This is Izzy. She’s my little sweetheart. I put off getting a dog for so long, and now I can’t imagine life without her. None of us can. My whole family is smitten with her. Enough about Izzy, clearly this post is just a poor attempt to post pictures of her. 🙂

However I do like to make her healthy, wholesome treats. These easy dog biscuits were made just from baby food and they were so easy. I figured if baby food was good enough for a baby, it was good enough for my Iz.

Dog Biscuit Recipe Disclaimer 

 I am not an animal expert. Please check with your vet to see if what you are using is safe for your dog. Here is an article about what people foods are good for your dog. These foods are toxic and should never be given to your dog: chocolate, onions, grapes, raisins, yeast dough, artificial sweeteners, macadamia nuts, avocadoes, alcohol, or coffee. 


Dog Biscuit Ingredients I Used

One of the reasons I used baby food was because we had some leftover oatmeal cereal like this from when my granddaughter visited last. I thought oatmeal cereal would essentially act as oat flour and by adding some chicken, sweet potatoes and carrot baby food, you almost have a complete meal!



Essentially all you do is mix the jar food with the oatmeal and make a stick dough. Then you roll it out on a silicone mat by taking a greased piece of wax paper and placing it on top of the dough. Then using a rolling pin, roll on top of the wax paper so the dough doesn’t stick to the rolling pin.

You want to roll it to about ¼ inch thick. Then use cookie cutters to make the biscuits. I got these from Amazon and love them!

Dog Biscuit Recipe In A Nutshell
  • Mix jar baby food and baby oatmeal to make a sticky dough.
  • Roll it out on a piece of parchment paper or silicone mat. You will need a piece of grease wax paper to place on top before rolling.
  • Using a rolling pin over the wax paper to roll the dough about ¼ inch thick.
  • Use cookie cutters to make biscuits.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or desired chewiness or crunchiness.



Bake them on another silicone mat (you can use parchment paper too) until they are nice and brown. I didn’t make mine too crunchy. You can always cook them longer to make them crunchier. Sometimes I turn off the oven and keep them in there as the oven cools down and they continue to bake. Just make sure to watch them so they don’t burn.



I tried to get some good pics of Izzy eating them but it was hard to hold the camera and the biscuit at the same time. So I cut off her head when she was licking her lips but she really likes them.

Unfortunately, I’m writing this post much later than when I made them, and now they are all gone. Time to make another batch. I store them in the refrigerator and they last a long time. 



I hope you like this little dog biscuit recipe for man’s best friend. It was fun making them for my little, sweet puppy. I hope your pup likes them as much as Izzy did.

And if you would like some more dog treats I have a few for your reading pleasure.

We have a brood of dogs in our house to go with the brood of boys: a cranky old pug, Bentley, and two German Shepherds, Kira and Major.

With all those dogs, the amount of dog food and treats we’d go through is hard to imagine.

And even buying in bulk, it would get expensive.

Plus, who even knows what is in some of the store bought treats?

You hear stories all the time about brands getting recalled or having less than great ingredients in them.

With these easy homemade dog treats, you don’t have to worry about that!

Plus the dogs love them!

Even old, cranky Bentley responds to them.

If he hears the paper bag that we store these treats in rustling, he immediately runs over and puts his begging face on.

It’s all “Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme before I lose my ish.


You only need 2 easy to find ingredients for these.

To make them, you’ll need:

  • Baby food– You can use homemade baby food or store bought. Just make sure the kind you use is pureed and only has dog safe ingredients and no onions.
  • Flour– Go for whole wheat flour for some extra health benefits.

How to Make

Making these is so easy!

To do it, start by preheating the oven to 350.

Then mix the flour and puree together to form a stiff dough.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough with a rolling pin to about a 1/4 inch thick.

Use cookie cutters like these adorable ones to cut into desired shapes or a pizza cutter to make cubes or sticks.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat and place the treats about 1/2 inch apart.

Bake the treats for 20 – 25 minutes.

Then, remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely before storing in a paper bag.

You could also store them in an air tight container but they will be softer.

Ingredients to Avoid for Dogs

According to the ASPCA website, you shouldn’t ever feed your dog the following:

  • alcohol
  • avocado 
  • chocolate
  • caffeine
  • citrus fruit
  • coconut or coconut oil
  • grapes and raisins
  • nuts
  • milk and dairy
  • onions, garlic and chives
  • raw or undercooked meat, eggs or bones
  • salt or salty snack foods
  • xylitol
  • yeast dough

What kind of baby food should I use?

Now that you know what to avoid, you can feel confident choosing from a variety of baby food flavors. 

Our dogs love:

  • apple
  • pumpkin
  • quinoa
  • spinach
  • blueberry
  • squash
  • sweet potato
  • beef
  • chicken

Don’t have baby food or not interested in buying any?

These treats bake up just as well using 1 cup of homemade vegetable puree as well.

Tips and Tricks

  • Make sure you read the baby food’s label to make sure there are no harmful ingredients like onion or garlic powder in the mix.
  • Feel free to get creative and add mix ins like grated carrot, peanut butter or fresh parsley.
  • If the dough is too sticky, add a little extra flour until it’s easy to work with. And if it’s too stiff you could add a little water to loosen it up.

  • 2 4 oz jars pureed baby food beef, blueberry, sweet potato, chicken – any flavor/s - Just make sure there are no onions/onion powder in it*
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

US Customary - Metric

  • Preheat the oven to 350.

  • Mix the flour and puree together to form a stiff dough. Add extra flour or water as needed.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to about a 1/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut into desired shape or a pizza cutter to make cubes or ‘sticks’.

  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat and place the treats about 1/2 inch apart. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes.

  • Allow to cool completely before storing in a paper bag (storing in an air-tight container will make them soft, but they’re still edible).

Easy, right? Now this is where you can get creative. Consider including grated carrots or sweet potatoes, maybe a little bit of parsley (which supposedly helps with bad breath), some fresh fruit, or (for an added treat) some peanut butter! Got any other ideas? I’d love to hear them!

*Onions are toxic to dogs! If you’re unsure about what you can/cannot include, check out this list of toxic foods from the ASPCA. Techinically, not everything listed is toxic, but each one provides an explanation of why you may want to avoid it.
