DIY Dog Treats – Healthy, Inexpensive, Easy!

DIY Dog Treats – Healthy, Inexpensive, Easy!

Recently we went to Petco to buy more dog 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.

It was time to DIY dog treats for my Siberian Husky, Cannoli, who is very treat motivated.  After a bit of online browsing and experimenting I came up with this recipe for dog biscuits.  It’s very simple to make out of organic ingredients, and best of all Cannoli loves them.

You can make a batch of these treats and store in airtight containers for about a week.  To keep store in refrigerator, it will stay good for about 3-4 weeks.  Freeze in ziplock bags to keep up to 3 months.

DIY Dog Treats

Here’s my recipe for DIY Dog Biscuits, it makes 3 Dozen!

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Organic Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 Cup Flax Seed Meal

1  4oz. Jar Organic Strained Baby Food, any flavor as long as it doesn’t have onions or garlic

Water

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Measure the flour and flax seed meal to equal 1 cup.

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.  If it’s too dry add water a bit at a time until you have the right consistency.

Form into ball

Place ball of dough on lightly floured surface and roll to about 1/4″-1/2″ thickness

Cut into desired shape with a cookie cutter or use a pizza cutter to cut squares

Place on to parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 mins.

Remove from oven and cool. Store in airtight container.
