Homemade dog biscuits are as easy to make as cut-out cookies. For that matter, you’ll want to taste these, too, and you may find yourself finishing one.
The prepared dough from the following four ingredients is rolled out and cookie-cut into adorable shapes. In place of a cookie cutter (honestly, your dog doesn’t care about the shape of its treats) a simple rolled ball two inches in diameter and flattened by pressing with your hand, or a circular biscuit made from an overturned glass, will also do the trick.
Once you make these fresh biscuits, you may never go back to store-bought treats, which are often laden with salt, preservatives, and artificial flavorings. Each of the recipe’s ingredients is not only dog-approved, but easy to find.
Most homemade dog biscuit recipes call for whole wheat flour, but almond flour has more nutrients and is better for dogs’ digestive tracts, especially for older pets. Pumpkin, rich in vitamins C and A (beta-carotene), and E, is low-calorie, nutritious, and keeps coats shining.
Peanut butter, something all dog-lovers know that pups go bonkers for, is a healthy fat rich in protein, magnesium, and folic acid. If your home is peanut-butter-free, substitute almond butter, which has calcium for bones and teeth. If your dog has gastric issues, don’t substitute almond butter, but opt for the same amount of applesauce instead.
After baking, and cooling, treats keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for for one month.
