Homemade Dog Biscuit Oatmeal Treats to Bake at Home
Our furry friends and family members love getting gifts too. There is something truly special about baking homemade treats for those we love and goodness knows – we love our dogs. These biscuits could be done simply like a drop cookie but they are so darn cute when using shaped cookie cutters themed for those who bark and wag their tails. Jordan LOVES her furry family members so so much. I actually think sometimes she just might love them most. Well, anyway…she made these cute dog biscuits by mixing up some ingredients that we had on hand in the kitchen. Check it out and get ready to make a batch of Homemade Dog Biscuit Oatmeal Gifts of your own.
Ingredients for Dog Treats
- 1 1/2 C Flour
1 1/2 C Uncooked Oats
1 C Water
1 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 C Parmesan Cheese
Mix the ingredients until they form a dough ball.
Roll dough between two sheets of parchment paper until approximately 1/4 inch thick.
Use cutter to cut into fun shapes and put on ungreased cookie pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on tops. They are out of the oven and cooling off. The dogs were going nuts with the smells from the kitchen.
Let cool completely before giving them to your pups.
Packaging Homemade Dog Biscuit Oatmeal Treats
Sometimes the packaging really makes the gift. In this case, the biscuits are really good enough alone however tall cups with dome tops are super cute.
How darling are these. She could almost start a dog biscuit company. It could maybe pay for the medical school she plans to attend in 10 years. Ha ha ha. (UPDATED in March 2022 to share that Jordan is a full time student at MSU on a full scholarship.) The tags were made with my Puppy Flash Card die from Sizzix. It looks like Piper, doesn’t it?
Scout makes a great model. Piper is pretty good too, for a hound dog.

For me baking is a great way to express myself. I believe that it is a form of creativity. I am excited to share my TOP seven reasons to bake with you. Know that baking doesn’t need to be “from scratch” to count. It always counts even when it is only halfway homemade.
- Baking is like meditation. I find going through the steps of making a recipe to very calming and relaxing.
- Also, Baking stirs the senses, literally and figuratively.
- When I bake cookies, cakes, pies and treats; I find myself feeling creative and happy in my heart.
- Sometimes my kids bake with me and it creates a great time to bond and connect.
- Homemade treats make great gifts.
- Using recipes passed down from generations creates a magical connection to family.
- Honestly, baking boosts my morale. It is just plain good for the spirit.

Chocolate of course
Great post! Beautiful dogs! Favorite cake?–anything chocolate and with lots of frosting and creamy filling!
Looks like a good simple but CHEESY recipe for my pup- will try this week! Agree the packaging makes it a nice gift but let’s try to use recyclable or compostable or reusable packaging…yeah, sure they say plastic is recyclable but almost none ends up that way. What about a rustic looking brown paper box with a gingham bow? Mason jar, clay flower pot…. give it some thought!
