The Easter Bunny brings treat baskets full of goodies for kids, but what about the pups in your life? Dogs love getting treats as much as kids do! You can make these easy homemade treat recipes with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

Carrot and Cheese Dog Biscuits

Carrots are a good source of Vitamin A, which dogs need to maintain healthy skin, eyes, and teeth. Carrots are great for dogs, and are also an excellent source of fiber. Fiber gives your pet a feeling of fullness and helps prevent constipation. To make this treat, follow these steps:

Carrot and cheese dog biscuits


  • 1¾ cup wheat flour
  • ¼ cup grated cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • 1 tsp. wheat germ
  • ¼ cup grated carrots
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • 2 tsp. olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Grate the cheese and carrots
  3. Chop the parsley as fine as possible
  4. Add flour and wheat germ to large bowl
  5. Add grated cheese
  6. In a separate bowl, mix chicken broth and olive oil
  7. Add the wet ingredients to the dry to form a dough
  8. Roll dough to ¼-inch thickness
  9. Cut into desired shape and bake for approximately 20 minutes
  10. Cool and serve; store remainder in the refrigerator for up to one week

Blueberry Banana Surprise

Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and vitamin C, which help strengthen the immune system, protect against free radicals and prevent cancer. They're also safe for dogs, and they also contain phytonutrients known as anthocyanins, which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects.

Bananas are loaded with nutrients that are essential for your dog's overall health. Bananas are rich in potassium, magnesium and vitamins B6, C and D. These vitamins help keep your dog's skin healthy and aid in muscle development. The high levels of fiber in bananas can aid digestion and eliminate gas from the digestive tract.

If you're looking for a healthy treat that your dog will love, try combining these two fruits together using the following recipe:

  • 1⅓ cup wheat flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • ½ cup chopped blueberries
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened almond butter


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Chop blueberries and mash banana
  3. Place all dry ingredients into large bowl and mix
  4. Roll to ½-inch thickness and cut into desired shape
  5. Bake for 15 minutes
  6. Remove treats and allow to cool
Quick Tip

The oils in almond butter tend to separate. Before taking it out of the jar, stir it with a fork to mix the liquid and make it easier to work with.

Frozen Peanut Butter and Bone Broth Treats

The primary reason that peanut butter is one of the best treats for dogs is because it contains calcium and phosphorus. These two minerals are essential for healthy bone growth in dogs and help prevent osteoporosis and other bone diseases. Just be sure to use an all-natural peanut butter with no added sugar.

Bone broth is another great bone-building treat for dogs that contains protein along with gelatin, which helps strengthen bones because of its collagen content.

Peanut butter dog biscuit


  • 1 cup bone broth
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley

Xylitol, found in some brands of peanut butter, is toxic to dogs. Search for an organic brand that does not contain this ingredient, or any added sugar.


  1. Mix peanut butter and parsley in small bowl
  2. Grab an ice cube tray and fill each cube halfway with bone broth
  3. Place in freezer for two hours
  4. Remove from freezer
  5. Add the peanut butter and parsley mix
  6. Freeze for four hours
  7. Serve the treats

Egg-Shaped Chicken Treats

Chicken is very digestible and easy on the stomach. If your dog has a sensitive stomach or digestion problems, chicken may be a good option. Chicken is also an easy ingredient to add to homemade dog food recipes.

If you're looking for ways to sneak some extra nutrients into your pup's diet without adding extra calories or carbohydrates, chicken is a good way to go. These egg-shaped chicken treats are simple to make and require few ingredients.
