Calling all who love to bake and all who love to bark – we’ve got something special for you! Everyone enjoys a sweet treat, especially our four-legged friends. Slipping our pups a little something special is a great way to show them some love and appreciation.

Beyond the use as a training tool, treats add some sparkle to your dog’s day and remind them that you’re one of the good ones. Bake them up! You’ll have fun in the process and you’ll know for sure that these treats will be made with love and wholesome ingredients. Here is a simple recipe for delicious vegan dog treats that will surpass any store-bought items you can find.

Ingredients for Wondercide homamade dog biscuits set next to a white mixing bowl and red dog bone cookie cutters

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour or almond flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast (to taste)
  • 1/2 cup xylitol-free nut butter. Xylitol is toxic to dogs so it’s important to read the labels. Go for unsweetened almond or peanut butter.
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup water


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.A hand preheats an oven to 350 degrees

2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, rolled oats, and nutritional yeast.

3. Separately, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt the nut butter until it reaches a consistency that’s easy to stir.

4. When ready, mix in the melted nut butter, applesauce, and water into the dry ingredients. You’ll know you’re done mixing when a dough starts to form.

5. Spread the flour on a flat surface and roll out the dough overtop to about 1/4 inch thickness.

6. If you have a specific design in mind, cut the dough using a designated cookie cutter, or simply cut out bite-sized shapes with a knife.

7. Place some parchment paper on a baking sheet and then layer on the treats.

8. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the treats crisp to a golden brown color.
