How to Make Dog Biscuits with Applesauce

by Lori Lapierre

Use homemade or purchased applesauce in your dog's favorite biscuits.

Making homemade dog biscuits is as simple as baking cookies, and they're a healthy and inexpensive alternative to commercially prepared biscuits. While applesauce is a tasty and healthy additive to your dog's favorite treat, it can also be easily substituted for some or all of the oil in the recipe.

Step 1

Give the cookie sheets a light coating of baking spray, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Pour the flour, oats and baking powder into the mixing bowl; stir the dry mixture with the spoon.

Step 3

Add the peanut butter and applesauce, and stir the mixture thoroughly. It will turn into a dough.

Step 4

Scrape the dough out of the mixing bowl with a spatula onto a countertop or cutting board sprinkled with additional flour. Knead the dough for one to two minutes until it is smooth.

Step 5

Roll the dough out to a quarter-inch thickness; use cookie cutters to make desired shapes. Place them on the cookie sheets.

Step 6

Bake the biscuits for 25 minutes; they should be slightly browned. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the tray for a few minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 7

Store the biscuits in an airtight container in the pantry or refrigerator.
