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!

  • 1 crushed garlic clove (Isn’t garlic bad for dogs?)
  • 60g (1/3 cup) of wholemeal flour

  1. Hello Jamie – I have just made your Sardine Oakcakes and Tyson our West Highland Terrier who has loads of allergies so can only be fed on our food consisting of salmon, rice, and veg – followed me around whilst cooking and was even crying for them – so gone down well thank you.

    • Hey Karen, thanks for letting me know, I’m glad Tyson likes them. Yeah, the westies are really prone to allergies, I know 4 and they all suffer from it.

  2. Just a quick query – how long will the biscuits keep in an airtight box or in a bag? Thanks

    • I make 1/2 a batch and in an airtight container they last weeks unless the dogs get at the container (which has happened) in which case they last seconds

  3. garlic is bad for dogs, i just looked it up.

    • Use garlic powder that’s fine but not fresh garlic

  4. Hi can you tell me if the oatcakes and also the liver biscuits are ok for dogs with epilepsy.
    Thank you

  5. I made the liver cake to start with. Charlie loved it and so do all his friends. Sardine biscuit’s are also a good training treat and so easy to make. My husband has tried all the treats I have made for Charlie. He now has a lovely shiny coat. I regularly make these treats and made little doggy bags for Charlie’s 1st birthday. His friends want him to have birthdays every week.

    • Hi Carol! yeah these sardine oatcakes are my fav treat of all and they are easy and that does matter. Glad your dog and his friends like them!
