You might want to tell your readers to avoid peanut butter that contains xylitol, as it can quickly kill a dog in very small amounts. You can check out my latest post about it if you are interested. Feel free to refer to it, I couldn’t tell you how much I would appreciate that!
