Cheddar Cheese Dog Treats

Hello my lovelies…did you think I’d fallen off the face of the earth? With our travels through the Hudson River Valley to celebrate our anniversary, combined with 4th of July celebrations when we arrived home and then a lovely visit from my gal pal and her son from England, my blog has taken a back seat of late.  But I’m back and full of ideas to share with you!

If you know me at all, and my family for that matter, you know that we really ❤ our 4-legged baby, Flora. To quote my favorite nanny, she is ‘practically perfect in every way’ and makes us smile on a regular basis throughout each day.

Because she does bring us so much joy, we love doing things with and for her. She enjoys going on walks, hikes and car rides and especially loves swimming and snuggling.  She has not met a food she doesn’t like and so of course, adores her treats and goodies.

Every now and again Kate and I will make a batch of dog treats and recently we did make a batch of these cheddar cheese dog treats for Flora and some of her pup pals.

'Practically Perfect in Every Way' Flora on her throne.

Flora is quite the princess and wears a shiny gold collar with rhinestone-encrusted dog bones to prove it.

So…what’s in these most delectable dog treats? 

Whole Wheat Flour, while some foods leave out wheat, there is a benefit to dogs from whole wheat because it aids their digestion and is a great source of fiber and protein for those animals. These presumes your pet does not have an intolerance to the grain.

Coconut oil contain powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal agents that prevent infection and disease. Additionally it help make dogs’ coats shiny and can aid in digestion.

Honey is naturally high in enzymes and antioxidants Further, locally sourced honey can be very beneficial to aid those dogs suffering from allergies.

Eggs are a great source of very digestible protein, riboflavin, and selenium. Some folks even grind up the eggs shells and add to their pet’s food.

Cheddar Cheese provides beneficial proteins, enzymes, calcium and vitamins important to your pup’s health. Simple recipe to make your own dog treats. Ingredients includes whole wheat, honey, eggs & cheddar cheese, sure to please even the pickiest canine friend.

I used a good size cookie cutter, but if you have a smaller pup, you can easily use a much smaller cookie cutter…just mind the baking time as it will probably be much shorter.

These tummy yummy dog treats keep for several weeks in the pantry; however, ours haven’t stayed around long enough for us to determine their exact shelf life. Just to be sure, we do make sure that they are crisp when we put them in the pantry. Simple recipe to make your own dog treats.

      Thanks for swinging by Cathy and thanks for giving Flora a little love. She’s right with me as I type, sitting in one of her many ‘princess’ chairs. Love that you have a dog club! What a fun idea.
      Wishing you a lovely weekend.

    I’m pretty new to baking. After 30 yrs ith only a microwave, I finally do have a stove with an oven that works! So- are the cookies on a plain baking sheet, greased or lined with paper? Have you tried making cookies for Flora using oatmeal flour instead of the wheat flour and bran? My dogs are on a raw diet and I try to avoid grains as much as possible, but they do tolerate oats better than wheat.

      Hi Sandeleh, I have not tried the oat flour, but would surely give it a try and if you do please drop back and let me know how it worked out. We did use parchment paper on the baking sheets, but you could easily grease them or maybe you might not need anything. And enjoy your oven! I bet you are chomping at the bit to do some baking.
      Thanks for swinging by today and hope you have a lovely weekend.
      Hugs, Lynn

    Making your own dog biscuits is such a great idea Lynn. Healthy natural snacks are so important for our little companions. I’m sure they love the cheddar cheese flavor! :):)

      HI Ilka…the sad truth of the matter is that Flora would eat absolutely ANYTHING…whether is was good for her or not. Because we want to keep her healthy for as long as possible, we do endeavor to feed her as well as possible.
      Have a wonderful day!

    My sister had a kiosk at a big mall in Phoenix, years ago, selling homemade dog biscuits and treats. I still have some of her recipes and this is another one that I’ll add to all of them. I even have her copper dog bone cookie cutter. Thanks for this recipe, Molly will love it.

      Hi Carol…what a great job! Especially if the pups could come chose what treats they wanted! And from what I can tell, Miss Molly is practically perfect in every way too so gets her fair sure of home made goodies! Still keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers.
      Many Hugs, Lynn
