DIY Cheap & Healthy Doggie Treats

It’s time for some DIY doggie treats!
Our Siberian Huskie puppy loves treats.  She expects treats whenever she listens to a command to sit, stay, and shake.  We go thru a lot of treats!
Recently we went to Petco to buy more treats, we usually buy the bulk biscuits from the treat bar. The price had gone up to over $6 a pound.  The pre-packaged ones were more expensive, even those on sale.  The “organic” treats were in my opinion ridiculously priced, over $10 for a 6 oz. bag.
I found a recipe online for easy baked dog treats, I tweaked it to suit our needs, adding flax seed meal which is said to be healthy for dogs and good for their skin and coats.
Here is the recipe I ended up with Cannoli loves them!  It uses just 3 ingredients and can be made in different flavors, I used sweet potato and apple/blueberry, her favorites!
Ingredients:
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup flax seed meal
4 oz.  jar of strained baby food (any flavor works as long as it doesn’t have garlic and onions)
Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
1.  Measure the flour and flax seed meal to equal 1 cup.

 

2.  Mix dry ingredients with one 4 oz. jar of baby food in a mixing bowl.  Knead until you have a ball of dough.  If it’s too loose add flour a little bit at a time until you have the right consistency.

3.  Place ball of dough on lightly floured surface and roll to about 1/4″-1/2″ thickness
4.  Cut into desired shape with a cookie cutter or use a pizza cutter to cut squares
5.  Place on to parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake for 20-25 mins.

 

6.  Remove from oven and cool.  Store in airtight container.
