These nutritious Healthy dog treats are simple to create and contain beneficial components for your dog. These treats assist in freshening your dog’s breath, promoting skin and coat health, and providing fiber and minerals.  Best of all, they are popular among dogs!!

I adore creating homemade Healthy dog treats since store-bought treats may be pricey and include dubious chemicals and preservatives. Homemade dog treats are simple to prepare, and the dog loves them. In fact, the healthy dog treats recipes shared throughout the years have gone viral and are among the most popular on the internet! It’s time to applaud Dogs on her food critic abilities.  a pretty finicky dog who dislikes most store-bought goodies (isn’t homemade always better)? Our pets deserve the best!

I’ve already provided recipes for Homemade Sweet Potato Dog Chews, Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Dog Treats, and Easy Homemade Dog Treats (which just include banana, peanut butter, and oats). This time, I wanted to provide a new snack dish using natural components that are really good for our dogs. Even though these snacks are loaded with healthful components, dogs go crazy for them! even my dog attempted to sneak one while I was taking food photographs.



Ground flaxseed promotes skin and coat health, immune system support, and healthy digestion. If you have whole flaxseeds, ground them with a blender or coffee grinder.

Unsweetened applesauce contains vitamins A, C, K, calcium, and phosphorus. Antioxidants may help prevent cancer, treat joint disease symptoms, and enhance dental health and breath. Make careful you use unsweetened applesauce. Alternatively, you might use cooked mashed sweet potato or unsweetened pumpkin puree instead of applesauce.

Natural peanut butter: A tiny quantity of peanut butter is used to flavor these goodies, but it also provides protein, healthy fats, vitamins B, E, and niacin. Make sure you use natural peanut butter. The only component should be peanuts. Do not use processed peanut butter with additional oils, sweeteners, or salt. That product is practically icing, which is harmful for our dogs.

Dried parsley is high in vitamins and minerals, and it also contains antibacterial characteristics that help keep your breath fresh!

Cinnamon: in modest doses, cinnamon is safe and nutritious for dogs. It promotes brain function, improves attention and memory, and has anti-inflammatory qualities. If you choose, omit this.

Whole wheat flour is high in fiber and protein, as well as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants such as folate, selenium, copper, iron, manganese, and vitamin E. You might replace this with oat flour or another dog-safe flour.

How to Make This Healthy Dog Treats Recipe:

Preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Line a big baking sheet with parchment paper or let it dry (the goodies should not cling).

In a small dish or measuring glass, combine the warm water and flax. Set aside for 10 minutes to thicken.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the thickened flax mixture, applesauce, peanut butter, parsley, and cinnamon. Mix in the whole wheat flour until you have a firm, dry dough.

Transfer the dough and any excess flour and pieces from the bowl to a clean work surface. Gather the dough and knead to include all of the flour. If your dough does not come together or is too dry, sprinkle in 1 teaspoon of water at a time until it forms a firm dough.

Roll out the dough to ½ inch (1.3 cm) thickness with a rolling pin. Cut the dough into dog biscuits. I used a bone-shaped cookie cutter to cut the goodies, but you could use any cookie cutter or just cut them into squares with a knife or pizza cutter. Gather any dough scraps and reroll to make additional snacks.

Allow to cool before feeding it to your puppy. I prefer to let my goodies cool on the baking sheet and then leave them out in the air overnight to dry more and get more crispy. Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to two weeks, or freeze. I hope your dog enjoys this nutritious dog treat recipe!
