A lot of dog treats are both unhealthy for your pooch and unnecessarily contribute to animal cruelty (by containing animal products). Thankfully, there’s an easy vegan dog biscuit recipe your dog will love AND it’s healthy for them! Pumpkin dog biscuits are a common homemade dog treat, but often they contain eggs or other animal products. We’ve put together a vegan version of pumpkin dog biscuits to create these delicious and nutritious vegan dog biscuits.
The flax is full of healthy omega-3s that are great for their coat. They’re wonderful as a daily snack, a training treat, or anything else! You can even eat them yourself (though, they don’t have sugar so they may not be to your liking – but add a drizzle of maple syrup and they’re truly not bad!).
So, without further ado, here are vegan dog biscuits your pup will devour!
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sweet rice flour
1/2 cup of sweet potato flour
2 tbsp potato flour
1 1/4 cups of oats
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 1/3 cup of pure pumpkin
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed mixed with 6 tablespoons water (to form 2 “flax eggs)
1/2 cup peanut butter (without sugar)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients in a mixer and mix until thick dough forms.
Press the dough into a thin sheet and cut out the desired shape of your biscuits (you can use cute dog bone cookie cutters or any that you like!).
Lay cookies onto lightly oiled baking sheets and bake at 350 for 12 minutes.
After 12 minutes, turn off the oven and allow dog biscuits to set for 3-4 hours until hard.
Store in an airtight container and let your pup enjoy!
