Apple Carrot Dog Biscuits

We have 2 very rambuncious dogs that love to greet our guests at the front door. Alder, being a 6-month old Whoodle, and Haggis, a more mature 14-year-old Cairn Terrier.

Both adorable. In our eyes. But we’ve learned that not every guest is a dog-lover, so we have to quickly put our dogs away. In fact, I wrote a post awhile back on, Pet [Dog] Ettiquette when Entertaining.

How to Make BEST Apple Carrot Dog Biscuits

Dog treat recipe

You make as you would any other cookie, using your favorite shaped cookie cutter.

Make, bake, and allow to cool.

One reader used half almond flour and half all-purpose flour, adding 1 1/2 teaspoon of flax seeds, and they turned out great.

Then stack the treats, and tie together with a big bow. Place in brown paper bags (you can decorate, or buy decorated bags), and GIVE AWAY!

You can also spoil your own pooch with a bit of extra pizazz added to their stockings – homemade dog treats!

Use a small cookie cutter to make about 20-24 biscuits!

So watch the video and see how yummy and easy this recipe is to make! ENJOY!

Have you made homemade treats for your pets, and if so what’s a favorite combination?

How to Make Apple Carrot Dog Biscuits

Doggie favorites! Be sure to core your apple before grating.  Apple seeds aren’t good for dogs! Use a small cookie cutter for 20-24 biscuits. OPTION: Use half almond flour and half all-purpose flour, adding 1 1/2 teaspoon of flax seeds.
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time45 mins

Servings: 12 servings


  • 2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 cup carrots peeled and grated
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4-1/2 cup water note: the apples add moisture, so only add extra water if necessary


  • Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a cookie sheet.
  • Core and grate apples; peel and grate carrots (I used food processor).
  • In one bowl, mix the flour, oats, and brown sugar. In separate bowl, beat the egg and mix in the oil, water, and grated apples and carrots. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients bowl and mix completely.
  • Carefully roll ‘dough’ out and cut out desired shape with a small cookie cutter.

  1. Wanted to ask if substituting oat flour for whole wheat flour would work?

  3. Just made these, my dog absolutely loves them. I was worried I’d baked them too long or not enough but she seems to not mind. I’ve made them into bite size pieces rather than big biscuits as she’s only small.
    How many would you recommend she eats in a day?

  4. my pup would love these!

  5. Our dog would love these!

  6. Great recipe. I really appreciate it.

  7. I’m concerned about some of the ingredients. My dog has pancreatitis, is this really healthy for dogs with this condition? If not, how could I make it healthy or low fat?

  8. Wheat flour isn’t the best for dogs. I grind up oatmeal to replace the flour. 
    These are also great treats for horses. Just use a small cookie scoop and flatten slightly.

  11. I just made some for my puppy, Gracie, and I gave her a square of the dough and she loved it- now I’m baking them and I have to admit I’ve eaten a couple. (I added some pre-cooked bacon and the saltiness added to the sweet of the apple and the carrot is AMAZING. Seriously, these are human-grade good!

  12. Thanks for sharing! Do they keep long?

  13. This looks great! It would be fun to make with kids!

  14. If you use rice flour, the finished product will be harder.  I substitute wheat flour with gluten free flour or a combination flour like rye, oat and barley.

  17. I made these and my fur baby loves them. I don’t mind making treats at home even when I’m busy because at least I know what’s going into the treat. Thanks for sharing the recipe. This one is going to be a regulat recipe in our home now.

  19. I may have baked them too long. They are hard as a rock and I’m afraid they will break their teeth crunching on them. Anyone else have this concern?

  20. Totally doing this! I’ve been wanting to make my own treats for our dogs but I haven’t found a recipe I really liked. This one sounds like something they’d love.

  21. Why use oil? If you’re making treats then they should be healthy for the dog.
