Beetroot dog biscuit recipe

Beetroot is a good source of vitamin C, fibre, folate, manganese, and potassium, and sold everywhere.  This biscuit recipe makes a nice hard crunchy dog treat using precooked beetroot I bought on sale in my local Co-op.  Add some oats, flour, a beaten egg, and just for fun some golden breadcrumbs and you have a purplish tasty dog treat.  I’m using these biscuit cutters if you are interested but any will do.


  • 3 cooked beetroots
  • 2 Eggs
  • 280g (10z) rolled oats
  • 140g (5oz) plain flour
  • 60g (2oz) golden breadcrumbs
  • 100ml (4 fl oz) of meat stock (low salt if using cubes)

How to store

As a general guide if meat protein is present in recipe then it will last around 3 to 5 days stored in a cool place.  If it has second class protein in it eg. cheese, lentils, eggs, etc, then they will store for about 10 days in a cool place. You can use cake tins lined with baking paper – greaseproof. If there is no meat or second class proteins present then it will last around 3 weeks before they go soft like human biscuits.
