They contain only 3 simple ingredients and are super easy and quick to make. So, save some money buying store-bought treats and whip up a batch of these lovelies today.

Whole wheat flour
Eggs
Grated Cheddar cheese
Water.

Whole wheat flour

You can substitute whole wheat flour with plain if you don’t have any – whole wheat is a healthier option, though. Whole wheat flour consists of the whole wheat kernel and has a higher protein and fibre content. Plain will work just as well in this recipe.

Ground-up oats/oatmeal if your dog is gluten intolerant. Oatmeal is super healthy for dogs, and as the carbohydrates it contains are released slowly, they’ll keep your dog fuller for longer.

Eggs

Eggs are perfectly safe for dogs and are packed with protein, fatty acids, and vitamin A. Dogs should never eat raw or undercooked eggs as they can be a source of salmonella.

Cheddar Cheese

You can substitute other grated cheese. I find cheddar has a little more taste and oomph!
Plain cheese is an excellent source of calcium, protein and vitamins A & K. Never feed your pup blue cheese or one containing onion or garlic, as it can make them very sick.

The Ingredients

3 cups (339g) whole wheat flour
2 Eggs (large)
2/3 cup water (151g)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese (113g)

Equipment

Baking sheet
Parchment paper
Rolling pin
kitchen scales (optional)

Cookie Cutters

I love these bone shape cutters, but use whatever you have to hand.

Method

Preheat oven to 175C (350F). Line the baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix flour, eggs, cheese and water together in a large bowl to form a dough. Knead the dough well to incorporate all the ingredients.

Roll dough onto a lightly floured surface with a rolling pin to approx. 1/2-inch thick. If you prefer thicker treats, cook them for a little longer so they cook through and are crunchy.
Use a cookie cutter to cut out dog treats and transfer them to the baking sheet.
Bake the treats for 20-25 minutes.
Allow to cool completely before feeding the treats to your dog.

Stand back and watch those tails wag!

Storage

Store your cheddar cheese dog treats in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to a month. Defrost before feeding.

Freezing

These freeze well for up to 4 months in an airtight container or freezer bag. This recipe should make a batch of around 60 treats
