Recipes for Homemade Dog Treats

How to make the best dog treats for your pets. I have three homemade dog treat recipes to share with you that I make for my Yorkshire Terrier, Lexie. She loves homemade peanut butter and coconut oil treats the most. I firmly believe in healthy food for dogs.

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuit Recipe

This is a dog biscuit that you can cook to be soft or crunchy to suit your dog's taste. The biscuits stay fresh in the fridge for three weeks if stored in an airtight container. They are ideal for making in bulk because they also freeze very well for up to six months.

I use Whole Wheat Brown Flour in this recipe. You can substitute it for White all purpose flour depending on your own dogs dietary needs. The ingredients are for one large tray of dog treats. Once you have cooked these and know that your dog loves them you can double or treble the amount of ingredients to allow you to freeze some of them.
