Gourmet Dog Biscuits




Every once in a while I like to take a little extra time and make 
my dogs homemade dog biscuits.  They go absolutely bonkers 
over these soft meaty treats!  Chip our chocolate lab couldn't 
wait till I got through taking pictures! She devoured two 
immediately after this shot.The key ingredient in the bones is 
the meat flavored baby food. Beech-Nut makes a Beef and Beef 
broth one I like to use but you can use any savory flavor you like.  





I have to tell you that my son Tanner came in and said they 
smelled so good that he ate one!  He had another just now.  He 
is my kid that will eat anything though.  He used to eat the ones 
at Petsmart when he was little.  Personally, I think he just likes to 
freak me out!  These doggy treats are all natural though and are 
safe for anyone.........even silly 17 year old guys.




Gourmet Dog Biscuits

(printable copy)


2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 egg, beaten
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
2 jars strained meat flavored baby food 



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl combine all ingredients together and make a 
thick dough.

Knead on a lightly floured counter top for about 4 minutes our 
until dough is nice and smooth.

Sprinkle a little more flour over the dough to make it easy to roll.

Roll out the dough to about a 1/2" thickness and cut with dog 
bone shaped cookie cutter.

Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for about 22 minutes.

Let dog biscuits cool at least a half hour before serving.




This is our new Papillon puppy Bindi.  The bone was almost as big as she is but she 
loved them too!




Our other dog Kimchee (a Cairn terrier...like Toto) was 
at the groomers but don't worry.......we saved her some!


Why don't you make your favorite companion some homemade treats 
today....it's really easy and fun!

  6. Hubs and I are both having a good laugh at your little guy eating the doggy bones. We could so see our Little Bit doing the same. Your new puppy is ADORABLE! I have made our mutts homemade bones before and they love them. That was all pre-Little Bit though. Now if I have time to bake it's for me not the mutts ;D

  7. these look like they'd be fun to make! we don't have dogs & i'm sure i'll sound crazy for this, but we like to make goodies for the raccoons that come up on our deck at night. they're so cute to watch & if i feed them yummy home-made dog biscuits, they keep coming back to entertain me.

  9. I'd love to try these for our pit bull mix sometime. My son tries to eat dog and cat food too, so I'm sure he'd eat these if given the chance.

  11. I make my own dog food and would love to try making some treats one of these days. I especially like this recipe because you noted they were somewhat soft? I love the name Chip for a Chocolate Lab. We had a Cairn Terrier once, same color as yours and her name was Thistle. I can't believe how adorable that little Papillon is.

  12. Oh Duke would love these! Your pups are beautiful, but that Bindi . . . babies are always adorable, even if they are four-legged! Have a great day!

  30. I was out of town during the wednesday blog hop, so I am barely catching up :) I am so excited to be at your sight. This is exactly the kind of site that I love.

    You could give Nigella (did I spell her name right?) anyway, you could give the latest cooking greats a run for their money!

  39. This would be a fun thing to do with my grandsoms. They'd love to make bones for Zander, their Mastiff. Thanks for the recipe. I had a chuckle reading about your son eating them. But when I checked the ingredients it all sounded edible.
