Easy Dog Treats

Posted by on 30 May 2011 in In The Kitchen | 9 comments

This weekend we attended a dog party. Yep, I said DOG PARTY. Naturally, I decided to whip up a batch of dog treats for the occasion (something inside of me dies a little when I arrive to a party without a homemade treat in-hand).

Many recipes I’ve seen for dog treats are complicated and full of specialty ingredients that I don’t care to keep in my kitchen (i.e. desiccated bone meal, liver and the like). This recipe is the easiest I’ve found and must be delicious because my dog stands at my ankles whimpering while I mix the ingredients.

Mix whole wheat flour and turkey baby food until smooth.

Add beef broth as needed if mixture is too dry.

With floured hands, roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Flatten balls with a fork, peanut butter cookie style, and add some sprinkles. OK, the recipe doesn’t call for sprinkles but I just can’t resist. They’re so much cuter with a little sparkle.

Bake about 20 minutes until tops are browned and cool on a wire rack.

Keep treats in a non-airtight container. If you wish, place cooled treats on one baking sheet and leave in the cooling oven overnight without opening the door. This will remove even more of the moisture and give them a longer shelf life.




1 ¾ cups whole wheat flour

two 4.5 ounce jars of turkey baby food

½ cup beef broth




Preheat Oven to 350 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Combine flour and baby food until they form a soft dough.

If mixture is too dry add beef broth ¼ cup at a time until reaching desired consistency.

Flour your hands and roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls on baking sheets and flatten with a fork. Add sprinkles if desired.

Bake about 20 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned.

Cool on wire racks and store in a non-airtight container.


Recipe from Tasty Treats for Demanding Dogs.






  1. I work at a food shelf and when we have expired baby food that we can no longer distribute, I make dog treats from it Similar to those above, but I use a box of rice cereal instead of flour and jarred sweet potatoes for extra moisture instead of broth.

  2. What’s up to every single one, it’s genuinely a nice for me to pay a
    visit this web page, it consists of priceless Information.

  3. I’m extremely pleased to uncover this web site. I wanted to thank you for ones
    time for this fantastic read!! I definitely enjoyed every bit of it and i also have you saved to fav
    to look at new stuff in your website.

  4. Superb website. Many strategies here. I’m delivering the item to a number of buddies ans also discussing throughout tasty. And lastly, on account of your effort!

  5. I take SERIOUS exception to this person putting sugar sprinkles on dog treats!


    Please do not feed your dog OR CAT sugar salt garlic grapes onions dairy products or chocolate. These are VERY harmful to your dog’s AND CAT’S health! And MANY pets are allergic to corn and wheat!

    You do not need to spice up your pet’s food to appeal to YOUR taste. YOU are not eating it! Your pet IS!

    Think about what dogs-cats would eat if they were still in the wild –
    they would eat MEAT! Like, dead animals! Not much else!

    Their digestive systems are VERY different than ours and think about the fact that MANY of US DO eat foods we should not eat!

    Please do not give your pets what YOU think are treats – they are not!

  6. How long can you keep these. After they are cooled and ready to eat can they be refrigerated. I made about four batches and wanted to know how to keep them. In a non covered container or in a covered container in the frig. Thanks, Judy

  7. How long will these dog treats last for?

  8. Your dog is one lucky dog!!!

  9. Glad you posted this, Jen! Neilie was all over those cookies, and they do look super easy to make. 🙂
