I love these dog biscuits! They are so easy to make because they only need a few ingredients and just require 20 min in the oven – easy peasy!

The only thing I would say is make sure to buy good quality coconut oil and natural peanut butter. You don’t want any of the stuff which is full of Xylitol, a sweetener used in many foods including peanut butter. I buy Whole Earth Peanut Butter and The Groovy Food Coconut Oil; I think spending a bit more for proper quality food for my dog is worth it. Everyone wants their pets to live long healthy lives and I think the connection between food and longevity is huge. Anyways, enough chat, let’s talk recipe!

Home Made Dog Treat – 5 Ingredients and Only 20 Minutes Baking Time

dog food recipe

You will get approximately 18-20 biscuits from the quantities in this ingredient list, add or remove to suit:

– 3 carrots, pealed and grated

–  1 tbsp peanut butter (check there is no Xylitol in it)

– 1 tbsp coconut oil

– 150 grams oats

– 2 eggs (I like to use my own hens eggs = ++ natural)

 

  1. Heat the oven to 180C and line a baking tray with baking parchment. I actually had to use two medium sized ones and I still ran out of space …
  2. Put the oats and carrots in the food processor and blend until you get a fine mixture
  3. Add the eggs, coconut oil and peanut butter and blitz again until smooth. To be honest I don’t mind a few larger carrot pieces, and it’s fair to say the dogs don’t either!
  4. Put the mixture in a bowl and leave in the fridge to chill for half an hour
  5. Scoop little portions onto your baking tray and flatten down slightly with the back of your spoon
  6. Bake for 20 minutes
  7. Leave to cool and then store in an air tight container

I would say these biscuits will last a week but who am I kidding! Your dogs will go crazy for them.

Enjoy! 🙂 It’s really great to know where your treats are coming from.
