Natural DIY Dog Treats: Homemade, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Vegetarian Dog Biscuits

natural_diy_dog_treats_graphic

 

Finding natural, wholesome dog treats, that don't break the bank, is challenging. 
So many treats at the store contain ingredients I've never heard of, which is worrying. 
We made these gluten-free, grain-free, healthy, and natural dog biscuits that our pooches love!
I've used ingredients most of us have around, and you can easily substitute for things you do have. We've made these without the carrot, using sweet potato and zucchini instead, added pumpkin puree or banana instead of peanut butter, and used oats instead of almond flour. Feel free to mix the ingredients up to suit your dog's preference.
I also love that they don't need rolling out and cutting, saves the mess and the time. You can alter the size and shape to your dog's preference, the smaller they are, the quicker they'll bake. If your dog loves a crunchier treat, keep them in an extra 5 minutes.
Let us know if you give these a try, and send a picture of your beautiful doggies!

 

Disclaimer: These treats contain almond flour and peanut butter, both of which are high fat and can cause possible gastrointestinal issues for dogs. They are thought to be considered safe in small amounts and fed occasionally.
This recipe is designed as a treat for your dog and should not be fed in place of their regular food. Treats should only make up a maximum of 10% of your dogs' daily food intake.
The treat quantity and size can be altered to suit your dog.
Please contact your veterinarian with any questions and before introducing new foods to your dogs' diet.
