My dog loves these treats! I lined up all of her treats, and she chose one of these! I added a few tablespoons of parsly and garlic powder. I also added some peanut butter. I recommend cooking a lot longer to make a texture similar to other dog treats. Thanks for the recipe! **UPDATE** I have found that the shelf life of these treats are about 2 weeks or less. But don't let that stop you from trying this great recipe!-30 May 2007
These are Awesome !!! I omitted the salt and added 2 bouillion cubes (1 Chicken, 1 Beef) and 2 tsps. of garlic juice for the summer, to keep the fleas etc off my dogs. They absolutely love these treats.-29 Apr 2007
Four paws up from my Ridgeback, who seems much more excited to get these treats than the ones from the store. I ended up with 100+ treats, making them about 1.5 inches around (along with some tiny Pomeranian bites too). I added peanut butter to the second half of the batch. Thanks for sharing this easy, no roll recipe!UPDATE: In case you're new at this, I wanted to remind people that these treats will get moldy since they have no preservatives. Keep a close eye out so your pooch doesn't get sick! My frozen treats have thawed out quite nicely.-28 Jul 2007
The best doggy biscuits recipe - Recipes
Healthy dog biscuit recipes for homemade dog treats give you a fun way to show your dog that you love her! Try these easy recipes, and see what you have been missing!
Have you ever wondered exactly what a dog biscuit is? I have. Knowing exactly what a dog biscuit was, became especially important when I started Natural Pet Bakery and began to create recipes for dog treats.
I simply needed to have a way to distinguish dog cookies from dog biscuits, so that customers could easily find the kind of treats that they wanted.
What I found is that, the definitions for biscuits are a bit fuzzy. For example, Webster’s Dictionary says that a canine biscuit is hard and contains ground bones and meat. Yuk!
And, as you probably already know, many people use "dog treats" and "dog biscuits" interchangeably.
A quick look at the history of biscuits for dogs can give you some more insight…

Easy Homemade Dog Biscuits
Before you retreat to the kitchen and fire up the stove, there are a few small things to consider. First, once you’ve decided to make your own dog biscuits, decide what flavors your dog most enjoys.
Then, maybe set a budget for dog biscuit ingredients. However, most homemade dog biscuits certainly won’t break the bank. DIY dog biscuits mostly call for flour, liquid and a flavor agent.
The last step is the most important: Remember to call your favorite four-legged taste tester into the kitchen with you and put her to work.
Our Tastiest Homemade Dog Treats

An instant favorite is our classic Homemade Dog Biscuits. Using only seven ingredients, this recipe makes a whopping five dozen, meaning you can fill your pup's cookie jar in one go. The dough consists of flour, wheat germ, brewer's yeast, salt, and canola oil and is baked in a 400-degree oven before getting brushed with low-sodium chicken stock. The final treats will have your dog's nose working overtime. We also go so far as to cut them into the shape of a bone, but circles, squares, or any other cutters you have on hand work for these homemade treats.
For a trendy option that they're sure to love, make Pupcakes. These cupcakes for your dog look so good, you might just want to steel a bite (and if you really want, you can! They're made with wholesome, human-friendly ingredients). The cake calls for peanut butter, bananas, flour, egg, and rolled oats among other cooking essentials, while the frosting is made from a combination of peanut butter and Greek yogurt. Another sweet option that they're sure to love is our Blueberry Dog Biscuits. As the name entails, they're made with frozen organic blueberries for a mouthwatering surprise. Nutritious components like quinoa flour and flax meal round out the homemade indulgence.
