National Dog Biscuit Day 2017 is tomorrow and while I’m sure you’ve already marked your calendar, your friends here at Paw Spa wanted to remind you and share a few of our favorite recipes for homemade dog biscuits.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes.

Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Biscuits

  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten, for brushing
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Stir together the egg, peanut butter, banana, and honey in a medium bowl; blend thoroughly. Stir in the flour and wheat germ; mix well. Turn dough out onto a floured board and roll to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes with a cookie cutter, place on prepared baking sheet, and brush tops with egg white.
  3. Bake biscuits in preheated oven until dried and golden brown, about 30 minutes, depending on size. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Oatmeal Dog Cookies

  • 2 cups +1/2 half cup rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup unsalted, low-fat beef broth or chicken broth
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Add 2 cups oats, salt, beef broth, and egg to a large mixing bowl. Combine well. Add remaining ½ cup of rolled oat and combine.
  3. Pour onto wax paper and knead dough for about 3 minutes. Let stand for about 3 minutes to begin to become firmer. Press to ½-inch thickness.
  4. Cut with cutter and place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  6. Store in an airtight container for use or store in a Ziptop bag in the freezer for later thawing and use.
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 pounds beef liver, cut into pieces
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 10×15 inch jellyroll pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place the liver into a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. If you have room, add the flour and eggs, and process until smooth. Otherwise, transfer to a bowl, and stir in the flour and eggs using a wooden spoon. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the center is firm. Cool, and cut into squares using a pizza cutter. The treats will have a consistency similar to a sponge. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

Bacon Flavored Dog Biscuits

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons bacon fat, melted
  • 5 cups whole wheat flour
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
  2. Beat eggs in a large bowl. Stir in milk, water, salt, and bacon fat until well blended. Gradually stir in flour to make a stiff dough. Pinch off pieces of the dough and roll into 2 inch balls. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool on racks. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
