If you want to add variety to your dog’s diet, try homemade treats. They can be healthier and cheaper than store-bought products.
In this article, I’ll introduce you to recipes for homemade dog biscuit recipes that you can make easily and quickly. I’ll also tell you what equipment you can use for making dog biscuits.
Recipes for dog biscuits
All recipes are intended for preparation in the oven or microwave. You need to make the dough from the listed ingredients, then roll it out and bake the biscuits using the molds. Don’t forget to grease the molds or use parchment paper.
- For these easy peanut butter cookies, you’ll need 2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of peanut butter, and 2 eggs. Mix everything together and then add water until it’s moist enough to roll out as dough.
- Mix 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup grated carrots, 1 egg, and 0.5 cup applesauce. Bake the dough in the molds for 30-40 minutes.
- Mix 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup skim milk and one tablespoon baking powder. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
- For these sweet treats, mix 1 egg, 3 quarter cups unsalted almond butter, 1 third of a banana, and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Bake for 10 minutes.
- If your dog likes pumpkins and carrots, then this recipe is for you. Mix three-fourths cup canned pumpkin, one egg, one-fourth cup shredded carrots, and one cup whole wheat flour. Then bake for 30 minutes.
You can substitute white flour for whole wheat flour or oatmeal in the recipes.

If you don’t want to go through the trouble or, like me, aren’t a fan of baking, I recommend buying a ready-made biscuit mix, like the Cooper’s Treats Baked Biscuit Starter Kit. This mix is made from dried and ground meat. All you have to do is add water and knead the batter.
If you're looking for good dog food, I recommend Chippin food. It is made from natural products and the recipes are developed under the guidance of veterinarians. Check out their menu.
Dog biscuit making utensils
To make dog biscuits at home, you need special molds and fixtures. Here are some ideas for you.
Silicone Dog Treat Molds – Paw and Bone
The set includes 2 molds – one for 20 paw shaped biscuits, and the other for 24 paw shaped biscuits. These molds can be used in the oven, microwave and frozen. So you can make a wide variety of treats. An added bonus of this set is the recipe booklet.
Pancake pan set
With this pan, you can make these cute pancakes in the shape of a dog’s paw. They’re pretty big, so they’re suitable for dogs of all sizes. The set even includes a pancake mix.
Dash Dog Treat Maker
Since many people are looking for this particular treat maker, I’ll mention it too. At first moment, I thought it was a good idea: pour the dough, close the lid and take out the ready treats in a minute. But when I looked at the reviews, I realized that it’s not that simple.
First, most recipes make the batter thick rather than liquid, so you have to press it into the molds. That’s messy and you can get burned. Second, the biscuits need to be flipped over, which I don’t think is practical. It would be difficult to make nice cookies.
But on the other hand, the Dash Treat Maker has many positive reviews. So a lot of people like this thing, you just have to get used to it.

I think it’s imperative to make your dog homemade treats like biscuits and cookies from time to time. It’s healthy, beneficial, and adds variety to your pet’s routine.
