I have been making my own dog biscuits for my dog Miss Luna for a while now. It’s actually super easy and to see her face light up is priceless. Whoever said that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, clearly never had a dog! I’m sure your dog will love these dog biscuits!

A word of warning though, it’s best you consult with your vet first in case your pooch has any allergies to grains.


  • 1 sweet potato (steamed and mashed)
  • ¼ cup of chopped carrots
  • 1 cup of spelt flour
  • ½ cup instant oats
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped mint
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped parsley
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons of peanut butter (xylitol-free, very important!)


  1. Preheat over to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Combine flour and instant oats in a large bowl and put aside.
  3. Mix sweet potato, carrots, mint, parsley, water, coconut oil, peanut butter until smooth.
  4. Add half of the wet mixture to flour mixture and stir through. Then add remainder and stir well with a wooden spoon / spatula.
  5. Add extra water slowly if needed.
  6. Use your hands to knead the dough together.
  7. Roll dough out to about 1.5cm thickness. You might need to cover with baking paper or a silicone baking sheet to avoid sticking.
  8. Remove baking paper and cut biscuits using a cookie cutter of your choice.
  9. Re-roll remainder dough and cut until you’ve used all the dough… be as creative as you can!
  10. Place biscuits on baking tray. Bake for 20 mins or until the top of biscuits have dried out completely.
  11. Let biscuits cool down and they can be stored in air tight container for up to 5 days.

I would love to hear from you and am super keen to find out about the treats you make for your pooch. Follow me on Instagram @MissSusanM
