TREATS FOR SENSITIVE DOGS

Our canine dietitian Bev Cobley has given us a new biscuit to try.  When I made this recipe the first time I took ALL the biscuits with me while I did my dog walking and the dogs just loved them!  By the end of the day I had none left!  Thumbs up from the dogs!

This gluten free dog treat recipe is dead easy to make and from start to finish it can be done within an hour with little mess and the great thing is you can add your dog’s favourite food to flavour it!  Just note that potato flour can be quite hard to source from your local supermarket but most health shops sell it and it’s easy to buy online.

INGREDIENTS

2 mugs of potato flour (240g), 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of honey, Water to mix,

Flavouring.  We’re using apple and cheese but you can use whatever your dog likes e.g. chopped liver, pre cooked mince, fruit etc.

METHOD

potato flour in bowl

Add 2 mugs of potato flour into a bowl.

    I tried substituting potato flour for coconut baking flour and this did not go well ? I just could not get it to make a dough. I used mackerel that I’d poached in water, puréed in a blender and added the poaching water. It just wouldn’t bind together enough and there is a huge bowl of mix.
    My dog has too many intolerances to list here but wondered if there are any tips you could give to allow me to use coconut flour in this recipe? I have made a fatal error somewhere?
    Many thanks

      Whats the dough like? Coconut flour is like a sponge and soaks up all the liquid. I’ve used it before and it’s sucks moisture out of everything.

        Thanks Jamie
        It’s still really crumbly, I wonder if the weight ( density) of coconut flour is a lot less it’s a huge bowl of flour 240g of coconut flour and it’s easily had 500mls water in there, I’ve added a bit extra honey and olive oil to see if that would help but not yet. if I ever manage to cook up this batch I’ll be feeding the total dog population I think ?

    hi, I know this is late after your post but I have just come across this recipe and you question about cornflour. I used to give my dogs corn four pasta and learned that dogs can digest cornflour as they do not have the enzyme. I stopped the cornflour and my 3dogs digestion including poos changed for the better over the next month. So I would say no to cornflour.

    Can you substitute Potato Flour for Cornflour? ASDA don’t do spud flour 🙁
    The sardine biccies were immense but the Liver cake did cause a problem. I gave a piece to our Westie and gave a few crumbs to the cat. When I gave the Westie a second piece the cat went ballistic and took a swipe at the dog!!
