Blueberry Dog Treats

Just like blueberries are good for you, they are also fabulous for your dog. These Blueberry Dog Treats are loaded with antioxidants that protect cells, cognitive function, prevent cancer, and heart disease. They make a perfect treat for your pup’s health. These yummy healthy dog treats can also be made with cranberries, blackberries, strawberries, or raspberries. You will notice I use ground flax seed a lot in my dog treat recipes, this is a great ingredient to use in place of some of the flour in your favorite recipes- flax seed contain a punch of omega 3’s, and fiber that can benefit your dog’s health. Finally Greek yogurt adds a heap of protein, all of these ingredients combine together to create an amazingly healthy and tasty snack for your pup.

Hello Anna! Thank you for pointing that out. I fixed the recipe to include those instructions now. “Fold blueberries and yogurt into dry ingredients, add a bit of water if necessary to hold dough together.” I hope that helps. Thanks for stopping by! :)

My dog has severe allergies, and we have recently started making her food. I would love to make her treats as well but I’m having a hard time finding recipes that don’t include wheat, oats, or peanut butter. She can have the flax, but could the wheat and oats be replaced with rice, or barley…..or anything else. I’m still new to making all this, so I’m not knowledgeable of all replacements, or exchanges. Thanks in advance :-)

Do these stay soft or do they harden up after they bake?

My one year old Malti-Tzu loves these. I made a batch to send home with my Friendsgiving people.

Got me thinkin’. How ’bout a dog biscuit exchange instead of a cookie exchange this holiday season?

Can you make this without using ground flax seeds? If so, how much flour would you use instead – 1-3/4 cups?

Thanks for reading.

I did use flax seeds. I used an extra one fourth cup of flour instead. Turned out fine.

Sorry about that comment. I DID NOT use flax seed at all.

I just left the flax seeds out when I made these.
