Homemade Dog Biscuits


The main man in my life, my adopted dog, Wilko aka Willay, deserves his very own recipe! Wilko takes no commands and he chews all my shoes – even my passport once – but he gives the best cuddles. These biscuits won’t make your dog smell, if you get me. All you dog owners know what I’m talking about!

Serves 12

Cooks in 30 Minutes


  • 200g oat flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ chicken stock cube dissolved in 100ml hot water
  • 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 2 handfuls of peeled and grated sweet potato
  • 2 cooked bacon or turkey rashers, fat trimmed off and chopped into tiny pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Put the oat flour, beaten egg, stock and peanut butter in a medium-sized bowl and mix until combined into a sticky dough. Mix in the sweet potato and bacon pieces using a spoon or fork.
  3. Dust a cutting board with a little extra oat flour. Pinch off a piece of dough about the size of a golf ball, then use your hands to roll it into a cylinder about 5cm long and 2cm thick. Make two round ball shapes at one end (yep, it looks like a willy, I know!) but quickly make another two ball shapes at the other end, and there you have it – it should look like a bone.
  4. Place the biscuits on the lined tray and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, until firm and golden brown. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack, then store in an airtight container for up to three weeks.
