Homemade Dog Biscuits

You are 6 (healthy) ingredients away from the best dog biscuits your fur-baby will ever taste (trust me, I’ve tasted them)

We have a 5 year old Bernese Mountain dog named Lacey (aka. Lacey-Mae, Lacey-Moo, Miss Lacey, Angel Face, Princess Pea, Moo-Moos, Baby Girl and Barkasaurus Rex).  She’s actually MY dog, that I generously share with the family sometimes and she is spoiled.

So much so, that she now has a discerning palate and snubs her nose to certain dog biscuits.

I was trying to think up small, inexpensive gifts for friends and neighbours and thought perhaps a treat for their babies might be a bit different, but appreciated.

I surfed about a half dozen recipes for homemade dog cookies online and came up with a combination that Pavlov himself would have drooled over.

Homemade dog biscuits

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana (the riper the better)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 cup peanut butter (please make sure that your peanut butter of choice does NOT have Xylitol in it as it is poisonous to dogs)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Mix first four ingredients together until smooth, then mix in oats and flour until everything is thoroughly incorporated.

Roll out to 1/4″ thick and cut with a pizza wheel or cookie cutter.  Place on a cookie sheet (you don’t need to space them very far apart – they don’t spread)

Bake for 20 minutes or until dog biscuits are hard.

These homemade dog biscuits smell SO good that I couldn’t help but have a tiny taste of the dough – I know, I’m weird – but save for the fact that they aren’t as sweet as human cookies, they were really good.

I packaged up the homemade dog biscuits in little cellophane bags and Miss Lacey and I delivered them to her neighbourhood friends.

I waited a few days to post this recipe/article to make sure that the cookies were a hit with gobblers and finicky eaters alike and that there was no residual “tummy aches” that people had to clean up either in the house or the yard – there really is no reason why there should have been any problems, but I like to make sure before I share things.

I wanted to get a cute photo of Lacey eating her cookies, but she loves them so much that she gobbles them immediately – it was all I could do to get these blurry shots as she was quickly grabbing them. lol
