Good Enough to Eat…Dog Treats

Daisy's Favorite Homemade Dog Treats

Daisy's Favorite Homemade Dog Treats

The pet industry is big business.  New products are introduced to the market every year.  Recently I have noticed a growing trend in “Organic” or “Natural” pet foods and treats.  Let me also add these products cost a pretty penny.  I guess the saying goes you get what you pay for. 

Take a moment and read the label on your pets current food or treats, many words I’m not even sure I can pronounce.  I want to know what I’m putting in my body…shouldn’t I know what goes into my pets body?  I started researching homemade dog biscuit recipes and meshed a few ideas together, and this is what I came up with… 

Daisy’s Homemade Dog Biscuits 

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons chicken or beef bullion
  • ¾ cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 stalk celery (chopped fine)
  • 1 small carrot grated
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (white flour can be used)
  • Dash of pepper


1.) Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease cookie sheets.

2.) Combined oats, butter, and water, and bullion, let set 10 minutes.

3.) Add cornmeal, honey, milk, cheese, egg, celery, carrot, garlic, and pepper. 

4.) Stir in 1 cup of flour at a time, mix well to form a stiff dough. Knead dough on a floured surface about 3 minutes and then roll out to ½ inch thickness. 

5.) Cut out biscuits with cookie cutters, and place on cookie sheet ½ inch apart. 

6.) Bake 35-45 minutes until crisp and golden brown. Depending on the size of your cookie cutter is how many biscuits you’ll get.  Store loosely covered for up to 2 weeks.

    Can you subsitute the cornmeal. Corn is not good for dogs.

    Most treat recipes I have seen use cornmeal or white flour. I would imagine you can use whole wheat flour or some sort of organic flour substitue in place of the corn meal. I will be doing some research myself, thanks for the question.

    Before I comment on your post, I have to say your dog, Daisy is CUTE! Thumbs Up!

    Now, I do think that the dog biscuits looks good but it’s a little too thin. Have you tried making thicker ones? I’m currently looking for ingredients to bake a dog cake which hopefully, I’ll be able to share it on my dog cake recipes blog. Any ideas?

    I’m not sure if you know this but garlic is poison for dogs! You should alter the recipe, as it might end up killing one of your readers pets!
