Nutty For Nut Bones: Grain-Free Treats Your Pooch Will Go Nuts For


This is a treat your dogs are bound to go nuts over!

Seriously, since I first created this homemade dog biscuit recipe a while back, I knew it would become one of my go-to pup snacks. Made with a mixture of almond and coconut flour, this easy-to-make treat is naturally grain-free (which I love). Plus, once baked, it creates a super crunchy texture (which my dogs love).

The Recipe

Grain-Free Nutty For Nut Bones Dog Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 2 cups super-fine almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Combine almond flour, coconut flour, ground flaxseeds, and ground ginger. Whisk together.
  • Add peanut butter and water. Mix together.
  • Knead mixture until it forms a dough ball.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll dough ball out to approximately 1/4 inch thick and use a cookie cutter to stamp out biscuits.
  • Bake in 350º oven for 18-20 minutes. They should come out crunchy!

Notes

Since this recipe is loaded with healthy fats, the dough will be a bit greasy. That's why, when rolling out this dough, I like to cover my dough ball with a piece of parchment paper and then use a rolling pin to flatten.
