Happy National Dog Biscuit Day! On February 23rd make sure to celebrate your dog’s favorite day of the year with treats, treats, and more treats! And nothing says, “I love you!” like a homemade dog biscuit. While baking up your own requires a little more effort, it’s worth it: you get to choose fresh, healthy ingredients for your pup. Here’s a D-I-Y Sweet Potato Biscuit fit for your canine king or queen!
Directions: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, then combine 3/4 cups of sweet potato puree with one beaten egg. Slowly add in one and a quarter to a half cups of whole wheat flour (or use gluten-free if your dog has a wheat sensitivity) until the mixture is thick. Stir in the peas, then roll the dough into a quarter inch disc. Use a cookie cutter to cut on shapes—or you can just roll the dough into balls. Place the dough on parchment paper and bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Allow to cool thoroughly.
With these homemade dog biscuits, you can rest easy knowing you’re not treating with added fats or hidden salt. Bonus: it has sweet potato and peas which provide vitamins and fiber, as well as protein-packed eggs (if your dog is allergic or sensitive to any of these ingredients, we recommend checking out substitutions courtesy of Dog Treat Kitchen).
