Store bought dog treats are great but its super easy to bake dog treats at home. The benefits are bountiful; you know exactly what your feeding your pooch and you can adapt the recipe according to ingredients you have on hand in your kitchen. This is why The Beach Dog Daycare has come up with Easy Bake Dog Treat Recipes to share with you.

We start with a basic dog treat recipe and show you how to add foods to create unique dog treats your pet will love.  Also adding ingredients that your dog may need as nutritional supplements to help them with healthy issues is a breeze with these Easy Bake Dog Treat Recipes.

Basic Dog Treat Recipe

As a base recipe try this easy recipe. Start here with just four ingredients from your kitchen and you can’t go wrong. The Beach Dog created this recipe because it’s nutritious all by itself and can be easily modified for the perfect dough to form into cookie cutter shapes or just drop a spoonful onto a cookie tray. Simply add more milk if your batch is dry or add more flour if the dough is too moist.

Ingredients:

2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour (fair source of fiber)

1/2 Cup Quick Oats (excellent source of fiber)

2/3 Cup Skim Milk (Vitamin D and Calcium)

3 T Olive Oil (antioxidants and vitamin E)

Instructions:

Mix the dry ingredients first and then add in the milk and oil. Mix until dough is formable, spoon or roll and cut. Bake at 350 degrees. If rolled to 3/8″ baking time is 30 to 35 minutes…or until a golden brown.

Tip: Cooking time may vary for many reasons, keep an eye on the baking process and make sure the treats are cooked completely for a hard biscuit and to prolong the shelf life.

Sweet Potato Bones

Now that you have the basics lets try varying the recipe. Sweet Potato is loaded with the good stuff…vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber! So making Easy Bake Dog Treat Recipes with a simple veggie is a nutritious way to feed your dog snacks from home. Add any veggie you like to the mix and balance the texture of the dough with either flour or milk depending on what the dough may need after mixing in your veggies.

Ingredients:

2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour (fair source of fiber)

1/2 Cup Quick Oats (excellent source of fiber)

2/3 Cup Skim Milk (Vitamin D and Calcium)

3 T Olive Oil (antioxidants and vitamin E)

2 Cups of Cooked Sweet Potato

Instructions:

Mix the dry ingredients first and then add in the milk, oil, and sweet potato. Mix until dough is formable, roll and cut. Bake at 350 degrees. If rolled to 3/8″ baking time is 30 to 35 minutes…or until a golden brown. 

Peanut Butter & Oats Dog Treats

Most dogs love peanut butter; I know we play “hide the medicine in the peanut butter” at our house all the time. It works every time. So we can’t pass up the opportunity to create a peanut butter treat, its typically always in the cabinet and its sure to please your pooch.

Ingredients:

2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour (fair source of fiber)

1/2 Cup Quick Oats (excellent source of fiber)

2/3 Cup Skim Milk (Vitamin D and Calcium)

3 T Olive Oil (antioxidants and vitamin E)

1/2 cup of peanut butter (I used the creamy kind)

1/4 cup honey (can be good for allergies if you buy local)

1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil or olive oil (excellent for healthy skin)

Instructions:

Mix the dry ingredients first and then add in the milk, coconut oil, honey, and peanut butter. Mix until dough is formable, remember you can ad more flour if the dough is moist or add more milk if the dough is crumbling. Roll and cut. Bake at 350 degrees. If rolled to 3/8″ baking time is 30 to 35 minutes…or until a golden brown.

Fennel & Oats Dog Treats

This recipe is geared towards supplementing health issues. For example, we all battle bad doggie breath at some point, fennel is a liquorish flavored herb that works great in combating bad doggy breath, you can also use parsley.  Easy Bake Dog Treat Recipes can be made to correct or add nutrients that your dog may need.

Ingredients:

2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour (fair source of fiber)

1/2 Cup Quick Oats (excellent source of fiber)

2/3 Cup Skim Milk (Vitamin D and Calcium)

3 T Olive Oil (antioxidants and vitamin E)

¼ cup fennel or parsley

Instructions:

Mix the dry ingredients first and then add in the milk, and fennel. Mix until dough is formable, remember you can ad more flour if the dough is moist or add more milk if the dough is crumbling. Roll and cut. Bake at 350 degrees. If rolled to 3/8″ baking time is 30 to 35 minutes…or until a golden brown.

Lastly try making Jerky

Use any kind of left over meat and dry it out in a dehydrator or put them in the oven on a low setting, 170 degrees for 4-6 hours depending on how big your meat slices are. Make sure the meat is totally dried out, this might take longer than 4-6 hours but you will be able to tell just by looking.

We hope you enjoy these Easy Bake Dog Treat Recipes. It is really simple to do and don’t forget, make a big batch and freeze some so they are always available for your dog to enjoy.
