Vegan dog biscuit/treat recipes

Found this in a dog cookie cookbook my inlaws bought me for christmas. Not sure there's an area for doggie recipies in the recipe area..so here ya go!

1 c finely crushed dried bread crumbs
1 c unbleached whole wheat flour
1 c bulgar wheat
1/4 c soy milk
1 1/2 tsp brewers yeast
1 cup vegetable stock

1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly grease or use parchment paper to line 2 cookie sheets or baking trays

2.in large bowl using fork or wire whisk blend the bread crumbs, flour, wheat, soy milk and yeast.

3. using a fork make an indentation in the center of the dry mix and add 1 cup of stock.

4. using a large spoon, spatula or your hands blend together until the mixture pulls away from the sides of the bowl and forms a soft dough. If the mixture seems dry, add a little stock one tbsp at a time.

5. turn the dough onto a lightly floured flat surface, and using a rolling pin roll out 1/4 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out as many cookies as you can, reworking the scraps as you go. The dough will become stiff as it's reworked.

6. place cookies side by side on cookie sheets. bake for 20-25 mins or until the cookeis appear very dry and the edges are a light golden brown. remove trays from oven and cool to room temperature. turn off oven.

7. when cookies have cooled completely, put all of them on a single baking tray and return to the cooling oven. Leave undisturbed without opening oven door for 8 to 16 hours (this dries them out and allows for long term storage)

makes approx 98 cookies.

Thanks! I'm always looking for new biscuit recipes for the pup.

I tried to do a taste test with him, but he happily eats them all!  ;D

2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups soy milk at room temp
1 tbs molasses
1 1/2 c creamy peanut butter

2 . In large bowl using wire whisk combine the flour, oats  and baking powder

3. In a medium bowl use wire whisk or electric mixer on medium speed, beat the milk, molasses and peanutbutter until smooth. stir in broth.

4. using a large spoon, spatula or your hands combine the two mixes, blending until mixture pulls away from the sides of the bowl and forms a soft dough. If the mixture seems dry add more broth 1 tablespoonful at a time.

5. Turn dough onto lightly floured flat surface and using a rolling pin roll out to 1/4 in thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out as many cookies as you can reworking scraps as you go.

6. Place cookes side by side on cookie sheets and bake for 20-25 mins or until the cookies appear very dry and th edges are a light golden brown. remove trays from oven and cool to room temp. Turn off oven.

7. when cookies have cooled completely, pile them on a single cookie sheet and return to the cooling oven. leave them undisturbed without opening oven for 8 to 16 hours.

I just made these and my crew is going nuts over them.  This seriously makes like close to 200 cookies..

Aww tell him to enjoy!! My dogs LOVE the peanut butter ones and it made so many I'm stocked up for a good while!

I am trying to find a basic recipe for vegan dog biscuits, and it seems impossible! All the recipes I am finding include dry milk powder. If anyone has a basic recipe for some vegan dog biscuits, please tell me!

(note: title was edited by bp to be sentence case)

You could probably replace the dry milk powder with something like soy, I think they make that in a powdered form?

Oh, and your thread title isn't supposed to be all caps, against rules. (found this out from personal experience ;))

this is dinkfeet's creation... it sounded so good i wished i had a dog:

1 cup cheerios (or cornflakes if your dog's allergic to wheat)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350.

Spray non-stick spray onto a baking sheet.

Put the oats in a blender/food processor and give it a whirl for 10-15 seconds. Add the cheerios and do the same so it's all crumbly. Mix the crumble mixture in a bowl with the pumpkin and peanut butter until it's sticky but not goopy.

Dump the mix onto a piece of wax paper and put a second piece of wax paper on top - now squish flat! Roll if you like. Peel off the top piece of wax paper and plop the large, flat mixture onto the baking sheet. Use a pizza cutter to cut it into a bunch of inch-square pieces and then spread them out a bit so they're not touching.

Bake for 15 min, cool, then feed to your four-legged friend to show her/him you care!

dinks recipe sounds good...
i actually made the pumpkin ribbon cake into muffins one day, and had a bunch leftover, so before they went bad, i cut them up into crouton type pieces and baked until crispy. the dogs LOOOOVE them!
i just dont think the sugar is so neccessary! ha.

i would also suggest brewers yeast powder and garlic in the recipes too. great for their skin, coat. and parsley for the funky breath.  :-X

My vegetarian holistic vet says soy is not a good protein source for animals.  Considering dogs and cats are carnivores, better to find a recipe that doesn't contain milk if you want it to be vegan....which is not the best choice for a carnivore.  IMHO.

I agree -- variety is probably necessary for optimal health.  However, dogs are much more omnivorous than cats -- they can actually digest plant matter a lot better than cats can. 

Cats are totally obligate carnivores.  They should not be fed vegan diets, especially diets with lots of grain (which is totally undigestible for them).

That said, cats and dogs don't necessarily do too well with cow's milk-- I don't understand the emphasis on dry milk powder.  Yecch!

Thank you all so much for the recipes sent so far! If anyone has a different, vegan recipe, please send it in as well, but for now, I think I am going shopping for some pumpkin and trying Dinkfeet's!!! Thank you all so much, and I appreciate all of the help you have given me!

Wow, I am asking a ton of questions. Does anyone think bran flakes would be okay instead of the Cheerios or Corn Flakes called for in Dinkfeet's dog treat recipe? The last thing I want to do is get Sadie (my dog) sick on treats! Thanks!

**goes back to read the rules**  There it is.  Rule #7, 4th sentence.  Good thing bp is on it, eh?

I'm not sure about bran flakes, but on http://www.gentleworld.org/VEGAN/dogs-can-be-vegan-too.htm it states, "One teaspoon of bran aids in elimination, if necessary."  I have no idea about the quality of the site, tho'.
