You love your puppy like family, right? So, why would you feed him or her those junky cheap treats from the store?

Would you feed them to your kids? Could you eat them?

Probably not, but you could eat these easy 2 ingredient homemade dog treats…if you wanted to!

They might not taste the greatest, but with only baby food and oat flour as ingredients, they’re just as edible as your favorite cookie.

And you can make them in any flavor your dog likes! Just head to the baby food aisle at the grocery store and pick out his favorites.

Our Reason for Making The Best Homemade Dog Treats

Most of you know that we adopted 2 rescue puppies in August 2015.

They are they sweetest little puppy girls, but holy cow, do they like to eat!

Because they are rescues, we are sort of unsure of their full breeding. The only idea we currently have is that their mother was a Shepherd…of some sort.

This makes it very difficult to choose the right foods and to know how much food to feed them.

I mean a Chihuahua eats way less than a St. Bernard, right?

But regardless of what their breeding is, they love these dog treats! In fact, they try to go outside, just so they can have one when they come back inside.

When they come back inside, they run straight to the cabinet where I keep their yummy dog biscuits.

Pretty smart puppies!

  2. How can these be sold if they only keep 7 days? Can they be frozen and if so for how long? Once thawed how long will they keep in the fridge?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Lou-Ann,

      You would sell these just as you would homemade baked goods. I’ve never tried freezing them, but if you try let me know – I’d love to know if they keep! Thanks for reading!

    2. Careful if selling! If a dog gets sick, pet parents can claim your treats are to blame, I suggest you bake these just for your pup only!
