Simple and Healthy Dog Treat Recipe

Doggie Treats7

Maxine and Sophie, our Great Dane and Westie, had their first taste of these healthy doggie treats during the Christmas holidays. They were a gift from their, now favorite, Aunt and Uncle.

The biscuits were such a hit that we decided to try our hand at making them. The recipe calls for only a few healthy ingredients, is easy to throw together (only requires one bowl-always my litmus test for easy), and cost pennies to make.

We used organic ingredients but this of course will increase the price a bit.  These treats smelled so good while they were baking.  I’m pretty sure you can add a pinch of salt and some sugar and enjoy them yourself (just saying)!
