Sardine oatcakes

Sardine oatcakes

Better than any dog biscuit you’ve ever bought… ever!

Your dog will love these oatcakes, they are tasty, healthy, smell great and just so easy to make!  And from preparation to cooking time they take less than one hour!

When I was thinking of a new recipe to make I first thought about making some kinda flapjack then found that oatcakes were even easier to make and the perfect treat recipe to use fish!  I’ve taken these out with me several times when I’ve been dog walking and they are great for getting the attention of all my dogs and even dogs that I’m not walking!



  • 2 tins of sardines in oil (2x120g)
  • 1 crushed garlic clove (Isn’t garlic bad for dogs?)
  • 60g (1/3 cup) of wholemeal flour
  • 300g (1 1/3 cups) of oats
  • A splash of water

  1. Made a batch of these today for my cocker pup as the vet advised some extra bran. Really easy to make and Cotto loves them…thanks for the great recipe

    • Thanks Evelyn. This is my fave recipe!

  2. I made these for Milo our Springer Spaniel and he LOVES them! I omitted the garlic as spaniels have super sensitive stomachs, and used an apple corer to cut the biscuits instead of a cookie cutter – was a bit time consuming but the end result paid off.

    I highly recommend this recipe, costing only 95p per batch (which is massive) you won’t find a more cost effective way to treat your dog with the peace of mind of knowing exactly what’s in it!

    • HI Kait!

      Thanks for the comment! I walk a ‘Milo’ but he is a Golden Retriever!
