Homemade dog treats

We love making homemade dog treats in the kitchen – and it certainly feels like we’ve embraced home baking rather a lot this year! For Christmas we thought it would be nice to make some homemade gifts for our dogs, and we were delighted when our nutritionists suggested this festive dog treat recipe…homemade cheesy cracker dog treats. It’s a super easy dog treat to make at home and can be made with store cupboard essentials!

Why not make your four-legged friend our deliciously cheesy cracker dog treats this Christmas?

Packed full of deliciousness, they are a fun and festive dog treat for your furry friend, as well as being 100% wheat free.

Homemade dog treats….

Into the mixing bowl you will need:

113g cheddar cheese (grated & low salt variety if you can)

3 tbsps. olive oil

3 tbsps. apple sauce

100g blueberries

226g oat flour

Milk to bind



Preheat your oven to 190°C.

Combine all the ingredients together, until a sticky ball is formed.

Cover and chill for 1 hour.

Roll out your biscuit dough and use a biscuit cutter to cut out shapes (we chose little dog bones!).

Bake in the oven for 15minutes or until golden brown.

Once cool, let you furry friend enjoy!


*Always supervise your dog when eating, and ensure your four-legged friend has access to plenty of fresh, clean water. This homemade dog treat recipe is  intended as an occasional treat only. A complementary pet food for dogs.

If baking is not your idea of fun, don’t worry – we have our own Laughing Dog Cheesy Bites, which are also naturally oven-baked and formulated free from wheat and wheat gluten. Head to our dog treats range to find out more.
