A great, crunchy all-natural treat for our furry four-legged friends. If you don't have spelt flour, you can use all whole wheat.

These were really easy to make and the dogs love them. Instead of using cookie cutters, I rolled the dough out on a floured cutting board that is slightly smaller than my baking sheets and then used a pizza cutter to cut the dough. It made it easy to invert the cutting board onto the cookie sheet and slightly separate each of the dough squares before baking. Read More

Wheat is bad for dogs use oat or almond flour instead. Wheat, corn and soy can cause skin problems. Read More

This makes about 1.5 pounds of dog biscuits. All 3 of my dogs loved them. I did not use spelt flour just whole wheat and ground flax seeds. Cut them into dog shapes truly adorable! Read More

My 3 pooches love these...of course they eat pretty much anything...but I like to think that homemade treats are special for them.:-) Didn't have any flax seed on hand so I substituted a bit of cornmeal. This does make A LOT of treats so either be prepared to share with doggie friends or cut the recipe half. Thanks!!:-) Read More

my dog loves these biscuits. His eyes get wider when he sees me with it in my hand and he is kinda picky when it comes to food/treats. They are easy to make and there's a lot of them. It is also cheaper than buying the ones from the pet store that are gourmet made. Read More

Be careful these make WAY more than it says if you use a small cookie cutter. I'm not positive if dogs like these or not because I gave these to 3 different dogs and they all kind of choked on them at first. Also they are VERY hard to bite into (I tried them myself). Maybe add more peanut butter and bake for less time. I had to break it into little pieces for my puppy. The only thing I changed was that I used wheat bran instead of flax seeds. The only one who liked them was me! Read More

My dog and another dog I was babysitting gave this recipe two paws up. I used whole wheat flour instead of spelt but left everything the same otherwise. One thing I really like about this recipe is that it doesn t contain milk or cheese which can be difficult for dogs to digest. Read More

Love this recipe and so do my dogs! But it makes a lot more than it says. I also bake a little bit longer because I roll them a little thicker. Read More
