If you’re looking for dog biscuit recipes, these 5 special treats won’t disappoint!
Remember that time I shared my favorite homemade dog treat recipe with you, and left your dogs drooling all over the place for a few days? Well, I’m back with some more dog biscuit recipes. You may want to hide the computer from your dogs now, because if you don’t, they’ll be begging you to get in the kitchen with them.
Banana Oatmeal Biscuits
If you’re looking to make a big batch of dog biscuits, this recipe won’t disappoint. In fact, you probably already have most of these ingredients at home, so these should be easy to prepare. Why don’t you print this out or bring your tablet into the kitchen and start cooking while I’m explaining?
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup of flour
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup milk
The first step to cooking these dog biscuits is preheating the oven to 325 degrees F, and greasing your baking pan. Next, you’ll want to combine all of your ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. The easiest way to do this is to start with all of the wet ingredients, and then include one dry ingredient at a time. Spread the mix in your greased pan and bake for approximately 25 minutes. You can cut the biscuits into squares if you’d like, but you’ll want to wait until everything is cool.
Cheesy Apple Biscuits
Are you loving my dog biscuit recipes so far? It’s not over yet! Dogs love cheese. Dogs love treats. Why not make a treat for your dog with cheese? These biscuits are super, because not only do they have cheese in them, they have applesauce. I love applesauce, and I bet your four-legged friend will, too!
¾ cup of whole wheat flour
½ cup of grated cheddar cheese
4 tablespoons of applesauce
To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine ingredients. If you notice the dough becoming too dry, it would be fine to add a couple of tablespoons of water to soften it. This step may or may not be necessary. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough until it’s flat. The desired thickness is really up to you. Just keep in mind to not overcook if you keep them thick, or the biscuits will be quite hard. Bake for 15 minutes, and then allow the treats to cool completely before eating, packaging, or freezing them.
Sweet Potato Strips
I love dehydrated sweet potatoes. They are so yummy. If you’re looking for a sweet potato dog snack that’s a little different, try this dog biscuit recipe. In fact, it would be quick to whip this up anytime you make your own dinner that includes sweet potatoes.
1 cooked sweet potato
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
Scoop out the flesh of a cooked sweet potato into a large bowl and begin to mash it. Once you’ve gotten the potato mushed, incorporate all of the other ingredients to form a dough-like material. Roll out the mixture on a lightly floured surface. If you don’t flour your working area, I will guarantee that you get gobs of the ingredients sticking to your table, and mostly likely your dog will jump up and try to clean it with his tongue. This type of behavior is usually not condoned in a fancy kitchen. Anyway, after you’ve rolled out your dough, make long strips with a knife. Transfer these pieces to a cooking sheet and bake for approximately 40 minutes in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F. Before serving to your pup, allow the biscuits to cool on a wire rack.
Pumpkin Spice Puppy Cookies
Regardless of the season, pumpkin is always one of my favorite flavors. Plus, it’s very healthy for dogs (and humans). I love any type of dog treat, but give me something with pumpkin in it, and I just go wild. I’ll bet your dog is the same.
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1/2 cups of canned pumpkin
4 tbsp of honey
4 tbsp of water
2 tbsp of vegetable oil
1 tsp of cinnamon
¼ tsp of baking soda
¼ tsp of baking powder
Did you already guess that I’m going to tell you to preheat your oven? Well, you’re correct! Turn that heat machine to 350 degrees F, and let it warm up. Begin by mixing your pumpkin, honey, oil, and water in a large bowl. Slowly add your dry ingredients and mix until the dough comes together and softens. Instead of cutting these treats into fun shapes or strips, use your hands to roll them into balls. Once all balls are rolled, place them onto a lightly greased cooking sheet. You can either cook them as balls (note: they will flatten a bit) or you can flatten them yourself with a fork. Baking time will only take about 25 minutes, but don’t forget to let these yummies cool off before serving.
Peanut Butter and Banana Puppy Ice Cream
So, I know I promised five dog biscuit recipes, but my final selection wouldn’t by any means be considered a biscuit. It would, however, be considered one of the yummiest treats you could share with your pup! This special treat will take no time to prepare. All you need to do is mix, freeze, and enjoy! Oh, and paws off, humans. Yes, this treat may be yummy to your taste buds, but these are puppy treats only.
¼ cup peanut butter
½ cup plain yogurt
1 ripe banana
Combine ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Fill mix into trays or small bowls. One option is to use an ice cube tray. That way, you can pop one treat out at a time without wasting anything. Freeze the ice cream until it’s solid. Depending on how you froze the puppy ice cream, you can either serve immediately in a bowl, or pop out a single serving onto a dish for your dog. Enjoy!
