If you’re like us, we love to give our dogs a treat.  But sometimes you really aren’t quite sure what ingredients may be in them.

While these homemade dog treats are created from wholesome ingredients so you’ll know exactly what you are feeding your pooch when you give them one.




These homemade dog biscuits aren’t oily or salty….(trust me I’ve tired them…ha ha). In fact there is only a quarter of a cup of oil in the recipe.

We love to give our dogs frozen veggies are something we pop into Bonnie and Tilly’s dinner.

They will eat them without leaving the peas behind. Popping veggies into a dough and creating a dog treat was something different for us but thought we’d give it a go.

Using the bone shaped cookie cutters made the process so much fun.


Ingredients You’ll Need To Make Veggie Dog Treats



  • Frozen Veggies – Mixed frozen veggies are used in this recipe and a combination of beans, carrots, broccoli and cauliflower.
  • Wholemeal Four – normal or organic
  • Wheatgerm – Wheat germ is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids if you can’t source wheatgerm in your supermarket try your health food or bulk wholefood store
  • Brewers Yeast – High in B vitamins and a good source of protein. Here’s a Great article about Brewers yeast for dogs that you might like to read here.
  • Rice flour – good alternative if sensitive to wheat products
  • Veggie stock cube – optional …..just to add a little flavour
  • Olive oil – good source of omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E
  • Water – add the water to the stock cube and steam the veggies


So What Vegetables Are Safe For Dogs To Eat?

This is a really important question.  I’ve often given our dogs veggies wondering how much or if they were actually dog friendly.  To save the confusion I went to the expert and veterinarian Dr Lisa Chimes and she has a quick article on the best vegetables for dogs and the ones to avoid.  

Why Can’t Dogs Eat Chocolate?

While we all love to give our dogs a treat I found this awesome article from Dr Chris Brown on What Happens To Dogs if They Eat Chocolate which I think is really helpful.

Can I Make Dog Treats Crunchy or Soft?

Yes you can.  Less amount of cooking time will make them softer while cooking a little longer will harden them up.
