Get the kids baking and make these special treats for your family’s furry friends. Save it for Christmas, or just spoil them for the sake of it. These recipes are quick, easy and our pets love it. The recipes do not contain pet food, so it is perfectly fine if your toddler “taste it” while making.
Please Note – This recipe contains Peanut Butter, the peanut butter can be substituted with mashed cooked pumpkin.
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup raw oats
- 1/4 cup cornstarch (maizena)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter or mashed, cooked pumpkin
- 1 tablespoon oil
Preheat oven to 180C / 350 F. Combine water, oil, egg and peanut butter. Mix properly using an electric mixer. Combine dry ingredients.
Thoroughly mix dry and wet ingredients to form a soft dough. Roll dough out on a floured surface to a thickness of about 3mm. Use any cookie cutter to cut into shapes.
Lightly grease a baking tray or line with wax paper. Because the recipe does not contain a rising agent, you can pack the biscuits close to each other. Bake for 10 minutes, turn over and bake another 10 minutes.
Let the biscuits cool properly before packing them into a container.
- 1 tin salmon or tuna (10 oz, or 280g)
- 1 tablespoon catnip
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 egg
- 1 cup oats
Preheat your oven to 180C / 350F.
Place the oats in a food processor, add the rest of the ingredients. Mix properly until a soft dough is formed. Roll the dough out on a floured surface to a thickness of about 3mm. Use a small cookie cutter to cut shapes. Place biscuits on a baking tray lined with wax paper.
Bake 20 minutes. Let the biscuits cool down thoroughly before storing in an airtight container.
To store our dog treats, we simply covered an empty tin with brightly coloured paper and printed a label.
Remember to bake extra to give as gifts to a friend or family member who loves their furry pets!
