2 1/2 cups flour (some can be WW)
2 tablespoons peanut butter (I use unsweetened)
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 banana
1/4 cup oats
1 egg, optional
vanilla to taste
cinnamon to taste
chopped fresh or dried parsley, optional

Combine wet ingredients, mash up the banana, mix up the egg.

Add wet to dry. If the dough feels too dry or wet, add wet or dry to compensate.

Roll out thin, cut with a bone shaped cookie cutter.

Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes. I tend to lower the temp and bake them a bit longer to make sure they're crisp.

Makes a ton so freeze them as they'll mold after several days.

Very simple recipe I used for my first time making dog treats. Thing I like about it is, one it's very easy to make, and two you can add things to it to switch things up a bit. My foster dog is absolutely in love with these, lol.

Ingredients:


1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Combine oil, peanut butter and water. Add flour, one cup at a time, forming a dough. Knead dough into firm ball and roll to 1/4 inch thickness.

Use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes, or simply cut into squares/rectangles. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes. Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies.

I know a few pretty yummy dog treat recipes. I am the founder and owner of my own dog bakery and every recipe I have is a dog's favorite.
The most simple recipe that I have, but don't use for my own treats, is to just use the flour of your choice (I use either whole wheat or rye) and add whatever you want the treat to taste like, like peanut butter for example, and water. Make sure it makes a dough that isn't sticky by slowly adding water. Also, the only downside to this recipe is that the treats will have a few air pockets, creating bubbles in the treats.

If you'd like, you can check out my Etsy shop amd see what I have to offer as well. I offer wheat free options and almost always have some sort of coupon active.

Anyone have some good dog biscuit recipes? :)
Some dog treat recipes (not given here but on the internet) call for garlic but it is part of the Allium family (same as onions, chives, and leeks). These are TOXIC to dogs and cause hemolytic anemia (the bursting of red blood cells circulating through the body).

Also when using peanut butter make sure to check for the HIGHLY TOXIC sugar substitute Xylitol ( has also been called "Natural sweetener" and "sugar alcohol").

Thanks @TruckersMom

I have a list hanging in my kitchen of foods that are toxic to dogs... with pictures so the kids know :)
I have no idea why garlic is used in treats and why the sugar substitute isn't pointed out to be aware of when a recipe calls of peanut butter.

A nice simple recipe I use is

some non-grain flour like the garbanzo bean flour
egg
canned salmon

Toss the salmon and egg in a food processor to puree everything then add flour until a ball forms. Press out onto cookie sheet lined with parchment or a Sil-Pat and cook at 325 till edges get brown and middle bounces back to touch. Let cool a little and cut while still a bit warm with a pizza cutter. So easy and you can add and swap different ingredients with no problem (tuna or peanut butter for the salmon, different non-grain flours or grain flours if your dog is good with grain-inclusive).

I just coat dry kibble lightly in meat drippings or bacon grease and freeze it. I try to stir it every once and awhile so it doesn't get hardened into a big blob. It is a great low cost and high value treat. I don'take it in the summer though because it gets too gross to handle !
