Not really something I bake, but I bought a dehydrator a couple of years ago and use it to dehydrate bits of meat into jerky treats. It's super simple - just put the meat in and go - and I can use all sorts of freezer burned meat or just the stuff I don't want to eat (tongue, heart, liver) and the dogs LOVE it.

I dehydrate raw boneless meats and organs as treats. One ingredient, less chance for digestive issues.

I sometimes use a simple recommendation I found on this site...chunk up an organic turkey or chicken hot dog and nuke till it is like a piece of jerky.

I make my treats with a can of salmon (or tuna or any meats, even a can of dog food) one egg and one cup of flour. Mix it all together, flatten out on a cookie sheet on parchment paper. Cook at 350 for about 20 minutes. When it is cool you can slice into small pieces. It stays together and does not crumble at all. I make big batches and freeze some of it until I need to use it.

500g of chicken livers,
2 cups of maize meal
2 cups flour
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of oil

Mix together, it forms a kind of sticky goooey, dough. Bake it in a pre heated oven 160C for about 20 mins. I just flatten the mess in a baking tray, a rusk pan actually and bake. The dogs, and the cats love it. Even Cosmic who doesn't eat raw chicken livers, gobbles it up.

I make my own treats and one recipe I particularly like

1 1/2 cups of Goat's Milk
2 tsp of Coconut Oil
1 tsp of Honey
2 cups of Rice Flour.
Then 1 cup of Peanut Butter

You can change the quantities, but I make biscuits in bulk for four dogs so I tend to use more of the ingredients then I typically would use for just two of my dogs.

You can replace the goat's milk with water, but I feel as though the milk causes the treats to be softer and easier to break - so it works great for my training. I also used coconut oil to help with coat and digestion, and work in unison with raw honey. I use 1 tablespoon typically but sometimes too much honey is not good. But they both are extremely healthy. Rice flour I find is a good alternative for flour and grain/wheat sensitive dogs. Then I use peanut butter for flavor.

I make treats using a recipe very similar to that of kyllobernese. For the 1 c. of flour, I tend to sub in rice flour or garbanzo bean flour beacuse wheat can sometimes be an allergy issue. Along with the salmon, I also add some pumpkin puree. Whiz the protein smooth in a food processor, add everything else, blend again into a ball, press on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 20-25 min.

If your dog happens to be more into peanut butter than salmon, swap those, or swap peanut butter for the pumpkin, etc. It's a pretty versatile recipe as long as you have an egg for binder and enough flour to have it all come together in a dough.
