Healthy Dog Biscuit Recipe

Baked with love for my girls

Baking for my pups is becoming a Sunday night tradition. My pit bull has a sensitive stomach and suffers from food allergies, so I’m super careful about what I feed her. Store bought treats are packed with preservatives, animal by-products, and all sorts of junk you don’t really want your pet consuming. Pet food recalls have been all over the news recently, along with fatal treat outbreaks*. I want Prada to live a long and healthy life, if that means I have to spend an hour or two baking for her, I’m happy to do it!

Here’s a recipe I tried out this week for dog biscuits. This recipe sticks to the basics, and is perfect for sensitive dogs with food allergies. Call it your au natural Milk Bone. With only a few ingredients needed, this recipe is super easy and all natural for your pup to enjoy.

If you are baking for 1-2 doggies, this receipie is perfect. My pack consists of 4 pit bulls and one beagle, so I doubled the recipie.

Ingredients: 

• 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour
• 1 tsp. salt (optional)
• 1 1/2 eggs
• 1 tsp. Beef Bouillon granules
• ½ cup hot water

Optional Recipe Alternatives: 
• You can also use Chicken Bouillon if you so desire, or even use chicken stock in place of the Bouillon/hot water. If your dog doesn’t have a sensitive stomach, you can add in extras such as liver powder, wheat germ, shredded cheese or bacon bits. In my pumpkin/peanut butter treat recipie, I add fish oil. Fish oil is a natural cure for dogs allergies, read about it here

Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
2. Dissolve bouillon in hot water. If you chose to use the chicken or beef stock, disregard this step.
3. Add remaining ingredients in the bowl and knead the dough 2-3 minutes until mixed well.
4. Roll the dough into little balls and then flatten like a cookie. If you have a cookie cuter in the shape of a bone, even better. I choose the heart cookie cutters this time, because I love my girls <3.
5. Make sure you lightly grease your cookie sheet or use some extra flour, then place the dough on the sheet
6. Stick in the oven & cook for 45 minutes

Let the dog treats cool for at least 30 minutes before serving them to your dog. I keep my treats in the fridge, and they usually last 7-10 days. You can also keep dog treats in the freezer for 3-6 months if you want to make a large batch at one time.

* If you buy store bought treats or toys, please make sure you ALWAYS BUY FROM THE USA. The majority of fatalities from treats come from China. Better to be safe then sorry – Go American!!
