Dog biscuits

These lovely treats were taken from the book Cooking for Your Dog by Ingeborg Pils and make a lovely Christmas gift for that special pooch. They are a honey-sweetened digestive type biscuit baked in dog bone shapes, and so are just as suitable for humans (in my case children) to eat if they can't resist trying them too (mine couldn't.)

Honey Dog Biscuits


  • 150g wholemeal flour
  • 150g porridge oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 30g butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 100ml milk


  • Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl
  • Rub in the butter
  • Add the eggs, honey and milk and knead to a soft dough
  • Roll out to about 1cm thick and cut out with a bone shaped cutter if you've got one (for the kids, the dog won't care much) or circles
  • Bake at 200 degrees C/400 degrees F/gas mark 6 for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown
  • Turn off the oven and leave the biscuits in the cooling oven to dry out
  • Serve to lucky dog or wrap up and give as presents (to other lucky dogs)
